Horsehide is an extremely dense, non-porous leather. Horsehide jackets will last longer and withstand considerably more abuse than a cowhide counterpart. Horsehide leather has a firm grain that keeps the jacket durable, and also makes it an excellent repellent for moisture due to its density. Because of this, the jacket can hold up in humid areas and withstand the rain and wet weather better than cowhide or buffalo jackets. All of our horsehide jackets are made in the USA so you’ll have the peace of mind knowing that the quality of the hide will match that of the craftsmanship.
