It Is As It Is Called. Nothing More.

This is as it says it is, a classic lined blindfold. It keeps out the light well and isn't restricting. The only downside is that it has a heavy leather smell and looks a bit odd on the wearer.

Use

Great for sensory play and just a blindfold for sleep, Sparticus's Lined Classic Blindfold is great. For bdsm, this is great for anyone who wants to get into sensory play and just for sleep, this is great for anyone who likes total darkness sleeping. Beginners and pros, this is great for everyone.

Note: It is advised that anyone who has glaucoma not wear blindfolds as it can exacerbate the situation.

Design / Craftsmanship / Material / Size / Fit

The first thing I noticed taking these out of the bag was the potent smell of what smelled like a starch mixture that turned into a leather smell upon putting this to my nose. The smell of this would not go away and was extremely irksome.



What I did like about this was that it was adjustable and not elastic so it's not always too tight. This was the first time the default "setting" fit me perfectly too. I really liked the lining of this as it kept my face from getting irritated and itchy. The way the eye covering is a bit bigger than a normal blindfold and the way it molds to facial features keeps most light out.

For practicality purposes, the shape of this is perfect, but aesthetics wise I felt this looked a bit odd and on someone looks a bit insect like, but that's just a trade-off that has to happen since it can't look good and keep the wearer in the dark.

Performance

This works really well, unlike blindfolds that only cover the eyes and don't extend to the cheeks, this keeps out most light. It isn't completely dark as there are areas where there is a slight sliver of light peeking in, but that's it. When on snugly, this doesn't slip and this is as sturdy as I expect leather to be.

I loved both using this for a bit of play as well as sleeping with this on.
    • Comfortable during use
    • Easy to put on / use

Care and Maintenance

As this product is leather, it shouldn't be exposed to water. The lining however can be wiped down with a wet cloth. You can protect the leather better by using those creams on it to moisturize or waterproof it.

Packaging

I really hate when the packaging that is shown on the site and what comes is different. Sometimes I really look forward to the packaging; thank god I wasn't this time.

This came in a simple plastic bag with some tags on it. It looks like it came straight from the manufacturer and not from even the brand itself. It basically looks like a wholesale item you ship to a brand to package.

Follow-up commentary
This feels a bit stiff and doesn't feel comfortable after a while. While I do like that it is a bit loose, the stiffness of the material, even with the lining, does make it very uncomfortable to lie down on after a while. The stiffness also makes this slip around a lot easier when wearing it for a long time, especially if you move it a lot and the velcro wears.
