Hey guys,

I'm buying $1500 worth of leather gear so might as well spend some money on decent stuff which will keep them soft, while protecting them and allowing them to keep their colour. Any suggestions?? All my leathers are blue/white so I need something that won't discolour them.

I read beeswax is good. I read that you just warm the leather up to open the pores and then rub in the beeswax, then rub off any excess cream after 30mins or so.. I heard the heat makes them shrink, unless you are stretching the leather while it is warm, in which case it will stretch. I only plan to do this process once (for now anyways), as I don't want to keep warming up the boots.

Gloves fit well. Jacket is slightly big so I don't mind if it shrinks a little bit.. So I probably wont bother wearing the jacket after I warm it up and apply the cream/whatever I buy.

Also, I have 43 boots which are a good length but are quite tight around the middle of my foot. The 44 were way too big so I opted for the 43, as I knew they would stretch.

I'll probably warm them up with my feet inside, apply the cream and then continue to wear the boots for a few hours so they mold to the size of my feet.

Is it best to use warm water to warm the leathers up, or a hair dryer? :sleepy:

Also, what should I use to clean my gear? :huh:

Thanks alot :D

Get yourself some dubbin. Just smear it on, and rub rub rub it in, like vasoline :p friction will make it warm enough for it to melt into the pours of the leather and it will remain soft, and healthy, and shiny/clean. costs about 15$ a tub and can be used on any colour leather (as it is a vasoline like colour and won't discolour)

Just FYI, Meguars do some great motorcycle products for seats etc. My seat on the KV looks like new now after 30 years of abuse

+1 on the dubbin, it keeps your leather nice and subtle and helps with water repelling.

The dubbin cream seems to be the go. I'll buy some tomorrow. Cheers guys :)

What about cleaning? Just warm soapy water on a rag/cloth, and then when dry apply the dubbin cream again?

Thanks

Got it in one ;) important part is to keep rubbing with dubbin, the friction heat is what does it all the good, the more you rub, the better it will work.

Highly unlikely, you've obviously set an extraordinarily high bar.

Do you use warm water? Do you totally soak them in the water while wearing them?.. Or just dab water over the outside of the boots? Never damages your boots? Does it stretch them a fair bit?

They're alright for length, just a bit tight width-ways. They've stretched a bit after wearing them for about 4 hours but just need that little bit more, and then they will be super comfortable!

get them wet through- like fill a bucket and step in it. cold or warm water. but as they only need a little bit more, i wouldnt worry about it.
