Bondage and Vibrators

Had a pair of boys over on the weekend and after tying the two of them together back-to-back, Outdoorsie and I decided to double team the other boy with some sleeping bag bondage in the Stoic Somnus, a ton of rope, and two Hitachi magic wands.

Full Zipper Hooded Jackets

The full zip up hood jackets seem to be getting more and more popular these days (despite its complete impracticality outside of breath play) so I thought I'd take some time to discuss a few that I've found online.  The one thing all these coats seem to have in common is a high price point!

DUVETICA
Duvetica's brand is pretty much synonymous with the full zipper jacket design because of the ever-so-popular Dionisio jacket or vest (or even the less popular Morges jacket).  It plays on fetishists love of shiny fabrics with a smooth polyamide material but has a ridiculously high price tag - not quite as high as say, a Moncler, but you're not getting much bang for your nine hundred bucks is all.



KJUS
The Norweigen manufacturer KJUS offers a number of down filled jackets with all-around-zippers like the Spin and the Backflip that offer a more main stream legitimacy to this style of jacket with a more reasonable price point; unfortunately due to the brand originating from Europe picking one of these jackets up in North America will still cost you around six hundred dollars.



PARKASITE
It shouldn't be any surprise that Parkasite is on this list.  The company isn't even shy about the fact that its products are designed and sold to perverts so its no surprise they have a few products with a zip up hood, like you can buy a down suit with no face openings whatsoever! Like most Parkasite products you can have them costumized to your liking but the Joltu features the fully closed zipper hood most prominently.  Of course if downsuits are more your thing you can get a zip closed arctic hood on the Glossuit as an addition feature.



OCO PURE
I'm not even sure if the OCO Pure brand is still around, this always looked like a small upstart to me and from what I can tell they haven't been active since prior to 2010 but were pretty big in fetish circles for a while for really pioneering the sexy down jackets with a complete zipper marketed directly to fetishist.



AI RIDERS ON THE STORM
Or if you're looking for something a bit different (where you can still see and breath) you can always check out the AI Riders on the Storm jackets with built in goggles and ventilation.  They now have a whole line of different jackets ranging from down jackets, fur trimmed parkas, and vests so your not stuck with just one single style... unless you don't want goggles in your hood in which case you should probably just buy a normal jacket.


OTHER
Lastly there's always the cheap option of getting something from China or Hong Kong, you can find lots of these on eBay.  It won't cost you much but the down fill can be questionable, and when I say that I don't mean that there's no guarantee of the advertised fill rating, I mean it could be anything from Chinese duck, chicken feathers, or sawdust stuffed into your coat.  You get what you pay for!

Freddillon2

I do appreciate some bondage in down jackets and Freddillon2's flickr photostream has plenty of rope, duct tape, zip ties, gags, and gear to look through.  Just a heads up that there's some cross dressing bondage on display on Freddillon's profile, so if that's not your thing just keep walking.  I'm not very big on gender play myself; not that there's anything morally wrong with it, it just doesn't get me horny is all.  For me bondage is bondage for bondages' sake!

Wish List, PHD Designs - Redux

Way back in 2011 I discussed in some length my love for gear made by PHD Designs.  Unlike most competitors PHD's catalogue had pretty much stayed the same year after year so there was always the chance that the next time I went to England I'd be able to pick up any of the jackets I had been drooling over all this time.  However it looks like for 2014 there's been some rather drastic redesigns to PHD Design's catalogue and it doesn't look like I'll ever be able to get that Garwhal or Delta Belay that I had been obsessing over (the Hispar appears to be unchanged).

Why didn't I just buy one in the last three years then? It's not like I haven't purchased two downsuits, six jackets, and a sleeping bag in that time.  Well, shipping oversees is a huge pain in the ass and I always thought I'd be making a trip to England sooner rather than later.  Later is hopefully looking like first half of 2015 now, so yes, with any luck I'll be crossing the pond within a year and can hopefully pick up a PHD jacket.  Finally.  Although now my options have somewhat changed.


Instead of the Delta Belay I'd probably be looking at the Rondoy; I had thought about possibly looking at the Denali as another option but Peter was quick to point out that the jacket looks almost identical to my Mountain Hardwear Sub Zero SL.  So it looks like when I go to UK it will be between the Rondoy and the Hispar.  Since they're both around the same price it'll be a hard choice to make, especially since the Canadian Dollar has taken a dive and either of these jackets would likely cost me close to $800.  Yikes! I can buy some really great gear for $800.

Reclining Bondage

Peter and I have done bondage in my la-z-boy a few times now but it rarely ends up photographed for the blog, usually when Peter does it to me it ensures I'll be tied up for a long time while he plays video games or marathons through a series in netflix (I'm usually hooded for most of this duration).

I had the clever idea to do this to Outdoorsie while he was over and had him geared up in the Marmot 8000M down pants, the North Face Baltoro, and a strait jacket.  While he was pretty content with his bondage for photographs he immediately shared with me his displeasure for the gear, his position, and the heat and shortly later he asked to be released.  In retrospect I should have just gagged him.

Hoodie & Down Vest Combo

Apparently Nike has developed an extra-insulated reversible hoodie by lining it with an 800-fill down vest.  So whether you want to wear a hoodie for around town whilst packing some extra insulation without all the puff OR rocking a down vest for all to see is your choice to make.


However its price tag of $350 has it competing with some very high end down vests (Canada Goose sells there for less so that's a problem) and even is more expensive than a lot of down jackets! Lastly I can't imagine how easy it'd be to wash a hoodie lined with a sewn in down filled vest anyway, washing down fill anything is just a pain in the ass at the best of times.

I'll give points to Nike for creativity but I don't know how well this marriage between hoodie and down gear was thought out, and that price point definitely needs some work.

Sleeping on the couch

I'm always happy to offer couch space out to house guests, but that doesn't mean they'll be spending the night in luxury, far from it.  Outdoorsie got to sweat it out on my couch for a while over the weekend in his blue Selk Bag, yes, Outdoorsie went out and got a Selk Bag a few days after meeting me for the first time.  Clearly I'm influencing this boys future fetishes a tad.







Back in 2010 Peter and I picked up a pair of Selk Bags and though there's been several revisions to the design over the years for the most part they remain unchanged.  I'm still not a huge fan of the design, I think they could do massive improvements to the fabric used to be more sleeping bag like.  Not to mention the lack of a down-fill option available, though they had a short lived down bag at one point its all but faded into obscurity today.  The good news is they've made it easier to get access to someone's penis in it, so that's always an improvement.
