We recommend that you use Nikwax on your leather gloves or leather boots. This is why we supply small sachets with our leather products.
Use the required amount (normally not the entire trial packet) of Nikwax that comes with new gloves or boots on the day before the first use. Rub it on the leather parts to make them super soft, flexible and highly water resistant. Be careful with other non-leather parts.
The next morning before you hit the slopes wipe it off with a cloth. No cause for concern if the wax leaves some optical blemish (stains) just after using it, it will disappear soon.
Save the other half of the packet for the middle or end of the season before you store your products, this will keep them fresh and ready for the next time you need them.
