New Kangaroo Collection: What a piece of craftsmanship, I can't describe the quality of this pouch - super smooth leather which fits snuggly against the SWIG flask. All the way from Australia and our new supplier, James Young.
The letter from the artisan says:
"The leather is a vegetable tanned kangaroo produced in Australia for making stock whips. Kangaroo has the highest tensile strength of any leather - 3 x that of cow.... the skins are a premium resource with a global demand (that mostly goes into high end football boots
The scarring evident on the hides I use are evidence of the life of each animal - a typical feature is long scars down the backstrap of the Kangaroo from pushing under barbed wire fences.
I have used a hand-rolled waxed thread (barbours linen of course!), the buckles are solid brass spur strap buckles - another reference to Australian heritage."
