THank you for the compliment... expert; not quite but I do study the arms of the era pretty thouroghly and it has become my concentration over the last year or two.

Both gutta percha & India Rubber were used for ground cloths, parkas & rain capes, officers valaise, private purchase haversacks and I believe a patent canteen or two as well as a myriad of other peripheral items.  I believe both were quite a bit pricier than leather or tin.
