Luxury in Leather

This collar is fantastic for any level bondage, and is comfortable enough to wear long term. The only thing to be mindful of is your neck can get hot because the leather traps the heat.

Use

This collar is made of leather and has metal rings. It has a buckle closure that has six settings, which means it can be as tight as 14", or as loose as 18". The leather is fairly stiff but it is not uncomfortable. My sub wore it for about an hour while out and about, and it was never uncomfortable, but it is decently thick in width at 2", so it can get a little hot after a while. It is a little difficult to look down or around; the mobility of the neck is compromised due to the thickness of the collar. It basically hits the chin or the side of the face and won't allow movement as well as you would normally.

This can be worn as fetish wear out and about, or it can be used as an extremely sturdy collar in the bedroom. It has three O-rings, and a triangular ring that can be used as a leash attachment. I recommend using the O-rings for chain/rope/any other attachment for tying down...or up.

Design / Craftsmanship / Material / Size / Fit

The collar is very sturdy and well crafted. I feel like the leather is nice and thick, while being pliable and comfortable. It fits well, and it fits a decent variety. I feel that it is relatively decent sized; it does not require experience to use, it fits well, and can be adjusted to be looser if you feel like starting out with very little asphyxiation play. I personally don't like using collars for breath-play, but that's just me personally. It can be used to put enough pressure on the throat though that there is a little bit of the threat of breath play. I like this about it.

As far as special features go, it has three O-rings, which provide plenty of places to tie. My previous collars have only had one.

It is 20.5" long, and 2" wide. It is decently thick leather, so at first it takes a little bending work to get it used to fit. It feels like it will soften up with time, the leather just needs to be broken in.

Performance

It has no seams and it is not scratchy at all. The stitching is well done and it holds up well. Sometimes you'll notice collars coming undone in places; this one doesn't have that problem. I felt like it met our needs, and it was comfortable for us. It is not discreet as to what it is, as it is clearly a more hardcore-looking collar.

My only complaint is that after long-term wear, it does get very hot. Your neck becomes extremely sweaty, but as is the way with any collar that is leather and thick enough to hold in body heat.

On the bright side, this collar is lockable. The buckle has a metal part that goes through and has a loop for a little lock to latch on. This way, the collar can't be removed without the keyholder. It does not come with a lock, however, so you will have to buy your own.
    • Easy to put on / use
    • Holds up to use well

Care and Maintenance

Being leather, it basically can be wiped off or polished if it starts to lose its shine. You don't want to get anything nasty on it because it can be hard to get out later. It doesn't have any problems with storage, and can be stored pretty much anywhere. I didn't keep the packaging, I just buckle it and leave it in the drawer.

Packaging

There is no information on the package, not that you need it for a collar. But the the package is basically clear packaging. There's no need to keep it, because the collar doesn't rub off onto anything. (I've known some to rub their colors off.)

Personal comments

This collar is basically the first real collar my pet and I have used that is ours. We have made some collars out of old belts and other things, and have borrowed some for use, but this is our first collar. We both think it's great. I get plenty of loops to tie her to things and immobilize her, and she feels comfortable wearing it. We like the fact that it has a lock loop, as well as the extra O-rings for tying to multiple things. There is a triangular loop in the back that I generally use for leashing, while the others are more useful for rope art and true bondage.
Follow-up commentary
This collar has broken in nicely, which has helped because the original condition of the leather was rather rigid. I've began to love this one even more with time. Now that it's fully broken in the leather is a lot more pliable and soft, and more comfortable for wear. It still has the issue of longterm wear making it all hot and getting sweaty, but overall I think it's still worth it. It's holding up well with no wear and tear showing either!
