Unless someone is really into going big or going home, I don't understand why some people get the $100+ leather halters. I spent 20$ on my nylon halter, and it has lasted (and is still lasting) me a good 2 years. And you could buy a new nylon/synthetic halter AND lead rope every year, and still not pay as much for ONE leather halter? I just don't see the point. Hah yeah it looks a little sharper, but that's about it?
