The nylon trim is an almost fluorescent pale green - so vivid it is actually startling. It is a break from the typical black/red/purple colours often seen on this type of piece, but not everyone is going to like it. The best part about it is that it glows in a black light, which could add a lot of fun to a dungeon play scene.
Surprisingly, the leather has almost no odour. This is a very pleasant change from some of the leather equipment we've reviewed. The clips are a little on the small side, and not as sturdy as I would prefer, but they do the job. The leather is not strengthened where it is cut away for looping over to contain the clips. This is an obvious point of wear, and it is the failure point over time, we suspect.
The Zado does exactly what it says on the tin, and it does it well. We've used it several times for some spontaneous light bondage play and enjoyed it. You can get it on and off quickly, and with no fumbling. It is comfortable to wear and doesn't chafe.
We are both disabled, and any restraint system with fiddly catches, or that holds me in an awkward position that would cause me pain of the bad kind, is a no-no. The Zado is not a problem in this area.
Since this is mostly leather, it should be cleaned with a damp cloth or leather cleaner. Avoid immersing in water. For storage, it can be hung in a closet or placed in a drawer. Make sure that it is stored in a dry location, as leather is vulnerable to mildew.
This comes in a thin cardboard box, with a photo of a topless model wearing the restraints. The cardboard is too flimsy to be useful for storage. Care and storage instructions are included.
This is a good, inexpensive restraint accessory which gives a striking look. It's disabled friendly, which I appreciate more than I can say. Hog ties and the like are simply not an option for me. If it were available in colour choices, I would have gone for red instead of yellow, but that's a personal preference and does not affect the rating. It's not sturdy enough to be considered a toy for life, but it's inexpensive enough to bring kinky fun while it lasts.
Due to the clips not being as large and sturdy as we would like, and the lack of reinforcement of the leather, we deducted one point to give this toy a four star rating.
