Look what the cat dragged in!

Meow, indeed. This collar is super, super sexy and looks good on pretty much everyone. It's very sturdy, comfortable, and a total show stopper in the bedroom. Make your lover become your lovely pet when you place this collar on them. This is another wonderful quality Aslan Leather product. No wonder why I keep coming back for more.

Aslan Leather's lovely Black Cat collar is super shiny, sleek, and sexy. It's a great way to make a commanding fashion statement in and out of the bedroom. This collar will look great on just about any submissive out there, or anyone else who appreciated a hot, sexy collar.

This collar can be used for pure looks alone. It makes a nice compliment to costumes and fetish wear because of the gorgeous, super shiny vinyl. The design makes it perfect for both men and women. You can also use this collar in the bedroom to keep your partner under your command. The large O-ring in the front is a great place to hook a leash, or to chain the collar to other things like a set of cuffs. Take your lover on a sexy walk around the bedroom with this one.

There isn't any skill level for this sexy piece of bondage gear. It'll fit just about anyone because of how adjustable it is. If you're a beginner and you think collars are sexy, go ahead and get this one! If you're a super advanced player, you'll love Aslan's amazing products. It's also completely vegan, so none of our furry friends were harmed in making this wonderful collar.

Design / Craftsmanship / Material / Size / Fit

This collar makes a statement when worn. It's incredibly gorgeous. The black vinyl is deliciously shiny and the round metal studs are the ultimate finishing touch. This collar is just as sexy on me as it is my male lover. My favorite thing about it is that it matches some of the other gear I have, as well as my favorite boots. The vinyl has a slight smell, but it fades with time. The scent isn't really one that's off-putting, and is one I actually kinda like (cause I'm freaky like that).

This collar is made up of two different straps. The wider strap is about 1 1/2" wide and 16" long, making this collar a perfect size without being too wide, thin, or bulky. The skinner top strap is 19 1/2" long. This strap is secured to the lower strap by 10 round metal studs. These studs do go all the way through the collar and come out on the inside. On the inside, they are smooth and look like they do on the outside. This does not impede wear or make the collar uncomfortable at all. The collar can adjust to fit a neck between 14" and 18". There are adjustment holes in the strap spaced about 3/4" apart. When the collar is adjusted to anything below 16", the overlap of wider part of the collar fits snugly and comfortably on the inside by the wearer's neck.

Now let's talk about the hardware on this thing for a second. I mentioned the studs above. The closure on this collar is a Q-hook (you know, the ones on belts and stuff). It's not a locking hook like a lot of the other Aslan gear, so it can be removed easily. Right by this hook there is a metal D-ring for securing the end of the adjustment strap, but it can also be used to attach a leash from behind. On the fron of the collar there is a large triangular ring which is attached underneath the smaller strap. This triangular ring sticks out about 1". Attached to it is an O-ring that is about 1 1/2" across. It makes a lovely jingly noise if you wiggle the collar around. A leash can be attached to either of these rings.

Aslan products are known for their high quality and durability. This collar is sewn together pretty securely. The only issue I've seen with it is that the ends aren't completely sewn up. You have a stitch that runs across the top and bottom of the collar, but nothing on the ends of the larger or thinner strap. I haven't had this collar for very long, but it does look like the threads at the end are a little loose. My collar isn't perfectly smooth, either. The small and large straps seem to be a little off so that there's a small wrinkle in the large strap and a bump in the small strap. Now, it's not something that one can easily see, and it doesn't really impede use at all, but I'm super, super picky about things like that, so it drives me nuts.

Performance

When it comes to what a collar is supposed to be like, this one has all the bases covered. It's easy to put on and take off. When putting it on, you rarely need a second set of hands. It's easy to feel where the holes are and to get them lined up with the clasp, and to tuck the extra strap into the D-ring. It's comfortable to wear, as well. You can yank, pull, tug, or whatever else you desire, and it's not coming off, or choking the daylights out of the wearer. The edges are rounded so they don't cut into the wearer's neck or leave unsightly marks. It's sturdy, but it does offer a lot of support to the wearer's neck. The hardware is very secure and it would take a whole hell of a lot of force to bend the thick metal O-ring in the front.

Now, it does get hot and sweaty under it after a while, and the vinyl does stick a little, but not so much that it's distracting. If you want to wear this collar for an extended period of time, you could always throw a little powder on underneath it to keep it a bit drier.

This collar totally met my expectations as all Aslan products have at this point. It's gorgeous. I can wear it outside the bedroom without looking like a crazy girl. It's super sexy. It does it's job incredibly well.

Care and Maintenance

Vinyl is a little easier to care for than other materials out there, leather especially. If it does need a cleaning, wipe it down with a slightly damp cloth, and give it another pass with a dry one and you're good to go. Obviously, you shouldn't submerge it or let it get too wet.

Aslan always suggests that you should cover your hardware with clear nail-polish to prefent it from tarnishing.

Another wonderful thing about Aslan's products is that they have a lifetime guaratnee. If your product is defective or breaks durning normal use, Aslan will repair it or send you a replacement. How cool is that? That's a major reason I buy from them.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store
Follow-up commentary
I wish there was an option to say "I'm still neutral about it." Every time I take it out I get all irritated by the wrinkle in it. It's nice to have if the situation ever calls for it, but I haven't met a good sub lately and it's a bit too big for my neck. Shame, shame, shame.

    Oh. I wasn't aware this wasn't locking. Thank you for that information (also the review, of course!), as otherwise I would have bought it and felt really silly for the error. Sad since it's so pretty; none of the nice fem-looking collars seem to lock. *sigh*
