I ordered an all-purpose pad because I wanted something thick for everyday wear, but also a pad that I would be happy to have in pictures and videos. I was very impressed when this pad arrived. It is thick, well-made, and the size is exactly what I was expecting. I worry that the little piping will come off or get frayed easily, because even after the first ride, it had been rubbed quite a bit. However, that is the least of my worries if the rest of the pad holds up well. I would certainly recommend this pad to a friend.
