T3 Matrix CoolBack Sport Endurance Pad
The T3 Matrix Endurance Pad is designed to protect and support your horse's back muscles over long distances without interfering with performance. The spine has a Velcro opening to add Impact Protection Inserts. The top is a linear quilt of ETC(TM) and high quality, breathable batting.
ETC(TM) is a breathable, non-slip fabric that keeps your saddle securely positioned, but is also anti-friction to avoid heat buildup. Typical non-slip materials like rubber scrims use friction for grip which creates heat and can lead to galling. The linear quilt maintains the batting loft for maximum breathability and heat dispersal.
The fleece bottom is bi-level: primarily 1" Coolback(R) fleece with a section of 1/2" Woolback(R) behind the leg to remove bulk and improve heat dispersal. Coolback(R) is 100% polyester originally designed to replace Sheepskin in hospitals, then specifically formulated for the rigors of equestrian use. This orthopedic 1" fleece offers superior pressure relief and weight distribution, as well as rapid heat dispersal and breathability. The pile is resilient and rebounds after every washing. Machine washable, dryer safe.
Woolback® virgin knit-wool fleece is resilient, durable 1/2" pile natural material offering superior moisture wicking and heat dispersal with high breathe-ability, concussion protection and comfort. Woolback fleece is natural white in color.
Coolback® synthetic fleece contains a special combination of resilient polyester fibers and durable denier to provide the best in recovery over long-term use and washing as well as concussion protection, air circulation and moisture/heat management.
Linear Quilt ETC™ Fabricprovides a non-slip, anti-friction surface for a secure and stable saddle position while the linear quilt pattern passes moisture and heat readily through the lightweight batting creating exceptional heat dispersal and breathability.
Ergonomic Designfeatures inserts with a longer front to complement the natural contour of the horse's shoulder to provide a custom fit that supports muscle development without interfering with important muscle groups.
