skin skinny?

hi all:
well, i'm stalled on my spring run so i've had some time to work on my sof (from robert morris's book). it's time to think about buying the skin and i would like some opinions on what is considered the "best".
i plan on sewing one seam down the center of the deck, as r.m. suggests. i would like to use urethane varnish, not paint, so i can have that transluscent look. the skin i use should be strong, resitant to puncture, abraison(sp), rot. fairly easy to work with. cost would be the last thing on the list of wishes.
any help greatly appreciated;
