The package (which was promptly eaten by my roommate's dog and thus not pictured) lists the following traits of the cuffs:
- Restricts free movement for extra excitement!
- Two ankle cuffs with a detachable metal chain with two karabiner hooks.
- Cuffs made of black leather, softly padded inside.
- Each approx. 6 cm wide, adjustable size with buckle between approx. 18 and 30 cm.
- Metal chain including karabiner approx. 60 cm long.
- Material: split leather/metal.
The metal chain was also a surprise. When seeing metal and not getting an in-depth description of the type of metal, I usually assume cheap aluminum and/or nickle. Instead, the chain is made of the same sturdy material used to make high end dog leashes for large and aggressive dogs (found this out through a friend of mine who has a large, aggressive breed of dog). I was impressed and do not have many worries about wearing these cuffs out any time soon.
I received these cuffs the day before the Anchorage Fetish Ball at Mad Myrnas. What a perfect event to try them out!
The cuffs were comfortable enough to wear the whole evening walking around the club and standing to watch various play scenes. I showed the cuffs off to friends and fellow kinksters at the event and everyone who saw them was impressed and wanting to know where to purchase a set of their own.
I have since Fetish Ball also worn them to a couple of smaller meet-up events that leather-gear was welcome at. They received the same interest and praise there as at the large event.
I have also worn them to sleep in. Their comfort and easy wear allowed me to sleep in them all night with no problems and woke without discomfort or any scratches to the leather from movement in my sleep.
Cleaning and Care
If there is no bootblack near you, then you can clean and condition your leather just as you would leather boots. In many cases all that is necessary to clean leather is a damp cloth or a store bought leather cleaner. For a deeper cleaning a leather soap or saddle soap can be used. This is followed by polishing with a good leather polish/conditioner.
The metal pieces will be fine when cleaning the leather. Simply make sure they are dried and wiped-down completely before storing.
