Best brown MTB saddle under $50?

Hey guys.
I just got a Trek 3700.
The seat that came with it was made for a woman (or so I was told).
I'm very new to mountain bikes.

I'd like a brown or leather saddle.
Do you guys have any recommendations for something comfortable under $50?

My number one pick so far is this one:

Appreciate any input!

I wont sit on it, You will, so what is comfortable for anyone else is probably N/A.

Leather Brooks is Popular and Honey Brown is one of the colors offered

the Select is Un Dyed and with shoe dye you get from shoe shops you can make it any of those colors.



Crashing Mountain biking is quite common and that tears up saddles so I would not overspend on a saddle .

Pleather covered sub $20 saddles are Less of a Loss.

favorite MTB saddle so far... the cheapo one that came with my old tank of a Schwinn MTB. I think you can find them at Walmart in the bike section too.

It's not fancy, it's not expensive, but it does the job quite well and that's all I need.

Did you actually try riding with that seat? Who cares who it's made for, as long as it's comfortable?

Yeah, I did.
I want a brown seat, also the existing one has several spots where parts of the cushion are ripped.

Often Bike shops have 'take off' saddles , New But the bike buyer wanted something else , so It was Taken Off, and gets resold cheap.
