    Hi chaps,

    the back and shoulders of my b3 replica are starting to flake (I think) - basically, lots of little furry tufts are appearing from tiny cracks in the skin. This is no doubt due to me wearing it whilst carrying a rucksack in the winter, but how am I best to fix it? Picture shows what I am getting at:

    I've got some Pecards on the way for my A2, would that work? the leather is so incredibly soft and supple that I doubt I'd be able to work it in properly.

    Thanks,

    Matt

    Matt -

    To me it looks like the top coat on the leather is breaking down and the leather is just chafing a bit. A light coating of Pecard or similar type of leather product should help protect the leather.
