Go to a Specialized dealer and sit on their sit bone measuring tool. Specialized makes saddles in several widths, and which one you need depends on how wide your fanny is and what position you ride in.
I've got the 143 mm Avatar, and I love it, but if it doesn't fit, it won't be great for you.
I wouldn't use a leather saddle because of the rain, but that's based on expectation not experience.
