Hydrophane Leather Dressing is rated 4.947368421052632 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ONLY Leather Oil I use Simply the best. Very light, yet completely quenches dry leather - even worn out saddle billets. It doesn't darken the leather at all - keeps it the same beautiful color you love, just makes it happy again! Lasts forever too. I use this on my saddle and bridle about once a month (more in the summer) and still have my original can from 3 years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Product, I use every 6 months I find, at least at my barn, that new horse owners/riders are not taught to care for their leather. I have used this to oil to show the newbies and some of the oldies how to do it right (really good for softening unloved tack).Here is my method:-After every ride use a cream (CPR or Lederbalasm are my favorites)-Weekly (or every other week or after a dirty hunt/hack) clean with soap (any soap - glycerine is the common one, but Kirk's or Ivory is also used in some circles) use a toothbrush and get into the grooves, wipe of all sud grossness with a clean damp sponge and then apply cream.-Every six months or more depending on climate: soap and clean, OIL, then cream... I use Hydrophane. Brush it on (99 cent brushes work great and put oil in a cup), especially on the underside. May take multiple coats, but until it is not quickly absorbed. (This is where most people start, if they have never cared for their tack).Also, use a different sponge each for soap and cream (don't let dirt get in the cream one). Throw them away often, they harbor dirt. Invest in a saddle cover, get one embroidered for a snazzy look, they will keep the barn dust off of your saddle (bridle bags are cool, but I only use for travel). Lastly clean your bits and stirrups (take out the pads and place both in dishwasher) then shine with polish. Replace pads often, they are not that expensive and old rotted yellow ones are really noticeable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hydrophane Oil I have used Hydrophane Oil to condition all my leather tack since I was first introduced to it by the owner of a large local tack shop 25 years ago. It soaks into the leather immediately and is so light and pervasive that you don't even have to completely disassemble the tack. It also leaves no gooey residue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff Does what no other leather conditioner can do -- render the leather impervious to water! I started using this many years ago, and this product is amazing. I started using it on my new dressage bridle from the get-go. After conditioning with this, you can dip the leather in water and when it dries, the leather doesn't dry out. And it lasts quite a long time before you have to recondition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes Leather Luscious Again This product is excellent for breaking in new leather, restoring dry leather, and an occasional deep treatment for my normal tack. -Nothing- works quite like Hydrophane oil and the waterproofing is an added bonus! I even use it on my BF's motorcycle saddle, and with daily use on roads and in weather, it certainly takes a beating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used hydrophane for years. I have tack that is 40 years old I treat with Hygrophane at least 2 times a year. Works great. I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Hydrophane Leather Dressing is well absorbed and doesn't darken leather like some other saddle oils will. It also isn't clumpy and overly greasy like Neetsfoot Oil. This is the only oil I will use from now on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product I have used hydrophane product for years on all of my tack. After I soap my tack I brush this on.... it has protected my saddles from years of weather, rain, mud, sweat, etc. LOVE IT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great leather oil! I used Hydrophane on an a stiff, leather bridle. Within a few applications, the leather was soft and pliable. This oil absorbed into the leather quickly. I used a soft, small brush to paint it onto the leather. This seemed to eliminate any waste and made it less messy to use. It is a good product, but it is expensive to buy for the amount in the container.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent dressing Really brings the life back to old leather. Readily soaks right in without leaving any greasy after affects. Simple, easy, and effective. A word of advice - unless you want your light leathers to darken, I would refrain from using this on the lighter leathers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best for preserving leather I have used this product for at least 20 years and it never lets me down as it keeps bridles, reins, etc., supple even after being used numerous times through rain, sweat and cold weather when leather can get hard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does an amazing job! I had been looking for a good cleaner/conditioner for an older saddle I purchased, and also to care for my regularly used/cared for tack. This stuff has been GREAT. It keeps my tack in excellent condition, waterproofed it well, and has really helped re-condition the saddle I bought. Now I've another older saddle and the Hydrophane is doing a great job yet again. Lasts a long time too, given how much I've needed to use it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! I have used Hydrophane Leather Dressing for as long as I can remember and it is a wonderful product. I use it to keep my leather supple and also when I get something that is very dry. It does its job great! I would highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time-tested, Excellent Product I have used Hydrophane Leather Conditioner for more than 20 years. For breaking in new tack and keeping it conditioned for years and years, there is nothing that performs better. It won't rot stitching, and it waterproofs leather and keeps it supple for a lifetime. A little bit goes a long way, so it has the added benefit of being economical!
