Fade to Black Leather

This is an awesome mask for the money. It looks like a beginner piece, but don't let it fool you. It's versatile enough to work for both beginners and more advanced users. Fits both genders comfortably. Unless you're looking for a mask that provides total darkness, look no further than this one.

Pros:
Light, affordable, comfy for long term use and a wide variety of face sizes. Great classic look.
Cons:
Doesn't completely block light. (Lets in maybe 5-10%) Other than that, not a thing.

extremely useful review
The Fetish Fantasy Series Limited Edition Leather Mask by Pipedream is meant to be used in light BDSM and sensory deprivation play. I bought it as part of a kit deal Eden had, to be used with a pair of neoprene cuffs I had my eye on. A beginner to BDSM might choose this mask, but it is also just as useful to more experienced players who aren't looking for total darkness.

This mask caught my eye because of its sleek look, its affordable price tag (only $11), and the fact that it was made of leather, which I like the look, feel, and smell of very much. The mask itself is a little over 7" wide and about 2 1/2" deep over each eye. It's made of leather on the outside and velvet on the reverse side. I didn't see a single loose thread or a fault in any of the stitching on this piece. You hold the mask on your face with an elastic band, which is very pleasantly stretchy (about 13 1/2" long). This mask fit both my husband and me with ease. We both have pretty large heads (21"-25" range), so this was a pleasant surprise, especially for such a budget-friendly toy. The thing I like most about this mask is how comfortable it is to wear. I use it as both a sex toy and a sleep mask. Even though I wear it overnight, it never interferes with my sleep, and I often forget that I have it on.

I will point out that it doesn't completely block out light. (A little light comes in from the bottom of the mask, between the bottoms of the eye pieces and the edge of my nose.) If you're looking for complete sensory deprivation, you're better off with a hood or a wider, heavier mask. I found that this offering by Pipedream filled all our needs as a couple. I find the fact that it is very lightweight a definite plus.

The Fetish Fantasy Series mask comes in a very small rectangular box, about as high as two of my (small) cellphones laid end to end. The box features a black and white, film noir style picture of a man wearing the mask. He has a slight smirk on his handsome face. Underneath him, the box is labeled "Leather Love Mask", with the Pipedream logo at the very bottom. This is a classy box, if not entirely G rated. It is sturdier than it looks. I am able to simply stash the mask inside its original box when I am not wearing it. The box lives in the drawer of my bedside table during the day. Simplicity itself.

There were no care instructions on the package, and I would fault Pipedream somewhat for that. I would keep a small lint roller around to get stray hairs off the velvet side. Once in a while, you may want to use a damp cloth on the leather side, or a leather cleaner if you are especially concerned about preserving the integrity of that material. Really though, a damp cloth should be all you need most of the time. The simple cleaning regime is one of the reasons I love this mask. Caution: do not soak this mask or get it more than damp, because that could damage the leather quite a bit.
Experience
My husband and I used this during BDSM play, in conjunction with cuffs, floggers, dildos, and pretty much every other toy in our collection. I think the only limit on the scenarios you could use this mask in is your own imagination. We took turns wearing it. Both of us found it comfortable, and neither of us was bothered by the fact that a small amount of light came in from the bottom of the mask. Unless we both get into complete sensory deprivation, I can't imagine needing another mask to complete our collection. You could even use this to intensify the sensations of temperature play.

I need a lot of darkness in my bedroom to sleep deeply and comfortably, and the Fetish Fantasy Series Mask fit that need perfectly. I think you could even travel with it fairly easily. Just throw it in an empty cosmetic bag or something similar, if you're worried about being discreet, and you're on your way. I plan to bring the mask on a lot of trips in the future.

This is a five star product for me, but I give it four stars because I know it won't satisfy absolutely all audiences. Just 90% of them.
Follow-up commentary
I use this mask all the time, and I can't imagine stopping until the elastic on it wears out. (That shouldn't happen for quite a while.) I use it for sex and for sleeping. This is my go to sleep mask. It makes me feel sexy, and the smell of the leather turns me on even more than when I first got it. I stand behind everything I have said about the virtues of this mask. When the elastic wears out, I will buy another just like it. I hope that Eden still carries this one then. If they don't, I will be a very sad phoenix indeed.
