I just noticed that the 2003 top end Teknic suit will be made with 0.8mm kangaroo hide. They claim that it's equivalent, if not better, than 1.6mm cow hide. A thinner suit would definitly be lighter and more flexible to move in, but is it enough in a crash?
Any info on this? And from all the farm animals available (cow, sheep, etc) , what's the rank of them for durability?
