Smartpak's bridle line?

Has anyone bought one of Smartpaks bridles from any of their four lines (Plymouth, Harwich, Wellfleet, and Nantucket)?

Every single one of their bridles have tons of excellent reviews, and their Wellfleet bridle looks like it would match my Toulouse saddle much better.

^That's the one I'm looking at.

Has anyone owned or seen one of their bridles? What was your opinion on the leather quality?

I got a Smartpak bridle second (or even third) hand and I loooove it. I've been using it for 2 years and it's still as sturdy and nice as it was the day I recieved it.
I have this one (I got it for $15 on a different forum):

The leather probably isn't "the best" but it's held up with no cracking or anything through 2 years of never oiling/cleaning it, getting rained on constantly, stepped on, etc. I actually didn't even know that it was real leather until I found it just now on their website. I had previously thought it was just a really well made synthetic leather! Hahaha

If I needed to get a English bridle brand new I would definitely consider Smartpak. :)
