Is saddle leather "treated"
 
When I bought my Volvo in 2005, I had the option then of natural leather. The problem was it was untreated, and not stain resistant. The dark leather I got instead has been great and still looks new after 5.5 years. Is the saddle in the WK2 treated (and therefore easy to care for), or "natural" and easily stained?

I believe most leather nowadays is analine coated...

I picked up my Blackberry W/saddle Overland last night. The leather feels diifferent then that of the other overland nappa leathers. The best way to decribe it I can think of its the same feel as eggshell paint compared to gloss paint when running your hand over it. Does it need to be treated ? I am concerned about it staining .

I was hoping it would feel like I was riding in a saddle :cool::eek:

I think only King Ranch Model Ford Trucks and Expeditions have REAL saddle leather, and those do need to be treated.

I just went outside and checked again. The seats leather is smooth and has a slight gloss to it. The nappa leather on the door panels and center arm rest has more of the eggshell flat finnish to it.

That said I love It!!! The color looks great. I had many salesmen and Wk2 shoppers at the dealership circling my truck when i got there. All said it was the best looking WK2 they have seen so far. I think i deserve a commision for the all the sales of saddle interiors made at dealership yesterday lol..
