Naked Leather

 Thumbnail image

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.

Top Grain

Top-Grain (Corrected Leather) is fuzzy on one side and smooth on the other. The smooth side is the side where the hair and natural grain used to be. Top grain leather has often been sanded to remove scars and then sprayed or pasted to "cover up" the work.



Horsehide

Horsehide has many unique properties, it is immensely strong and durable even in the extreme conditions and, unlike other hides, horsehide is naturally waterproof.


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.

Qualities and Care of Cordura® Fabric
If you are searching for a high performance fabric, search no more. When compared with other fabrics where durability is a deciding factor, Cordura® fabrics are ten times more durable than cotton duck fabric, two times more durable than standard nylon and three times more durable than standard polyester fabric. Most all apparel products made with Cordura® fabric can be machine washed and dried on a low setting, while luggage, backpacks and upholstery can be spot cleaned with an approved spray cleaner.

Poly Twill Liner

 Thumbnail image

Poly Twill Fabrics are often used for sturdy work clothing or durable upholstery because of its strength and durability. Twills 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 twills and higher counts, the fabric is more durable and air- and water-resistant.

Thinsulate

 Thumbnail image

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 micrometres 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.

Genuine Coins

The buffalo nickel (also known as the Indian head nickel) was produced from 1913 to 1938, inclusive. Mint marks for the coins are on the reverse, beneath the words "Five Cents" and above the rim. The Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco mints all participated in the mintage, though San Francisco generally had a much smaller annual production than either of the other two mints. The buffalo nickel, as designed by James Earle Fraser, featured a profile of a Native American on the obverse and an American Bison (buffalo) on the reverse.

The Mercury Silver Dime was first struck in 1916 and last struck in 1945. Each coin was struck in 900 Pure Silver. The coin was designed by famed sculptor Adolph A. Weinman, the winner of a national competition sponsored by the Treasury Department. Liberty is depicted wearing a winged cap to symbolize freedom of thought. However, the coin quickly became known as the "Mercury" Dime, because it was thought to portray Mercury, Roman messenger of the gods, who wore wings on his sandals.
