Will leather do okay under rain? Are there ways of treating it so it will be okay?

With a bicycle seat it might be more okay under rain, but with a helmet strength / constructionn would be more important, I would think...

Just throwin' thoughts out there, I'm not an ID person nor am I knowledgeable about helmets/ bikes / whatsoever.

The Leather component wouldn't be structural --more of an aesthetic application. You're right though it could definitely pose some problems in the rain, it would have to be treated -- or alternately a "vegan" leather could be used.

the fiber optic clothing is insane, nice find. I think to stop your head from rotating inside a helmet during an impact it needs to fit reasonably snug -which could be a problem for "helmet-hair" I've done some research on the history of hats from about 2500 B.C. too present. I will post it soon -it needs some major formatting.
