I didn't like Lexol on my Nordkap. I use Zaino's cleaner and conditioner.

I use Bick 4.<p>I also use it on my draft horse harness, boots, tack, etc. It's a little pricey, but worked nicely on my interior. Maybe they have samples for you.<p><br><A HREF="http://www.bickmore.com/bickmore/Leather%20Care/Bick4.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.bickmore.com/bickmo....html</A><br>

Re: Lexol = Love for your leather (sinisin63)

I find Bick 4 at my feed supply store. <p>Shoe stores may also have it, tack shops oronline. Although for some reason few of the horse people use Lexol on their tack.<p>Google Bickman (Bick leather products) and you'll find info about it. <p>

I was able to find a large quantity of Lexol at an equestrian supply store and feed mill...$20 for a gallon is a bargain. I like how the Lexol conditions the R Leather, but I'm convinced that there's got to be something better out there. I'll try that Bick 4...

Re: (m3nt0s)

I wonder if some of these companies won't hand out a few samples. Especially the pricier stuff.
