Pads for riders behind comfort

I’ve never had one and was fine. But I’m starting to ride more and was looking too invest in my butts comfort with a cushion of some kind to make longer rides comfortable for me and warmer in the winter. What do you use and like?

I've had that one (and several others). They never seem to stay put for me and always end up being more of pain than anything. The only thing I've found that works is a full sheepskin cover.

Another vote for a full sheepskin cover. I bought one for my son and he made the mistake of letting me borrow it.

No, those are the styles that will slide and get hot. Here's a full sheepskin for a western saddle, they also have options that don't go down over the fenders but I haven't tried those yet so I can't speak for them.

Thanks I’ll have to see if I can find those. I don’t think I want it all the way down the fenders as I can see burrs and branches getting caught it it.

I use this one for my kids etc. and for when I need a pad. Works really really well but it is so think and comfy it really shrinks how much room you have in your saddle so it helps to get like an inch larger than you need saddle to put it in:

Anything worth doing, is worth doing well.
