Vendor: Mr S Leather
The sturdy bridle leather body of this collar is slightly curveted. On the ends it is already a hefty 80mm wide but then increases to a whopping 102mm in the middle. However, the bottom goes even lower to press against the sternum, allowing for a shallow recess where the chin goes. In front of the recess there is a half-oval bridle leather flap attached onto the body with snap buttons. So you can decide how severe the fettering will be.
The 51mm wide belt for closing the collar is riveted onto the body. When you want to lock the collar around the sub’s neck, the maximum circumference is 45cm. If you “just” want to close it around the neck, the circumference goes up to 51cm. The belt is closed with a roller buckle and can be locked using a pin. The lock shackle hole has a diameter of 4mm so pad locks with up to 3.5mm shackle wire strength can be used to lock this collar. Below the roller buckle a 60x64mm piece of oil-tanned leather protects potential hair or skin getting caught when fastening the belt. The belt also covers the small riveted leather loop which house three 27.5mm wide and 15mm tall stainless steel D-rings. There is one in the middle and one below each jaw side. There is not D-ring on the back so if you want to attach a leash, you have to get creative.
To protect the skin from chafing even under pressure with a sub who tries to move his head a lot, both the body and the chin plate is piped for a smooth and rounded edge. For more comfort and to avoid direct skin with the rivets both body and chin plate is lined with soft garment leather. The leather is sewed and glued onto the body; the edge is not deburred. Being made from the soft, signature Mr S garment leather, the “rough” edge doesn’t cause any issues. However, it would have looked and felt a bit more finished if even this edge would have been piped.
Playing with the Heavy Duty Posture Collar
The name of the toy says it all: It is a heavy duty collar to keep the sub’s head in place. Due to not being padded, it is a very strict posture collar though not the strictest in my collection. But certainly the most play ready and versatile. Push the front against the sub’s Adam’s apple, wrap the collar around it and close ONE wide belt. Many other collars either have two belts making it a little bit cumbersome or just one thin (20 – 30mm wide) one which compromised the rigidity. Mr S really found a sweet spot here.
Despite not being padded, it can be worn over extended periods of time. But especially when using the chin plate, take extra care when taking it off. When a limb or joint is forced in one position – especially unnatural ones – over extended periods of time, it will go stiff. This in combination with the head being rather heavy requires a lot of attention and support when taking the collar off the sub’s neck. Otherwise something similar to whiplash can happen.
A nice feature is the detachable chin plate. Especially body builders with bull necks struggle with the chin support on other posture collars. Being able to take it off is a huge feature. The tallness between 80mm and 100mm is plenty enough to limit the head movement. This is even truer when the sub has a very pronounced jaw line.
As always with restraints and especially collars, being able to lock it adds a high psychological momentum. Not being able to take it off while not being able to move your head is a huge mind fuck! In the last year I have seen locking pins from cheaper manufacturer only having a shackle hole diameter of 3mm or even less. It is very good that Mr S doesn’t cut corners and still sticks to the “industry” standard so you can keep using your key-alike lock set.
The three D-rings in the front are nifty anchor points for all kinds of bondage situations. Because compared to other, thinner collars the post collar distributes the force more evenly on the neck, it is a good toy for fettering the neck and keeping the boy even more in position. When doing this, the surrounding bondage layout should be tight. Otherwise there is a chance of the subs strangling himself when he can move too much.
While there is not D-ring at the back for K9 play, you can of course attach a leash in the front and lead your slave around. For deviant K9 play, attach bondage mitts to the lateral D-rings so your dog has to crawl on his elbows (don’t forget elbow protectors in this setup!). A top friend of mine use short leashes on the sides to have handles when face fucking his subs.
