    Whatís the best waterproof product for lowa boots

    Ok. So Iím sick of the lowa spray then the leather cream, so expensive if you do this after every outing in the wet.


    Keen to know whatís a better product to use if there is one? Cheers

    I use Hanwags (spelling) it's what was recommended to me by another person who has Lowa boots I personally don't have Lowas and assume the boots are no longer covered by warranty if your happy to use any product in them.

    Yip me too on the Huberds shoe grease, wear my boots daily in the job, scrub barring, wind throw runs and general track work. my boots have yet to crack or anything, and they spend plenty of time walking in the wet and i am yet to get wet feet apart from river crossings....dry feet happy worker.
    All my boots are suede type leather(Meindl air stream, Andrews chainsaw) so they suck up the oil well not sure how this stuff would go with the shinier leather type of boots.
    Good luck.

    @Sarvo snow seal has been sold in NZ for over 20years. Used it for quite a while. Pretty good, but that was before Goretex lined boots were common.
    I used a product called Effax Balsam on my Meindls, but I reckon it reduced the breathability of the boots.
