That blue looks real nice. What does the material feel like (hard/soft, slick/grippy, thick/thin)? I have been thinking of re-skinning my Yashica Lynx 1000 rangefinder with the Deep Jade composite leather.

I would describe the composite leather as tight, smooth, maybe a bit slippery (slick, maybe) and possibly a bit thinner than 'real' leather.

I have used their Genuine Embossed Leather and like it better than the composite.
But to each their own.

I would like the Genuine Embossed Leather as well, but no sense paying more for the skin than I did for the camera!

That was exactly the situation with my little Canonet.
But the camera was a 'steal' of a deal and the new leather made it even better.
