Wither Relief Half Pads - Opinions Please!

I recently was at my local tack shop and found an incredible E.A Mattes Sheepskin Half Pad specifically designed for a high withered horse, including a traditional wither cut out. Unfortunately, they no longer work with the vendor who had supplied those pads.

I can't seem to find the exact pad online anywhere so I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on alternative pads, including your own opinions on them?

My mare had been used as a broodmare and therefore her top-line is lacking. We've developed her top-line as much as possible through lots of trot work on the lunge line, but her withers are still quite pronounced. She will return to training this spring and before she is enters a training program I want to assure that she is comfortable under saddle (we have been casually hacking her out in western tack up until now). I've attached some images of her for reference. The first image is of her and her last foal, before she became a part of our family. The second image was taken this month. Any feed back would be much appreciated :)

I'm currently considering the following pads:
