    I like nylon because as much as I love leather, it doesn't wear as well for me. I love leather when it's thin and soft, not clunky.

    My leather Wave sheath has become nicely rounded over the edges over the years. There's a couple millimeters worn right off in some places - nylon, I presume, would have started fraying much earlier.

    Always liked the nylon, but like others said....I hate the fact that the velcro wears out. The leather just seems to "warp" and change shape on my body.

    the Nylon pouch has a little pocket on each side of the multitool.
    I carry an ArcAAA (2 stage Millermod) in the front one and a Bic Lighter in the back one.
    there, my secrets out!!!

    i prefer leather, good leather that is, because it ages better than nylon. after a few years a good quality leather sheath looks lived in, and is easily revived with a good leaning and a bit of oil, but nylon starts looking frayed and ratty, and there's really not much you can do for it once it starts.

    I am kind of in a toss up I like either or. I have a leather one that came with my core and I have a nylon one for my wave. But it would be nice to have a nylon one with a button snap like on the leather ones. Velcro doesn't last long if its being used constantly
