Odd Lot Oil Tan Sides

You pick the price, we pick the color!

We have a little something for everyone in our selection of Odd Lot Oil Tanned Sides! Whether you need a whole side or part of a side, with several buying options, we’ve got you covered! Great for beginners and old hands, alike!

Mostly browns, tans, and some other earthtones, but most are in the medium to dark brown range. No black. Most are smooth, but there are a few nice pebble grains occasionally. Some are oilier than others, and some are firmer than others. Some have a strong pull up and some not so strong and some have a distressed look. And to add to the value, most are water buffalo!

At these prices, there may be occasional imperfections like natural range markings and such. Great for chaps, saddle strings, bags, linings, moccasins, aprons, satchels, journals, and the list could go on and on. These have become some of our best-selling leathers.

2 for $70!!!
Yup… you got it. 2 sides. Is there a catch? Simply put, NO! You’ll get 2 sides that will total anywhere from 26 to 35 ft. The smallest could be as small as 11 ft, but there aren’t many of those. Sides are good quality, and could be either cow or water buffalo. Almost all are in the brown tones, with a few other earth tones occasionally. No black. Might be some imperfections, maybe not. Sides will usually be 3-4oz., but you might get some closer to 4-5 on occasion. Most are smooth, but there are a few nice pebble grains. Great for chaps, aprons, totes, back packs, bags, lining and all the other things that you’d use oil tanned leather for. Most have a nice pull up, and some have a distressed look. This is one of the best deals that we’ve seen in a long time, and hopefully we can keep it up! You might get a 12 and 14 ft one or a 14 and 16, or a 20 and a 13, or a 17 and 16 or….well….. you get the picture. Note: Typically the two sides will not match, although depending on the lot, it could be a possibility.

$45 Oil Tans!

The sides will run from 15-18 sf, (maybe a little more), and will be 3-4 to 4-5 oz. for the most part.

$35 Oil Tans!

The sides will run from 12-14 sf, (maybe a little more), and will be 3-4 to 4-5 oz. for the most part.

$25 Oil Tans!

These will run from 8-12 sf, (possibly a little more) and will be in the 3-4 to 4-5 oz. range.

Worth it

NICHOLAS| 4/6/2024 3:18 pm

I ordered the 2 for $70 deal. I'm a very satisfied customer! I requested to get at least one coyote brown color and they delivered on it! Extremely happy with the sides I got, such a steal..

So worth it!

Chris| 3/14/2024 1:07 pm

I must like this stuff because I keep ordering it. Great deal for a quality leather.

Great deal

Pete| 10/27/2023 7:07 pm

A couple holes in 1 of the 3 sides I ordered, but I'm still happy with what I received. Seems like great quality for the price.

Great product!

TODD| 9/24/2023 8:11 pm

I ordered the two for and was impressed with the quality of the sides! They have made some great items and everyone loves them, especially the pullup.

Potent Industrial Odor but Reasonable Price

Hendra| 8/13/2023 4:00 pm

I bought one hide ($20). It came with a very strong industrial oil scent. I let it out in the sun and gave it fresh air to breathe out the odor for half a day. It still has a distinct motor oil scent but not as harsh as when it comes. There are many defects and wrinkles in the hide. Considering the price, I do not think it is bad leather but definitely will not make anything to sell or use from it. I will probably try some new designs with it.

Excellent quality at very affordable prices.

Beautiful leather and worth far more than what I paid for it. I have bought several of the $30.00 ones. The quality is excellent. It is a pleasure to work with them. The people working at Springfield leather are so nice too, they actually got me the color I needed to make a special piece, once I explained why I needed it. Excellent service and excellent products; what more can one ask for?

Worth every penny!

TODD| 4/19/2023 12:48 pm

Im still new to leather and ordered a pair of sides to use for making softsole boots. Ive never seen or even felt oil tan leather so this is new for me. IMHO, they look great, yes there are blemishes but to me that just adds character. I love the look of the sides I got and the wife loved them as well. (Thats always a plus)

Quality and price 10/10

Jarrett| 12/9/2022 2:44 am

This is stunning leather and oh my god the price for all the sq foot is an absolute steal. I couldnt tell which leather was which when side by side with another leather from the 22 day sale. Super good stuff.

Great Leather!

Brian| 8/26/2022 1:45 am

for the price and the quality you can't go wrong, I called in to get this ordered and I highly recommend that.

