    this was my prototype leash, the anchor is a little bigger than should be and at one point the design wraps wrong.

    The leash measures about 4'1" from tip to tail.

    Handle is back braided for extra strength.

    This is made out of legit 550 paracord military grade, I did a lot of research before buying.


    I have gotten many compliments out of my leashes.
    For 15$ this thing will be at your door. (15$ includes the paypal fee & shipping.)

    Have you walked a dog with the leash yet? I am wondering how it stretches and handles the rain.

    I did a lot of reasearch on paracord, to get the real stuff so this stuff will not rot, mold or mildew. It does stretch, not much though. I don't think it would be apparent unless you were doing a stretch test in your hands.

    I spent 8 years in the Army I know that 550 cord is a good product. I just didnt think about using it for a leash, good idea.

    We love ours for our dog. Every new experience with it I have been impressed. Oregon is pretty wet, and we haven't had any problems with the rain, or snow.

    I like your leash, and want to point out that a single straight piece will definitely work for up to a pretty huge dog so this can probably double as a tow strap (not serious).

    thanks Chaz, these things are pretty awesome. I might just keep this one as a backup.
