I have two questions:
Has anyone heard anything about the Hastilow saddles?
Since its a full custom I get to choose the color of the leather and the type. They offer Grain leather or W/R 100 or Memel leather for the panels.
For the seat I can get Schrumpf Hide, Pig Hide or Calf Skin.
I do want the two toned look in my saddle, I really like that but I am not sure about the leather material its self. My current saddle is an old Crosby that is over 15 years old, that has printed full grain leather on the panels and pig hide on the flap and seat. This saddle has held up really well, and I am thinking I should go with this again but the saddle I rode in has the Memel and Schrumpf leather and it is very soft and comfy. Will these leather types hold up as well as my other saddle?
And if anyone can show pictures of their two-toned saddles if they have them that would be great.
