Latigo Leather Bible Cover, XX Large
Does not fit NIV study bible
I have ordered two different sizes of this cover, neither fit. One was too small for the thickness. The other was just too big overall. I love the look & the quality but due to the size, it just will not work with the NIV study bible.

This product does not meet the printed size specs.
This is the gorgeous well-crafted product I expected as per the price. What I did not expect, however, is that the cover does not fit a 10-1/2 inch length Bible, as advertised. The cover itself measures 10-1/2 inches; but because the Bible must be inserted into the front and back cover flaps designed to hold the Bible in place, a 10-1/2 inch Bible will not fit inside those flaps. I tried two 10-1/2 Bibles, and both were, perhaps, 1/4-inch too long to fit inside the flaps. It is my suggestion that the printed description of this product be changed so that other customers will not be as disappointed as I am. I did note, that this product was reviewed by 2 other individuals, one of whom had a Bible it did not fit and one whose Bible did, so this might be something CBD and/or the manufacurer might want to clarify for future customers.

I was pleased with the binder but not its size. I needed just a 1/8" more for the Bible I wanted to cover and it is just a little big for the one I had to use it on. It is however a beautiful cover.

I just purchased a new study bible, in the large print edition, which increases its overall size to the point where its difficult to find a cover large enough to accommodate its dimensions. This cover is exactly what I needed and I received excellent quality in the bargain. Advertised and pictured as top grain handcrafted leather it proved to be exactly that. The texture and aroma of the leather testify as to its quality which is matched by the workmanship of the stitching. Add to this the totally unique closure system; a leather strap that is actually part of the front cover, but coupled with a flexible 2 section of elastic material, allows one to secure the bible in a closed position until ready for use. I applied KIWI mink oil to this cover, on two separate occasions, a few days apart, just as I do to new high quality work boots. It softened the leather and gave an already beautiful antique appearance an even deeper grained character that one might expect to find in a fine library. All who have seen this cover marvel over its appearance and workmanship. I could not be more pleased with my purchase; one that I should be able to pass along to my grand children, and their children. Chuck Hagan
