I bought this to go under two 0.25" thick 8'9" x 11'9" rugs I placed up against each other in my living room. I read the warnings that the pad is NOT a non-slip, but I didn't think that would be an issue since the rugs placed on top of it would be large, and held down by furniture. So far, there has been no problem, and the extra thickness has added cushion and comfort to otherwise thin rugs. The rug pad didn't come with any odor and was easy enough to trim with utility scissors. I would buy it again.
This pad is a good complement to all the rugs I've bought. It's a true 8 x 10, so if your rugs are just a bit smaller, cutting it down is not too taxing. The recycled top part seems very sturdy, and the non-skid backing works like a charm. I pieced the remnant I cut away on a smaller rug, and it works great on that, too! (bonus). It's not an overly thick pad, but perfect for the thick 0.5 inch wool rugs I purchased...makes them very comfortable to walk on, but not so much you'd trip from the wood floor to the rug. I'd buy this again, and on sale, it was a good bargain even compared to the quality at the local major hardware store.
