Leather conditioner
I am looking for leather conditioner but I'm not sure which one is better? What brands / kinds do you recommend?

Leather New ... avoid it. I hate it. It's sticky, makes your tack sticky, dyes light tack, molds fast ... just don't use Leather New. It's horrible.

I really don't like any of the liquid type of conditioners. They just get a little messy. I like the more ... creams? I use Fieblings (sp?) Saddle Soap, in the little round tin. You can get em at TSC ;) Makes tack supple, soft, and doesn't mold ;)

Best I've used and I've used lots (Lexol, Dr Johnson, Connolly, neatsfoot oil, etc, etc)

I love Effax (Effax Leder Balsam | Dover Saddlery). Not just a great conditioner, but has awesome smell too (coconut).

When I worked in the restoration of library materials, (very old) many of the books had leather bindings. The only product we used on them was Lexol's Conditioner as it is neutral, being neither acidic nor alkaline.

It's kinda hard to find, but I've had good luck with Bickmore products Bickmore, Horse Products, Leather Care, Equine Health Care, Hat Care, Horse Grooming

I really like Carr Day Martin Belvoir Leather Balsam, Effax Leder Balsam and Effax Leder Soft. The Effax Leder Soft is a lighter oil, the other 2 are deeper conditioning balms.

I LOVE my Skidmore's leather cream. Made my cheap, crappy made-in-India bridle actually soft! :shock:
