I buy all my rug pads from Overstock - good quality for a lot less money than at rug shops. The pads are not too soft or too thick and are extremely dense and stable. Because of possible VOC emissions, I just placed the pad outside for a couple days to air out before using.
I wouldn't say I was disappointed, since it's just a rug pad that will never be seen, but it is very thin and provides almost ZERO cushion. It has a lot of surface debris that makes it feel like a dried, crusty wash cloth that cleaned up last night's amorous encounter. I suspect the 'crust' is from the adhesive they use to keep all the debris together. It's also TOO BIG for a 5' x 8' rug. I had to cut the damn thing with tin snips, which too forever due to the rubbed-backed bottom, because it stuck out all four sides of the rug. It's only really good to keep your rug from moving around on your hard-surface floor. I would not buy this product again; instead, I would just go with a rubber anti-skid web thingy.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Not really applicable, since it's an item that will always be hidden, but product is darker and "crustier."
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality is just okay. It's made from recycled stuff. What that 'stuff' is is anyone's guess.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Not very accurate. Website says it's 5' x 8'. It's actually 5'4" x 8'4". Also, description says it has a "maximum cushion" pad. That is entirely untrue. I would say it has a "minimum cushion" pad -- the lowest kind of cushy pad before you get to those thin rubber webbing anti-skid pads.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this carpet pad. We bought several to go under rugs in our new house. They not only add a little cushion under foot, but they protect the wood floor and keep the rug from slipping. I highly recommend it!
this padding is thick and dense and will provide good protection for your carpets. They feel so much more plush and luxurious with the extra padding underneath. I cut the padding to size with kitchen shears and it does not move at all
To be honest, I was expecting this to have a "new carpet" smell to it but it didn't. For that, I am thankful! It lays flat (for the most part) right off the tube. It was packaged in heavy plastic which protected it during shipping. NO SLIPPING. It stays right where you put it.
Do love the pad but didn't like that it came about an inch larger on one side and had to cut. Thick and difficult. Pad IS well made. Bought the same brand as the rug thinking I wouldn't have a size problem. BUT, after cutting, am very pleased.
Can this pad be cut? I would need to get a 5x8 pad, but my rug is roughly a 5.5 ft square, so that's quite a bit I'd need to trim.

Yes but it is tough to cut. I used a pair of garden scissors which are very sharp (not shears) scissors and it cut quickly.ainsly on May 14, 2014
Yes it can be cut, you would need a very sharp knife. My husband cut ours to fit our rug. When cutting the mat a lot of white residue comes off..that is the only part I do not like about it.momtothepowerof4 on Jul 30, 2014
We had to cut ours as it was just a bit too large for our rug by same manufacturer....don't let overhang as it will constantly shed when walked upon...pickyreviewer on Aug 13, 2014
