That looks a LOT like the Bell saddle I bought at Walmart. It is comfortable, but the material wears through quickly and it doesn't allow my butt to breathe. Sounds funny, but it does matter.
Leather is ideal, and that is part of why Brooks saddles are so popular here.
There are also saddles out there made from a flexible plastic or rubber with lots of holes in them, which some people like. Bottom line is that a good saddle is going to cost a pretty penny, and most would agree that it is money well spent.
