    Need help with cowhide leather jacket

    I know this section is for holsters, etc but, I could use some advice on treating old leather.

    I just found an older HD leather jacket that needs to be conditioned / revitalized.
    Its stiff but, isnít cracked or anything like that - it just looks like it could use some reconditioning. So, before I attack it with Ballisol, neates foot oil, mink oil, saddle soap, Iíd like some advice from you experts.

    Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Marc Price

    I use Fiebings * Aussie Leather Conditioner* should do the trick. You can get it online at tons of places. K

    Thanks, It’s too nice of an old jacket to mess up!! I’ll check Tractor supply - they sell Feibings products. If they don’t have it, I’ll go to Amazon.

    Do you have a Tandy in your area? I'm sure the staff could recommend a product.

    I use Pecard’s for damaged leather and Lexol conditioner on stuff that just needs some TLC. Lexol has a cleaner too.

    Remember, conditioner over anything. I’d stay away from the straight oils. Saddle soap has always been my go to for true conditioning and reviving old rawhide. I would definitely ask at Ed’s.
    If it’s one of the old suede jackets it’ll be a real challenge. Good luck.

    Ditto on LEXOL products on all NON-suede leather: Lexol pH Leather Cleaner; Lexol Leather Conditioner. Great jacket! Only one (wealthy) kid in our Catholic elementary school had one - all us guys were green with envy! He never got close to a motorcycle in his entire life.
