Default Re: Conditioning an old leather bag



Greetings, tanks hobbyman,

All of my bags were the old L&Ms... and still
are... :)

Some... in need of an Easter-like resurrection...
and I've always used the old standard Air Tight.

Most leather bags will last a really looong time...
if proper care... is thoughtfully given...

Wishing you... the Best o' Luck... with yours!!

Pip01

Thank you Pip01. Do you know if Air Tight and Robertsons are pretty much the same type of seasoning?

Same type of product with more or less the same ingredients (so far as we are told...), but slightly different proportions.

...and olí Airtite is the only one. ď... guaranteed to make any bag airtight that is not actually burst...Ē

Whenever I'm tuning my band's drones, I can always tell who's using a leather bag, with airtight....
Not so many of them around anymore.
But since I've been at this game so long, I simply choose to feel nostalgic about it....

OK, all you leather bag acolytes. Give it up! Which one smells the best: Airtight or Robertsons?

Ah, tanks hobyman,

As with Calum II... Airtight is the only one I
(and all of my mates in my first... Old Band)
ever used... and gratefully... as it served to
replace some of the home-made concoctions
that they had brought with them from the Home
Isles... and that stank... unto... High Heaven!! :)

And so... and as noted above... it's "The Old
Nostalgia" :) ... that may be the only... and the
olfaction-based... guidepost... for any... of us. :)

Hmm... Rather like the sudden sensing of a
vintage perfume... wafting in the air... totally
quite unexpected... and bringing back clear
memories... of an Old Flame... :)

Odd... ain't it... how our minds... and memories...
quite suddenly give Life!!... to the simplest... of
our daily matters?? Ain't it just?! :)

Trusting that by... "sniffing about"... you may find...
"The Best"... for you... :)

Regards... and Happy... Sniffing About!! :)

Pip01

You are the Man, Pip01! I bow in deference to your expertise. AirTight it is!
