Equine Comfort half pad?

I've been really thinking about getting a half pad for the support of my geldings back. At almost 15, he's just not handling the 5 hours in the saddle, showing as well as he used to. He's a little sore by the end, but works of out it by the end of the next day, so it's nothing major, but enough for me to need to do something about it.
Both saddles fit great, so that's not the problem. He's just getting older, and with the days shorter now, I haven't been able to work him as steadily, so these winter circuit shows are harder on him.
I've also increased his warm-up time, and started doing some different stretches on him before and after every ride to help with this.

My main thing is, I don't want something big and bulky under his back, as that would just do more harm than good, since saddle fit isn't a problem.

I saw this one and liked it, but I'm not familiar with the brand.

What does anyone know about them?
Not near the design as ThinLine, but would it provide enough support? Or should I just save up for the ThinLine Trifecta?

I'm a huge thinline fan so if it were me i'd save and get the thinline.

I'd suggest to rather save for Thinline. I doubt this pad provides too much of protection.
