We recommend that you use a product like Granger's or Nikwax leather conditioner on your leather gloves or leather boots to help protect the leather and maintain performance in a variety of conditions.
We always recommend testing the leather conditioner on a small portion of the product before fully applying. Once tested, apply to the product thoroughly to the leather. We would recommend doing two or three thin coats of treatment on your product. Make sure to allow each coat to dry before applying the next.
You will want to treat your gear at least 24 hours before you plan your first use to allow the treatment to dry and set properly. This will help to ensure the best possible performance for your gear.
