I too purchased the Tobacco paddy from NAP. I do love the color and was very pleasantly surprised.....but the texture of my bag is very smooth. I was just wondering if any of you also received smoother leather?? I also have a whiskey paddy that is very pebbly and a gris paddy that is highly pebbly on one side and fades into being more smooth on the other. But this bag by far has the least amount of texture. I am just curious about other ones out there. I have contacted NAP to see if I could do an exchange if they get a return, but have not heard back from them. I am on the fence right now. I do LOVE the pebbly leather, but on the other hand it is a unique transition to have a paddy that has this character all of it's own.
