The title pretty much say's it, can I wear my leather jacket in the rain? I know I can but will it damage it badly? I don't plan on using this jacket for dress or anything so the weathered look would be fine, but I'm looking for a weathered look, not abunch on spots on it.:D

Where do you live, in the middle of a desert? :lulz:

Use some leather protection stuff if you want to be on the safe side.

I've been wearing my leather jacket now in the rain and snow for probably 4-5 years now and it still looks fine.

It depends on the quality of the leather, whether it's been treated at all, and where you live. Some cities have acid rain that can really blemish and deteriorate leather. It starts out as white streaks, then you get fading, drying and cracking. UV rays can harm leather too. There are some good leather cleaning/treating products out. I suggest you look into them if you find your jacket is not treated, esp if you live where there's acid rain.

Ok, thanks for the advice guys. I think I'll go ahead and wear it in the rain, and if it gets ruined, I'll send you guys the check.=p

as long as you don't soak it and leave it soaked, it will be fine, giving it some leather lotion a couple times a year will insure it stays soft.

You can technically use the same thing as you use on leather shoes. Not sure what's it called right now. Impregnation or something? Should help protect the jacket.

Buy some of that leather protection spray. I don't remember what its called, but it comes in a spray paint like can often. You simply spray your jacket with it and u can go out in the rain! :)

[COLOR="DeepSkyBlue"]Yeah, just put that spray stuff on it and you'll be just fine. I live in Alabama (means really bad UV's lol) and I have a hat that is much like Indiana Jones (wasn't intentional...) and so we bought that spray stuff and it keeps it from deforming in the rain/sun.

I also wore my leather jacket out in the rain all the time, but I don't think it was even protected lol.[/COLOR]

I'd never put a chemical spray over a nice leather jacket.
