About as good as it gets right there, I think Oxy makes some of the best tool bags available.

When I got my Occidentals I used the same oil that I use to break in my baseball gloves, which can be found at any sporting goods store. Still took like 2 years for them to fit like a glove.
I believe there are a few other threads on here about different methods of breaking in your bags
