The heavy duty webbing is double stitched for added strength. Waffle patterned neoprene is non-slip so your saddle stays secure in one place. The neoprene also eliminates galling and girth sores and wont harbor bacteria. Heavy, reinforced stainless steel centre D rings are long lasting and wont rust. Stainless steel roller buckle makes cinching easy. Easy to clean peel neoprene from webbing and wash separately.
