Ive had my A*'s TZ-1 jacket for about 2 months now, for those that dont know,it is a full leather jacket (jus makin sure).It still feels rich, and smells good, but some parts are getting a bit more wear then others, like my sleeves since i put on and take a backpack off a few times a day.

Now i know you are supposed to wash it with warm soapy water, and thats easy enough, but i wanted to know what you guys use for treatment.Its an oil right?

I was planning on getting the stuff that alpinestars makes, a friend suggested to get the stuff that you treat horse sadles with.

whatcha guys think?should i go with the A*'s stuff since they make the jacket?

I've used saddle soap on my AGV's with no problems, and have always used it on my regular leather jackets. It comes in a little can, like paste-style shoe polish, so a little goes a long way.

If you do use it, though, I'd suggest testing on a small area just to be on the safe side, but it should be just fine.
