Rated 3 out of 5 by RosebudTX Great quality, but not for every dog.
Wish I could keep but am returning as it just doesn't work for my dog. I got the camo color which is really nice! The lead is very well made and nice and soft. Unfortunately it was extremely slippery with certain types of gloves on (might work with leather gloves), so much so I was nervous that if my dog bolted I would not be able to keep hold of the leash. I have a 60 lb pointer mix and while she responds well to the quick correction of a slip chain collar, with this leash she just kept pulling. Great quality and good looks, just didn't work for me (would not recommend for a dog under 50 lbs or so, it's pretty thick).

First of all I will say that this lead, like most Bean products, is very high quality. It is soft, flexible and well made. It is perfect for dogs that are 85 or more percent trained. I have another british lead for my field bred English Springer Spaniel but found myself using it all the time and purchased one to leave in my truck and another to leave in the RV. My dog is trained and does not use a lead but there are trails that we walk that require a lead by law so we walk and when we spot someone coming our way we simply slip it over the head and then unslip when done. No need for hasps or buckles to fool with especially while wearing gloves etc. Also nice to have in hunting vests for when we cross paths with other dogs and owners as a measure of courtesy. If your dog is not trained, it may be a little short to try to hold back an excited dog but it is very strong and looks like it would last a lifetime regardless of the size of the dog. Also, it's has to feel good to the dog verses the harsher choke collars. One last thing, I have machine washed my older one many times and simply hung it up to dry overnight and stiil looks like new. Try one, it could become your favorite lead.

I really like this leash. My dog likes to lead me, but this tightens around the neck. Better than a choke chain. It's like all in one. I just wish that it came in a smaller size for smaller dogs. Doesn't fit in pockets, so, I put it around my waist. An add plus, she can't "back out" of her leash. This is a great feature!!!

I am ordering my second lead after many good years with my original...which by the works fine...but has finally faded from being left in the sun. This is a great lead for our active border collie. It is very strong and no collar is needed. It releases as it states, but dog stays secure.

This leash is as described. I transport rescue dogs and feel very secure walking and transferring them from car to car. I also bought the brown tones for my own dogs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SmileDahling Love this slip lead!
I received this slip lead, in orange, as a Christmas gift last year. I have a variety of different leashes for my 39 pound dog and this is the leash I always gravitate toward as I leave the house. It's well made and is aging well. The nylon is very soft in your hand which is a plus - a friend of mine has a thicker cotton-type rope that feels a little too rough in my palm. I've used it for a 70lb hyper retriever and it felt strong enough to handle her (and is definitely strong enough for my smaller dog). I highly recommend this lead.

Rated 4 out of 5 by WilliamSonoma An excellent lightweight product
I purchased the camo lead and received it in a very timely manner. I am happy with the product and my only gripe is that after a week of use a thread is coming out. People on other reviews complained of the material that the lead is made of as being cheap, but I personally like it because it is very lightweight. The leather pieces are a nice and functional touch
