Whet your appetite with our Water Protectant No. 3 Recipe Guide!


Water Protectant contains deeply penetrating natural oils and waxes that simultaneously condition and protect your leather. Designed for leather frequently exposed to harsh weather conditions, its thick consistency will bolster your leather’s natural defenses while providing a rich source of nourishment to keep it healthy and strong. When applied, Water Protectant should cause water to bead on the surface of your leather, rolling off rather than absorbing. It will ward off rain, snow, mud, and other elements, ensuring maximum outdoor protection for all your swashbuckling adventures.


Brewed to perfection with all-natural ingredients and an optimal pH-balanced recipe, this leather conditioner stands out from the crowd for its distinctive style: a rich, creamy consistency laced with scent of fir tree. As you condition, this recipe will recall the untamed, rugged sensations of the wilderness to your mind, teasing your nose with a whiff of the great outdoors. This subtle sensation lasts only as long as the conditioner takes to absorb, and will not affect your leather’s natural scents – we’re as big a fan of them as you are! All the while, Water Protectant is environmentally friendly and made with FDA approved, cosmetic grade ingredients completely natural and safe for human skin. We’ve even watched people drink our Leather Milk recipe straight out of the bottle like actual milk! We wouldn’t personally advise doing this, of course!


Recipe No.3 is also ideal for excessively dry leather or leather in need of restoration. High concentrations of oils and nutrients greatly supplement proteins holding leather fibers together, and will also give your leather a more pleasant look and texture. It is very effective for covering scratches and scars, and is known to restore color on some leathers. If you have already used Water Protectant, you will not need to apply any other leather conditioners to your leather, at least until it is ready to be conditioned again. All Leather Milk products are made in USA.

    Bought this because of all the great reviews listed... and they're all correct. Chamberlains is easy to use, smells decent and works wonderfully. Now all my boots and bags look brand spankin' new. I think this might have to be THE stocking stuffer for my family and friends this year...

    Great product! Very effective, and easy to apply. Soaked right in to my leather boots with no extra mess and dried well overnight.

    I used this on a Mission recliner with leather cushions that were neglected for 10 years. I have never seen anything restore leather like this before. The cushions do not look like new (that would be silly) but they no longer look like they were rode hard and put away wet. They look acceptable now and will not have to be immediately replaced. I just reordered to process the rest of my leather items.

    Absolutely love the product. It truly is the best leather protectant/conditioner around! It did darken my saddleback tote a little, so be prepared. But, I actually love the way the leather looks and the protection this products delivers. I am very happy.

    I got a beautiful black leather coat for my birthday. I live in the Seattle area so needless to say I didn’t feel comfy wearing it out in our Winter/Spring weather. That is until I got this! I’m hyper-sensitive to smell and it had a very pleasant odor while applying the product. Once it dried, there was no smell – just the wonderful new leather smell of the jacket. And it blended perfectly. In fact it made it a little softer and a little more even toned. It was easy to use and I have since tested it in some of our rain storms. Zero staining and the water just ran right off. I highly recommend this.

    I have been purchasing Saddleback leather goods throughout the year now and got turned on to Chamberlains Leather Milk through them. I bought the #1 to clean and condition my leather, as well as my car seats and wallet and whatnot. I bought the #3 for a duffel bag that I bought that came to me rather dull and lifeless and wanted to make sure that it was protected from the elements because I was heading into Colorado for a trip. This stuff is great. I protected the bag very well. Wiped it on (went on easy) and let it sit overnight. Came back to it and wiped off the residue (because when it dries it can leave a residue in areas where you glob it on and don't spread it evenly). After that I buffed it some and the leather looks great. As a test, I poured a glass of water over the bag and the water just ran right off and never bothered the leather. I'm really happy with this stuff. I can see it being used for nice bags that are exposed to the outdoor elements in bad climates and nice leather shoes/boots. Thanks Chamberlain's!
