A "soft saddle" ... what the heck?

Saw this today while I was looking for bareback pads online: Tough-1 Square Bareback Trail Soft Saddle - Statelinetack.com

Unfortunately I can't post a picture. Looks saddle-ish but it's made of heavy-duty polyester with "a foam cantle and swell that will offer the rider security that is not available in other bareback pads." Detachable saddle bags, D-rings to hold other accessories, seems to come in one-size-fits-"all" adult.

It's different (probably too different) ... but has anybody here ever used one?

I think its more like a bareback pad with "stuff". Kinda cool if you look at it that way.

I've never seen this particular one, but Cashel makes and sells something rather similar for quite a while. Although most people told me it's a waste of money and it's better to go with the real saddle or get a (much cheaper) bareback pad.

I thought about it and I like the price and features. What stops me is that only one size is available. Neither horses nor butts come in a single predictable size, so I wonder how comfortable it would be for somebody outside whatever their "predicted norm" happens to be.

It's cool looking, but that fabric seems like it would be really slippery.
