Cowhides can be tanned at a tanner for a small fee and turned into soft leather for one coin or turned into hard leather for three coins each. Cowhide can be turned into either soft leather, which is approximately 62,458 per hour, or hard leather, which is around 62,458 per hour, assuming a player can collect and tan approximately 374 hides in an hour. Just go to the Lumbridge cow field, loot 27 cowhides, run to the Al Kharid tanner, Ellis, pay him gold, bank, and then repeat. It is recommended that players complete the Prince Ali Rescue quest beforehand to allow them free passage through the gates, though the difference in hourly profits is marginal. New players should be aware that cowhides cannot be traded at the Grand Exchange until the player has either 7 Quest Points or 24 hours of playtime. Tanning the leather allows it to be sold immediately.
