Western pad for under show blanket--suggestions?

Anyone have suggestions on a good brand of pad to put under a thin show blanket? I'm considering these but would like some input.

32"x32" Therapeutic Wool Showman Western Saddle Pad-5 | eBay
Professional's Choice SMx Air Ride HD Pad in 6 Colors | eBay

Looking for a plain black or gray. Ideally, it will fit my Thoroughbreds (both take a medium tree) and my Paso (also a medium tree), and with any luck, also my Perch. I don't want to spend a ton of money, but I do want a quality pad.

5 star all the way. I got one last spring and LOVE it Still looks brand new. You can choose your shape and thickness (I use 1/2" when I am using my "pretty pad" over it.....), and I love the butterfly shape myself (close contact) and they are one of the few 100% wool that offer that. I have yet to ever hear anyone say anything bad about them.

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

They're pretty pricy, but you might be able to find one for a decent price on eBay, but I know a couple people who swear by Impact Gel pads. There's one for sale by me for $140 and I wish I had money to buy it.
