Vicenza's pretty great. Honestly out of the samples I got the only one I didn't like was CXLHH, too stiff for my liking.
A matter of taste, but that's how I see it. I think Vicenza is the best in terms of feel, followed by CXSH, Badalassi and unfinished HH. Unfortunately, I don't know any other leathers from Aero.

Of course, I can see why someone would appreciate the armor-like qualities of the stiffer leathers. I haven't had a chance to make a purchase, but personally I quite enjoyed goatskin's softness and scuff resistance from playing with the samples. I know it's not the most popular choice though.

I'm not so sure about that. I think there are quite a few people who prefer the softer leather rather than the Roman leather armour.
I like something in the middle. Nothing too soft and flabby, but not too hard either. If soft, then the leather has to be thick. Vicenza is a good compromise for me. Not too thick, not too flabby, comfortable to wear.
My first FQHH was cool, but it was actually too stiff for a long time. But I'm learning ;-)
Incidentally, CXSH (at least the ones I have) are much softer than CXFQHH

^^ Preceisely why my Ridley was made in Steerhide, I don't think I could wear it otherwise...
It is quite slim-fitting, for sure.
