OllyDog Mt. Tam Hands-Free Dog Leash

rated 0.5 of 5 stars *****Updated****OllyDog responded to this issue and is taking the buckle breaking very seriously to make sure this never happens again! The buckle that attaches to your waist broke 20 minutes into using this leash! This is an UNSAFE PRODUCT!! My dog lunged at a squirrel and snap the buckle broke. My dog is 68#s and the buckle is way too small. OllyDog is looking into the problem! I still use my broken leash with a carabiner and love it! I have to hike with trekking poles due to bad knees and this… Full review

Nooksack Racing Supply Trekking Belt and Bungee Line

rated 4.5 of 5 stars In the dog hiking forums and blogs I follow, there is often polarization about whether to leash your dog while hiking. We always have our dogs on leash, to protect the dogs, the wildlife, and the fragile vegetation. A nice solution to hand held leashes is the trekking belt and line; we started using them for skijoring, then snowshoeing and then hiking. We have recommended this product to others who want an alternative to hand held leashes. We use the Nooksack hiking/skijor belt and bungee line combination. Full review

Ruff Wear Knot-a-Leash

rated 5 of 5 stars Best leash I've ever owned. This leash is awesome. Best leash I've used, hands down. It's seen 2 years of use and dozens of hikes, and still looks like new. The carabiner is a nice feature, makes it easy to use in the winter with gloves on.   As with all RuffWear products, its a bit pricey, but with RuffWear you do get what you pay for. Full review

Ruff Wear The Roamer Leash

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a new take on the dog leash that offers versatility and hands-free freedom. So this is a supped up bungee cord of sorts with a tough exterior wrapping around it. It has the option of expanding the hand loop into a waist loop so you can take your dog running. It offers a softer material on the wrist then the traditional dog leashes.  I have a 100 lb lab who has the propensity to take off when he sees a cat. He could care less about squirrels, skunks, etc but he wants to get cats — ironic… Full review

Ruff Wear The Roamer Leash

rated 5 of 5 stars Cool, stylish leash. I use it with my dog on trail runs and day hikes. We both like that it has a little give while running. Has a really nice, strong clip. Comfortable padded handle with a buckle to hook around something or around your waist to have a hands-free leash. There's also a little clip to clip your potty bags too. Full review

Ruff Wear Knot-a-Leash

rated 5 of 5 stars Ruff Wear knot-a-leash is by far the greatest leash I have used yet. I walk dogs for a living and so my leashes get a lot of use and wear, but the knot-a-leash is light enough for small dogs, strong enough for big dogs, and doesn't knot.   After walking dogs almost every day for almost a year, the leash still looks the same as when I got it -- no wear or tear here!
