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 Top Rope™ Collar or Chain Reaction™ Collar for the complete set up.

Love this leash!

My husband and I both love this leash! So easy to use and well made! We have a 55lb and a 65lb dog. Neither have any issues with it. I love that the length can be adjusted and also love that there is a wrist handle or can be converted for around your waist for hiking. We haven’t had an issue with the latch that some people mention. I think it’s really well made! The reflective stripe is not obvious in normal light which is nice, feels like normal fabric but really shines in the dark! We would totally recommend this leash to anyone!

Great leash

I still love the older leash, but the new one with the plastic buckles are nice.

Great product, worth the buy

I love the slackline leash, it’s light weight but feels durable nonetheless. The clip mechanism is easy to operate and feels secure. The adjustable length is easy to use and provides adequate length in its longest configuration while running. The padded handle only works when it’s cinched completely, so if you’re like me and leave it adjusted for using hands free around the waist it’s not padded for hand use but the leash is not rough or too narrow so it won’t hurt your hand if your dog pulls regardless. Configuring it as a belt is comfortable for the most part, though it can become tight or uncomfortable if your dog pulls or gets wrapped around you on the move. Not a huge inconvenience considering it’s a flexible option and not a purpose built harness system like some of ruff wears other products. It’s our go to leash now and works great with both our ruff ware collar and front range harness. Love it, would recommend it even if you don’t run with your pup, as it’s nice to go hands free at times, or for use to quickly clip your K9 while having lunch or otherwise temporarily keeping him put while you tend to other things.

Great leash

I love this leash. I keep it extended for For my short dogs that I walk and I extend it or put it around my waist for the tall dogs that I walk. I like the color the feel and the quality.
