MbMJ Heidi Turnlock Bag- Use a leather protector or not?

  1. I have heard that the MbMJ turnlock bags bleed really easily and I was wondering if I should use some kind of leather protector on my Heidi. I have never used one before so I'm not sure what kind I would use, or how to use it exactly. Any advice would be appreciated,thanks!
     
  2. I would. I use a spray on water and stain repellant on my light leathers, but it sounds like your bag is dark. Should work for that too.
     
  3. you can if you want to, but i don't think it's necessary. i have a turnlock bowler, and i have never had problems with bleeding. i've even worn it out in the rain. the leather is still as soft as the first day i bought it.
     
  4. Rue- My bag is black. Which one do you use?

    Tadpole- Thanks. If I did use it, would it make the leather less soft?
     
  5. i sprayed my firebird tina when I first got it.. thank god i did
     
  6. I was in a hurry to carry my bag so I just used the Kiwi that I have for the kids white sports shoes.
     
  7. Is it less important to treat them if they are a darker color? I know a lighter color might stain easily, but mine is black. I'm not sure if that makes a difference.
     
  8. yea with black, i wouldn't be so worried
