    AFAIK goatskin makes very soft leather. Good for comfort, how strong/abrasion resistant I have no idea.

    Right, thanks.

    Halvarssons do goatskin bike jackets, y'see, and I was wondering why, over normal leather?

    Sorry, I assumed it was a work related query.

    Why not just Google it and copy and paste that into your magazine? There's a reasonable chance it'll be accurate and you won't need to expend much interest.

    Goatskin is thinner and depending on which breed of cow a finer texture IIRC

    Goatskin is not as tough as cowhide. Most fashion leather jackets are made of goatskin or sheepskin.

    On a related topic, try to watch "The me who stare at goats' for a bit of an offbeat film. Good fun.

    Because its softer than Cowhide so hangs better on a "styled" jacket than if it were mad from moocoo. I don't think it is AS protective, but not too bad...
