Stick, Plate/Pipe class starts next week. I need to buy a welding jacket. The one I have now is from NorthernTool and is cotton with leather sleeves. It's worked ok but the cotton part is wearing out quick.

I'd like to buy a Tillman/Caiman/what ever that's full leather.

Y'all got any recommendations?

Y'all's thoughts also on whether to get full jacket or open-back cape/apron?
