The Ruffwear Slackline Leash is an adjustable leash that's multi-functional: the handle can be hand-held or waist-worn; the length can be fully extended for relaxed walks, or shortened for more control when needed. An ergonomic metal slider allows for easy one-handed length adjustment on the go - from 3.5 ft to 6 ft. Comfortable and convenient with a padded handle and accessory loop, the Slackline Leash also offers low-light visibility with integrated reflectivity.

Dog's Name: Kepler

Date of Review: 6/27/2014

We kick up our paws in: Northern Virginia

My canine companion(s): German Shorthaired Pointer


Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

We've had the pack for a few days now. Kepler is my running buddy, so I eased him into it. The first day, I just put the empty pack on him. Then I added some water. Now he's carrying GPS, phone, water, etc. He doesn't love it when I first put it on. He resists for about a minute. Then he forgets it's there and he's off running. I've been watching to see if there is any odd wear/tear on him and the pack. So far, I can't identify any. It seems to fit him really well. FYI, he's a 55 lb GSP and a medium is a perfect fit.

Versatile & Reflective

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

NOTE: I have last year's model which features a buckle clip on the handle loop instead of this new design. This is a great leash for everyday use, running/hiking, and for quickly tying up a dog around a tree at a campsite. I love that it has a reflective strip on it, though I'd really like to see the reflective stuff on BOTH sides of the leash instead of just one. There's a bit of padding on the beginning of the handle, but it doesn't get clammy when used as a waist belt. For the fashion-oriented, you can get a Hoopie Collar in the same color & style, which makes a pretty neat pair. As previously stated, I wish the reflective strip was on BOTH sides of the leash. Also, it would be nice if two lengths were offered: Even with a pretty small waist (29"), I keep stepping on the back legs of my dog while we're running, because the leash is just a tad short. Same thing with finding small enough trees to tie her to in camp. It would be great if there was a slightly longer option to accommodate healthier waistlines and larger tree-trunk postings.

My canine companion(s): yellow lab


Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

The Slackline leash works perfectly for runs anywhere from 3-6 miles for my lab! I have it set for constant heel when worn at my waist, but I like that I could adjust it to give her some extra room to take lead if we're on a narrow trail.

Would you recommend this product?.: No

See review of the crag collar--I didn't like the clasp/closure on the handle. The older style buckle was much easier/quicker to attach to a tree/pole, whatever.

Love it

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I love the slackline leash. It is the perfect length for me to run with my dog at a heel by my side, but then I can extend it to let him run in front when we get to the single track trails. The leash has some give in it too, slightly elastic, making it comfortable and not jarring as you run.

This is our go to leash for work and play and has proved very versatile. The adjustability is great and enables shortening for one handed walks. It still has the length for structured activities and even leash corrections. We can lengthen for on leash ski travel and shorten it up for lift lines and when we need the dogs close by side. The clip on strap enables attaching to an object or your waist. The talon clip is great for quick one handed attachment or release, especially with the Top Rope Collar. My only critique is that there should be a few more of the little sliding black pieces that keep the two leash sections matched up and from getting twisted. Other wise that is only an issue when at less than full length. The reflective stripe is great for night activities and from keeping it from getting lost if dropped.

Great leash, love the adjustability, and the clip is wonderful for when I need to attach her to the assistance handle in the disabled stall. :)

My favorite leash

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I needed a waist-worn leash because my dog pulls so hard my shoulders get tired well before he does. Clipped around the waist, I can run along behind him until he's tuckered and not have any upper body tension. It's also nice to have the option to tether him to something if I need to be away from him for a moment. I chose this one over the Flat-Out leash for the adjustable length -- it's nice to have the versatility of keeping him close in busier areas. The Talon Clip is industrial strength, and the webbing seems far superior to other leashes I've had. Overall, it's a brilliant, multitasking leash and I couldn't be happier with it.
