Bombardier is a natural leather with a slight buff on the grain tips. This presents the leather in a two-tone look, with a plush suede like hand feel, yet rugged appearance. The buffed nature of the leather will cause it to take on additional skin oils through daily contact and as such will darken over time as well develop a slightly shiny patina. It will also smoothen over time. This is the natural characteristic of the Bombadier leathers and will enhance the natural unique features of this leather over time.
