    Hey I'm sure its cowhide I was just referring to the thickness of the hide an it being beastly I don't want anyone to be mislead about that.

    All rhinos are extremely endangered. It would be not cool at all, or rather, a serious problem.

    It sure does look like cowhide. That would have been strange


    Agree to that sentiment, always thought people poached rhinos for their horns not for their hide

    I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out these jackets were deerskin. Which only makes it better. My favorite jacket ever.

    I love Natal. So underrated. I have seen one for sale listed as “elk”. What do you think @Monitor ? Possibly?

    No clue. It's a weird cowhide, that's for sure. It's got that... Bursting effect that I've only seen on deer jackets, don't know how to describe it any better. The jacket you bought from Ton had it on coupla places. That's very uncharacteristic of cow.

    Not high jacking this post! Just saying how incredible Natal jackets are and questioning the animal source. 5AC488AD-D280-48EF-96F5-5D8D486E8E91.jpeg

    Looks a bit like JL’s naked cow after some wear. I just returned such a jacket on ebay because it STANK.

    My Legendary vest in naked cow looks like this too. It was my club vest for a number of years, some time ago, I wore the heck out of it. They still trying to pull me back in. Nope, I’m good doing my thing.

    My TRD jacket was naked cow and very similar to the leather in the Natal jackets I've handled. I assume Natal are bovine as well, but if you really want to know, you're going to need to do a DNA test.
