This bag was a little veiny but I went for color rather than leather. I wanted one more on the beige side and I got it. I used 2 applications of te Apple Guard Condioner. I let it dry for several days after I wiped it off and now it is ready to be sprayed with the protector and I am going to try the lovinmybags handle protector. The last picture was in sunlight, the color of the bag did not change. The first pictures 2 are before, the next 3 after.
