Be real careful with some waterproofing sprays. As a result of just a modicum of spray on my leather gloves AND heavy rain a couple of days later, my hands have turned reddish and itch like hell:(

No such word of caution on the can. Jamie

Thanks for the advice Jamie.
I'm sure a search will reveal some law firm looking for people with red itchy hands. Excuse me, I forgot, you're not an American. :D
I sure feel like a *****y itchy Apache:cool:

I try to stick to good old "Mink Oil" which is basically a tallow based wax, I had some spray waterproof once but I think it was silicone with scent added.

"Apache", huh. Interesting answer especially to someone with Sioux Nation blood in them.
