Rated 5 out of 5 by Mak130 Great collar
I bought this collar for my lab and love it. She always finds water during our hikes so I really like that the collar is waterproof. She is a yellow lab and her old collar would turn her fur red around her neck after it would get wet. It's light-weight too. I had it monogrammed which is a nice touch? The color is bright but it's perfect to keep track of her when on a hike. Thanks LL Bean!

Bright Orange collar makes for great hunting collar and rubberized material should be easy to clean and dry after a good hike regardless of the weather.

I have a Nova Scotia duck toller dog, he is basically a border collie of the water! He has worn the original Orange LL Bean collar for a few years now, constantly in and out of water and wet more often than dry. He's a dock diving whirl. This collar has incredibly withstood all of this abuse and is still in good condition! So I didn't hesitate to get him a nice new green collar for Christmas this year. Added bonus is the engraving for his name and address. Love this collar! I don't hesitate to recommend it.

The only negative thing I would say is it is difficult to read the collar as it is silver. I had a gold one in the past and that is much easier to read. Other than that, it is a flexible collar and with 2 hunting dogs very durable. The bright orange works well for them too and I like the ring on the neck.

I purchased these collars (total of 3) for two very large Golden Retrievers and a Beagle Mix. All three love to swim so we visit the lake nearby two to three times a week during the warmer months. After a few swims the regular collars begin to smell and no matter how many times I've washed them the smell will not go away. So because these are waterproof they're a perfect solution. Another reason is I'm trying to outwit my little Bentley (the beagle), he's 6 months old and still in the chewing stage. The Golden's just lay there and let him chew their collars into pieces, so far these collars don't have so much as a mark on them. I'm thinking he has met his match. And lastly, I love the metal riveted name plate with their name & number on them. The last collars had the same information embroidered on them and the font was huge, we frequent the dog park and just felt my phone number was just too visible but these collars would take a little more effort to get the information. But visible enough to serve its intended purposed. I would recommend these collars to anyone who has a dog that loves to swim a lot.

I'm ordering my third collar today. The Bright Orange against my black lab is perfect for the area in which I live. During Hunting season she can be easily seen plus the Orange jacket is for added safety.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JBSorTJB Not for small dogs,
Too long, too stiff, too clunky. If you don't absolutely need a waterproof collar or if you have a small dog avoid this collar. If you think it might work and are unsure I suggest you order it without the engraving so you can return it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by irishjbs Good collar. Bad name plate!
The collar fits correctly and is made well. However the name plate for the dog is cheap and hard to read. Paying extra for engraving, I would expect more from llbean

Rated 5 out of 5 by Campbellmom8 Great collar but runs a bit big
I love this waterproof collar! My white golden retriever used to turn a light shade of whatever collar he was wearing (I felt bad for the big guy when I got him a red collar and he turned pink all around his neck!) Now with the waterproof collar he stays white and the collar stays its color too! He can swim till the cows come home, no problem.
It does run a bit big and it does not adjust, so I took it to the cobbler, he added two holes and cut off the excess strap. I didn't want to return it bc it had been engraved, but I'm sure LLBean wouldn't have minded.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LarryLar COLOR is NOT as pictured & MEASUREMENTS
When the product arrived, I was surprised to find that the actual color was far different than how it appeared on the website. I ordered the orange one, and the actual color is fluorescent orange. The second picture of the collar on the dog is a closer representation of the actual color.
The collar is soft, but rigid and fully coated with a clear urethane rubber. The material shouldn't cause irritation on your dog's neck.
The collar is measured from the end of the buckle to the second inner hole. This will leave you with 2 holes to make the collar larger (16" or 17"), or 1 hole to make the collar smaller (14").
