Mine is the only Aslan product that I ever got that bled everytime I washed it or stained my skin blue green when I sweat, so try something else!!! Try their Jaguar. It's soft garment leather rather than latigo leather.

Since The Commando first came on the market in 2004 this is the first report I have received of color bleed. The leather we use use for the Commando does not bleed when it becomes wet, we try to keep our leather supply consistent but on rare occasion due to shortages our supplier will ship a slightly different product. The harness you have may have been produced with an alternate batch of leather which was less resistant to color bleed. You can send your harness directly to us and we will replace it with a new Commando harness.

Please send your harness to our PO box listed on the ASLAN website.

What a nice thing to stumble across. Great example why EF (and not just Carrie at Aslan) totally rocks Victoria.

Honest query & problem from a customer...equally rapid & perfect response from the maker monitoring one of the most interesting review communities out there.

Really makes it seem like we all are doing our high wire stuff with the best safety unknown below us.

Haven't heard of this (color bleeding) happening again, so I think it was a one-time error.

If Victoria loves the Double Up, then why doesn't EF carry it? I've heard many people sing its praises.

Maybe it's just me, but I don't understand why these harnesses are made of leather. They are beautiful, but are they actually functional? The thought of my gorgeous leather harness getting grungy from sex strains frightens me. How can I keep it clean without ruining the leather?

Mine never bled, but it does have lines on it (like it was cut?) it came like that, they're very straight lines... are those on y'alls?

I just purchased the commando harness and nave noticed that it sheds like crazy. When I insert my favorite vixskin toy it is immediately covered in tiny black specs of leather from the harness. Any suggestions?

I use the Vegan and it doesn't bleed at all when wet/shed.

HI the leather we use comes from a cowhide which is not always consistent in thickness or density.There may be the odd piece that escapes our detection.The flawed piece may shed a small amount of material until it has been worn a few times It will become smoother over time. But it should not bleed.

Our guarantee covers this type of situation. If you feel a strap needs replacing send it to us and we will replace it.

I love the minimal design, as more skin will be exposed, but I am worried: will those narrow leather straps chaff?

I can't tell you how reassured I am to see a manufacturer so willing to stand behind their product. I'm waiting for my first Aslan product in the mail. Thanks for the customer service!

I love my white jaguar. They have some great sales on this website and the customer service is awesome by both EF and by Aslan.
