    I have this product and my husband wants me to use it to mend his now torn leather jacket.....

    What do you think....should I?

    I have nothing to test it on that is like his jacket, so if I do it, it will be on the jacket...

    I have put this off for 3 months and he really needs his jacket for an upcoming trip.....HELPPPPPP

    I had not heard of this product so I did a little Googling.

    Here is the Bo-Nash website including videos:
    http://www.bonash.com

    Here is a PDF I found on how to use it:
    http://bonash.com/bi.pdf

    Nowhere in the above could I find any reference to it mending leather. How did your husband happen to purchase the product? Do you know for sure it has been used to repair leather? My concern would be the amount of heat needed for the bonding process; heat could damage the leather.

    If I *were* going to use a bonding agent with heat to repair leather, I think it would be a lot easier to use a non-powdered fusible such as Steam-a-Seam with a cloth patch (same color as leather) providing reinforcement. Is there a hem area where you could test if (1) iron heat would discolor the leather and (2) whether a fusible would actually hold on leather?

    I went to Amazon and found this leather repair kit with reviews:
    http://www.amazon.com/Leather-Repair...dp/B0002Q6362/ . This type of kit does not seem to require heat, so might be a better way to repair the tear.

    I don't like it. Haven't used it on leather but did try it on my ironing board cover and it didn't work well.

    i would be leary of using it on leather. I have some but was not impressed.
    i did fix a small tear in a leather jacket by getting a matching piece and glueing it carefully. When DD talked to the dry cleaners about fixing a tear in her jacket it was quite expensive so we decided to try fixing it ouselves.
