Differences in materials and holster designs.
What is the difference in Leather (steer hide) and Horsehide?
Which holsters use Soft or Hard Rolled Horsehide?
Horsehide compared to steer hide has a higher density and is non-porous with the primary benefit that the horsehide repels moisture, sweat, etc. much better.
In Front pocket holsters we use Soft Rolled Horsehide which is initially more pliable then the steer hide.
If you prefer a thinner horsehide you may request it in the comments section on the Checkout page.
In Solo, Plus and Cargo holsters we use Hard Rolled Horsehide which is stiffer then the steer hide.
