it would be interesting to see a column that focussed on leather gear for hunters instead of mail. i've always just taken mail gear, but more through habit than considered thought. why wouldn't hunters take leather with all the agility?besides, i love sticking it to rogues whenever i can since they eat me up in pvp and steal my bows!:)

To straight up answer your question on why hunters shouldn't take leather...In most cases it's actually a dps loss to take leather because of the loss of intellect. Not only should you get AP boost from the stat (since all raid builds have that talent now), but also you get increased longevity in boss fights. If you stacked multiple pieces of leather on your character there is a very good chance that a hunter stacking mail with lesser gear would have an easy time outperforming you on even medium length boss fights.If the only thing you ever do is heroics though it wouldn't matter at all. But for raiding it's not a good idea to stack multiple pieces. And with ICC gear....there really is no reason to even have one piece now.
