My neighbor bought a couple Classic Equine memory foam pads and they compressed pretty bad where the saddle sits after only maybe a year or less of trail riding. Something I wouldn't expect from an almost $200 pad. So I was disappointed in them even though they weren't mine.
I like the Impact Gels, not even because of the gel, but just because they are a quality felt contour pad.
If I were to buy another pad, I would just look for a high quality wool felt contour pad.
I have several of the Professional's Choice pads too. They are fine if you have a perfect saddle fit, but they won't do much to help pressure points if you don't. I prefer good quality wool felt myself.
