If you are someone who would rather not use animal products, finding BDSM gear of any sort that gives you the same feel as leather but is conscious of your choices is difficult at best. The Stockroom has presented an answer and I'd have to say they are pretty good! What am I talking about? I'm talking about Vondage, Stockroom's new Vegan-friendly bondage gear. I was offered the chance to look them over and try them out myself and I jumped at the chance! (Stay tuned for Thursday's post if you want a chance to try out Vondage for yourself!

Vondage’s vegan microfiber is firm, stain-resistant, and breathes easily so that players have maximum control for the dominant and maximum comfort for the submissive. The leather alternative gear is available in Stockroom's classic designs: locking/buckling collar, wrist, and ankle cuffs, chain leash with handle, polyfleece-lined blindfold, and hog-tie. Note if you have a nickel allergy you will want to avoid these items.

Let me tell you a bit about my experience with the pieces I received.

Buckling Cuffs for Wrist and Ankle

The texture of the material that these are made from feel great. It's really comfortable for long term wear and they look sexy as hell. The straps are a double wrap, in that you wrap them around your limb once before you buckle it. This gives me a sense of security and extra restriction. They are so comfortable that they have become my go to cuffs for my bedtime (overnight) wear. The construction is what I'd expect from all of my Stockroom gear; durable and high quality. These cuffs will hold up to quite a lot of tugging and pulling which is one of my favorite things to do in bondage.

One thing that was a bit annoying is that the strap was extra long and after buckling it I was left with a 4 inch bit of strap with nowhere to tuck it. I tried folding it in half and tucking it under the buckle but it didn't stay during play. It might also have been more annoying for me because I was using them for long term wear, to sleep in, than for play. You can cut the straps, and I'd suggest doing so if the restraints are only being used for one person, but these are also a convenient thing to use on all of your partners and if they all have different size wrists and ankles you'll have to adapt. After I trimmed the excess I was very pleased with them and I expect they will get a lot of use for nights to come.

Sizing:

The wrist cuffs are 2" wide and will fit wrists measuring 5½" to 8" around. Includes nickel-plated D-rings and a locking buckle.

The ankle cuffs are 2½" wide and fit ankles from 6" to 12½". Includes nickel-plated D-rings and a locking buckle.

Price:

Wrist: $31.00

 Ankle $51.00

 

Blindfold

I LOVE this blindfold. For the longest time, I can't even tell you how long, I have been looking for a comfortable blindfold. I wanted one that didn't pinch my nose, press too hard on my eyes and didn't dry out my skin and cause peeling after wearing it and this one fits the bill. The material is lovely, it feels like leather on the outside but is lined with fleece on the inside. It goes on with an elastic band which is great too. Any submissives with long hair can attest, there's nothing more irritating than getting your hair tangled in a blindfold's buckle and that can totally ruin a good buzz! Not so with this one as it goes right on, and right off. I was in love from the first moment.

KnyghtMare loves this blindfold as well because it's easy to put on and he doesn't have to fiddle with buckles or clasps. He's made it part of his primary use toy bag. That's quite the compliment!

I think you'll like it too!

Hog Tie

The hog tie is well built and has 4 sturdy nickel-plated clips so you can go from free to bound in no time flat!  If you aren't into rope this is the perfect solution to the classic hog tie and looks sexy with the Vondage cuffs for a complete look.

I'm not super flexible so we used the hog tie set from the front instead of the traditional behind the back form and it still performed well and gave KnyghtMare all the access he wanted.

Price: $33.00

 

Safety, Care & Usage of Vondage Gear:
