I am not searching for rain-proof clothes, but could I benefit from using this or the leather conditioner on a NEW motorcycle vest? I do not intend to ride in the rain. ?
Leather conditioner is believed to keep leather supple and soft. There are many environmental factors that can harm leather such as the sun, weather, debris, dust, and fungus. Obenauf's leather preserver is designed to protect the leather from these environmental elements. You can use it for your leather vest since it will be exposed to the air, the road grime, the pollution, the sun and so on while you are riding.
Can this be used on leather seats in an auto? My boots turned out great with it, but my MATTAs are in a different color and I do not want to change them. ?

This stuff is supposed to be good for dress shoes, right?
You may decide to wear black or very dark brown dress shoes when it is raining. If you do not find a good leather conditioner that will not darken the leather, another option exists. It is possible to find more than one on the market that do not do what they are supposed to do. Some of my leather is very light, and Bick 4 did not darken it. I want you to consider a product that is not supposed to darken as well. You should test your dress shoes in a conspicuous area, especially if you have a fine It took me many years to learn this lesson
Selected User Reviews For Obenauf's Heavy Duty LP Leather Conditioner Beeswax and Natural Oil Formula (4oz)
It is a big hit with leather! As someone living on the Washington/Idaho border, I was interested to learn this stuff was designed and made in Peck, Idaho
Those are work boots I purchased for my Georgia work boots that I primarily use in the office and occasionally on the job site. I do not use it for heavy duty work. It is easy for the boots to get scuffed since they are brand new. The leather darkened a bit after the LP was applied, but the scuff marks had been removed. A quick touch up makes the boots look perfect again if I get a scuff mark on them occasionally. I had my oven pre-heated to 200 degrees, then placed the boots in there for about 10 minutes before applying the LP. Once the boots were cool, I re-applied the LP. As if it were a sponge, the leather soaked up all this stuff. After the boots are out of the oven a few minutes, I put them back in the oven to "cure" them Yesterday, my daughter complained about her Bear Paw snow boots not being waterproof so I used it on those as well. On the bottom of the sole is a smooth leather strip. The majority of the shoes are black suede. The leather I used was smooth, so I only applied the LP to it. There was no good to be found in touching the suede in a few spots. If you try to use this on suede, it will ruin it! It is possible for my work boots to withstand heavy snow without water seeping into them. It was the LP who developed waterproofing techniques for them since they weren't advertised as such. I must mention one last note the smell of this stuff is amazing. There's a honey scent to it, and it's very pleasant. I was a bit concerned about that, though. Now that my dog can chew my boots, will he try to do so? It hasn't happened Are these materials really going to make me feel safe in the woods where there are bears on my hiking and hunting boots? It's probably something I'll find out soon.

You've got some good stuff there
Earlier this year, I read that beeswax can be used to treat leather. This is what I found on Amazon when I searched for beeswax leather treatment. One of the reviews in England said if you use it on leather and wooden gun stock, then it works very well. That sold me. I decided to give it a try since nobody else has written that in a fake review. I have treated my 20 year old leather couch, 120 year old German SXS shotgun stock, Thursday Boot Co boots, burl wood smoking pipe, and the wood on a 100 year old steamer trunk so far. There is nothing better than this stuff. After using snow seal for years, I found this to be much Using olive oil on my couch, my shotgun stock, pipe, and trunk, I would like them to look better. I used orange oil infused wax on my shotgun stock, pipe, and trunk, and they look better too. The next thing to do would be to wear my hunting clothes from Filson and Barbour. It's so effective that I may decide to rub a little bit of this stuff on my wife's fanny for sunscreen this summer. I think this is good stuff again. Please note Update- For my 1995 Mad River Canoe, I used this to seal the ash trim. Additionally, it can be used for that purpose.
Does not provide any improvement in scuffing, but does offer good conditioning
As for the Timberlands, Obenauf's has been applied to the right shoe in the pictures with the exception of the photos of the shoes with Obenauf's applied to the left. For the photos, all shoes have been cleaned with saddle soap and treated with Bickmore's Bick 4 conditioner before applying Obenauf's (I'm aware that is a bit excessive, but I wanted to demonstrate the process). It seems to be a really nice heavy duty leather protectant/conditioner. I chose to use Obenauf's product instead of mink oil, due to the rumor that mink oil can deteriorate leather. In my case, it worked well on some lights I decided to get colored leathers as well since I didn't really care if the color darkened a bit if it rained a bit. I also like being able to walk without worrying about puddles or sudden rain. When using more naturally textured leathers (such as my Johnston and oxfords in blur, Timberlands in pebbled leather (not nubuck), oiled leather Birkenstocks, Lucky Brand Cahill flats). If you do this on smoother leathers (like Adidas Superstars, the collar on my Timberland boots, Doc Martens), the result is more of a shiny, oily finish (after a few hours, you can buff the excess off The product did not completely smooth out any scrapes and scuffs, but I did like the feel of it. It seemed that Obenauf's "soaked in" more thoroughly in the areas where there was a crease in the shoe It was noticeable that the creased areas of the naturally textured leathers appeared "dryer", and on more smooth surfaces, LP retained moisture and appeared glossy. The skin will turn white if it is applied excessively with Obenauf's, so please try to avoid that. Probably a cloth or brush will be able to buff out this mess. There was almost a honey scent to the smell The taste is like a chemical, but not altogether It is recommended to do this for deep conditioning and future environmental protection, however it will not fix existing damage (scrapes, scuffs, worn textures).

There is a magical quality to the stuff
When I first heard about this, I was a little skeptical. Most winter professionals chose to seal the ice with no-seals. Still, I gave it a shot, and it blew me In truth, my favorite thing to do after installing this kit is to apply Sno-seal, but this stuff penetrates further Then I put some of it on my Timberlands after becoming familiar with the product on my Kinco mittens. You may be told by the preppy New York boys that it's not permitted to do that at your university, but don't believe them. As far as my $150 leather boots were concerned, I wasn't about to let them go untouched. They did turn dark (which I initially disliked), but the leather is much thicker and suppler, and you can definitely SEE this improvement. As described, it does a great job of protecting the leather from deterioration, cracking, and obviously, that means it's much more resistant to water. However, this is still not waterPROOF, hence the Sno Seal, but Sno Seal won't soak into leather the way this stuff will. At the same time as me, a colleague came down with the exact same condition, but he did not seek treatment. Before applying sno seal, I apply at least 3 coats of obenaufs. The mittens on his hands are falling apart, but mine are still intact and could last another full season. In the future, I may be able to add pictures.
