Looking for answer from an experienced person please.

I have done alum tanning and rittell ez 100 tan on numerous different animals, some fur on, some fur off. Still learning but making good progress and I've been happy with what I've done so far

My question is, can someone compare making deer or moose into leather (fur off) with alum VS. using a tanning agent like ez tan?

I have gathered that the alum tan is not really for things that will get wet, as the sulphur compounds still inside the cells will turn into acid and break down the leather over time.

Will the ez100 be better for garments?

WHAT IF I use alum pickle for ez tan... Is that going to cause the same problem with degradation over time as just a straight up alum tan?
