I am a sucker... I wanted some leather T bags and saw some listed on ebay.
They also sell synthetic and textile. I chose the leather one and paid more, Also paid for express shipping from them. Big mistake, on both parts.
Plastic luggage and real nasty people to deal with. They list Leather in the auction aboutr 15 times and PU leather once. I have never seen a PU cow but they must exhist!
Anyway they are shady people trying to pass off plastic as leather. I did see thier feedback before I purchased and it did seem OK. But in the last 2 days they recieved 5 negatives not including mine. Thats only the people who have the guts to risk and recieve a negative feedback themselves. They did get one also from these guys showing the character of this seller..
So be warned,....... there I have vented!

Thanks Kevin, I was trying to. I checked and checked and finally decided to get those.
I contacted the seller but they didn't respond untill the second attempt.
The bags are OK but NOT leather. I would have not bought them if they were described as man made materials.
I have bought other leather from other ebay sellers and been Quite happy!

So watch out for this one...

Well, I gotta tell ya! How much cheep "sheet" from China can we stand? I live in North Carolina and around a lot of furniture workers, when they get their paychecks they go to WallMart to buy and I kept telling them they were sending their jobs overseas, they ignored that until two years ago. Anyway, cheap is not the best, buy less and buy high quality.

I don't need a lot of stuff, just really good stuff.

You're right Norm, but this country is now dependant on it. That company that got me is right there in Charlotte.

Try to go just 1 week without buying China is IMPOSSIBLE here in Socal....

I've bought from Jafrum's web site not their Ebay store three times. Chaps were leather, and high quality for $48, a couple of helmets, no problems and a pair of Milwaukee harness boots for $68 ($30 cheaper than local, and half the price of RedWings which are identical except for the logo on them).
I ordered some saddlebags (leather) about a month back. They were leather, but they were thin as the cardboard on the back of a notepad. They had been packed such that one of the bags had a crease in it. Since I returned them because I didn't like them instead of an exchange, I had to pay the return shipping. It cost me $30 to ship back some $60 bags. The bags were the only problem I've had with Jafrum so far.

I have ordered other stuff from them also. You paid the original shipping and return shipping, so you were out $50 or so for those bags. Kind of expensive way to find out you got bags you did not want to use.
I have seen and used those bags, I soaked them in leather softener to make them useable. At least they WERE leather, not plastic

I got the boots and the bags on the same order, so it was just enough for free shipping. :-D If you had to pay shipping to get it, the cost of a single item isn't such a bargain. I knew what I was getting with the boots, but the bags were a gamble.
I could have exchanged them for another or different set and got free shipping, but couldn't find any other bags the right size/style. Guess I could have kept them and sold them on eBay and made the buyer pick up the tab?

I've got Saddlemen bags which are vinyl or something with the hard plastic liners. Great bags so far, but I want to find a set of leather bags and set them up for quick change out via hard mounts, for when I want a different look.
