Chad, did you slide for 60ft on dry or wet pavement?

In this case it was wet. On Ortega.

My understanding is kangroo is stronger than cowhide so they can make it thinner, thus a lighter weight. Cowhide is thicker and makes the suit laster longer and can usually survive multiple crashes better.

Yup. I was reading into it, and I guess the cowhide has more fat cells in it and isn't as strong.
