Let me first pass on these gems of definition from Irwin Tools' catalogue:
- Oil-Tanned Leather
- Full Grain Leather
- Saddle Leather
- Suede Leather
both sides for maximum flexibility and comfort, yet it is sturdy and practical enough for the jobsite. Suede leather is thicker and more durable than split leather."
- Split Leather
The heavier and more processed the gear, the more its expense, but in my opinion, it adds to the beauty as well. However; suede, saddle and full grain leathers can easily enough be worked, coloured and seasoned to meet with your own Steampunk designs.
and here are the three items that caught my eye, charming in both aesthetic and practicality.

The full belt for a whole out-fit changing piece in one hit, the tool bag for a major upgrade in ready-made format, or the drill-holster, for all your ray-gun and positron blaster needs!