Wow! I am officially addicted

S. Sapp| 7/27/2022 7:40 am

Just awesome -- a great deal for bag-making beginners like myself without breaking the bank. I have ordered twice now and have been thrilled both times.

Good buy. Only issue is sizing

Aaron| 5/9/2022 11:00 pm

The price is definitely a plus, and the leather quality of fine, the only thing is that the sizes are pretty inconsistent. I ordered two of the same price leather, but on arrival, one was only about 3/4ths the size of the other one.


justin| 4/14/2022 8:25 am

I bought two of the $15 sides. WOW!!! Great stuff!!! I will definitely be buying more!

A good deal if you want all the same color

Joey| 4/1/2022 4:24 pm

I bought the $15 and the 2 for $50. Very nice leather. My only complaint is I got 3 pieces of leather that is all the same color. I was really hoping to get all different colors

Get these

Redtooth leatherworks| 2/24/2022 6:10 am

Springfield has surprised me again and again with their quality and attention to detail, particularly because they didn't have to. At $15 a side these don't have any right to be as nice as they are. Don't hesitate if you're on the fence about the hides. Thank you everyone at Springfield. It's only 4 star because i can't click on the 5th.

Big Bang for your buck!

Maddie| 2/14/2022 5:30 pm

I purchased the $20 deal. It was a beautiful piece of leather!! There were some holes and marks, but still an awesome deal for the price! I am a super beginner but I made a pretty cool tote purse with it. Definitely recommend this deal!


Earlp| 2/12/2022 9:07 pm

Can't not express how great this deal is I got 2 $15 pieces and just love it way bigger then I thought and only one small hole in one of the pieces this is great I can't wait to get more already

Great bargains , great service

William Parsons| 2/11/2022 7:20 pm

I have bought 1 20 side and enjoyed working with it so much I ordered another one. Great deal great product. I will continue using SPRINGFIELD LEATHER as a valued source of leather.

Need some - buy some !

T. Warman| 12/29/2021 9:17 pm

Ok folks - I have irdered twice now - did 3 @ $15/each, and 2 for $50. I have to tell you the product is wonderful. We have all bought leather at many prices. All I have to say is if you need leather buy this stuff. While you cannot specify exact quality/ colour etc. There is a place for comments. All I asked was to make the two colours different. Done. Easy.. all ya need to do is decide on qty and price then click buy & ship...done. you are most welcome. You will be back to buy again...and again...

High quality! One catch...

Samantha| 12/23/2021 8:59 pm

Wanted to start making some journal covers, so I ordered 6 x $15 sides. Sides are high quality, about 4oz, and a dusty tan... I just wish I'd known that all 6 would be the same type of leather! I get that SLC was probably trying to do me a favor and give me a ton of matching material to work with, but I wish there had been an option for "matching if possible" vs "send me a variety", because I was hoping for the latter. Still, the quality is good, the smell is good, and I have plenty of material to practice on!

Must have lots of gray

Paul Parker| 12/20/2021 7:07 pm

Leather seems like good quality, but out of the colors I received the puke gray.

Amazing value.

James| 12/17/2021 8:01 am

Excellent value. I bought 2 $50 hides and got both of the same brown colors. Next time I'll ask for a different color. Beautiful oily sides with amazing pullup. Will buy again.

Buy this stuff now!

Mike| 11/23/2021 10:39 pm

2 for $50 was an absolute bargain for what I got. Just some amazing dark brown pull up leather. My whole house smells like leather and I just can’t wait to see what I can get out of this stuff once I really get started. Ordered it twice, I was just as pleased the second time around. What. A. Bargain!

$15 Oil Tan

WV| 11/23/2021 10:06 pm

Darker brown oil tan sides...$15.00. I purchased 3, 2 had pretty decent bug bites/hole and lots of character (good for composition bookcovers)... But the 3rd was longer and really nice (less character). I'll get two rustic totes out of it.

I will buy more.

Mark St. Charles| 11/15/2021 12:53 pm

I've purchased 3 of these sides , 2@$50 and 1@$50. They are well worth the money. They aren't perfect , brands ,scars, and holes to work around, but nothing I didn't expect. It just adds character to the rustic haversacks I'm making for the grandkids. I'll get 4 full sized backpacks out of these sides. That's a good deal.

Great leather awesome deal

Stitched up| 11/4/2021 7:34 pm

Just got two in today and ordered two more. They have some character but it is nice looking leather and you cannot beat the price! Hats off to the folks at Springfield Leather Company.
