    LOL, funny.

    OK, think about it...

    If leather was stronger then kevlar we would be using Cows as armored vehicles in the War effort.

    Leather cow>kevlar or plastic cow???

    Default A serious note...

    One of my concerns about leather (other than weight)
    is that it is pourous and can absorb the bad stuff.

    Also, you have to paint and maintain them. I just
    dont have the time for that.

    Ummm...yes. I have thrown my nomex liner in the
    wahing machine. Can you do the same with the
    helmet?

    PS- Not looking for an arument here, just commenting
    on the subject at hand.

    Unfortunately, that's an option whether the liners are removable! Not all are designed to come out. Makes no sense to me...

    Not dense at all. I knew the subject matter at hand
    and just threw the comments out the ruffle some
    feathers.

    Looks like some took the bait...
