I have bought two of these now; one in the A size and one in the B size.
I purchased them with chrome hardware.
I love the fact the nose band does come off the headstall so you can put it on your driving bridle and not have the extra strap over the Mini's head.
The leather is very supple .
I would have given it 5 stars but it is not padded; no big deal.
I am very happy with my purchase and Mini Express ships fast!
