Most people don't want to spend much on something that is invisible and largely unnoticed. In this case, this pad is well worth the money. Not only does my rug stay put, the pad helps protect my hardwood floor from anything that might sift through the rug onto the floor. (I have big dogs that do everything in a big way. Eat. Roll. Run. Chew. Throw up. Etc.) So far my floor is protected, the rug feels softer, and I'm pleased enough to plan to put this pad under any future rug I might buy on Overstock.
It states that the pad is 0.25" thick. It is barely 1/8" thick. We needed the rug pad to match another so they needed to be the same width. NOw we have to send it back which is a pain, because the rug pad is so huge.

If you are looking to keep your rug from moving, add slight cushion, add minimum height on a hardwood floor- and for a good price- buy it! I have bought for a 9x12 wool family room rug and a chunky fiber 8x10 kitchen rug and am very pleased. I have used various pads under various rugs on hardwood floors (typically bought what was sold with the rug) and feel this is the best type of pad for rugs I have and the floor. Delivery was fast, no smell to pad. Makes me realize mesh type pads are cheesy.
It hides perfectly under under our rug. It's got good grip and adds a little padding too.

Works well, I ordered an 8'x10' area rug at the same time to go on top of this pad. The pad is doing its job and keeping the brittle backing of the rug off of our hardwood floors.

Nice rug pad. It did smell a bit for a couple of weeks but I would still recommend it.

As my husband says: It has to sing to me to give it 5 stars, but as rug pads go, this seems quite good, and serves the purpose. Holds the Dhurrie rug in place beneath dining table, and allows the chairs to slide without going along with them.
I am in a power wheelchair, but still like to have area carpets in my home. This carpet padding, put on with double-sided carpet tape, can handle the abuse that my power wheelchair makes. I have gradually changed all the carpet padding throughout the house, and no longer have any problems with my wheelchair getting caught up in the carpet. Wonderful product!
This felt pad provides some cushioning under our rugs, instead of having them directly on our hardwood floors. The pads DO make a difference, but I could have wished for more. I was able to trim them to size with ordinary household scissors.
