Zado's collar is made from a solid piece of leather, folded in half and sewn the whole way around. Another 3/4 inch piece of leather is woven through the collar, only visible at the D-rings and at each end, where the collar is secured with a metal buckle. The adjustable collar has six buckle placements, and can fit a range of neck sizes from 35 to 46 cm (about 13.5 to 18 inches).
The leather is sturdy and strong, and looks like it can take quite a beating. Even with tugging and leash pulling, it should last for some time.
The leather is shiny and not too stiff, which is nice if you plan on keeping your slave in it for an extended period of time. It's smooth to the touch, and the leather smell is not very strong, but noticeable if you hold it to your nose.
Even with its studded design of *star, square, star, square, star*, it is masculine enough for either sex, and makes any sub look and feel sexy and owned.
This collar fits well, and is a great accessory to have in a D/s dynamic or any BDSM scene. It's comfortable for play and long periods of wearing. It's thick enough that you won't forget you're wearing it, but small enough that it doesn't get in the way.
The side D-rings are sturdy and withstand the pull of a leash or, my favorite, the strain of attaching cuffs to them. The decorative studs add appeal and do not make the collar look cheap or cliche.
Store this leather collar in a dry place, but make sure it is has air to "breathe." If it gets dirty, wipe it with a damp cloth. If it gets wet or sweaty, use a soft cloth to wipe off the excess liquid and let it air dry.
