Rated 3 out of 5 by PatrigeChaser Good Collar, BUT
The collar is good, however the engraving is not what it used to be. I have been buying these collars for years and have noticed that the engraving tag is now thinner and the engraving isn't etched in as deep, therefore the lettering wears and becomes illegible before the collar wears out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jwathas Love these collars!
We recently purchased 3 of these collars for our black Lab and 2 Golden Retrievers. Being retrievers and just sporting dogs in general, they all love to swim and all of their nylon collars would get ratty and smelly and always needed to be taken off and washed whenever they had been swimming. These waterproof collars are perfect for active dogs who love to get wet. They can wear them in the water and they stay perfectly clean and don't absorb the water at all. They still look brand new even after getting wet multiple times. These collars will also be great for when they play in the snow in the winter. They are definitely very high quality and I'm fairly certain that they will last for a very long time. LL Bean never lets us down!

This is a. Wry durable collar. Easy fit. I had my collar come with an engraved with my phone number. A little disappointing that the engraving was not put very deep into the metal plate. It is hard to see. But the collR is great. I'll fix the other problem by marking the clear with a sharpie pen on the inside.

This collar does not retain water, so it allows your dog to dry quickly after water retrieves. This helps prevent irritation. Plus, the ring is a handy place to attach license/rabies vaccination tags and the short clip lead you need for Hunt tests or Field trials.
Note the collars are sized to fit the circumference of your dogs neck: 15 inches around the neck needs a 15 inch collar. Simple. My female Labrador has worn this collar for a month now and it still looks like new. Here is a photo of the green collar on a black dog.

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.
