I had the older model of this leash for over two years before one of the leashes snapped (one of my dogs loves squirrels a little too much!). We used it at least three times a day, so I was pretty impressed it lasted that long. This new model has been even better! I like that it is a neutral color palette. It looks a lot nicer than the old model. I also LOVE the flashlight. I live in Chicago, so it is dark before 5pm from late November to February. It makes picking up after my dogs so much easier, no more having to balance a flashlight and leash in one hand while struggling with opening a poop bag and picking up with the other. Functionally, this leash is great. I went Years using two separate leashes and always hating them getting tangled. This leash swivels really well. If you have a puller, you might have to swivel it with your hand every once in a while to get the two separated, but I would take that over the mess if two separate leashes any day. A lot of my neighbors with two dogs use this leash as well, and they seem to like it.
