Just ordered a pair myself. Overnight shipped them for free.

Sorry, first time post. I have the same issue with one of my 403's. There about two months old so I can imagine them being dry. Just to be sure I applied some Reno, no change. It looks like marble for lack of a better word. Is this a normal characteristic of CXL? Its kind of driving me nuts, any insight would be appreciated.
Just looks like good character to me!
Sorry to see that, doesn't look bad though. Seems like the quarters were cut from looser part of the hide. Just the natural characteristic of the leather if it's breaking this way, just do your best to keep oiled.
