Light Hood with open chin exclusive by
Prices incl. VAT plus shipping costs
- Order number: MRL529.s
Our light full masks will fit any head snugly like a second skin.
They are sewn from particularly soft and slightly elastic aniline leather (see additional information below), creating a very flattering appearance.
The leather will fit snugly on any head, clearly showing its shape below. The tighter the mask is worn, the more obvious this effect will be.
This particular version offers a very generous opening, allowing the wearer to open their mouth wide, and to perform particular tasks that way.
Should keeping the mouth open prove challenging for them, our mouth retractors( s. Art.-No. MGM111 or MGM112) can be used for assistance.
As a matter of principle, our masks have their eyes sewn shut, in order to keep the wearer focused on their tasks. This leads to a marked sensory impairment, specifically, rendering the wearer completely blind.
Use of a gag can enhance the resulting helplessness nicely – assuming the mouth is not needed for other things at the time.
We decided to keep our mask rather short, keeping the neck and throat mostly uncovered. This way it can easily be combined with our neck corset or other accessories.
Available in four sizes.
Refer to the table below to find your size.

Advice for easy putting-on of mask:
First open the lacing all the way to the top.
As soon as the mask has been pulled over the head, do not immediately pull the cords tight at the top. Instead evenly pull the cords all the way down without using too much force. After this, slowly tighten from top to bottom until the mask is at the desired tightness.
This way of tightening is necessary in order to guarantee the mask’s perfect fit. If you start by pulling the upper part very tight, the entire mask may ride up and create the impression of not fitting.
What does Aniline Leather mean?
Do not let the material’s name confuse you. Historically, this type of leather has been dyed using aniline-based dyes, but today it refers to a particular natural, high-quality leather.
You can find more detailed information here:
Aniline leather is tanned and subsequently dyed using entirely water-soluble dyes. In contrast to nappa leather, no additional pigment layer is applied, as this would hide small imperfections. This means that aniline leather can only be made from skins that have no wounds or marks whatsoever, which results in only five out of 100 being of sufficient quality.
The result of this is aniline leather being particularly pleasant, optically as well as haptically. Also it is slightly elastic to the pull in one direction. This is an advantage when being used for our light full-head masks, as it makes them particularly tight and snug-fitting, almost like a rubber mask.
As its surface lacks a pigment layer, aniline leather is not waterproof. You should avoid spilling food or drink on the mask.
To clean only wipe the mask down with a damp cloth. Do not use grease or oil.
If the leather should lose some of its softness after a while, simply massage it using your hands. It will quickly become as soft and supple as new.
Please measure the following areas with a tape measure. Alternatively you can use a thread or cord which after marking can be measured with a ruler.
The most important measurement is the circumference of head: tip of chin - back of head
