Tan color has a nice textured fabric. Black is more feminine looking.

I bought the black for my husband for Father's Day. My son pointed out that it looked like a women's bag, ands the tag confirmed it. So I kept the bag for myself! I love it. Then I bought the beige-colored bag for my husband (dune?). He likes his bag too. Now we are ready to travel!
