Very, Very gooey. It get on everything.

StarStarStarStarStar Pricey, but...

Ownership: more than a year
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Overall great stuff. I find the odor pleasant and it really does seem to do a good job protecting the leather of a Brooks saddle. Both my and my son's saddles have around 15,000 miles of heavy use and the leather has stayed supple with no cracking or other problems.

Cons

Slightly expensive but a small tin lasts a long time. Put it in a plastic bag, because if it is carried on the bike, like on a tour, it melts and the tin leaks. (OK, maybe I should have transferred some to a leakproof container.)

StarStarStarStarStar Always use this stuff

Only thing that goes on my Brooks besides my butt. Both my saddles are aging well and are fully protected from the weather.

Cons

None

StarStarStarStarStar Now I have enough dressing for two lifetimes

by
Ownership: a few months

Pros

The Brooks leather dressing is excellent.

Cons

I bought a Brooks saddle, too. I thought I should get some dressing to take care of my new leather saddle. What nobody told me was that the saddle comes with a can of dressing. Now I have two cans which is a lot. It's great stuff
