This collar looks great on my black lab. I like that it is waterproof and easy to keep clean. My issue is that the ring for tags and leash attachment broke less than 24 hours after the collar arrived. The ring isn't metal, but some sort of composite with metal facing/ metal plating. Granted my dog lunged to chase the wild turkeys that frequent our neighborhood, but other collars/ harness leash rings have not failed. I will use for completely off leash water adventures.
These are the best collars I've ever bought. They are like a smooth soft plastic and they don't seem cheap at all. The colors are as pictured and it looks great.
