Standard padding or the extra padding of the Soft Seat - that is the question.

Why select the extra padding of the Soft Seat?
There are some points to consider when deciding to select this option-with the Soft Seat. First, you will lose some of the room that the saddle has to offer for your rear-end - so if you are between sizes use this to help gauge your seat size. Secondly when you select the Soft Seat, you will lose a bit of the "pocket" to sit down in, (since the extra padding is now there for your rear-end and /or your bone-y butt bones). Lastly, with the Soft Seat, the saddle will have a bit of a narrower twist. The twist is the part that is between your thighs (your crotch area). Therefore, if you like a narrower twist, have a bony butt or need a smaller seat size, adding the extra padding of the Soft Seat is key.
The Soft-Seat is soft and easy to care for. It has NO stitching lines that can fill up with dirt and grime making a saddles seat difficult or impossible to clean. Also having a seat with no stitching keeps the saddles seat soft, as the more a saddles seat is stitched the firmer it becomes.
