Dainese Leather Protection Cleaning Kit
Yes it's expensive, but how much did your leather jacket cost you?
I clean my Dainese Super Speed C2 after almost every ride and condition it after several. It works great and has kept my jacket looking new. It even kept it looking brand new after an off through the dirt. Other than the dented metal plate, you can't even tell the jacket has touched the ground.
I definitely recommend and will be buying more.

dat vintage leather
My dad gave me a jacket he wore when he was my age and the leather on it was not in the greatest of shape. I used this cleaning and conditioning product and it looks 100 times better then it did. Im not scared to take it out in the rain anymore.

This product works well
I've used this on a white jacket and a black pair of pants with no problems. It cleans and conditions the leather. Make sure you follow the directions.

cleaner/conditioner works well, but pricey.
I purchased the cleaner/conditioner for my WHITE racing pelle because I figured that dainese tailors their cleaning agents for their leather products. I clean my jacket after every (other) ride due to it being a white jacket. The cleaning agent works well when applied promptly after riding. Dainese suggests that you clean bug guts immediately so that stains do not set in. The conditioner leaves a nice sheen to the leather and adds that new-leather smell. I am satisfied with the products cleaning capability, but am dissatisfied with the amount of cleaning required for owning a white jacket.

Does work, if you follow the instructions
The stuff works if you follow the instructions. You can't let the dirt build up and you must only use a gentle circular motion during both the cleaning and the protection applications. I used the stuff to clean my Dainese Yu Lady white one-piece race suit. It's an awesome white again, except for a spot by the knee where I squashed one of those nasty, juicy bleeding-yellow bugs. Ick. There the leather is still slightly stained. The only reason it gets 3 stars instead of 5, is price alone. My kit came with the suits, I don't think I would have bought it had I known how expensive the kit is. It lasts for two treatments! Dainese says to use it on your gear 2-3 times a year or more as needed. I clean my gear once a year, twice tops.
Try saddle soap to clean and then follow it up with leather lotion for a cost-effective alternative, however it will take a lot longer since you have to "rinse" the saddle soap with a moist cloth as you go, then let the garment dry, apply the leather lotion, let it dry yet again, and finally buff the entire suit with a soft boot brush to bring out its natural shine. However, I don't know what it would do to Dainese's D-Skin suits in the long run, since that leather goes through a special process to make is supple using silicone, waxes and whatnot. I think I'm going to stick to the Dainese cleaner kit for my Dominia two-piece, since it is a D-Skin suit.

SUCKS!!! My BF spent $35 to clean his off-white suit and it did NOTHING!! Then I tried it on my white leather jacket. Couldn't even clean off surface dirt. We were worried we weren't scurbbing hard enough or something, and it ended up RUINING a tiny spot on the leather we tested it on. And the dirt was still there!!!
We ended up using a furniture/car leather cleaner by Blue Magic I bought at CVS and it worked instantly.
