PostSubject: leather problem   Sun 6 Mar - 12:01

Okay here's a question for the experianced members.

Had a 2nd hand leather jacket for a while now and want to wear it this summer,however,the leather if so stiff and thick in places that it is uncomfortable and makes me look deformed Mad

Does any one know of anything to spray on or rub in that can soften thick leather? Been told that vasaline rubbed in works but have had no success with that.

Any ideas? Idea

Native American Indians used to soften leather by getting the old women of the tribe to chew it till the hide was soft and plyable, perhaps you could have a word with your granny.

Failing that, you could always try good old fashioned Dubbin as used on real football boots ............ not the pink plastic ones used by today's poncey primadonnas.

Find yourself a local horse riding stable, the people who work in the tack room will be able to advise you and perhaps even supply some Dubbin.

Liquid nicwax is good stuff, not used it myself for ages but I doubt it has changed much.

Hi Matt,

I use "Renapur" a Leather Balsam made from completely natural ingredients including beeswax. (Well that's what it says on the tin).

They are at most of the bike shows.
