Well, I actually had a Supracor, which I liked, but frankly the cover was a bit cheezy, and I thought the felt was pretty thin. The horse tended to sweat a lot under it, IMO. I sold that and went on here to see what everyone liked.....and got the 5 star. I LOVE IT! It is all felt, I got the 1/2", since I like to put pads over it, but my friend just got the 3/4 inch. They are truly awesome. Soft, great quality, contour close contact shape available, and my guy rarely sweats at all, except under the cinch.

Found an impact gel pad at a localish retailer, are they any good?
I think I might ask for a 5 star for Christmas if I can't find anything good.

Gel is good...just remember to have it in an area were the gel wont harden cause of the will warm up over time when you ride in the winter so I guess it doesnt matter.

My wife has a classic equine felt pad. I never liked it - always felt flimsy to me

I have a 5-star felt pad and love it. With virtually no maintenance it has held up well for a few years of use.

I've never noticed the Impact Gels getting stiff in the winter. The Professional's Choice pads, yes, although they warm up just fine as soon as you saddle the horse. But I never noticed that with the Impact Gels. Maybe it depends on your climate. It doesn't get much colder than the teens here, and I probably never ride in weather colder than the mid 20's. The Impact Gels have held up great for me for several years now.

Ya it gets a lot colder here in NW Ohio. If we are lucky in the winter to get into the 20's in the day we are lucky. At night with wind chill it gets below 0.
