Bad Ass Leather creme

My buddy at work lent this to me to try on my corbin seat. Pretty much made it look like new again. Click here

Don't go riding through the woods. Those big bears will be sniffing your butt. Something else might be staining your pants

Did not know bears ate minks.

And should point out that Corbin seats are not all leather.
From their website:

"Take a look at the topside. Your new seat is hand tailored and most likely has genuine leather seating inserts. We use leather where it contacts your body for maximum comfort and vinyl on the sides to support the foam. Why? Vinyl doesn't stretch like leather does, so it provides good support to the foam shape. Also, side panels are susceptible to stress marks that vinyl resists. This gives maximum durability and the comfort of genuine leather."

So, using leather conditioner on vinyl is like buying lawn mower for AstroTurf.

LOL/\/\

I have always used saddle soap and mink oil for leathers.
I can't open the link from here at work, but is it some sort of cleaner or a stain?

Seems more like you fcked it up.

Some leather , real leather, cleaning solutions contain solvents that will destroy plastics, like the vinyl of the stock seat.
