The most versatile leash out there!
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Thank you to Backcountry.com and Ruffwear for hand-selecting me to review this piece of gear for the benefit of the backcountry.com community.

This is a GREAT leash. I have the Burnt Orange color and it is bright and as expected from the pictures. I use this leash for quick walks around the neighborhood or for a leash run with the dogs. The ability to attach this leash around my waist one day, then have a smaller handle the next makes it very versatile.

The leash has several great features--
*The Talon Clip is easy to use, very secure.
*Adjustable. Not only is the length of the leash adjustable from the distal portion, the handle is adjustable as well. This is an added benefit as I make frequent dog walk trips to the local hardware store and can shorten up the leash on the fly to keep the dogs close, then lengthen it back out for optimal sniffing on the way home.
*Awesome handle. The handle is padded and very comfortable. There is also a release on the handle to make it easy to put around your waist, or attach to a tree, bike rack, etc. when you need to run in to grab your coffee while on your morning walk.
*Durable but lightweight. I would feel safe with this leash even if Neko or Cash saw something they wanted to chase across the street. The leash is durable enough I could easily keep them safe without the added weight of a more burly leash.

I could not find a downside to this leash. It comes in several bright, fun colors, is durable, reflective, easy to use and adjustable. I would highly recommend it.

Never disappoints!

We have been using these collars for years for our dogs and love them!

We have a 75 lbs Husky mutt named Cash with a 17 inch neck and a 40 lbs Australian Shepherd named Neko with a 16 inch neck. The medium fits both of them perfectly.

The silicone silencer is brilliant, but keep in mind it works best if you only have 2 tags. We have a ID tag, rabies tag and county license tag so it helps a bit with with the jingling, but I wish it came with 2 silencers.
There are always fun bright colors to choose from that work well for both male and female dogs.

The 2 different attachments on this collar make a lot of sense--one for the ID tags, and another to attach a leash. Before we started using these collars, we had a collar with a single attachment point. Our friend accidentally hooked the leash to the small, weak ID tag loop and when Cash lunged for a squirrel pulled the loop right off and was free. Luckily is was not near a street, but I now think the 2 attachments points is a much safer system.

The collar is very light and thin. Initially thought it would not be as durable as prior collars we have used, but to my surprise it holds up well.

Overall these are great collars. All collars get smelly over time, but at the reasonable price, we can afford to change them out when the smell gets out of control and what dog doesn’t want to mix it up once and awhile???

First day out with the RPK pants--couple feet of fresh snow and actively snowing at Solitude. Medium fit me perfectly (6'0, 175#, 33 x 32 pant typically). Definitely a bit stiff, but seemed to soften a bit by the end of the day. Kept me completely dry and warm. Large burly cuffs give good protection.

Great material, medium a perfect fit (6'0, 175#). Plenty of room to layer, but still a trim cut. Kept me warm and dry with a couple feet of fresh and persistent snow today at Solitude. I suspect it will continue to soften with more wear, but feels even more supple after today's use. Only complaint is that it seemed to ride up on occasion--minor.
