What do you guys use to clean and keep your leather in good condition? Should I put something on it for the winter?

Thanks!

Any name-brand leather cleaners and conditioners will work well, even the automotive products from Pep-Boys, Walmart, etc. If you haven't conditioned them recently, now is as good a time as any (should be done a few times a year, more often if exposed to lots of heat and/or rain).

MCN did a full test in the latest January edition and rated LEXOL Conditioner/preserver a "best buy," with Blue Magic Leather Cream Conditioner and Tenderly Leather Softener...as recommended buys.

P.s. you now owe me a dollar.

I clean mine once a year with saddle soap and then put Lexol on it, but sparingly. Try not to soak the stitching with it, particularly if the stitching is fabric as opposed to nylon, as too much of a good thing can rot the stitching over time.

The guy who made my custom suit said anything for wood, Pledge in particular is great for leather.

Ivan from IM Leathers swears by it.

And yes I have used it, works great. I use a damp cloth with warm water to get all the crap off, then let it dry and then apply Pledge.

I believe all leather jackets sold have have been treated and use some kind of sealant, leather has pours just like wood which means they still breath to some extent.
