ATK Natural & Hairy (3)

||- Tons of content.
- True to the hairy niche. But see BL.
- Zips, but see cons.
- A few, but limited, video DL options.
- Good search function as with all ATK sites.
- Soft and hardcore content separated. This is an excellent advantage if, like me, you are sick of toys and/or masturbation stuff.
- Models run the gamut from 18 to nearly elderly, and from gorgeous to homely.
- Newer vids are offered in one big chunk rather than the standard 3 minute slices.
- Pics can be viewed in a variety of sizes. This is good for people with slow connections.
||- Zipped sets broken into several bits. This is too much silliness and simply not worth the trouble.
- Pic size, on newer sets, seems to be app. 1000x1500 max. ATK has lagged in this area for a few years and it makes me wonder why.
- I would like to enable plain image links and have this work throughout my entire session without having to select that option for each set. This is an annoyance.
||I'm a huge fan of ATK and have been at the hairy site about four times, even though I'm not really into hair. As with all of this company's sites there is a spectacular amount of content on offer, and enlisting a long list of photographers keeps the material from devolving into a boring sameness which is the bane of a lot of other sites.
I have no problem with the "natural" niche at all, but this site borders on fetishism, as some of these models are so hairy they look simply preposterous. This being said they do keep the "scary hairy" models in a separate section.
I think the quality of the material needs to match the quantity of it at this point, but this is not happening.
The newest vid I downloaded (4/08) is 640x480, 1048 Kbps. It looks fine but not nearly as good as a great many other sites which are moving into HD. Some of the vids show higher bit rates - often significantly higher - but when played there is no significant increase in clarity or quality. I can't play the Quicktime vids (for some reason) but the file sizes for those are only a few megs larger than the WMV files, so I somehow doubt that the quality is much better.
As for pics, 1000x1500 is a good-sized pic but many sites are going much larger. The main strength here is the variety of photographers. Alexander B's material alone would be worth the price of admission. His sets are just stunning sometimes, even if the models aren't.
Recommended, but the quality could (should) be improved.
