Ruff Wear The Roamer Leash
Source: received it as a personal gift
This is a new take on the dog leash that offers versatility and hands-free freedom.
- Not retractable
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 since we have two of them at home that he could care less about. Anyway with this least it slows him down gradually instead of the abrupt stop that a traditional leash. This causes less tension and pain on his neck. I really like that feature.
On the other hand sometimes you have to quickly grab a section of leash if you need to stop your dog abruptly. I think it's best uses would be on the trail or in a running situation. But walking in an urban setting where lots of other animals are around — well it might not let you stop your dog as fast as you need to.
Also, and it's a minor thing, I don't like set up of the part that attaches to the leash. It snags sometimes — more so than what a traditional leash offers. Other than that I really like this leash.
Price Paid: $22
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.

On one end is Ruffwear's exclusive Talon Clip. The Talon Clip is strong, secure and ergonomically designed for one-handed clip in to your pup's collar. A side-release buckle allows for three handle conversions: hand-held, waist worn, or fixed leash (clipped around tree or post).

The Ruffwear Roamer Dog Leash is perfect when walking or running to allow your dog the freedom to wander beyond the range of a normal leash.
