As many of you may know I've just got my holy grail (preloved 05 black city), a work and a bubblegum ggh day.

The question is whether or not to treat them with a rain and stain repellant. As they won't ship apple guard to Denmark I'll have to use a generic brand. I've used it previously but now I am just worried it can damage the leather on my holy grail (and other beauties).

What is your recommendation?

I sure wouldn't treat them with something generic. I have read that some members have used Wilson's leather repellent though and have been happy with it so maybe you can check into it. I have used Shining Monkey on my LV's leather with amazing results and have used it on my white day bag with perfect results also. I use that bag a lot in the Spring and Summer. Maybe try what ever you decide to use on a small coin purse or something first and see if it works without changing the leather etc. You did get some lovely bags Radissen. Congrats!

Well I've used a repellant from a leather shop (does that make any sense?). What I meant to says was from a shop that sells leather. And the results been good.
