So far so good, actually I wore the jacket in heavy rainfall and hit it with some steam (borrowed my girlfriends steamer haha) and wore it a lot. After the steam the jacket felt a tad bit dry so I hit it with another application of conditioner. I won't do any other things with it but wear it for the coming year at least, the leather is feeling really supple and healthy atm. not oily to the touch but nourished and softened up. I read about Lost Worlds jackets not absorbing anything, well, this one does. With the right amount of attention (spent another 4 hours for the second application) Will keep you posted as the weather gets colder here.
