Passier Lederbalsam is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 169.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Recommended by the maker of my saddle and my local saddle fitter. Makes my 14 year old dressage saddle look nearly new! Definitely the only saddle conditioner ill buy in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great conditioner! I don’t condition my tack very often, just keep it clean. So this heavier conditioner is great for treating it 1-2x per year. I tried a different brand that had a funky smell, and went back to this, which doesn’t have a distinctive odor. Just plan to wait a day or so for it to fully absorb before using your tack again. I’ve used multiple coats to restore an older saddle that sat in a tack room without conditioning for many years, and it’s supple and like new now. A little goes a long way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never buying anything else again This is an incredible product. I recently used it to restore an older bridle and saddle. It is very easy to use and delivers a brilliant result. I will never buy anything other than this for my tack!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Stuff This balm conditions leather beautifully and leaves no sticky or dulling residue. It will be my go-to from now on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING I am not exaggerating at all when I say that I literally got this today, cleaned all my tack and loved it so much I had to come review it. As someone who edges on the obsessive about my tack being supple and soft I've spend a disturbing amount of $$$ on neatsfoot oil over the last twenty years (and spilled probably 70% of it over barn aisle ways, my bedroom rug, and my nice hardwood kitchen floor) NEVER AGAIN. This stuff is AMAZING, I worked it in with a rag/my hands, wiped it off and my tack has literally never looked or felt so good. Lose the oil and get this stuff, you tack and floors will thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Leather Conditioner I have used a number of leather conditioners over the years, but I keep coming back to this one after being dissatisfied with others. It has just the right amount of pliability so it spreads easily, but it isn't so goopy that it gets everywhere. This is the easiest leather conditioner I've used: after cleaning the tack with saddle soap and letting it dry, I apply some of this, let it soak in, and then buff it with an old tea towel. After buffing, I like to let my saddle sit for a few days and then buff it again, otherwise it is slightly tacky to the touch for the first couple rides; not to the point of annoyance or damaging to my full-seat breeches, but definitely noticeable. I use an old washcloth to apply this product to my saddle, boots, chaps, etc. (The washcloth will be useless for anything else after the first application, so it lives in my leather-care drawer.) A little goes a LONG way, so the tin will last a long time; I've had them last as long as 5 years, depending on how many saddles I cleaned and how often. I use saddle soap and this conditioner on my tack 3-6 times per year, and after each ride I wipe my tack down with a hand towel. My saddle sheds water if we get caught in the rain and wiping the dust off after each ride lets me go a long time between cleanings. My 19-year old saddle looks and feels great after being consistently conditioned with this stuff for the last ten years. I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best one I've used It brought life into a second hand bridle and now it looks brand new. I will never buy another brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great product I’ve been using this product for several years and it never fails to please. A great leather conditioner that also repels water, it’s my everyday go to for halters lead ropes etc. I also use on bridles girth’s and saddles. Never disappointed with this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Conditioner this has been perfect to condition my Passier bridle as well as my CWD saddle. It smells pretty good too.

Date published: 2017-06-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent stuff! I absolutely love this stuff. I was a little hesitant because I'd never tried it before, and old leather cleaning habits die hard, but it has far surpassed my expectations. I've since used it on my new calfskin saddle with wonderful results, it's made my stirrup leathers (calfskin lined, nylon core) extra soft and supple, and I used it on a smartpak bridle. It was shiny but a bit of a dull brown, and after the lederbalsam soaked in it was like a brand new bridle. It's now a rich brown with the same shine, and feels amazing. It also is working fantastic for arid climates such as Nevada. In more humid areas, I would only apply this perhaps once every 2 weeks - perhaps if you use the tack every day for multiple horses then perhaps once a week. So far, it also works beautifully on vegetable tanned leather! I am also going to put this on a new pair of tall boots when I get them. Why not, right? Definitely buying this stuff for the rest of my life.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product. I've been using this product for years. It's not something you would use for everyday cleaning...more for periodic conditioning. It also acts to resist water. Not so good when it's cold, it won't soak in, and will just stay greasy on the surface of the leather. It does leave the leather a little tacky even when it has soaked in, which I don't mind, but some might. I highly recommend it for periodic use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff! Made my saddle look amazing!! And easy to use. A little pricy but worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it! This stuff is awesome! Keeps my dressage saddle looking great!
Date published: 2017-03-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff! This really brings out the color of the leather and makes it feel nice again if it is on the dry side. I did apply a conditioner before hand but helps seal the leather too. A little goes a long way and a lot comes in the tin. Would have been nice if it came with a smal sponge though. Really like this stuff!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best, This is the best stuff ever for leather. You will not need to oil your leather as often. Great stuff!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST PRODUCT FOR LEaTHER EVER! I absolutely love this stuff! MY saddle is about 9 years old & this is the only product ive ever used on it & my saddle still looks & feels like new! Truly good stuff- worth the money

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Passier Lederbalsam works great with daily use to keep leather well-conditioned and supple, especially the noseband of my bridle. Also has a pleasant smell. A little expensive but worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Passier always the best Conditions my tack better than any other brand on the market. It's one of my "must haves"!
Date published: 2016-08-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! So far I really like this product. The leather is supple after use and doesn't feel gummy.
Date published: 2016-08-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love love love this stuff! This stuff is absolutely amazing! Leaves tack super soft and supple for days, without making it sticky or leaving behind a residue. Best of all, since I don't need to use it everyday, the can will last much longer than most other balsms I've used. I highly recommend it :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply wonderful I purchased this product based on recommendation of my Schleess saddle fitter. Wonderful for my new saddle.
Date published: 2016-05-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great conditioner! I use this product regularly on the underside of saddles and all over girths too keep them protected from sweat and to keep the leather soft and from cracking. Has extended the life on numerous girths and a little goes a long way! It can be a bit heavy for regular use on bridles, so I only use on the inside portion of bridles about once a week and then all over once a month or so. Great for recovering old, dry leather too! It does NOT come with a sponge. I have used a sponge with it a couple of times but quiet honestly it is the easiest to use with your fingers, it's a really thick balm and it's easier to control the quantity use put on your leather that way, plus it leaves your hands nice and moisturized too! Great product, smells good (maybe not as good as efax) but does a fantastic job, will be a long-time staple in our barn, highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this stuff My first tin is almost empty (lasted over 4 years), so it was time to resupply. It is a rich formula that leaves leather soft and pliable but not greasy. Make sure you give it time to absorb and you might need to buff the excess off afterwards, but it won't stain. I also love the smell. I use Effax products as well-the ledercombi is great for daily post-ride cleaning, the creme soap is nice for deeper cleaning, but this is my preferred deep conditioner. This regimen has kept my tack clean and luminous for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Really works great. I used it on my old bridle and it really reconditioned the leather. I'm very glad I tried this product.
Date published: 2016-01-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent leather conditioner!!! I used this product for the first time on an old mold and mildew ridden bridle and after using the Passier saddle soap I used the conditioner and wow, it looks new again. Definitely will be in my tack room from here forward.
