My leather jacket looked a little dry so I applied some leather conditioner.  I used Autoglym Leather Conditioner I had for over 10 years.  This product seems to have been superceeded by Autoglym Leather Care Balm.

The end result was great.  My jacket feels softer.  It has added a little bit of shine but doesn’t look glossy.

I've applied some on my leather seats and saddlebags (just in case it could get through the protective coating).  Not sure if it made any difference or I just wiped on and wiped off. 🤔

That got me thinking... which leather conditioner or balm do you use on your leather jackets/motorcycle?

I prefer a dry jacket. 😋

However for the cars and the couches I use Duragloss' two stage process.

I will also use the same process on my jacket at some point. 🙂

I use Oakwood conditioner that seems to be the most used stuff for horse saddles and bridles etc. I buy it from a horse gear shop.

"Contains the perfect balance of natural nourishing waxes and oils including lanolin, beeswax, emu oil, tea tree and eucalyptus oil."

Contains everything except snake oil. 😃


Just did a web search and it's also sold by Officeworks, SuperCheap, Woolworths, and everyone else by the look of it.

Isn’t Dubbin, waterproofing product?  I used them in my cadet days.  I just remember them caking on vaseline-like layer. 🤣

As you can see, the Mustang seat looks good. Just wipe on and wipe off. ðŸ˜‰

Dubbin is proofing and conditioning but use it sparingly by applying it thinly. If you bung it on to think it will lead to cracking at crease points over time.

Just a reminder that any leather treatment should be used sparingly, - wipe on wipe off and buff. If you are heavy handed with it or try to work it into the leather too much - it can soak into the fibres, weaken them, and cause a shorter life. It can also shorten the life of some stitching.

Some treatments say to wipe it on and warm it up so it soaks in but wiping on too much and then heating can accelerate the deterioration of the leather. This is sometimes recommended for snow gear and waxed cotton jackets like the Belstaff, but is not good for leather. It's the buffing that warms it up, you don't really need a hairdryer.

Has anyone used mink oil on their leather? If so how do you work with it?

We use Dubbin also.  It was recommended by Perth Indian, plus used it for years for all our leather gear with horses, such as saddles etc.  Use sparingly and apply with a clean cloth, leave for a few minutes then gently buff it with a clean cloth, works a treat and keeps the leather supple, also protects the leather in wet weather.

I too use an Oakwood product, their leather conditioner for my jacket and seat.  I was Always of the belief that dubbin was the go to product but was told that it has an animal fat byproduct which causes stitches to rot prematurely where as Oakwood is made from natural waxes and oils.  I got mine from a saddlery shop in a small tub
