Boots will shrink if you dry them with a heater... My friend dried his smx plus boots in front of a space heater, now he says they feel a good bit tighter
astar is one of the last companies to use cow leather on their boots still. well the smx+ boots do anyway.
most everyone else has moved on to lorica (synthetic leather) it's supposedly better. some high end suits are made of it now.

Re: Drying gear out?

If you really want a hanger to dry it, look to a different sport, Like SCUBA gear, its called a Hangair and works great I own two of them for my gear, and 60 bucks for them, holds alot of weight, as I hang my heaviest of wet suits and even dry suits from them.

but use a good conditioner as others have said, and sorry to pull this from page 4 but thought if I can save people cash, its all good.

+1 for the Lexol. The spray is really easy to use and helps get the bugs off. If you ride in the rain a lot, maybe you need a rain suit to go over your leathers. I've got one. They're fairly cheap.

Re: Drying gear out?

after a rain race weekend, i lay the leathers and gear on a bunch of towels on a guest bed with the ceiling fan on. here in Florida it's rain forest humid, so ya need the gear inside in the AC.
whatever ya do, don't leave em in the trailer or in a gear bag. i'm guessing the funk will be intense.
