Significant OUT-GASSING and CHEMICAL ODOR
The product description states "no odors or off-gassing", however the pad has EXTREME chemical odor and off-gassing out of the package. After leaving it in a room for approximately 30 mins, the entire room has a STRONG out-gassing chemical odor.

And the padding does a nice job of protecting the rugs
Worth every penny. We've tried all sorts of rug pads in the past, nothing kept our rugs (on hardwood) in place. Especially with two big dogs in the house. This pad is the answer. Even with the dogs running through the house, nothing moves (o.k., there is the occasional need to scootch it just a hair). And the padding does a nice job of protecting the rugs.

Costly. Not as thick as advertised. Poor quality finish. Strong grip.
I went through so many different options and finally decided on this rug pad because I thought it would be thicker than any of the other competitors. Despite costing a lot more than the other brands, I thought it was okay because of the thickness. Upon receiving the pad, I can say I am very disappointed because the rug pad is not 1/3" thick, but actually less than 1/4" thick. Another complaint I have is that it bowed up in the middle because it was shipped folded up. Luckily upon putting the rug over it, it flattened out rather quickly. For the cost, you would expect better quality, but this thing looks like it came in a big row, and someone cut it with a razor or a scissors. It's not machined cut, and the edges are not machine finished.
Despite my complaints, I must say that it holds the carpet in place very well. I wondered about the rubber base and felt top thinking it would be inadequate to hold the rug in place. Let me assure you that the felt side is very sticky (not actually gooey sticky, but it sticks) when the rug is on it. I couldn't even adjust the rug by myself by dragging it. At least that's a big plus because you know it won't be sliding off anytime soon.

Feels like the rug is glued down
Totally works, rug doesn't move at all even with nothing on it. Feels like the rug is glued down. I purchased the 1/4 inch as I was worried anything higher would be a trip hazard. Its plenty soft even with a very thin rug. I suppose if you want extremely soft you could pay the extra for 1/3 inch.
Rug is expensive but again it doesn't move and is very well made vs the cheese cloth style pads.

Buy a cheap rug & fool everyone with this rug pad.
It really makes our 1/4 inch pile area rug seem luxurious. We had a party a few days after we got it and our friends were commenting all night about how nice our rug felt and how expensive it must have been ($100 on overstock). It also did a great job keeping our 5x8 rug in place. I'm ~200 pounds and if I run and jump on it, it moves maybe 1/2 inch, but beyond that it hasn't moved at all. No smell to it that we noticed. It came rolled up, but flattened out quickly with a few books on each end. We're very satisfied.

The loft and firmness of this product met my expectations ...
The loft and firmness of this product met my expectations. The pad stays put on my hardwood floors, and holds my wool rug in place. It does not work well with an olefin rug, because the top of the pad is felted in a way that is too smooth and allows the rug to move. I do not wear shoes in my home and even walking barefoot on the rug makes it slip off the top of the rug pad.

Best non-slip rug pad ever and comfortable for the knees!
Super high quality rug pad and even more amazing customer service!! My rug hasn't budged in weeks and the comfortable padding is very knee friendly! I purposely ordered the 7x9 pad for my 7.5x9.5 rug so it doesn't stick out and I didn't need to cut it at all. I can't express how much better my rug feels! The edges are unbearable to kneel on so I intentionally go onto the padded part itself. I originally ordered the non-slip ultra black in 1/3" thickness and received the standard 1/4" thickness. I messaged and instantly received a partial refund. Even though I didn't receive the thicker rug pad, I'm still incredibly happy with my purchase.

At first I thought this pad was too soft, because it is a lot squishier than any other Oriental rug pad I have ever had. But with the weight of the rug on it it seems like enough support. Perhaps it is compressed a little bit which is a good thing. I gave it four stars instead of five because I was looking for a stiffer more dense pad . I actually ordered this same pad for three different rugs, a round one and two larger ones. Sendung them all back wasn't practical so i decided to give them a try. The rugs have not moved on the pad and the pads have not moved on the floor. If the backing holds up better than my previous pads I will be happy .

Nice felt pad
Nice pad for the money. We had a knotted-style wool lrug in our playroom on hardwood floors and it wasn't comfortable to sit. This pad totally changed the feel of the rug and I can finally sit comfortably to play with my child.
