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?

On my often trashed race leather, I used plain old shoe polish to cover some road rash (OK lots of road rash) I had a set of really tough Vanson Leathers and the colors were easy to find , Black & white. Anyway for minor touch up of high wear areas it works well. Stay away from all the Oily products as they can degrad the abrasion resistance of the leather. That's what you bought it for, Right?.
