Like any other piece of equipment if you look after it correctly it can last a long time. We suggest cleaning the leather with saddle soap and oil as needed. The elastic can be cleaned with a wet or dry dandy brush and a non-chemical shampoo/soap and air dry. The neoprene is "delicate" and needs some TLC. Just wipe with a damp cloth and don't be rough. Although it is solidly adhered to the leather it won't take rough treatment and is not covered under any warranty.
