Is there any pros or cons of going leather versus vinyl besides the obvious looks? Does one wear better than the other? Is one more weather proof than the other?

I had both. I started out with the vinyl sent the seat back for bad stitching and paid to have it upgraded to leather looked much better .It moved my A$$ back about an inch which turned out to be uncomfortible for me so I sold the seat here.I personally like leather better than vinyl I think it feels better.

I think the vinyl will weather better than the leather, IMHO. Leather will shrink if it gets wet.

I have the leather Profiler and love it. I think it looks and feels much better than the vinyl. As with anything it takes a little care to keep it looking nice. I use mink oil on mine about once a month. Most any good leather conditioner will work.
