Thanks everyone!! Sadly ANY of the thinline pads are way out of my budget, i'll look around on craigslist or something for a used one.
Found a used mattes for only $60, hoping it's in good condition as the price makes me skeptical but I emailed for some pictures anyways!

I recently got a Fleeceworks Perfect Balance with the therawool, which ended up being around $120. It feels a lot more plush than cheap sheepskin pads, but using wool as opposed to sheepskin saves some money. I am not sure if it holds up as well, though of course the company claims it does. I haven't had it long enough to really say, but it certainly seems nice.

If you have a 16.5 inch saddle or smaller, you can get a small Engel pad for pretty cheap. Mine was about $60. The mediums run higher but you can get a lower price on eBay. Always try eBay!

I love my mattes pad. I bought mine on eBay for 150, it was very much worth it!
