Best leash for backpacking

This leash relaced my carabiner/knot a long/ridgeline combo for attaching to my backpack. The roamer is perfect length. The weight savings is the biggest factor. Short lead grab is perfect for grabbing Zettie when approaching fellow hikers. Claw is nice and quick for attaching. Attach the buckle to either my hip belt or lower shoulder strap. Quick, easy and secure. Grand slam Ruffwear

Great leash for dogs that pull

I love how this leash removes tension when your dog pulls or gets excited for a moment and jumps. I recommend this leash for people who run with their dogs as well. It’s sturdy but light enough to make running with your dog enjoyable.

Right amount of stretch.

This leash is great for runs. The longer version would probably be better for skiing, snowshoeing, or hiking (anything with trekking poles).

So far so good

I dont have much time using it but from the testing I have done so far is as advertised. Quality seems good as well. I'm using this for a 165 mile section of the AT this summer so check back with me then .

Great for jogging, hiking, and for ***** training

Excellent leash. I use it for ***** training my puppy (keeping her next to me at all times, hands free) and for jogging. The stretchy part prevents me from being ******, and same for my dog.
