Linothorax vs Quilted linen vs spolas
Pretty much all the examples of hide armour we have from all over the world from the Bronze Age onwards are made from rawhide or semi-cured hide and not tanned leather. In order to make tanned leather into a functional armour, you need to harden it into cuir bouilli; in other words, to give it the same properties that the hide had before it was tanned.
