I have the same saddle as Wallaby (actually, I saw hers first and then decided to buy one) - I echo her comments. Honestly, I would like to get a second Aussie and as it stands now I would get the same saddle (likely in black as the other one is brown). I suppose the downside of it would be how long will it actually last given it's not leather and that I cannot answer as I've not had it that long.

Just wanted to give a quick update - I went to down under's website as advised, and boy am I glad I did! There are some awesome saddles in the clearance section at really good prices!
I ordered the saddle, got it in today, and it looks more expensive than it was. Of course the test will be when I give it try (probably in a week or so...thanks old man winter... ).
Anyway, just wanted to say thanks for the tips and help! :)

When you look at the warranties keep in mind that Syd Hill retired couple of years back and is not in the commercial saddle business anymore (he could be doing it on the side I suppose, but you never know) so I wouldn't rely too much on having a 10 year warranty on a Syd Hill that you buy today even if it's new (well old, but never been sold).
