Any oil or conditioner available would properly preserve the leather on this Marucci Pro Founders' Series (MFGFS13001B Camel First Base Mitt). Overall, there will be no product that is far and away the best product to use. The key would be to use the least amount of oil or conditioner that will still cover the entire glove. If you use too much oil or conditioner, it will treat the leather, but it will also weigh down the glove (most players want to avoid having a heavy glove).

Based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Marucci was founded by two former Big Leaguers and their athletic trainer who began handcrafting bats for some of the best players in the game from their garage. Fast forward to today, and that dedication to quality and understanding of players' needs has turned into an All-American success story. Marucci is the number one bat in the Big Leagues and makes wood and aluminum bats, batting gloves, protective gear, and other baseball and softball accessories. Star players like Albert Pujols, Chase Utley, David Ortiz, Jose Bautista, Andrew McCutchen, and Fran …read more
Yes, the Marucci Pro Founders' Series (MFGFS13001B) Camel First Base Mitt is going to be extremely light weight for the quality of leather that it has.
Unfortunately, pocket depth is hard to accurately measure and most observations are based upon opinion. Some players may feel that one glove's pocket is deep, but another player might feel it is shallow. If you were comparing this Marucci Pro Founders' Series (MFGFS13001B Camel First Base Mitt) to a Pro Preferred model of the same length, I believe that the pocket depth will be extremely similar.
At Marucci, they make their products the same way you play baseball: Hard work, determination, and attention to detail. This product is handcrafted. They are committed to never releasing a product before it meets the standard set forth by their wood bat. Their process is proven. The only way to achieve perfection is to accept nothing else. The first step in Marucci's process is to have Big Leaguers in their inner circle break in and critique the glove - knowing the extreme situations they would be put in. Players like Chase Utley allowed Marucci to comprehend what a player needs and looks for in an ideal fielding glove. The Marucci player advisory board was integral in testing, tweaking, and ultimately perfecting the glove line to have the feel and features that matter to players. Understanding this professional standard of perfection has allowed Marucci to handcraft a performance product that will last and maximize your game. Handcrafted, one by one, with the highest quality materials, for superior quality and feel, these gloves will require a gradual break-in period which provides a longer lasting form and shape. Professionally Inspired. Precision Crafted. Marucci: Honor the Game. The Marucci Pro Founders' Series is backed by a 100-Day Money Back Guarantee! Free Shipping!
Great products offered. I chatted using IM with a customer service rep to decide between a couple of mitts. He was very knowledgeable and made choosing simple. Thanks so much!
