$2.50 – $26.00
This popular product is a neutral-colored blended paste that cleans, conditions, preserves, and weatherproofs all smooth oil-tanned leather to keep it supple, strong, and beautiful. This specially formulated blend of waxes and USP Grade Petroleum products help repel dirt and water from entering the leather where they cause the greatest damage. The oils in the leather dressing lubricate and plump up the fibers, allowing them to move smoothly against each other without binding and abrading.
Our products contain NO animal fat or tallow, mink oil, lanolin, or neatsfoot oil. May darken leather a shade but not significantly. Not recommended for Suede or NuBuck leather (use our NuBuck and Suede Spray instead).
LEATHER DRESSING APPLICATION:
Using a clean, soft cloth or your fingers, apply the dressing in light coats. Allow 12 to 24 hours for the dressing to be absorbed into the leather. Apply additional treatments in the same manner until a thin layer of dressing remains on the surface. Each treatment allows fibers in the leather to become stronger, softer, and more flexible. Due to the density of the dressing, leather cannot over-absorb the conditioner.
Remove any excess dressing with a dry, soft cloth and gently buff the surface to a soft sheen. Buffing leather melts the blend of waxes so they will repel water and dust. Perform follow-up treatments two to four times per year or as needed to maintain proper protection of the leather.

I have a 14-year old A2 flight jacket that I purchased from Gibson and Barnes in El Cajon, California. Although certainly not an antique, I did notice some stiffening and slight loss of luster of the jacket. I wanted to restore the suppleness and condition the leather and decided to try your Leather Dressing since Gibson and Barnes offered it on its website. Just wanted to tell you how well your product performed. I am totally satisfied. I first tried it on some boots (performed very well) and then following your instructions, I applied a light coat on the jacket and wiped off the excess. After letting it sit for a day, the leather was supple and pliable with no change in color. It’s obvious that the leather was well-conditioned and protected. I am so glad I bought your product and would highly recommend it. Plus, I was glad to support a small, American company. Thanks for making a fantastic product.
