In the UK a gooey/rubbery stuff called Evo-stik was our best contact glue. Beloved by glue-sniffers everywhere. Original formula banned and replaced by some useless gloop. 

All forms of Nanny-Stateism and Political Correctness have gone to ridiculous levels over here.

Better stop now,

As far as Weldwood is concerned there is an effective contact cement and then there is the California version of Weldwood.  The California version is not worth your time.  I had to buy out of state through Amazon to get the more flammable (but works) version that the People's Democratic Republic of California is protecting us from.  I used it for the saddlebags on my Harley Davidson.  They are an all leather construction and tend to "deflate" over a short amount of time.  Looks terrible.  Through a club affiliation I got shaped double thick hard leather inserts for the front and back sides.  In the instructions it was recommended the non-California version of Weldwood Contact Cement.  It has held fast since 2003.  In the pictures you can see what happens to the bag over time and what it should look like (my bike). Actually comes nice from the factory, but leather does not keep it's shape very well.

If you look for Weldwood adhesive at the local hardware store, this type, works very well. A bit messy and as mentioned, use a cheap throw away brush. Can clean up with lacquer thinner.
