In the mean time, can anyone tell me what type and weight of leather might
have been used in period for the same purpose? I'm currently working through
the Pyrotechnica and De Re Metallica, but most of the information is on the

Probably the best for the job would be 4-5 oz oil tan or oil/veg or oil/chrom combo (easier to find). They sometimes sell it as "blacksmith" leather. It's what I made my casting apron from.
