Older Leather Seats

What is a good product to use on older leather car seats that need a little... not a lot... of TLC?

Lexol Cleaner and Conditioner is good.

I like Connolly Hide Food best.

Lexol is available at Pep Boys.

Hide Food is available from higher quality auto accessories stores and IIRC at Jag and Land Rover dealers. I know I've seen it carried by different Land Rover parts and accessories dealers like Motorcars Ltd. I guess it's now called "Connolly Hide Care" since Connolly went under.

Leatherique http://www.leatherique.com/. On my 97, I tried Lexol a few times and it didn't help much, so I tried leatherique and it made a big difference in the appearance of the tired leather.

Recently I was in Los Olivos, Santa Barbara Wine Country, scouting locations. I met with the owner of Zaca Ranch, 3,000 acres sandwiched between Neverland Ranch and the Zaca Vineyards just off of Foxen Canyon Road. He was a nice guy driving an early nineties Range Rover with the chocolate labs in the back, the guy was straight out of an AD.

Anyway, I jumped in his truck which had been used as a ranch utility for several years and was super impressed with the leather. Turns out he had the seats redone with Elk Hide. This hide was soft yet tough and really comfortable to sit in.

Not that it's a perfect solution for this situation, but I thought it was a nice detail on this older truck.

I think that's badass.
Especially if it looked similar enough to factory that you couldn't tell it had been changed.

Interesting.

My only experience with elk hide is my Churchill hunting gloves-they are very durable as well as comfortable. Seats sound very nice.
