Impact Gel Saddle Pad

Does anyone know if the different fenders wear more than others on the impact gel pads? I really want the camo but I'm afraid that it will wear out too fast :( And what type of material is the camo? If anyone knows :P

I have no clue. But I do know that Impact Gel seems to be a quality brand and I doubt that any of their pads would wear out very quickly unless not properly cared for.

If you are worried about what type of material it is, you could try to contact Impact Gel and find out.

Thank you, I think I'm just going to go with the standard leather. It will match the rest of my tack better anyway :)

The thing about gel pads is that the gel displaces under pressure. So the exact spots you want the gel to be to provide cushion, is exactly where it isn't.

I own an impact gel saddle pad (just got it)... biggest thing is don't leave it out at the barn if its cold, as the gel will freeze. It doesn't ruin the pad, just isn't a nice feeling on the horse's back. But other than that I love it! And so does my horse!

Lamb western saddles.....Anyone?

Ugh, I'm so sorry I accidentally posted my saddle question here, so please ignore the title in bold.

As for Impact Gels, I love them! I never had one freeze, but all of mine are older versions. If they freeze, that must be something new. :(

Ha ha! Well, I am in northern Arizona and we do get down into single digits sometimes on cold winter nights. Of course I am not riding in the single digits though! I like it to be above freezing when I ride.

I have had my impact gel pad for 6-7 years now, got it when they first came out, it had held up great and still looks close to new. I have never noticed it freezing before, and up here in alberta, and before that manitoba, it gets pretty darn cold!
