Not sure I'd look for a deal on leather goods outside the U.S... In the old days leather was tanned with ammonia, and the cheapest, most readily available source for it was/is URINE. Word is they stilldo it that way in some areas (Mexico). If you dont want to be cruising along on your Harley smelling like a pee-pot, I'd not just go for the bargain in a lesser developed country.

(I coulda got some great deals on cowboy boots last year in Cozumel, but couldn't bring myself to do it).
