They're also good about using photos and information from your saddle fitter to create the perfect pad for you.

ThinLine pads are nice if you need only very minor adjustment. The Trifecta pads are my choice. Their "saddle fitter" pad is more limited in your shim options.

Mattes is WAY overpriced IMO. I like Fleeceworks much better for that type of pad. Their quality is just as good, but the price is so much more reasonable.
See but that's the whole issue I have with the skito pads is the compressibility. I can't even put Merino wool or sheepskin under my saddle - it just doesn't work. What happens is the fleece or wool of airy foam acts to lift the saddle off of the back and puts all this air underneath it for the saddle to glide around on.
And that is all I am looking for is a minor adjustment. Right now all I have is 1/4" in the back and about 1/8" in the front, including the pad.
The problem with the Fleeceworks is that it doesn't come without the fleece, and the pads are flimsy. For $40 more, the quilted Mattes correction is a way better option for me.
As far as the Thinline - I wouldn't be getting the Saddle fitter, I would most likely be getting the trifecta again because of the fleece.
