Best English Girths??

I;m looking for a good girth that I could use when I do my hunter shows this season. What are your favorite girths??

I don't own it, but I've heard really good things about the Clik girth by Lettia:
Dover Saddlery | Lettia Clik Girth .
Its really cool because its spring loaded. So it clicks into place on its own!

We use these girths at my barn:
Dover Saddlery | Shires Fleece Girth .
Not this exact one. The double elastic is great and the fleece prevents chaffing. One thing is that it's not very proper, so in hunter shows it may not be the best. I've also found these girths to give uneven pressure.

I really like this girth. Its fairly formal and very comfortable for the horse. Again, I'm not sure how appropriate for the hunter ring it is. My horse really likes this girth, especially how it equalizes pressure well.

I use Pro Choice girths (Dover Saddlery | Professionals Choice SMX Girth.) on everything: western saddle in past, jumping saddle, and now dressage.

I have always used a fabric fleece girth (not the new fancy kind with leather backing) with elastic on both ends.

This girth came with my saddle and I really like it. Quality soft leather and isnt bulky in any way. I havent tried anything else on my horse, so I cannot recommend it over another type :)

I have Stübben leather girth and I'm very satisfied with it.
