Hard to rate. This is a beautiful leather from BB, but if used with BB silver components or stored near anything made with their silver-tone components it will tarnish the components in record time. Interestingly, does not seem to effect the gold, copper or other color components. Disappointing, as I am used to top quality from BB and pieces that, while not expensive, perform well for years. Looks-wise & with respect to design possibilities this entire line of leather rates 5-star, the chemical within that's causing quick, heavy tarnishing actually rates 0-stars. So buy to use with gold components & don't let leather or finished pieces touch silver. Also, happens in all leather colors in this new line. Additionally it happens with the new Galaxy line (but not as quickly) which is flecked with silver or gold.
