Leather jacket care

Make your leather water resistant. There are many leather protector products, but read the label carefully before buying. A silicone polymer spray, should preserve your leather's appearance and shine. Grease-based or wax-based products are more protective, but not recommended for jackets due to their potential effect on color, longevity, shine, and smell. Check the label on your product to find out how long the water resistance lasts. Typically, the product needs to be re-applied once every several weeks or months.

Only apply leather conditioner when the jacket starts to feel dry or stiff. Here are some tips for choosing a product
