No more fumbling through fur and slobber.

a great collar. The addition of a milled aluminium leash point is perfect. properly adjusted the collar balances so that the leash point is always up. I have since changed collars, but not due to any failing of this collar. In fact I scavenged the buckle and leash attachment to make a waist belt/ running leash. I have had two Huskies pulling against the buckle and it held fast. I would say this is the best collar on the market in this style.
OK but does have some problem
The collar worked well for a few weeks then it came lose hardly can with stand a dog who is very active.
I bought this collar for my dog to replace the Ruffwear Hoopie. If my dog was determined, he could break through the buckle on the Hoopie. The metal buckle on this collar is much more secure.
Now that's a happy dog!
Great Dog Collar
I absolutely love this collar. My roommate had a tendency to hook my dog's leash to her tags and I ended up losing quite a few sets of tags. The easy to find V-ring is perfect to prevent that. I haven't had any issues with durability and she has gone on plenty of adventures in this collar over the past year. Definitely love it!
ruffwear, not so rough
First, let me say that backcountry is AWESOME. i had this collar for about a month now and it held up fine; however, after yet another indicent where the collar slipped over my 90-lb dogs head in a too-close encounter, i had to send it back. backcounty gladly accepted my return. While the construction of the collar generally held up to the heavy strain my dog put on it, the tightening components of the collar (plastic pieces) would loosen during each walk. In the end, just not a safe collar for my dog. Actually, the $5-$10 hoopie dog collars with plastic buckles proved more effective.
Runs in the material
Quality buckle, sub-par material
I wanted a really strong buckle collar for my dog who broke the plastic buckle on the Ruffwear Hoopie collar after 8 months of use. The metal buckle is great--it's almost seatbelt like--very sturdy. I like that the leash attachment ring is adjustable as well, though the idea that the buckle is weighted in such a way as to keep the ring pointed upward (given it's positioned directly across from the buckle) when walking is exaggerated. The biggest problem, however, with this collar is that when my dog scratches her neck, the force of her nails frays the material of the collar, despite the fact that I keep her nails trimmed and ground smooth. The fraying isn't as bad as users, including myself, experience with Ruffwear's Doubleback collar, but I don't expect this collar to last a full year. For the price, I expected better quality material.
