What boot spray are you all using to keep water from soaking into the leather? Thanks

Never used or heard of a spray for boots worth a damn. Have used mink oil, snowseal, Danner boot dressing, and other ointments, greases, waxes that I can't remember brand names of with various levels of effectiveness other the years. One thing I've learned is that there isn't a single product that works for all leathers.

Not a spray, but works really well.

Sno-Seal

Hit the boots with a heat gun and apply sno-seal. Leather soaks it in and your boots are waterproof.

I have been using Sno-Seal for almost 50 years.

Sno-Seal on leather boots and moccasins.

Revive-X Leather Gel WP and Conditioner for leather gloves.

Revive-X Nubuck and Fabric WP spray for those boot materials.


Don't ask me about my military service or heroic acts...most of it is untrue.

I've tried them all!

Bear Grease is all that I use!

It's not pretty, but very effective and it's never failed me!

I think that your leading statement is the key!

In today's world, we have a lot of different products, that we're dealing with!

Like you said "Single Product for ALL Leather's"!

There's so many products out there that we're trying to deal with, and keep,
Sealed, and Maintained.
Who knows what we're dealing with half the time?

Back to your Original statement, as I said Earlier, that I learned for Real True Leather,
that Bear Grease is all I use!

My old buddy used to say "Something Slippery is Better than Nothing at All"!

With all this fake Leather, and other products that are imitation Leather,
and Look alike products.
I use whatever works for that stuff in the Family, but Real Leather!

Bear Grease is still readily available!

I guess first thing is are your boots quality leather and waterproof? I use Obenauf's Leather Oil on my Meindl leather boots and the leather stays great and have never leaked, ever. I can walk through creeks and water does not penetrate.
