    Boba's Belt ~ (Not the pouches) ~ Vinyl or Leather?

    I've PM'd a couple of people privately about this, but I haven't gotten a definitive answer, yet, so I figured I'd open it up to the forum here...

    So what's the call? I understand the pouches on the MOM suit are definitely vinyl, but what about the actual belt they're mounted on?

    Leather or Vinyl?

    Hmm.

    Ok. Well...either this is already common knowledge & I'm sitting here lookin' like an ass for asking, or nobody knows.

    I've done a couple of searches through the belt threads but haven't seen anything the answers this question definitively.

    I'm just curious.

    if you can make the belt of leather, is the best choice
    why 'cause the leather its more durable than leather, strongest, and yadda yadda yadda
    vinil for a manequin its allright but for use, and use, and use again take the leather

    oh and offcourse the vinil is more cheap than leather, but the "cheap cost the double"

    Yeah, I know the difference between vinyl and leather.

    I'm talking about the ACTUAL MOM Fett belt. What is it? Vinyl or leather?

    And again - I'm not talking about the pouches. Just the actual waist belt.

    Anyone?

    Uh-oh.

    Come on, Toby. Don't be shy!




    Alright, I give up. From looking at the reference photos, I'm going to guess it's vinyl. I just thought some of you who've seen it up close would know for sure, that's all.

    I guess I was kinda wondering the same thing BH. I know theres talk of this posted somewhere, but I couldn't find it either. From studying the pic on the ref CD, it really looks like it was leather too me! I made my 1st belt from double thick viynl, & it was pretty easy, but I was disappointed w/ the bulkiness/thickness. Again, not shure, but the real belt looks like leather too me.
