    Harkila help.

    I have a Harkila Kodiak suit and it got well muddy lifting my CBR's over fences on my shoot and i washed it at low temperature and the leather patches on the jacket and trousers lost a bit of colour. I was thinking of Meindl Wax to bring the lustre back as it has dried a wee bit lighter... Any better suggestions?
    Thanks.

    If you don't want to make the leather facings shiney but prefer to keep them as they came from Harkila then I'd avoid any of the waxy products.

    I use this product on my Kodiak jacket and other suede/nubuck leathers and find it works well: http://www.leathercareandrepair.co.u..._protector.php

    Hi Red Dot, I have a Harkila Kodiak suit and was advised by Harkila to use their Harkila Mink Oil, (rub it in the leather gently was their instructions) it can be purchased from uttings or swillingtons for under 10 . Hope this helps.

    That stuff sounds like it might have a side effect.
