Horsehide

 Thumbnail image

Horsehide leather is tremendously dense and non-porous. Until the end of the 1930’s this was the leather of choice for its extreme durability. The density and non-porous nature of horsehide makes it durable , but it is also the reason that horsehide does not dye evenly. If multiple items are made from horsehide, there is a very good possibility that each piece will have slight color variations. These color variances and the markings of the skins are considered part of the natural beauty of horsehide and reassure its authenticity.

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

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.

Armor Pockets

Optional Feature: Armor-ready shoulder, elbow and back protector pockets.
