Visionary

Is it a compliment to this toy to say that I often forget that I'm even wearing it? I think it is. The comfortable, soft way it sits on my face and keeps me from seeing what's going on around me is a huge bonus. It's easy to use, easy to clean and it's a definite keeper for our toy box.

Use

This blindfold is incredibly easy to use. More so than any other blindfold I've owned -- the faux leather front is large enough to completely cover the eyes and the strap is just a simple bit of stretchy elastic. This would fit most women and men and would be good for beginners or advanced users.

Design / Craftsmanship / Material / Size / Fit

I have to say that this doesn't look like much at first. Some leather-like material with some elastic. But the good thing about blindfolds is that you don't spend your 'fun' time looking at them -- you spend your fun time wearing them. And this is the most comfortable blindfold I've worn in a very long time.

Bonus points for:
-Soft, velvety inside. It rests on your face without cutting into the skin at all.
-Elastic stretchband with NO hardware. Almost all blindfolds/collars/gags get caught in my long hair in one way or another. This one has nothing that will catch at all. Not when you put it on, not while you're wearing it, not when you take it off. Perfect.
-Cutting out all of the sights and light. Occasionally, a little light sneaks through at the bottom, but for the most part, these work well for sensory deprivation.

The one bad point is that the fake leather is a little... it's not that it's not well-made, it's just that it's not as durable as real leather. The bottom of one of the sides got bent up during play, and now it's permanently creased like cardboard. Also, the elastic might stretch over time and become too loose to hold properly, but so far it's holding up just fine.
    • Fits comfortably
    • Mixed material
    • Vegan

Performance

As mentioned, this works really well for cutting out vision and light. Sensory deprivation at its finest. This is especially true because there's nothing on the blindfold itself to distract -- the inside is a soft velvety material that doesn't draw attention to itself, the strap is subtle, the leather-like material doesn't scratch or cut. It's very lightweight and comfortable.

Again, it's not the prettiest looking thing, but once it's on, it does exactly what it's supposed to.
    • Comfortable during use
    • Easy to put on / use

Experience

I like this blindfold much more than I expected. I wish it was prettier -- not sure that it's all that flattering -- but it's lightweight, comfortable, and it does its job. I would gladly wear it for hours while being teased, tortured and tossed about.
Follow-up commentary
Yep, still yummy. Great sensory deprivation tool, VERY comfortable. I keep it on the top of the dresser, so that it's always handy.
