I've been using Paratan for a while and I really liked the results. I decided to see what all the hype was about so I tried Krowtann. I used it on a coyote, mule deer, white tail, and an antelope. I didn't loose any capes, the hair is tight and they all shaved well, I got acceptable stretch and the process was as simple as it gets. I really didn't save any time I don't think. All in all I liked it, but was not blown away by the results. I still like the feel of a Paratan tanned cape and think that overall the price is a little better (more bang for my buck). I'll be sticking with the Paratan.
