I purchased the 8x10 Supreme Felted Dual Surface rug pad and also an 8x10 Durable Hard Surface and Carpet rug pad (which costs a little bit more than the Supreme). The main difference that I have seen was in how they were packaged. The Supreme was sent folded up in a big square, the Durable was sent rolled on a heavy cardboard tube. Both arrived in good condition, and both flattened out equally. I have had them both for about 3 weeks and really can't tell any difference between them except that the felt on the Supreme is perhaps a bit scratchier, and maybe a slight bit thicker than the Durable (which cost more). Save your pennies and get the Supreme, unless you have a desire to have an 8' heavy cardboard tube as well. ;-)
This pad is nice and thick, and it has rubber on one side to grip the floor. No complaints on its function.
Oh, but it stinks. After we unwrapped it, I put it outside for the day. When we brought it back in, the smell was still strong enough to make me nauseated. Back outside it went for another day, and still no better. We finally just put it down. Now that the rug is over it, it doesn't smell anymore, but I don't ever want to pick up that rug, because that stench cannot be anything but harmful.

Because of the heavy traffic in my family room, I needed something that would really hold my area rug in place. I have hard wood floors and the area rug was always roaming. It was a little tough to cut, but the results were impressive. The rug has not moved an inch since I put it in place over a month ago. With the extra pieces, I put them under certain areas of my sectional sofa and they have not moved a bit! I was thrilled with the results. The only negative is that is is not as cushiony as regular carpet padding, but carpet padding will not hold the rug in place at all.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? fine
Please tell us about the quality of the product. very good
How accurate was the on site description of the product? very good
This pad is 1/4-inch thick and is everything that the description says it is. I like my knowing that my rug and floor are protected. The lifetime warranty helped me pick this pad over the others. This pad has added comfort to my beautiful, expensive rug. Overstock has always delivered great products and service, and has once again exceeded my expectations.
We have a large playful dog who loves to spin circles on our 8' by 10' foot rug, sending it it spinning across the room. The pad is an exact fit size wise. It makes the rug more comfortable and it no longer flies all over the room when our dog runs and jumps on the rug and spins circles.
The pad works better than expected and is excellent quality.
Wish I could line my entire apartment with this stuff. I had to trim some edges to make it fit, I didn't have decent cutting tool so now I have some jagged edges, ooops. I just wish the trimmed edges were big enough to line my slippers with!
This provides a nice cushion to an area rug used over tile floor. Helps prevent back pain for us while we cook in our tile kitchen, and feels better to me than the gel mats that are designed for this purpose. It is much thicker and heavier than the products available at the big box home store in my area - they only carry the foam grid-pattern mats that are much less robust than this. This really enhances the feel of the rug, which is not plush (we were not looking for a really plush rug, since it's in a kitchen and needs to be easy to clean, but needed the springy support of a pad). Satisfied.
Even though I consulted a Customer Service representative via chat before making the purchase, and she recommended this rug pad, it's not the right fit. Turns out that the rug pad is ever so slightly larger than my seagrass rug. I guess I could trim the pad, but for $80, I expected perfection!
When buying a 12' x 8' rug, which size carpet pad would be used? I don't see it in the same size.1mexipina on Sep 28, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
It came with the bundle at time of check out, i just clicked on itmb90814 on Oct 7, 2013
Hello 1mexipina, I would recommend using Item #: 13457622 This is a 9'x12' pad so it would be a bit larger but it can be easily cut down. Thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 7, 2013
You should get a size down from the rug. I purchased a 8x10 rug and got the 8x10 pad and had to be trimmed. I think if the pad is about an inch from the edge you won't have to trim the pad.kds117 on Oct 11, 2013
Is the rubber underside the type that will eventually stick itself to the hard wood floor? We had sisal rugs and the rubber foam that was glued to the underside stuck, practically ruined our floors.jocelyn50 on Sep 13, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I don't think that this would stick to floors. It's not that thick kind of rubber.mscholze on Sep 15, 2013
I have real wood floors and mine did not stick to the floor... I must say - I'm in a very low humidity area.cfrf on Oct 2, 2013
I do not have any problems with it sticking to my hard wood floorskds117 on Oct 11, 2013
I got a rug padding although I don't think it would have been necessary. Beautiful rug.amystephen on Oct 28, 2013
No. The pad functions more for the protection of the rug. On a hardwood floor it stabilizes the rug, but it will not prevent it for moving a bit.jmp878 on Nov 13, 2013
Hi mattmeg, we tried verifying this information with our support team. Unfortunately we do not offer that specific rug at the moment. We apologize for the inconvenience. May we suggest a few alternatives try item number 13876015, 14063020 and 13672499. We hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 20, 2013
You said the weight of the 8x10 rug pad is 12 lb. Similar rug pads are 25+ lb. Are you sure about the weight? It makes me wonder whether this one is lightweight and inferior to seemingly similar pads from other online sources.judyellen on Apr 29, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I just got two of these in 8x10 and I think they are much closer to 25 lbs. The 5x7 might be closer to 12-15 lbs. I'm very pleased with the 3 I just received.belralph on Apr 30, 2013
I don't know how much it weighs, but it's sufficiently thick and cushy, no sliding of the rug on top. Works great under our rug.kbleopardgirl on May 4, 2013
It is closer to 25 pounds. It's an excellent pad and I will buy one for all future rugs It makes an astonishing difference.kaphut on May 6, 2013
I love my rug pads. They are on my engineered wood floors with no ill effects. They make the rugs so much nicer to walk on. I highly recommend them.debbyinhwd101 on Jun 16, 2013
This is way heavier that 12lbs! It is probably more like 30lbscricktbg1 on Aug 18, 2013
Yes if the area is covered from rain in all directions and the rug is waterproof itself. Otherwise the felt will get wet and start to mildew.cricktbg1 on Aug 18, 2013

You say it is safe for hardwood floors but if it is in one place for a long time (let's think a couple of years), will the rubberized surface eventually stick to the floor and damage it, or leave residue, when finally removed?joannajw on Dec 1, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I have a runner over my carpet, and the runner moves contantly. Is this pad safe for carpet and will it prevent the runner from moving?karastan on Jun 2, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This pad will prevent slipping of your runner. It is designed to work on top of either existing carpet or hardwood flooring.overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 6, 2012
I think I read somewhere that if you put it on carpet you should put the rubberized side "up". The felted side should not move on the carpet.lorelei007 on Apr 8, 2013
Part of the description states this is natural rubber and part says it is synthetic. Which is it? Only natural rubber is guaranteed not to mark hardwood.darlasmom on May 11, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This is a dual surface (reversible) rug pad so one side is synthetic, recycled fibers (the side that would go against carpet) that are felted onto a natural rubber (the side that would go against hard surfaces) with a minimal latex adhesion between the two.
The velcro side is the synthetic and the rubber side is natural rubber.overstockcustomercare1 on May 15, 2012
If you have a hard surface flooring (concrete, tile or hardwood), the rubber side goes against the floor. If you have carpet, the felted side goes against the floor. overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 10, 2012
I was told the opposite--that the rubber side goes down if placed on carpet. Now I am really confused as I don't want to lay it out with wrong side up.whitty2013 on Jun 6, 2013
