+1 on Lexol Conditioner. I use it on anything leather that I want to last...leather couches, slings, holsters, belts, car seats. It is water soluble, easy to apply, soaks INTO the leather (rather than sitting on top), is not oily or greasy. It can get a little sticky if you apply more than the leather can take, in which case you simply wipe it down with a damp cloth and let it dry. Almost no smell and definitely no perfumes. Read up on it and you will be impressed.

Not a stock holder, but probably should be.
