Goatskin vs. horsehide.

by OCD


Hi Mike -

Actually, horsehide is every bit as durable - more so, truth be told - as goat. Horsehide is also inherently waterresistant; You can wear the darn things in the rain for hours and stay dry, without them soaking through at all.

Goat is much more supple, though the heavier weight used in a jacket like the AN-J-3 makes it as stiff initially as the horse.
