By far our best selling leash for the past 2 decades. This double braided rope leash - inner core and outer mantle are braided, similar to climbing rope- features our exclusive "comfort grip" handle that is lightweight and offers unparalleled cushioning, support and a non-slip grip texture. The Alpine Lead line is the leash with the greatest following of fans. We recommend the 7/16" diameter rope for dogs over 50 lbs., the 5/16" diameter rope for dogs up to 50 lbs. and the 3/16" diameter rope for dogs under 17 lbs.
