Due to their recycled nature, no two covers are alike. Though general outline and measurements of bag are consistent, patterns on rubber will vary.

One of our favorites!
January 6, 2014 - These are a bit unwieldy because of the material, but sturdy and the passport fits perfectly. They are well made. I like it that each one is slightly different (I bought two), because of the markings on the tire tube material.
