    Thermo Manager Baby Pad is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 57.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this pad! I've bought 3 of these, 2 for myself and 1 as a gift. I LOVE them! They are so soft ad resist stains so well, even the white one! Everyone in the barn comments on how nice this pad is!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my second purchase! This is my favorite baby pad! Unlike other pads I have uses, these are stretchy, so they fit more smoothly under my regular pad. They also stay cleaner longer, because dirt and hair doesn't stick to it.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not bad just not what I expected. I purchased 3 of these with plans to have them embroidered, but the material was not what I expected so I ended up returning them. I can't really speak to the quality because I didn't actually use them. They are more than a little stretchy which I didn't think I would like. As always super easy returns with smartpak's great customer service!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorite pad I've had these pads for about a month and I love them! They wear and wash extremely well. I have a hard time finding saddle pads that fit my very forward flap saddle, but these work great. My horse seems to sweat less with this pad. I also like that there is a little bit of stretch to it - as non stretchy fabric can sometimes have an uncomfortable fit. They looks brand new after they've been washed and monograming adds a really nice touch. I've gotten many compliments.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I really like this baby pad. I ordered it in white with black trim; with my barn logo and name embroidered on it, it's very striking. I also really like the weight of the Thermo Manager fabric.The only real issue I've had with this pad is slipping. I use a non-slip pad and plan to sew on my own girth loops to help with the problem, but right now it bunches up behind my leg as soon as I start jumping.Overall, very attractive pad for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorite schooling pad I bought 2 of these in black and just love them. They are a little stretchy and made of a sort of shinny fabric that does a great job repelling dirt. I feared they would slip being made out of that fabric but they don't. We took 2 horses on an 8 mile hunter pace with these saddle pads and they stayed in place just fine. They are a little thicker than a traditional baby pad which is nice. Can't beat the price with the USEF discount! I loved them so much that I bought 2 more in white to save for the jumper ring!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great baby pad this pad is awesome, just the right amount of stretch and not too big like some baby pads. it's nice and light weight for the summer and so far has some out of the wash great. and they look sharp monogrammed. i will definately be ordering more of these!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! I really like this pad. Time will tell on durability as I have only used it a couple of times. It's a little stretchy, which I like. Not sure about the moisture wicking/Thermo-manager properties of it, but that certainly isn't stopping me from buying a second one!
    Date published: 2013-05-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Baby Pad I've Ever Used I LOVE this pad. It's kind of stretchy, which makes it easier to manipulate to make sure it lays flat under the saddle. Anyone who has used a bunch of baby pads knows that sometimes it takes a little finagling to get the completely flat pads to lay smoothly on a horse's back. This one eliminates that issue. It's also dust and hair resistant and a lovely deep color. I just wish it came in more colors! I will definitely be getting more of them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice pad! I really like this pad!! Its thin enough that I can use my mattes pad over it, which I like. The emboirdery looks awesome on it as well!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these pads! These wonderful pads (I bought two) have done away with my old dislike of baby pads. They're not contoured, but they stretch. I bought them because I needed pads to keep my Mattes sheepskin clean, and they're just big enough to do the job. Their texture is silky but somehow not slippery. I don't know about their thermal management properties because it's still cold here. I was taking them home to wash today so I attacked the thick layer of white winter coat stuck to their backs. I hung them (one at a time, duh) over a blanket bar. Using a VERY soft round curry and working horizontally, I got about 85% of the hair off. I was surprised and pleased, and they will go home for washing some other time. They look great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Quality Baby Pad A friend recommended this pad to use under my Mattes Dressage Sheepskin Pad and I couldn't be more pleased. I was concerned that it would slip around because of the fabric but it stays put beautifully. It is large enough that it actually sticks out a little under my dressage pad which helps keep my expensive Mattes pad clean. I had it customized with my horse's name so if I forgot it in the barn people would know who it belonged to. The Book Script looks fabulous and only took a few days before it arrived at my house. I highly recommend this pad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks and feel great! I purchased the black baby pad and got my initials put on it. I use this pad for schooling at shows and at home. it doesnt get dirty easily, I've washed it a couple times, and still looks brand new. It hasnt dulled out at all. over all a very good purchase and my horse looks great in it

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great buy this does not rub at all. My fleece pad stays clean and nice longer! Does not have a rigid spine that caused rubs like on other pads. Easily moves with the horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Pad My origianal Thermo Manager baby pad was purchased over 5 years ago and it still looks new. I use it approximately 4 times a week and it washes very well and holds up extremely well. I use it under a sheepskin half pad. I also purchased a white one to school in at shows and it too washes really well and remains bright white. It is big enough to keep my half pad off my horses back which keeps the half pad cleaner.

    Date published: 2012-07-12
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great light weight pad This is a really nice-looking, thin pad. It seems to fit my quarter horse really well, and dries quickly after a hard work-out. My only issue is not with the pad itself, but the personalization. The symbol I picked was a good size, but the letters are tiny and hard to read from more than a few feet away. It would be nice to have had the lettering larger, or at least that option.
    Date published: 2012-06-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pad! I use this pad under a Mattes pad to keep the Mattes lambs wool clean and reduce the need to wash the pad. This pad absorbs sweat well, just as advertised, washes without changing shape and air dries quickly. I have two of them so I always have a clean one on hand.
    Date published: 2012-05-08
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pad I bought this because I have a hard working haflinger who sweats a lot. I got it personalized with my name, and it's wonderful! Doesn't slip, fits him great, and looks absolutely beautiful. He still has some of his winter coat, so I can't really tell if it helps a whole bunch with sweating, but it looks great with my fleece half pad. I love it!
    Date published: 2012-03-26
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Alright I got this pad and was exceptionally pleased with the material, it is very soft but also just thick enough, it doesn't get stretched paper thin but it isn't too fat, It is perfectly plushy. I used it the next day and it looked great and fit under my saddle perfectly. The only big downfall was that by the end of my ride it had slipped really far back and I think the only thing that stopped it from going even further back was the ThinLine contour pad I was using on top of it. My mom's a good hand at sewing so I may have her put some girth loops onto it but I'm going to see if this is a reoccurring issue first.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase! I love these pads! They keep the back cool and look great! Sometimes the pads like to slip back while I ride, but usually stay put when the pad is clean. I would purchase again and again!
    Date published: 2012-01-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value! This is my second Thermo Manager pad. They are a little thicker than some of my other baby pads but not too thick or bulky. And just the right length from front to back. I purchased the white with black trim and got it monogrammed in black. Thanks SmartPak - it looks so classy!
