I ordered the black and included a note that I'd like the cowhide to be a speckled or brindle look rather than the big splotches. They chose perfectly for me! I couldn't be happier with the look of it, the weight, the well thought-out storage, and the quality of the leather. Also the lining and pockets on the inside are very well made and will be durable. I previously bought a pair of boots from Overland; they were nicely made as well. I will definitely be a buying from them again. Thank you, Overland, for your attention to detail and quality!
