We patrol at dawn.
Greet the sunrise at the summit, rip the skins off your skis, and don't forget to slip Black Diamond's Patrol Glove on before the ride down. This classic workhorse boasts hard-wearing goat leather and abrasion-resistant fabrics for long-lasting durability, and the waterproof, breathable BDry insert offers reliable protection in deep pow. Thermolite insulation gives that special touch of warmth that dawn patrollers need, and Polartec Thermal Pro High Loft fleece wicks moisture off your sweaty palms when you're touring up for the second lap.

- Q & A
These gloves came with a small packet of NikWax to help condition and seal the leather. Awesome!
My questions are:
First, is it ok if during the application of NikWax I get a little bit on the synthetic/nylon part of the glove? Of course I'm trying to limit it, but will the wax disrupt the breathability of the nylon?
Second, is it advised to also coat the suede/brushed leather part on top of the thumb that serves as a nose wipe?
