felt vs. non slip saddle pad liner?

I need advice. Sorry about a similar question but I don't know how to delete the other one. Right now I have a weaver contoured western saddle pad and its god a fleece bottom which of course starts to slip after awhile and its wet. So until I can save up money to buy a 5 star saddle pad I want to get a liner to help with the slipping. Im looking at either the Dura_Tech western non slip liner seen here Dura-Tech® Western Non-Slip Pad Liner in Work/Protective at Schneider Saddlery

Or cashels felt liner seen here Felt Liner Western Saddle Pad by Cashel: Over 70,000 sq.ft. Of Western Boots, Jeans, Clothes, Tack & More - Horsetown Western Stores

So please let me know. Thanks for helping

Have you tried a Navajo blanket?

I tried something similar to the top one, only smaller for an English saddle, and it didn't do much. I've had better luck with cheap, acrylic/wool blend Navajo blankets, or with something like this:

Wool Felt Contour Pad

isnt that pretty much the same thing as the second one from cashel just more exspensive and thicker?

Wool is your best bet as it helps wick moisture away from the horse. The think wool pad would be good under the pad you are using as it's not very thick, or throw a double'd blanket on top.

well I just ordered a diamond contoured wool felt saddle pad and its 1'' thick so think I probably wont need a liner.
