Vendor: Anubis Pack
I have treated myself to these restraints as a Christmas gift because I wanted a second pair of restraints and I wanted locking ones. Since a lot of my friends who are in the market for leather restraints or locking restraints this review is one by public demand. If you want a review of one of my toys, just send me a mail.
The set consists of a pair of wrist restraints, a pair of ankle restraints, a pair if thigh restraints and a collar which makes it the perfect combination for puppy play I believe. All restraints are made out of leather and come in black. It is their genuine design and they are made in a factory in Malaysia exclusively for the Anubis Pack and their distributors.
I have to say, these are one of the most complex and most interestingly constructed padded restraints I have come across. The padding is stored inside a cushion of soft leather with the edges folded around so there are no sharp edges or any irritations due to skin rubbing on the seam. This cushion is sewed to a thick, sturdy piece of leather. Interestingly the guys decided not to add the closing strap onto the top of the body but the body and cushion leather runs out into the strap with 2.5cm of hole spacing. On top of the body runs a strap which holds the D-rings (two for ankle and wrist restraints, three for the collar and a lavish four for the thigh restraints) and the buckle in place. All buckles are lockable but sadly not roll buckles. The restraints come in one size fits (really) all:
- Collar restraints: 31cm to 47cm circumference
- Wrist restraints: 10cm to 27cm circumference
- Thigh restraints: 40cm to 57cm circumference
- Ankle restraints: 14cm to 31cm circumference
Playing with them
These restraints feel SOLID! Due to the construction with up to six layers of leather they are stiffer than other restraints and will take a longer period to be broken in. Because the buckles don’t have a roll tightening the restraints can be a bit of an effort especially in the breaking-in period. But due to the soft and thick padding you can apply a fairly big amount of force when putting them on without hurting the sub. Through the unique strap construction and the one size fits all approach there is a fairly large unpadded area when using the holes for the wider setting. This is something I haven’t experienced with other restraints. But that being said I your sub has to be REALLY beefy and big in order to be forced to use these holes.
Once they have been put onto your sub they perform like every leather restraints but they really start to shine when it come to elaborate bondage scenes. Through the large number of D-rings you have many points you can attach to a bed, to a frame or to each other. A nice touch is that the strap running over the D-rings is not only hold down by rivets but seam is holding down the D-ring even tighter. I am skeptical how much of the pulling force is distributed to the rivets and thus how long the seam will withstand the pulling. But for now I like how little play the D-ring has. Because the seams on the lower side are well embedded inside the padding and the fold is sewed under the body of the restraints the chance of irritations during long term bondage is very low. The locking buckles don’t really add anything physical to the play but for many subs not being able to just pull the strap loose is a great mindfuck. You can lock the restraints using a standard 20mm pad lock.
