Bondara Lair Leather Collar and Arm Binder Restraint Review
By Pleasure Panel reviewer Miss Anna
I have been given the opportunity to review the Bondara Lair Leather Collar and Arm Binder Restraint by the Pleasure Panel, run by Cara Sutra. I have been intrigued by arm binders for some time however have never gotten around to trying one out. Here are my thoughts on this one:
The Bondara Lair Leather Collar and Arm Binder Restraint was sent to me without the usual packaging, so I cannot comment on that area however my first impressions upon receiving and unpacking the postage bag certainly did not disappoint. I am not entirely sure what I was expecting but the item received was so much more delicious than what I was hoping for. The collar and arm binder restraint was much bigger than I had pictured, made from heavy treated leather it was obvious that this item was made with quality in mind. The amount of leather and metal rings attached to this device had my mind racing instantly with the possibilities of having one of my submissives helplessly bound.
It is worth noting that upon arrival of the restraint I was impressed with the amount of product made to a high standard for a very reasonable stated price.
Look and ‘Feel’ of the Bondara Lair Leather Collar and Arm Binder Restraint
I found the visual appearance of the Bondara Lair Leather Collar and Arm Binder Restraint very appealing, being one who is quite ‘into’ the whole heavy BDSM scene I liked the look of the thick leather strung between buckles and rows of substantial metal rings. The restraint is sturdy, not only looking the part but living up to expectations of binding and restraint also.
I have to admit that the collar was a slight let down for myself, although the overall appearance was appealing I find the type of closure used to be a bit of a turn off ; the D ring and slit closure is popular amongst many BDSM restraints but I really would prefer a buckle, clip or other alterative that allows the collar to actually be fastened and secured opposed to just slotting over a D ring – I guess this could be further secured by using a padlock however this was not included.
The leather used to make the Bondara Lair Leather Collar and Arm Binder Restraint is certainly on the harsher side, it is just about soft enough to not be uncomfortable whilst in use however isn’t the ultra-soft velvety type. I do not see an issue with this personally as I enjoy inflicting the very real restraint experience upon my subjects although this may be something to consider if you are looking for a particular level of comfort in a piece.
The Bondara Lair Leather Collar and Arm Binder Restraint in use
I was thrilled to get the opportunity to try out this restraint shortly after arrival, after setting up the restraint by undoing the various arm straps and collar I tentatively placed the collar around my subs neck and was very pleased to see the D ring fastening held not only the collar closed but also the piece securely in place whilst I began fastening the multiple straps around my sub’s arms.
The Bondara Lair Leather Collar and Arm Binder Restraint is incredibly easy to get into place, each strap threads through a ring and secures around a section of the arm, there are 4 straps on each side of the binder which I found to be very effective, the top two straps on each arm are slightly bigger than the lower two to accommodate the natural taper in the arm, each strap has the ability to accommodate a verity of individuals given the amount of hole options provided.
Once all eight straps were tightly buckled and my submissives arms were securely placed behind his back, I topped off the look with a small padlock attached on the D ring of the collar to keep everything secure and add to the aesthetic, no doubt the D ring could be used for all sorts of scenarios from attaching a leash to aiding in bondage.
After the Bondara Lair Leather Collar and Arm Binder Restraint had been in place a little while I had to adjust slightly to avoid too much pressure being placed on the front of the neck from the arms pulling the binder downwards, I didn’t find this to be a problem as such, but it is certainly something to be aware of during play.
Overall, I think this is a great piece! Versatile, well made, incredibly pleasing on the eye and most of all serves its purpose perfectly, this would make a great addition for any restraint lover. I have a feeling this Bondara Lair Leather Collar and Arm Binder Restraint will become a ‘go to’ piece in my playroom for the foreseeable future.
