noir (nwär) adj. Suggestive of danger or violence. Hardly!

A very simple, inexpensive, no-frills set of wrist cuffs. They are easy to use, and suitable for light play. They aren't fancy, they aren't suitable for long wear or heavy play, but will work well for light play or trying it out.

Use

This is a set of wrist cuffs suitable for light bondage play and moderately adjustable for what I guess to be small to average size wrists. My wrist measures 5 1/2" and the cuff is very snug, almost uncomfortably so on the tightest snap, and so loose it would fall off on the loosest.

They will fit very snuggly on my tiny ankles (7 1/2") on the loosest setting, though the positioning of the D-ring and small size make these cuffs unsuitable as ankle restraints. I think they would be suitable for beginners and most light players, though heavier players or those interested in heavy restraint or suspension should seek more suitable cuffs. They are very plain, but the D-ring would probably give the point away in vanilla circles so they aren't terribly discreet.

Design / Craftsmanship / Material / Size / Fit

The are made of synthetic material designed to look like leather on the outside, and lined with a fake velvet-like material on the inside.

The snaps are silver colored metal with a silver colored metal d-ring attached with a nylon strip.

snaps



This cuff is meant for light play and will not last long in heavy use. The velvet seems to be shedding a bit already without even having been used aside from trying them on. These will likely not last long if they are used with any regularity. They feel cheap and light weight. There is no noticeable odor to them. I think they will probably fit most female users, but are not likely to fit all male users. They have 2 snaps so it is possible to set them at 3 different sizes.

Performance

I expected this to be a cheaply made cuff suitable for light bondage play and in that, I was not disappointed. They aren't terribly versatile or comfortable. They will chafe or rub during any kind of extended use. The D- Ring only on one side of the cuff is a bit limiting. But for what they are and the price, it's not a bad product.

Care and Maintenance

The outside of the cuff would be easy to wipe clean. It may be important to note that neither side of these cuffs is nonporous or able to really be sanitized. But unless they are drawing blood, sanitation is unlikely to be a major concern. These will require no special care. However, it is likely that if the interior lining gets dirty, cleaning will probably destroy the fabric. These cuffs might be an item you toss if they get very dirty.

Packaging

Packaging is utilitarian. They arrive wrapped around a cardboard hang-tag. Nothing exciting.

Personal comments

These won't change your life. They're not for heavy players. But if you want a decent set of beginner cuffs without a lot of frills and with a low price tag, these might suffice. Expect to upgrade if you decide bondage is something you're really into.

Experience

They're really too snug for my 5 1/2" wrists on the smallest setting and the medium setting would allow me to slip or wiggle out of them if I pulled. On the loosest setting, of course, they would just fall right off. They aren't very comfortable to wear and would chafe or rub uncomfortably after a while.
Follow-up commentary
These cuffs will never see the light of day. I should probably just throw them away but I'm too much of a packrat. They don't fit, rub uncomfortably, are cheaply made and just not useful to me at all. Moving on to bigger and better things.
