Buffalo, American Bison is the thickest at 8 - 10 ounces in thickness, is very supple,
and durable, and is the first choice for the main body.
I use lighter weight leathers for trim or for lighter weight moccasins.
Moose, Elk or light weight Buffalo are best for those individuals who are looking for a lighter
weight and more buttery feeling leather of about 5 ounces in weight with more of a slipper quality.
Deer is great for light weight trim areas only, about 3 ounces.
It is not suitable for the main body, toecap or heel cap
because it scuffs easily, is too light weight,
and will not hold up.
Bullhide is a close second to Buffalo in weight, about 7 ounces,
but it lacks the suppleness of Buffalo.
The Bullhide is not the best choice for a toecap because of it's stiffness
and inability to stretch well like Buffalo.
All top-grain-leathers may have natural range marks.
