Made from 6-7 oz. black Latigo leather, this holster will last a lifetime. In case you are not familiar with Latigo, it is infused with oils and waxes, making it soft and pliable- but most important- it is very nearly impervious to weather, water, and drying. Widely used in horse tack for all the reasons mentioned above, it makes a soft tough holster! The black dye runs through the entire thickness of the leather, so it will never wear off, or be washed out.
