Collonil is one of the most well know and trusted waterproof treatments around. You may ask what makes it so popular? It's simple:
Here is what they say:
This high quality colourless waterproof protection employs a revolutionary net-like structure of polymer chains, creating a waterproof membrane onto your footwear. CARBON PRO's revolutionary technology is the first water proofer that works as a ‘spray on’ membrane. This latest technology gives perfect adhesion on all flexible surfaces whilst allowing the material to breathe, giving extended long-lasting protection against dirt and moisture. Carbon Pro can be used together with all other Collonil Care Products.
Suitable for use with: All Leathers, High-Tex Materials, Nubuk, Smooth leather, Suede, Synthetics, Textile, Clothing with softshell membranes
Instructions for use:
Make sure surface is clean and dry, use in a well-ventilated room. Spray from at least 15cm away from freshly cleaned material. Allow to completely dry, for optimal effect spray twice. Repeat this every week for heavy use items or every two - three weeks for less frequently used items.
What we say
Carbon pro acts as a barrier between the leather and the all the nasty stuff you can pick up at the stables. Not only does carbon pro waterproof the leather of your footwear but it also prevents mud and muck sticking directly to the leather and damaging and drying them out.
It is still advised that you use another product such as dubbin along side carbon pro in order for maximum protection and prolong the life of your boots.
