LOVE IT!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

We've been using the longer version of this leash, which was too long and tended to drag on the ground during our bike rides. The shorter version is great, much more manageable, just the right amount of stretch. I only wish it had a reflective stripe sewn into it like the matching collar.

Awesome!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

My dog is a MAJOR puller (Husky) and this leash is great! I had the older version, but he pulled it so hard he broke the plastic clip and chased the squirrels and deer for a couple hours. Ruffwear replaced my leash with the new version, which is great! The adjustable clip is very easy to slide, but can be a little tricky to undo. The leash is very sturdy. Overall, very happy with this purchase.

Very Good

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Overall an excellent product. Well made and does exactly what it says it does. Just very confused why it only has one metal "loop" hook instead of two. Sometimes you want it as a waist belt and then you want it as a leash and you have to screw with the closure to switch back and forth. Then you have to go through the resizing process all over again...

OK

I maybe should have bought the shorter cersion. too much slack in it when not running.

great for hiking and running

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

We replaced our old version of this leash with the new version. So far seems much stronger than the old version (seems like it will retain it's shape better). We have the large but maybe should have gone with the medium. Our dogs are tall and so are we (husband is 6'3" and I am 5'9") but I worry that I will trip over the slack when my dog is heeling. Husband doesn't have this problem, and no problem when my dog is "roaming: which is kind of the point. Great for hiking and running- the extra stretch means it is harder for your dog to pull you over if there is a sudden change in terrain or pace. Like the new buckle feature, is very easy to use and adjust.

Dog's Name: Jenga

Date of Review: 3/12/2014

We kick up our paws in: Arizona

My canine companion(s): Doberman (80lb)

Best hiking leash EVER!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

We are avid hikers and backpackers. Jenga only uses a leash on busy trails and around The neighborhood. The waist loop is very convenient while on daily runs and feels very strong. I'm 6'3" 210lb and it fits with room to spare. The main reason for purchasing this leash is while hiking I hate getting pulled when Jenga needs to jump up or off ledges and rocks. The extra few feet of stretch this leash has allows her to safely get over obstacles without pulling me or her getting yanked mid leap. The handhold close to the collar is great for tight control or passing people on the trails. Only downfall is if your dog pulls you will not have very much control because or the stretch. Overall best leash I've ever owned.

Great leash!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I have used retractable leashes and long lines for years and hoped for a better option. This leash is the answer!! I am only sorry I didn't order the longer leash (but will be doing ordering it soon). Great leash that is very well made. I definitely recommend it.

Practical

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Happy to see that they have changed the black nylon attachment to a solid steel hook. We have 2 dogs and we broke 2 of the old version. The black nylon adjustment loop broke on 2 out of 2. We will buy the new version for this summer hiking vacations. Just love the Ruffwear products.

PERFECT

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I too have the old version with the plastic buckle but holy heck, as a service dog user, it's amazing. Truly. I love the traffic handle at the end for a quick grab and use that when in very tight quarters, it's just long enough to hold onto that in addition to the handle on my balance harness, but I absolutely love the waist worn attachment.

Best leash i have ever owned

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I had the old leash with the plastic...and it broke within a couple of months. However I emailed Ruffwear and had a new leash within a couple of days with no additional fees. This company has the best equipment for dogs I could ever hope for. Can't wait to see what they can come up with in the future

My canine companion(s): Golden Retriever/German Shepard mix

Hands free all the way

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I have the old version so that is all I can speak about. That being said...I LOVE it. I don't know why anyone would want to hold a leash in their hands after being able to have it around their waist. I use mine to run and walk my boy and it's great. The shorter loop for close control is great too. Four stars only because I have the old clasp closure and not the new hook one.
