I don't know much about saddles, but I do know a bit about good quality baseball gloves. I might be inclined to use a good quality baseball glove conditioner on my leadther saddle (once I actually get one). The Akadema conditioner on attach page is particularly good in my experience as both a conditioner and cleaner on my ball gloves. I am not a leather expert but I think what any leather needs is something that cleans and conditions without saturating or leaving build up in the leather. I'd be curious to compar contents of glove conditioner with what is in Brooks conditioner.
