Making use of the observations from my "What makes a good play collar?" article, I'm now able to offer my own version sporting all key features to make a premium utility leather collar.

With years of BDSM experience these collars were made to solve several problems typical collars have. One of the biggest additions is hook and loop fastener to make applying the collar easier and to prevent the splitting effect during rough play. Splitting refers to the strap overlap in the buckle area and with heavy movement the ends can drift vertically creating the split. Application wise it helps a lot to get the starting desired tightness and then can take your time tightening the buckle without worrying about the collar falling off. There is just enough hook and loop to tackle these problems while staying out of sight when the collar is actually on, thus keeping a sexy classic look.

 

Garment leather is used to make the liner which acts as padding for the interior and edges. There is just enough to make them comfortable without over doing it on padding which tends to result in a bulky look. The liner also makes it so there is no metal directly touching the skin, thus much less maintenance or allergy concerns. 

   

For other small details all edges are beveled / smoothed and I make sure to include keepers so the slack can be properly secured and everything looks sleek and proper. I've only been able to find .75" locking buckles in silver, but normal roller buckles are still able to be locked with a small lock.

Approx 2.125" wide with lining, with main strap using .75" buckle and D-rings, 2"ish of main size adjustment zone. So far this seems to be a great size to be big enough for rough play, but not over-doing it where uncomfortable like a posture collar. The main D-ring is screw on style so ring can be swapped or taken out. This is a cool feature to let us use all kinds of O-ring variety or mix it up with none at all. So far the biggest I've been able to find are bullrings which give a great standout look and make for an easy pull handle to boot.
