Kangaroo is 20% lighter than cowhide right off the bat. But when split, as all leathers must be before the tanning process to make them usable for making boots and shoes, kangaroo leather when split down to only 20% of its original thickness retains nearly 60% of its original tensile strength.
cowhides when split to 20% of their original thickness.retain only 1% to 4% of their original tensile strength.
Kangaroo has 10 times (10X), the tensile strength of cowhide and is 50% stronger than goat hide leather. Yet kangaroo is 20% lighter. Highly desirable attributes for making boots and shoes.
