Sweet Simplicity

In a similar design to ASLAN's Commando harness, the Simple Vegan harness is a hypoallergenic (all plastic and nylon) version that's incredibly sturdy and pretty comfortable. It keeps attachments in place and doesn't loosen up during play. Since it fits such a wide range of bodies, the Simple Vegan harness is just what the doctor ordered for vegans and those with nickel allergies alike.

Use

For those wanting a lower-priced harness that is almost identical to ASLAN's expertly designed Commando harness, the Simple Vegan harness has made its debut on Edenfantasys in both black and pink. It's a double-strap harness with an interchangeable o-ring and snaps for a more custom fit. Double-strap harnesses are excellent for people who like to be played with during wear because the genital and butt areas are completely exposed, unlike panty or thong style harnesses. Because the o-ring is interchangeable, the Simple Vegan harness can accommodate any girth or size of attachment with minimal effort.

Material

The Simple Vegan harness is made of a set of thick nylon straps that are sturdy, but flexible enough to move with the body. The nylon is slick and and finished at the edges, which can at times become scratchy. Nylon has no scent whatsoever and is easily worn under clothing if adjusted properly. Every piece of hardware on the harness is plastic, so this is a hypoallergenic harness (which is great for people with nickel allergies since most other harness have nickel hardware). The o-ring that the harness comes with is a standard rubber o-ring.

Design / Craftsmanship

There are three main straps that make up the harness: the hip strap and each of the two thigh straps. The design of this harness reminds me a lot of the Commando harness — in fact, the design could very well be the same. There are a few minor differences, though. Aside from the obvious being the material, the Commando harness's hip strap adjusts by two buckles, whereas the Simple Vegan harness adjusts all over by slide buckles. In addition to that, the Commando harness can be changed into a g-strap harness; the Simple Vegan cannot. The Simple Vegan harness is a double-strap harness; it is not a hybrid design like the Commando harnesses.

On the front of the hip strap is ASLAN's logo stitched on. While it's not the most aesthetically pleasing thing ever, I don't personally find it unattractive. If you dislike it, you can always take a seam-ripper to it. Around the o-ring are plastic snaps — two on the top straps, and one on the bottom straps — that allow for adjustment to bring your attachment higher or lower. This is definitely helpful for optimal adjustment for different body types.

While all of the straps have a 1/16" thickness, the width of the hip strap is 1" while the width of the thigh straps is 3/4". At the ends of the straps is a singed finish, which keeps the straps from fraying.

Size / Fit

Since it's an incredibly adjustable harness, most people should be able to wear it. I wear a size 28" in men's pants, and I still had 14 1/2" left over on one side of the hips and 15" on the other. That leaves you with around 60" to play with. As for the straps that go around the thighs, I had about a foot left over on each of those. I'm about 5' 1", so people with longer torsos should be able to wear the harness comfortably as well.

Performance

Simple to put on and even easier to take off, the harness does not get in the way of play with any uncomfortable moments of waiting. I do recommend adjusting it before any play though, so that minimal adjustments will need to be made right before intercourse. It will not need to be adjusted during, as the straps are firm enough that they stay put and do not stretch.

Even though it's made of nylon and has an incredibly simple design (as its name implies), the harness does hold up more weighty attachments without problem. The only problem with the harness is that, due to the material, irritation may easily occur and it can cause friction burn. That's not the most fun thing with a harness, especially when it's lining the genitals. This didn't happen all of the time, but in certain positions (wearer lying down and being ridden, being one), it does need to be moved slightly to keep this from occurring.

    • Holds toys very well

Care and Maintenance

To clean nylon, simply wipe it down with a soapy cloth and dry it as much as possible before hanging it to dry. You can technically put this in the washer and dryer, but I wouldn't — I'd rather hand wash it and then let it drip dry. For storage, it can basically be kept anywhere without incurring ill effects. I keep mine in a box with my prosthetics, but keeping it in a drawer or hanging it up is just fine, too. Utilizing the pouch that it comes with is also a substantial storage method. Nylon requires minimal maintenance, which makes it both low cost and low maintenance.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

The harness comes in its own polyester drawstring pouch. It's black with pink lettering on the front that says, "simple/by ASLAN." Honestly a bit too cutesy for my taste, but it works to keep the harness from tangling with my other harnesses. There was also a tag attached that had ASLAN's regular cleaning guidelines for leather (they didn't change it for the nylon harness, I presume) and their lifetime guarantee.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Good for storage
    • Minimal

Personal comments

At first, I thought that this harness was going to be similar to the Bare as You Dare harness, but it really is a ton more substantial and well-made. But could I expect any less from ASLAN? They're truly an excellent company. I'm not sure if this particular piece has a lifetime guarantee, but if it's kept proper care of, it should be fine and it should stand up to quite a few years of play.

I liked how it fit me, but the extra lengths of straps did become frustrating. I cut them down a bit after measuring for the review and burned the edges for a clean finish.

    @Sangsara: I can understand that. I think that in comparison to other similar harnesses, it is a good price, especially for those who do not like the upkeep of leather or who have nickel allergies. And also, because it's made by ASLAN, the quality is great, so that's another reason why it has the high price tag.

    I didn't expect any less than a great review from you, Sir.

    Even though I have the Jaguar now (that I love), I feel like this model could be needed as there is a growing demand for larger toys in my harness... If I could only find an O-ring that is only slightly larger than a 2", I'm afraid that having an O-ring that is too snug on a Vixskin toy could damage it. Unless I'm just too overprotective of my precious toys.

    Besides, I feel that this could fit a male anatomy so that it could be used on me for hmmmm...

    I'm really glad I got my hands on that one. If you find a leather equivalent, let me know. I'll keep my eyes open.
