In order to create a tight and confining bondage experience these mitts have two distinct parts which are covered by one large piece of leather. The upper 2/3 is thickly padded. The padding covers a leather-lined pouch. It is so short and tight that when putting the mitts on the sub is forced to form a fist. The lower 1/3 is a wide cuff which covers the entire wrist. There is a wide strap of Velcro going down all the way to the pouch for opening the cuff wide, allowing for easy entry and tight closing of the cuff. Onto this part a belt is riveted. Between the rivets there are two welded D-rings per mitt. The belt is closed with a roller buckle and can be locked with locking posts. The mitts come with a pair of keyed alike locks.
Playing with it
The first thing you notice when you put these mitts on is the tightness. If you don’t form a fist while putting them on the locking belt won’t close. With other restraints people with slim fists can wiggle out despite the belts being tightly closed. But with these mitts the opening of the pouch is so tight that one the fist is locked in place there is no getting out creating an inescapable bondage experience. The tightness comes with a price though: The mitts are one size fits all. If the sub has larger hands (glove size 8 ½ and up) or his hands don’t collapse much he will have really problems getting these mitts on. The hard clinging of the large hands can cause circulation problems over time despite the mitts being quite comfortable.
Through the forced fist forming and the thick padding these mitts effectively render the sub’s hands useless. He might be able to somehow hold a large, not to heavy object like a gym bottle between his hands so he can take of his hydration on his own. But that is as good as it is going to get. With the hands being rendered useless this just leave the feet and mouth as a means to escape from these mitts. I put one of my testees in them who is a real escape artists but he could not open the restraints so the locking posts are really just a nice psychological touch, adding to the felt bondage experience. Your sub won’t get out of them anyway.
The thick padding – especially at the front – and the loss of the power to grab things made these mitts quite popular with the pet players in my test panel. Like animals most the absence of thumbs force the pet to rely on his handler to grab things. The padding is thickest at the top so the mitts are good for walking on all fours. The leather is a bit stiffer, more dressed and treated than I wanted it to be on high quality bondage gear; I prefer a more natural feel with a rich leather scent. But this sturdier kind of leather treatment is good when playing outside like at street fairs when rough surfaces like tarmac or gravel would damage softer leather.
