Use

I'm a sensory type of girl. Eroticism goes beyond the toys. It includes those little unmentionables like her scent, her strength, her stealth, and etc. This is the difference with BDSM aids. It's blasphemous to relate them with your garden variety adult sex toys. They tend to add to the experience rather than monopolize it. It is up to the user to channel its strength or prowess.

I watched my partner transform as she slipped on the Leather Hood, into a silent prominent being that shook me with fear from just her presence. It doesn't matter if you are a man or woman; this beautiful mask will instantly turn you into a silent beast and give you the power to intimidate from just a single stare.

My only suggestion is that if you are not comfortable wearing masks you should test this one out for comfort. Anything that pulls over your face can feel confining or borderline suffocating. After a romp around the bedroom, outhouse, dungeon, or abandoned building, you may start sweating profusely and breathing rapidly. Add to that a leather hood that you aren't use to, and things could go downhill fast.

Design / Craftsmanship / Material / Size / Fit

You have to love the folks at California Exotic Novelties. Every item I have received an item with their name on it, it has been more than comfortable. Although I won't have the honor of calling this one mine I still got to play around with it while Master was away.

The leather smell is intoxicating without being overpowering. Its like a light new car smell that you can't stop sniffing. However it does linger. So if you aren't into leathery scents you may want to pass this on to someone who can appreciate it.

The Leather Hood feels so very soft. Whether I pranced around with it on my face in front of my mirror or rubbed it against my naked flesh, I was wooed by its softness. The hood is ultra smooth and made from quality leather. I looked for a fault in the craftsmanship and couldn't find one.

The front of the hood is all leather while the back half of the hood is made of Lycra. Now when I took the hood out of the box I thought that it looked cheezy and I just knew it was going to be cheaply made. I could not have been more wrong. The stitching is perfectly done, no matter how much I pulled it didn't budge. I couldn't find any crooked stitching or signs of future shredding.

The Leather Hood, although it states it is for a man, fits a woman's head with easy. Surprisingly it fits snug and comfortable and the eye and mouth/nose holes lined up with the contour of my face. When you are shopping for hoods, it is not like shopping for clothes. For my masculine females you know what I am talking about. A woman can pull off a pair of mens jeans. But a hood his meant to fit the structure of your face. It can't be too bagging because it will turn and move during play, possibly covering up the breathing holes. This is not cool nor intended. So I was shocked to see that the hood fit not only myself, but also my partner who has a rather small head. It is roomy in the back of the hood towards the nape of the neck but it did not cause the hood to fit improperly.

The eye and mouth/nose holes are wide enough to line up with your features. You don't have to worry about the section between the eyes being too wide and blocking your vision and the nose hole fits perfectly on top of the tip of your nose and still provides enough room for your mouth. No breathing interference here!

These qualities are very important with hoods, especially leather ones. When choosing a hood, quality, comfort, and safety are very important and this Leather Hood meets all of these points with big ass stars!

(O yea...Did I mention that it looks sexy as hell? Well it does...even on me)
    • Fits comfortably
    • Leather
    • Mixed material

Performance

Out of the box I honestly thought the hood looked a bit cheap but once I saw it on, I fell in love. The great thing about this hood is that it is gender friendly. Although it is clearly marked for a man it fits a woman's head very nicely.

The Lycra back does not take away from the quality and aids in comfort when wearing for long periods of time. The nose and eye holes fit perfectly and don't restrict breathing or vision.

Another reviewer did mention restitching along the seams of where the leather and Lycra meet. I think this would be a good idea, especially if you use it often. However I saw no signs of possible fraying or loose thread when I inspected the hood.

For the price I think the Leather Hood is a great buy. Its a very simple yet well made design. The hood slips on and off with ease. And even though it looks like it has no shape when you first see it, once on you realize just how great it conforms to your face and head.

For beginners I suggest treading lightly. Wear the hood outside of playtime, get to know the material, and make sure the openings fit your face.
    • Comfortable during use
    • Easy to put on / use
    • Holds up to use well

Care and Maintenance

Leather masks tend to have a sealant on them and cleaners can break that finish down. I suggest simply wiping with a damp, not wet or soaked, cloth or dusting with a soft bristle dust brush.

For storage placing it on a wig head will help the mask keep its shape and do not stuff it in tight places or fold it up and throw it under junk or pile a bunch of crap on top of it. This mask is made of soft leather and leather has no sympathy for those who have poor care and maintenance habits. You also don't want to store it in any area that will subject it to intense heat or moisture.
    • Easy to clean
    • High maintenance

Packaging

The Leather Hood comes in a simple box. You could keep it in the box however, with leather products I like to store the items in a some-what open area so that it can breath and not get too wrinkled. I actual have a Styrofoam head that I keep mine on.

The box does not include care instructions which I would have liked to see for this type of item. For a beginner, it always helps to have simple care and storage instructions so that one knows the proper steps to maintain the integrity of the product.
    • Good for storage
    • Not discreet

Experience

I wanted her from the first moment I felt her breath against my neck. She said nothing but her stature spoke volumes. I begged from within for just a touch, a word, a gesture...anything. Instead I got silence. In her hand were my chains and on her face the leather hood. I can't get it out of my head. See for me it's all about bedroom presence and the leather hood morphed her into someone I didn't know. My beautiful sadistic butterfly how I love thee. The hood did something to her and I would endure its wrath repeatedly.
Follow-up commentary
The Leather hood has held up well retaining its shape and luster. I even used it in a few demonstrations and my participants loved it. I still recommend this one to any and everyone.
