I tried one out and had mixed feelings about it. It's taller, flatter and firmer, all things I liked. The down side is that because it's taller, flatter and firmer the edges/corners of the pad are really pronounced under your thighs; I'm not sure if that will "break in" and how it will feel on a longer ride. I like the idea of it for the same reasons you do, and I may just bite the bullet on one to find out for myself if those misgivings are valid.

It's Italian. If I can get it to start, it'll win.
