I needed rug pads for small and large area rugs for my home. I heard that the felt pads were a better quality than the waffle latex pads so I bought these in numerous sizes. They are made very well..with one size a scratchy surface that you place the rug on to keep it from slipping. This part is very effective. The rug stays on the pad without a problem. The bottom had a rubber backing which is supposed to keep your area rug in place. This part isn't very effective. The whole thing rug and pad slide and I have to keep adjusting it's placement. If you use this where you will place furniture on top then it will be very effective and give the carpet a nice cushy feel. The latex runner ones that I had before stuck to my floor and the waffle design on the hardwood which was very hard to remove. Although these pads aren't perfect I still continue to buy them because the trade off is worth it. They protect my carpet and my floors which is what is most important.
This rug pad gives a little cushion and the rug doesn't slide around. Very happy with this purchase.

I'll never buy those thin rubber honey comb pads again! Based on the reviews of this pad, I purchased one for my rug in front of my door (tiled floor, high traffic area), the rug feels thick & comfortable due to the thickness of the pad, stays in place, no movement at all. Am very pleased with this product.
This is a great rug pad. We placed it under a 5' X 8' rug on porcelain tile in a major traffic area, and the rug feels wonderful to walk on and hasn't moved a bit over the last several weeks. I went with a friend to a local rug store, and the salesman tried to sell her a similar 8' X 10' pad for $XXX. I had to trim mine with scissors as my rug was oddly sized, and while I wouldn't say it was a breeze, it cut easily enough. Not only would I recommend it to a friend, I already have to several!
I like to support world market vendors and most times I am not disappointed. This rug exceeded my expections in the quality of workmanship, vibrant colors and weaving technique. It is a colorful small rug which I now have by my vanity in the bath room. It is much better than a dull and ordinary bath room rug from the store. This is a truly unique rug made by someone's hand and I think it is quite attractive.

These pads are a MUST for any rug you buy, especially wool. They make the rug stand out and last longer too! The only issue I have with them is that they're quite costly, but still worth the investment. They also prevent rugs from shifting on the hardwood floor, which is a huge plus - this is especially important for a smaller-size rugs and runners.

I needed these pads for rugs on a laminate wood surface which covers a concrete slab. They definitely added cushioning, but I was hoping for something more plush like the padding under wall-to-wall carpeting. In retrospect, I suppose that would create a tripping hazard. So, these are probably better in that regard. They still slip slightly, not enough to create a problem, but IF your surface floor is slippery with socks on, and if you're a little OCD like I am, you will find yourself straightening them fairly often unless the edges are placed under heavy furniture, like a bed.
