The description of the pad says "dual" felt and for the materials it says : felt. I was vey surprised when it arrived and found a "rubber" type backing on it. Yes, if you want non-slip you need a "grip" type backing, but a large rug with furniture on it isn't going anywhere! I just want something to cushion the rug. Also, I did not realize that when you are talking rug pads, "felt" means "jute felt." It is NOT soft. It's a combination of felt & jute fibers. It feels somewhat like an outside doormat. It scratched my arms when I gripped it to pull it out of the shipping wrapper and I certainly don't want it directly on my new hardwood floors. I'm sure this is a good pad if it is what you're looking for, but if you are looking for cushion only, this might not be for you. I found a pad at another site that is for cushioning only, with the jute felt side to go next to the rug and a soft side to go on the floor. It does cost twice as much, but in the long run will probably be worth it.

This is a very good rug pad for the price. The quality is superior and it feels really good under your feet. I bought it bigger because I needed a pad for two rugs. I cut out the pieces I needed and put one under a wool carpet and one under a very thin hooked carpet in the hallway and they both feel very soft and smooth to walk on now.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It is just a little bit darker and more speckled looking, but it does not matter anyway since it goes under the rug

This is the third rug pad of its kind that I have ordered from Overstock. It is excellent quality and offers great padding, protection for rug and floor, and traction without sticking. It is also easy to cut if you need to trim it for size. And of course, the price makes it unbeatable. I recommend this brand to everyone! Maybe someday if I have a super fancy or valuable rug to put down, I'll splurge and try the "premium" but for now the "superior" is all we need...

I bought this pad to go under a sisal rug on a tile floor. The pad works perfectly. We haven't had any movement and the padding gives a little added cushion on the tile flooring. Exactly what I needed!
As some of the other reviewers mentioned, it would be nice if they shipped this rolled instead of folded, then rolled. This pad is fairly thin with the rubberized side to face down so the rug stays in place. I think it is a great design, just not as thick as I would hope for the price...otherwise it serves the purpose.
The pad is of excellent quality, and works beautifully under oriental rugs. The only problem is that the pad comes all folded up and it takes several weeks for the pad to lay flat. We laid the pad; then the rug, and waited several weeks before it lay completely flat. I would rate the recommend to a friend as a maybe. If you have time to wait for the pad to settle and smooth out, then its definitely worth the money.
