I would be interested in testing one out as a dog leash. How it holds up to tugging, pulling, and water.

I'd buy one! I have a huge paracord bracelet that a friend's husband made and I loooove it. He and his wife both make really neat pieces that can be functional but look good. I've been joking about having them make a Tango sized collar in dark red but with his current hate for collars I've laid off it.

ANYWAYS, yeah those things are super popular if you can make them kid/dog sized. A lease might burn your hands if a dog lunges, maybe make a loop at the end and line it with something softer?

What style and material would the clasp be made of and how would the D or O ring be situated? Those would be the deciding factors for me.

I would not, but only because I can make them. I can think of a couple of people I know that would buy them though.

I really want to learn to make leashes out of paracord, but since I'm lazy I'd definitely buy one.

Thanks everyone for commenting (and voting). I'll get back to everyone once I've had a chance to experiment more.

In this weave they are about 3/4" wide. The clip on these are 5/8" (it's a bracelet) but collars will have a 3/4" buckle on them.

They should not stretch as the paracord is pre-shrunken before being weaved.

This is another thing I will be sending out testers for. It's easy to place a D-ring, but need to see how well it holds out being used "in the field".

I loooove my survivor bracelet that Jes got me and always find myself thinking how much I would love one for Traveler. The biggest issue I have is the plastic buckle, I tend to not trust them that much.

I'd buy it if it was wider and a different colour

Any way to make a martingale out of that?

My guys mostly wear martingale style collars
