As with all leather, the MD Goat Cover may not be uniform in its appearance and there may be little marks or wrinkles which are a characteristic of real leather. The leather cover is un-dyed and so appears a very pale colour to begin with. This colour will deepen and gradually turn into a tan colour with use and passage of time.
We like the fact that the MD Notebook Goat Cover has an integrated pen loop - this avoids the need for a separate stick on pen holder, which isn't always ideal on leather. Also the slots for a credit card or other papers are useful additions.
