And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

    Passier Lederbalsam is rated 4.8632 out of 5 by 117.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! My trainer turned me on to this product and now I'm hooked. Since tack costs an arm and a leg, I really want to take good care of mine. Nothing does a better job on my boots, saddle and bridle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing for all leather This is the only leather product I will use anymore. My old trainer got me hooked on it and it has brought saddles back from the dead! Love it, and I use it on all my leather stuff.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for tack old and new The winter weather has left both my old tack (25+ years) and newer tack very dry. My old faithful conditioning products just weren't helping. This product has helped bring back the luster to the old bridle, softened and conditioned the new bridle, and my saddle feels great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great leather conditioner Love this leather conditioner. It helped an old saddle go from dry to supple in record time. A little bit goes a long way, so the can will last a while. Great product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Conditioner! Wow, I am in love with this stuff for deep conditionings. I don't think I will use it often, as it seems like 2-3 times a year would be plenty with this heavy conditioner but it sure brings old tack back to life. It makes all my leather soft and supple again, and really seems to make a big difference in my overall tack's well being. I love how it makes my tack ever so slightly tacky after using it but its not sticky or gross. Its a great product.My mom even steals it and uses it on our leather furniture once a year!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome stuff It was recommended to me by my saddler to get some sort of Lederbalsam instead of using oil. I have to say this makes my saddle (and all other leather products i use it on now!) feel so soft, and just great. It smells like a vanilla candle to me too, and makes my saddle a little tacky, not slippery. My friends have used it too and they really love it as well. It seems like it will last quite awhile, so well worth the money spent!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the Best I use this and Effex Leather's all you need for perfect tack...clean, pliable, not sticky.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Leder-AWESOME! I love all Passier products! Ledarbalsam truly leaves my leather apparel shining, clean and conditioned. I use a can every 3 months, as you need very little! Beware, you really do need time to let it sink in, and wear jeans you don't care about, it stains. Start with Passier Saddle Soap for amazing results. All in all, Passier has hit the ballpark with this!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well have been trying a bunch of different stuff lately. only used this once so far. love it almost as much as stubbens product. makes leather soft but need to have time for it to sink in!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow This is the BEST tack cleaner I've ever used . LOVE THE SMELL and the conditioner is really good too.
    Date published: 2010-08-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best conditioner out there I've tried just about every conditioner out there, and Passier Lederbalsam can't be beat for the price. It leaves every piece of tack soft and supple with a shine that lasts! Plus, it dries without leaving the tack sticky. Even with cheap or very dry leather, you will see instant and lasting results. You can use it so sparingly that the jar will last a long time and you'll get your money's worth.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Conditioner Don't waste your money on Leather CPR and other combination soaps/conditioners. A bar of glycerin soap, a sponge and some Lederbalsam and you'll have the nicest leather in the barn. The scent is great, too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love, love this stuff Not only does this product keep my brand new saddle soft and supple, it smells wonderful. It is the only product I used to break in my saddle. It also gives the saddle a bit of "grip" that is much appreciated.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a classic for a reason What can I say? There is a reason the competition strives to match the quality of Passier leather care products - and never quite succeeds.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buttery Soft Leather Lederbalsam is amazing! I live in the desert and my saddles and bridles really need a good leather dressing. Lederbalsam leaves all my leather tack buttery soft. The only drawback I've found is not to use it right before a show on the saddle flaps and leathers. It makes a distinctive squeak as my tall boots rub against the saddle. I don't have that problem if I just use Passier saddle soap for 'show cleaning.'

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this product The best leather conditioner I have found - with one treatment, leather is noticeably softer and more hydrated. Let it soak in and then rub off with a soft towel, and it gives my saddle a wonderful, subtle shine
    Date published: 2010-06-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels and Smells Great Love this conditioner! Really soaks in and makes all leather feel great. It has a pleasant powdery smell too. I wouldn't use anything else after cleaning my leather.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps leather soft I bought this to replace a similar brand that smartpak doesn't carry. It has met all my needs. It keeps my tack soft and supple without leaving it oily or slippery. It smells good too! It leaves leather slightly tacky which provides great grip for those questionable rides.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best leather conditioner This leather conditioner is the best! It keeps your leather soft and supple, not tacky. You only need a little bit at a time so the container lasts quite awhile.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best for Passier This conditioner makes my Passiers look brand new again! I set them out in the sun for a bit to open up the leather pores, rub in, and rub off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST Conditioner!! This is definitely the BEST saddle conditioner out there.It completely restored my saddle and bridle. I was using other cleaners and conditioners, but they were not doing a thing and my leather was cracking horribly.Passier Lederbalsam COMPLETELY brought it back to life! At least 90% of the cracks disappeared with the first treatment.My friend, who saw the saddle/bridle before couldn't believe they were the same items.I will never use anything else again. :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite I've tried a lot of leather conditioners, and this product is far and away my favorite. I have a saddle with pre-treated "grippy" leather, and there are only a few conditioners that really work well on it. This product soaks in well and doesn't leave any residues. It won't stain your clothes and it smells wonderful! I use it on my reins too, and it makes them so supple and soft!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Stuff This is the best leather conditioner I have ever used. Brings life to even old and dry leather

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! This is the best leather conditioner I have ever used. Bonus: it smells good! It makes my saddle super soft and adds just enough tackiness to the seat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from USING FOR OVER 28 YEARS Bought my first can in 1983 in Spain. Have been using it sparingly since. It has kept all my tack wonderfully butter soft even after many years under desert conditions. Would recommend this hands down!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from the best Nothing outperforms this product on leather. It is worth the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE THIS STUFF!!! This is fantastic stuff! First of all--it smells like honey, which is AMAZING! Secondly, it does an amazing job at conditioning my leather goods. I had an old, nasty leather halter, that looked beautiful after two applications of this! It does wonders for my saddle as well. I bought it new, and Lederbalsam made it all soft and buttery! :) As a plus, it also makes your saddle "sticky." Being a dressage rider, this is a great plus for a little extra security!! Great product that I'll always keep on hand!
    Date published: 2009-12-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stuff I bought the Lederbalsam a few weeks ago and have had amazing results. I left it on for only an hour on a brand spanking new saddle and it softened up considerably. After a few days I conditioned it again and left it on overnight which a lot of online reviews recommended and my brand new very stiff saddle now feels ten years old.This stuff is amazing and I would recommend it to anyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful results have looked all over for this product, great on anything leather, shoes, halters, the results.
