Use

The Low-rise Leather Strap-on is a rustic, yet classy, take on the harness. It can be worn with or without clothes. If worn nude, the style of the harness allows easy access to the genitals to make for easy, fun, and versatile play. This harness is a great option for gender play and pegging. While it's fairly easy to remove, it takes a bit of time, so it might not be an option for couple who want to seamlessly take turns using the harness. For more quick, spontaneous play, there are other harness that fasten more quickly.

This harness is not very difficult to use, but is on the more expensive side. If new to harnesses, it is best to try a simpler, less expensive harness to see this type of play is for you. The Low-rise Leather Strap-on is also a great option for those who love leather. The craftsmanship is detailed, well thought, and sure to please material aficionados. This harness is better suited to the female anatomy considering the placement of the dildo. This harnesses is adjustable and, between the size options, should fit most people around the waist. Due to the material, this is a harness you don't want to use in the shower.

Material

The material is not vegan or vegetarian friendly, being made of real leather. It does have a smell, but it is an expected leather smell. It dissipates a bit over time and use, but never completely goes away. The leather is thick, but still contours comfortably to most body types. It has enough thickness to maintain the integrity and longevity of the harness. The waist part feels smooth, but is not as soft as the smaller, more adjustable straps that lock the O-ring in place.

The clasps and buckles of the harness are made of metal. The O-rings are standard and smooth, except for the small part where the two ends are welded together. The waist buckle and smaller buckles are made of metal. The They blend in well with the harness and work well. The snaps have a slight shine to them and are fairly standard. The Low-rise Leather Strap-on is not waterproof; water should be avoided during use.

Design / Craftsmanship

The Low-rise Leather Strap-on is crafted remarkably well. The waist portion is similar to a quality belt, with four straps coming off the waist. There are two toward the front and inside of the thighs. The other two are on either side of the behind. The positioning of the back straps will keep the straps from riding toward the center and ensures a comfortable fit. All the straps can be adjusted.

There are four snaps that keep the O-ring in place. Two of them are already snapped in when you first get the harness. The other two are installed by the user. These two snaps tend to come undone, especially when adjusting the harness and trying to fit a dildo. Once the dildo is fitted through the O-ring, the snaps do a better job of staying in place. However, even if one snap comes undone, it is barely noticed and the dildo stays in place. This is really the only faulty construction in this harness.

The Low-rise Leather Strap-on comes with 3 O-rings: a small, medium, and large. They should fit almost all types of dildos. If a larger or different O-ring is desired, it can be easily changed out. If getting a different O-ring, make sure it is not too thick. If it is a thick ring, the snaps may not be able to close properly.
    • Fits many size toys
    • Interchangeable o-ring
    • Stylish

Size / Fit

The Low-rise Leather Strap-on comes in two sizes: one with a 38" max waist and one with a 46" max waist. The loops in the belt allow the harness to be easily adjustable. If around a 38 inch waist, it is probably best to size up since leather is not a very giving material. It would also be a better choice if you decide to use the harness while wearing clothing. The leg straps are also adjustable, and are able to fit a variety of thigh sizes. The leg straps are similar to the ankle straps on certain shoes. If the O-ring is off center, check to see of the leg straps are evenly tightened.

The harness, given its name, does ride low. The buckle may dig into the skin of some body types in certain positions, but a different position will most likely remedy this. Also, if the user accumulates sweat, there can be some chafing around the thighs if the thigh straps are not secure. This would probably only happen after a very long session of play, though.
    • Adjustable
    • Will fit most body sizes and types

Performance

The Low-rise Leather Strap-on is comfortable to use, with or without clothing. Given the name "Low-rise," the dildo does sit lower than the average harness. If you're looking for a more realistic placement, this may not be a good option. This is also something to consider if you want to use this harness for standing positions.

It's important to note that this harness isn't the fastest to go on or off. It can take a couple of minutes to put on comfortably, even after initial placement of the other two straps. Those with nimbler fingers may have an easier time. Excited users may fumble at securing the O-ring in place. You may have to loosen the thigh straps to put it on and then tighten it. The easiest way to take off the harness is to unsnap two straps on one side of the O-ring. This will free one leg and help the harness fall off.

The Low-rise Leather Strap-on can tackle a variety of positions, but seems to perform best when penetrating from behind. The receiving partner can ride on top of the wearer comfortably, but note that the harness will probably acquire more fluids and debris. The design of the harness makes it present but not intrusive. The harness performs well and fairs well with rough use.
    • Comfortable during use
    • Difficult to put on

Care and Maintenance

The Low-rise Leather Strap-on can be cleaned by wiping it down with a damp cloth. To maintain the quality of the leather, refrain from using harsh chemicals or making the harness wet. When damp, always leave it to dry fully before storing. Be sure to keep it from sunlight to avoid discoloration and cracking. Leather conditioner can be used to keep the leather supple if it begins to feel dry.

When dry, the Low-rise Leather Strap-on should be stored in a dry and cool environment, such as the closet or under the bed.
    • Easy to store
    • Moderate maintenance

Packaging

The packaging is far from discreet. The front has a picture of a couple with a woman wearing the harness. The packaging is also a clear plastic pouch with a snap on the top. The harness comes with the largest ring snapped in it. The other two rings are at the bottom of the package. There are no instructions that come with this harness. The packaging can technically be used for storage, but plastic containers and packaging are not the best options for keeping leather in a cool environment.
    • Good for storage
    • Not discreet

Experience

When receiving this harness, we were skeptical but decided to go for it. It arrived in the mail when my housemate was home (my housemates know my activities on Eden, so I can freely open my shipments with no issue). When we opened it up, we were a little confused with all the straps and pieces it came with. While there are no instructions, getting this product ready for use is fairly intuitive.

I was wearing jeans while I put the harness on. I kept having trouble keeping two of the snaps from opening back up. This did lessen when a dildo was placed in the O-ring. Still, it can be a hassle craning your head down to see where the snap came undone. We did some preliminary testing on the durability of the harness and snaps by: pulling on the dildo, hitting the dildo, and thrusting into a masturbator. While wearing the harness, I: did jumping jacks, danced around, crouched and bended in many ways, and essentially leaned and moved in all the basic (and not so basic) angles used for sex positions. Again, the snaps hold up much better when the dildo is inserted, which is what matters.

I feel like the Myth busters with sex toys, but our testing continued. We took the harness off and pulled on the waist belt part just to feel the quality of the material. We also slightly twisted it and contorted it to see how the leather would respond. The material is far from invincible, but it is a good quality. It should stand the test of time. These tests were actually more brutal than when using it for real sexy time. The O-ring stayed in place for most of the time. A slight misalignment was quickly fixed. The O-ring didn't slip off the harness. We're very pleased with the Low-rise Leather Strap-on. If the snaps weren't annoying, it would be near perfect.
