Product Details

Overview

Repeated soaking and drying of leather can damage the fibers, causing boots to become stiff and eventually ruin the snug fit. Danner Waterproofing Gel blocks water from the outside without compromising breathability. Boots with a GORE-TEX® liner are waterproof, but treating the leather is important in order to prevent the creation of water spots between the leather and the GORE-TEX® liner.
How to: Once the boots have been cleaned, apply the waterproofing gel with a clean rag and work the substance deep into the pores of the leather. Allow the boots to dry for a few minutes and then wipe away the wipe away the excess gel. Reapply when you notice the boots taking on excess water.

Details

  • 4 fl. oz.
  • For use on full grain leather only
  • Not for use on nubuck, suede, or rough-out leather boots
  • Use with Danner Leather Cleaner and Danner Leather Conditioner for best results

      Comments about Danner Waterproofing Gel:

      Really great stuff!
      I like to apply the gel once or twice a month, simply because of what I put my boots through. It really keeps water, snow, and ice off of my boots.
      A great side effect of the gel is that it really shines up my boots.
      How I apply the gel: at first I just used the bottle to drop it on, but that can get a little messy. Now I use a 10CC oral syringe to accurately apply the gel to where I need it.
      I do not just put it anywhere:
      First, I fill the syringe with about 4 CCs (per boot) of the gel.
      Then, I apply a liberal amount on the stitching of my soles and let it soak in.
      Third, I take a paper-towel and use the excess gel from the stitching, and wipe the gel onto the rest of the boots.
      I'm sure everyone has their own system of application but I find this suits me best.
      I've used the gel about four times so far and it really works.
      Thanks Danner.

        Comments about Danner Waterproofing Gel:

        Used on Danner Gortex leather boots. Easy to apply, long lasting. No saturated leather, even when it looks like the color is wearing through. Is pricy but worth it

          Comments about Danner Waterproofing Gel:

          I purchased the waterproofing gel along with some new Danner boots. The gel was placed into the box containing the boots without any seal to hold the cap on, and sure enough when my boots arrived the gel cap had fallen off and the gel was all over the inside of the box.

          Thankfully, there was about 1/3 of the gel left inside the bottle and that was more than enough to prepare my boots for use. The gel works great. It added a lot of character to my boots and has done a great job of protecting them with all of the snow and rain I have worn them through.

          Hopefully Danner will improve their shipping practices. I am supposed to receive a free bottle in the mail, but it has been 25 days since I contacted customer support and I still have yet to receive it.
