Yeah. That's a damned shame, and it came as a complete surprise to some people, lol. They ordered the coat before the site had been updated to show the nylon, and when they got it, they found a pleasant surprise on the tag. I think that it was absolutely worth it last year, but if I had to buy it from the second run (or whatever run they're on now), I'd probably be hesitant. They started using black leather almost immediately after the first run.
