LEXOL is always a good choice. Buy the conditioner. Don't waste your money on the cleaner. I have both and I never need to use the cleaner.

Whatever you do, don't use Armorall on leather - or anything else for that matter! It is death. :skull & crossbones:

I would check the detailing forum.

I have used Lexol, but don't recommend it. You will lose the flat mat look and the leather will smell funny.

tried the whole "Check the detailing forum" thing for another related issue and spent 2 hours reading hundreds of pages of things without getting my specific question answered.

So what products do you guys recommend for the leather as a protectant?

Check this thread out last November: Leather Treatment Thread

Leather is "protected" by being used well, cleaned occasionally and "fed" nutrients. Does this now answer your question?
