    It's good to get them sent off for conditioning now and again, but keeping them cleaned and conditioned with Lexol yourself every couple of months will help keep them soft. I never used to condition my leathers at all, then found out the hard way when I crashed and the leathers tore to pieces because they had become so brittle.

    Ana with leather and lace, either drop off in houston or get with her at the track.

    do it yourself! and you might skip the lexol condition...its being outsourced manufactured these days and is not the same lexol from years ago. https://www.facebook.com/BrianYuanRa...5177918445423/

    the method is from Barnacle Bill's leathers. I successfully washed a few now.

    Do you have a recommended conditioner that you use ? Iíve been using lexol but hearing itís a bit more brutal than it used to be.

    From my point of view with the leathers, I assess the suit's needs for cleaning and conditioning. Some suits require more intervention ie older A* suits.

    To keep it simple lots of water to remove salt is a great step to keeping the leathers from decaying.

    So for those of us who sweat a lot, hose down the suit after the race weekend, inside and out?
