The Ruffwear Slackline Leash is an adjustable-length leash that can be hand-held or waist-worn. The 6 to 3.5-foot (1.8 to 1.1 m) adjustable length can be fully extended for relaxed walks, or shortened for more control as needed. An ergonomic metal slider allows for easy one-handed length adjustment on the go.

The Ruffwear-designed Talon Clip™ provides a strong and secure attachment, the handle is padded for comfort, and a convenient accessory loop is included for pick up bags or small clip-on items. Integrated reflectivity keeps people and dogs visible in low-light conditions.

Available in four color options. Try our matching Crag™ Collar, Top Rope™ Collar or Chain Reaction™ Collar for the complete set up.

Love the adjustable feature as

Love the adjustable feature as well as the clip handle. While hiking you can clip it around your waist or to a pack. When you're out and about you can shorten the leash to keep my big malamute from getting in everyone's way. The reflective material only seems to be reflective on one side and the latch style is not the greatest seems that it could come open if tugged at on the right angle.

Solid lightweight leash

The leash is just fine overall - the material is thin yet strong and all the attachments are solid. My only complaint is the lack of any elastic in the leash leads to a jarring pull if my dog is at the end of the leash. I've got a competing running leash which doesn't have the ability to shorten the length, but it does have an elastic/bungee section which makes a big difference in comfort.

slackfline leash

Pretty good - for running with a large dog I wish it was a little longer. I love that it’s not a bungee leash - it’s easier to keep a handle on my dog when necessary. She’s a 90 lb rhodesian ridgeback and prone to lunging at deer or strangers on the trail. However - if your leash was even just a foot longer, it would make it easier to run together without us interrupting each other’s stride.

Best leash

I have a service dog and though she’s great at walking right next to me it’s nice to be completely hands free and never have to worry... absolutely in love!
