The leather is coated, so in my experience the best way to protect it is to keep on top of cleaning it. Wear is primarily caused by the 'rubbing' of dirt and contaminants on the surface, and any 'protection' you apply is more surface contaminants to attract dirt and subsequent damage.

In my experience, a two-weekly clean with Dr Leather wipes or spray does the job, but others may have their own routine!
