Opinions on Toklat Woolback girths?

Hello and happy new year everyone!

I'm looking for a new dressage girth because my current one has no elastic and no rings for the breast plate. I've been saving up and I want to get something that is quality, long lasting, and perhaps more importantly, very functional and comfortable for the horse.

Here's what I'm looking at right now: Toklat Woolback Dressage Girth

The added grip of the wool would be really nice for my rolly-polly pony. I've also read that wool disperses pressure more evenly. On the other hand, I'm concerned that the wool might become perpetually mud colored or just get filled with burrs and seeds right away. I'll be trail riding a lot so the burrs are a big concern for me.

Does anybody have a Toklat woolback girth? Or a woolback anything? Are you happy with it? Would you recommend something different?

Do you think it is overpriced?
ETA: Oh, I almost forgot to ask! Does the elastic add significant length to a girth? I'm wondering if I'd need to get one slightly shorter than my current, non-elastic girth.

Thanks you guys! The tack reviews on this forum are a life saver!

I am here to learn! :)
