    Biothane is a webbing with a plastic coating on the outside for protection and grip.

    It is stronger than leather and handles stuff like water much better. You can get it in many colors and textures and they also have sheets of Biothane but I have not looked into how that goes together.

    When machine sewing you need a round point needle and one size larger than you would use on leather.
    It can be hot cut and punched for eyelets.

    Some police and military use it for their duty belt and I am thinking it may make good shoulder harness for bags and packs.

    When I glanced at you signature Suburban Spark Slinger! for a split second I swore that said sparkle:roflmao:roflmao
