Leather Therapy
Restorer and Conditioner
Tack Room



Manufacturer: Leather Therapy
Model: Restorer and Conditioner
Category: Tack Room

Purchase: I purchased Leather Therapy online through ebay for about $15 for an 8 ounce bottle. I had some tack that I wanted to sell and I thought I should condition it a bit first.

Likes: It did make the leather a little smoother, and helped take off the dirt.

Dislikes: I did not really feel that it lived up to its hype, and thus was somewhat expensive for what it actually was. The leather on my tack did not feel more supple afterwards, although I only used it on tack I was planning to sell so I did not give it repeated uses. I didn't feel that it really worked any better than a bit of soap and water and some old-fashioned fiebing's leather conditioner. It did nothing to restore my tack that cheaper products couldn't have done (such as take off some mold and dirt), and it did not inhibit mold from reforming when put in the basement. Using it sparingly, as they suggest, didn't seem to have any effect and I found that I had to use a good amount to see any results. It also took a very long time to use.

Quality: This is available in several sizes and comes in a sturdy and well-decorated bottle. The oil is not as greasy as some are, but still sticks to hands. It is very liquid, so be sure to do it in an oil where drips don't matter.

Summary: I did not feel that it was worth the $15 that I spent on the bottle. It cannot be used on suede, and didn't appear to work any better than cheaper products and removing or inhibiting mold and mildew or dust and dirt. It you really feel the need to try it yourself, try to find it for $8 or less for 8 ounces, so that you don't feel too dissapointed when you realize that it really doesn't work any better than what you were already using. I thought it was a disappointment, but I gave it a two because it did remove dirt and smoothed out the leather.
