I've read the responses from both Gail and Albatross on a prev thread and I have a couple questions myself. Is there a type of leather that offers any more protection from the other or is "heavyweight" leather all basically the same? I intend on eventually using it for riding a motorcycle so I wouldn't want to accidentally pick something whimpy.
My second question goes to anyone else who works for Schott. Can you confirm what Albatross stated that Steerhide does not age quite as well as cowhide or horsehide? I love leather with an beautiful patina but I was leaning toward the Perfecto One Star which is steerhide.
