    Default Go nylon or stick to leather?

    My belt is hanging from a thread so it’s time to put it to rest. I’ve been looking into the “new” nylon belts and was wondering what the general opinion of them are? I like the look of them but the plastic clip fasteners are a bit of a worry.. and they look a lot fatter the the traditional “old skool” leather ones we’ve been using for donkeys years.. dose this mean that older leather frogs aren’t compatible ? (My frogs are also completely knackered). Some are double the cost of others. I know you normally get what you pay for but is it really worth it? Basically shall I go nylon or stick to leather.? Thanks✌️

    Best bet is going to a saddler and getting one hand made from real good quality leather but itl be more expensive than what guys will be used to be paying.
