  • What do you put on your leathers ??

    Now I'm talking leather motorcycle riding gear .... non of that wacked out kinky stuff (unless that's what you use it for)

    There's tons of products around and I'm wondering is there one or two products that are more commonly used (i.e. better)or is it all basically doing the same thing.

    So, Dave wants to know what do you use on your leathers ?? (to clean or protect)

    I last used some armour all leather cleaning spray thing that was very good
    and to protect it ...... I can't remember what I used last, it's been a while.
    When I get sad, I stop being sad, and be AWESOME instead. True story.

    bugs and rain.

    Dubbin may or may not have contributed to the stitching in my last jacket rotting. It was 15 years old at that point.

    Snoseal is supposed to be pretty good.

      mmm I usually put my leathers on me

      I haven't bothered yet, but I guess Dubbin or something similar, after washing with warm water and mild soap

        Snowseal is good stuff, i use it on my hiking gear.
        It will darken the colour of your leather though.

              303 Aerospace protectant. I use it on everything. It is like Amorall but it actually DOES protect. It also has SPF factor protection. I bought it mainly for my dashboard on my car but having tried it on a number of things I have been very impressed with it. It is also a water based product, not solvent based like Amorall and most other products of that kind. It will not damage.
              I also use Dubbin on most leather. I have heard people mention it rotting stitching but have yet to see anything personally that I could take as being proof of that.

                I have thus far only put bugs and road grime on my leathers, I suppose I should look at cleaning them one day as I've had them for 5 years.
                On my Sidi boots I use stuff recomended by a boot maker, can't remember the name but its bees wax and lanolin, makes them water resistant and soft and supple.

                Pure speed in sixth gear on a 5,000 foot straightaway is one thing, but pure speed in third gear on a gravel-strewn, downhill, ess turn is quite another.

                      Should not make a difference if the leather has been stained as far as I know (can always test a small unobtrusive area first).
                      I've heard the dubbin rumors as well from years of oiling tack for horses (or is it hores?) and boots.
                      Some of our gear would have been 10 years + old and never had a problem with the stitching. Granted its somewhat heavier duty than jackets, but really, if you get 10 years out of a jacket you've gotten your money's worth in my opinion.

                          Usually saddle soap and associated bees wax style dubbin, avliable in most horse supply type shops in reasonable quanities (shoe shops and hiking shops want to sell you itybity quanities for lots). Usually with the help of a young lady in very tight pants and knee high boots , don't be too cheeky though they know where the whip section is and are happy to give a demostration .

                            The HD(i just can't say it) Leather conditioner is a pretty solid product.
