protecting leather

Well my seats finally started that notorious cracking n the leather and I was just wondering if anybody has tried any type of chemicals/leather treatment to prolong this? Not a fan of seatcovers either. If thers already a thread regarding this, please direct me (cant seem 2 search stickies on my fon)

Can't prevent natural surface "folding" of leather through normal use. If the outer "film" is cracked through its probably too late, I've never had that problem with my cars and I only use conditioner 2 to 3 times a year.

I have had great success with Lexol leather cleaner and protectant. It does not create a shiny or slippery finish and really does a great job.
