Leather Protectant?

I have a leather holster I want to coat with some type of protectant. Can any of you gentlemen recommend a good product?

I used to use something called Sno-Seal on my leather boots.

I use saddle soap to clean my leather holsters and boot sealer to protect them from the weather. also do the same thing for the cartridge belt.

I have used baseball glove oils with good success. Mink oil rubbed in and set in the sun to soak in is good also.

I use saddle soap to take the squeak out of any holsters that have parts that rub, and mink oil on any smooth leather as a sealer. I don't do anything for my suede Galco holsers.

Re: Leather Protectant?

11 years ago I was in El Paso, Texas and treated myself to a pair of Lucchese Boots which are very expensive,all made by hand. The place where I bought them said to use nothing but Bickmore 4 leather conditioner. They're Leather cleaner is Bickmore 1. They have been in business since 1882.It's the best I have ever used. Check them out on the net.
