Verified Buyer Reviewed by ali in Maine from Maine on Monday, October 20, 2014the metal hardware is not heavy duty.
Fine if you have a small dog or an older dog and not too active.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by PR from Colorado on Wednesday, October 1, 2014I can't believe Mountainsmith has stopped making this - they are close to perfect! The collar is attractive and easy to use. The reflective stitching is a very nice touch. The leash is awesome - the waistbelt is super convenient for my wife to run with the dog and push the stroller. And the built-in stretch point is a great feature. Wish I could buy more of these in other colors for the future!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Dave W the ski instructor from Salt Lake City, Ut on Tuesday, June 24, 2014Love it. Out this morning. Especially like the ability to put on waste for running with our Airdale.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by NC hiker from North Carolina on Tuesday, June 17, 2014This is an ok leash and collar, but seems too light for my german shepherd. When shortened it is bulky, but it is a nice long leash and would be fine for smaller, lighter dogs.
Reviewed by TK Stewart from Arlington, Texas on Monday, February 10, 2014My Lab loved this collar the moment I put it on her. I will admit that she has always worn a collar and feels safe when she has hers on. The big plus, and the reason I bought these was due to the reflective lines built into the collar. My only complaint is with the leash. Although well made, and has the same reflective qualities as the collar, it does not come with any instructions for you to be able to benefit from it's quirky design
Verified Buyer Reviewed by bob from spokane, wa on Wednesday, January 2, 2013Leash is great. Dog doesn't seem to mind wearing the collar. So all is well. Oh and it seems to be of good quality.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Bikefreak from Fountain, CO on Thursday, November 1, 2012Attractive matching set. Large size fits my basset well, but is adjusted to the smallest position. Pup seems to like it and the leash is nice and lightweight.
- Best Uses: Tags, Walking
- Pros: Adjustable, Looks Nice, Reflective
Reviewed by KCtoRC from Rapid City, SD on Wednesday, August 1, 2012First, the leash: I loved the attention to detail on the leash, including the buckle on the handle (convenient for tethering dog to pole without needing to remove leash and make a loop hitch as well as adjustable loop for hands-free dog walking) and the shorter sewn-in loop near the clip for when the dog needs to be close to me.
Unfortunately, the webbing was not strong enough to withstand my dog's decision to chew on it when tethered for a short time. It was broken in two within a couple minutes and was free. Also, the reflective thread doesn't extend the length of the leash, like I expected.
Secondly, the collar: Despite the leash being unusable after second or third use, I continued to use the collar, which is pretty basic aside from the reflective thread, which I liked.
Unfortunately, the plastic buckle was not strong enough to withstand a hearty charge at a cat while on a tie-out, and broke clean through. My dog was able to have the run of the neighborhood, sans collar, at night.
I'd be more disappointed in my purchase if it wasn't so cheap on Sierra, but that doesn't preclude the fact that the collar was worn for 3 days before the buckle broke, and the leash for about two walks. Bottom line, not for strong or active dogs. She wore a collar with a plastic buckle from Wal-Mart for about a year before it broke, and I expected a longer life from Mountainsmith.
- Best Uses: Low energy dogs
- Cons: Not durable, Poor quality
- Pros: Lightweight, Nice details
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Migo from Sedona, AZ on Tuesday, July 24, 2012The leash/collar are lightweight and seem durable at the same time. I love how the leash can be folded up and secured! The leash is a great length as well. The collar fits my dog well and is easy to snap on and off. The green color is really nice. I would order this again!
- Pros: Collar fits well, good color, Leash can be folded up, Leash good length
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Dave the speed hiker from Los Angeles, CA on Friday, April 20, 2012Great leash, for everyday walks! The only thing is better for a Small to medium dog. Hard to control if your dog is on the large size.
