Naked Leather, made from the finest raw material, are clean natural hides which have not been sanded to remove imperfections. Only the hair has been removed. The grain remains in its natural state which will allow the best fiber strength, resulting in greater durability. The natural grain also has natural breathability, resulting in greater comfort. The natural Naked Leather surface will wear better than other leather.
Thickness or Weight – Leather is usually measured in terms of ounces. One ounce equals 1/64th of an inch thickness. Thus, a weight of 7 to 8 oz. means the leather is 7/64th to 8/64th of an inch thickness. In an effort to make leather a uniform thickness, wet hides are run through a splitting machine. However, each animal is different and there is always a slight thickness variation throughout the hide. This is why leathers are usually shown with a range of thickness, such as 4 to 5 oz., 6 to 7 oz., etc.

Poly Twill Liner
Poly Twill Fabrics are often used for sturdy work clothing or durable upholstery because of its strength and durability. Twill also recover from wrinkles better than plain-weave fabrics do. When there are fewer interlacing, yarns can be packed closer together to produce high-count fabrics. In twill and higher counts, the fabric is more durable and air- and water-resistant.
Thinsulate is a trademark of the 3M Corporation, for a type of synthetic fiber thermal insulation used in clothing. The word is a portmanteau of thin and insulate. The material was first sold in 1979. Thinsulate fibers are about 15 micrometers in diameter, which is thinner than the polyester fibers normally used in insulation for clothing such as gloves or winter jackets. Advertising material for Thinsulate suggests that Thinsulate is more effective due to the increased density of fibers with decreased size of fibers compared with more traditional insulation. Like most insulation materials, the gaps between fibers not only reduce heat flow but also allow moisture to escape.
