RE: wintec saddle repair

Don't use leather with a Wintec. The oils that preserve leather have a tendency to destroy the synthetic fabric (this is essentially a knit fabric over a cross-linked polyethelyne foam), from which Wintec's are made.
As to patching them, these saddles were never designed to be durable, but rather throw-away saddles. You might follow Garrison Keillor's advice on the Duck Tape Council, and try duct tape to cover the holes. You might also try to "darn" the holes, just as you would an old sock. However,I don't know of a "goo" that will fill holes and stay put, rather like patching potholes in the highways.

Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows how to best patch holes on a wintec saddle?  Also is it ok to use stirrup leathers made out of leather on synthetic saddles?  Thanks for your help.
