The Ruffwear Slackline Lead is an adjustable-length lead that can be hand-held or waist-worn. The 6 to 3.5-foot (1.8 to 1.1 m) adjustable length can be fully extended for relaxed walks, or shortened for more control as needed. An ergonomic metal slider allows for easy one-handed length adjustment on the go.

The Ruffwear-designed Talon Clip™ provides a strong and secure attachment, the handle is padded for comfort, and a convenient accessory loop is included for pick up bags or small clip-on items. Integrated reflectivity keeps people and dogs visible in low-light conditions.

Available in four color options. Try our matching Crag™ Collar, Top Rope™ Collar or Chain Reaction™ Collar for the complete set up.

Such a versatile leash!!

Love everything about this leash. I live in the city and walk EVERYWHERE with my dog, I love that if my hands are full from running errands I can turn the handle into a waistband. Even better is the ability to shorten or lengthen the leash for wherever we are. The thing that I was most impressed with was how durable it is without being heavy, my dog does not love being on the leash but because this is so lightweight she doesn't seem nearly as bothered by it. Also, it being reflective is a must!

Love this leash!

I work with a medical alert service dog and this leach allows me to be hands free. Perfect for what I needed.

A Must Have

So glad I bought this leash. I can easily clip the end around something if I need the pup to stay put, and the adjustable length is so handy. Seems to be made of high quality materials and hasn’t frayed even with our dog chomping on it from time to time. I do with it could be even a little longer. When it’s clipped around the waist for running it can become too short to even be practical. For petite people it’ll work fine, but for my partner who is 6’-5” and athletic, it just becomes way too short.
