I have been a DCB guy up to this point, but I just order a simple backpack in the new tobacco. I really like the look of the new tobacco, but I am keeping my fingers crossed that the scares and bug bites won't be that bad.
I have the former tobacco for my waterbag, dry bag and ID wallet. My iPad case, wallet and briefcase are chestnut and my large satchel is DCB. I must say I pamper my chestnut pieces considerably more than the tobacco and DCB ones. I guess the personality profiles are correct.
Thank Jack. Inside it does look darker. I'm not putting any oil on it. Just working on it when I got the time (twisting, rolling) to soften it a bit. That also help to squeeze out the oil from the leather to lighten the colour.
I just got my saddleback small bifold wallet in dark coffee brown the other day and I LOVE it , a little stiff but I'm sure it will break in nicely. I went to get the old Bull belt in the same color today but it was sold out..:(
