Some people mistakenly think it's soft touch plastic.
Thanks guys. I was hoping for an OEM one that would match cleanly, but I guess I'm out of luck. Also, I just noticed last week that it was leather, as I had thought it was plastic myself for a bit. I'll check out what IND has.

Has anyone seen any aftermarket ones? If they're decent quality I'd still be interested in looking.
