We think Hadfield's Figure 8 caveson is the nicest on the market today. There is no plastic used to create the raise, instead Hadfield's uses a leather insert. This process results in a stronger product with minimal stretching. You'll never have to worry about the leather cracking and resulting in a piece of plastic popping out!
