Response to Chamois
I know for sure kid was used on some D type masks. I saw an example that looked so fine and white, it almost looked like cloth. If it wasn't for the fact the wearer's sweat had dried it out in places and the kid had turned to dust, one wouldn't have known it was leather.
As for microphones covered in kid, in my opinion kid was used as well but on earlier production mics. kid, no doubt, would have proven unsuitable with use by quickly becoming worn with use. There are photos of microphones in ref books that show whiter shaded covered mics. I suppose these could have been re-covered.
