The Esky Retractable Dog Leash is the first retractable dog leash I've used that is made with a nylon tape rather than a thinner cord. I had expected the dog leash to be heavier than the other ones I have at home due to the different style of rope. The dog leash is about the same weight, if not lighter, than my other retractable dog leashes. The smaller handled dog leashes weighed about the same as the Esky leash. The Esky leash happens to be lighter than my bigger handled dog leashes, even though the Esky leash is similar in size.
The ergonomic handle on the Esky dog leash is wider and very comfortable to hold. It feels natural and almost weightless in my hands. It makes walking and controlling the dog easy.
The braking and recoil system is easy to use. Pressing the button allows you to stop the dog. Pushing the lock in place while pressing the button locks the leash in place. Unlocking the leash doesn't allow the dogs to room free automatically. It holds the rope in the locked position until part of the rope feels slack or goes back into the leash, and then the rope will be unlocked and able to extend to it's full length again.
The length is about 13 ft long. It allows the pet to room free or stay close to you.
Beyond the ergonomic handle, my next favorite thing about this leash is the rope or nylon tape. My youngest dog has the habit of trying to bite the cords or ropes of her leashes or the other dog's leashes. I always worry that she might hurt her teeth or jaw by doing so with how hard and small that rope is. The nylon tape feels much softer and has more give if my dog tries to bite it and pull on the rope.
The leash is durable and comfortable to use. The rope feels very smooth when going out of the leash.
Note: This leash was tested on two small/toy sized breeds (about 5-8 Ibs each). Larger pet owners may have a different experience with this leash.
