Ruffwear Roamer Leash Review & Giveaway

Recently my pal Shilah the Husky and I got to test out a product by Ruffwear, the Roamer Leash for some of our hiking/walking excursions. It’s quickly jumped to the top of our list for must-have walking gear, find out why below!

One of the things that makes the Roamer Leash so unique is that it can be used as a hand-held leash or it can be extended to go around your waist too.

Mom found that being able to tether me to her waist made hiking and walking so much easier! Not only did she have her hands free to take photos like this one, but it made it easier to climb tough terrain as I helped to pull her up the hill (with my powerful muscles!).

I was also impressed by the Talon Clasp which was extra durable and made mom feel easier that I wouldn’t be able to break it open from pulling too hard.

Another important feature about the Roamer leash is that it’s extendable! The wavelength stretch webbing can extend from 7.3 feet to 11 feet on the Large (which is what you see pictured) or 5.5 feet to 7 feet on the small.

It also comes with a handy accessory loop near the clasp for attaching dog bags or lightweight items and can also be used as a quick “short” leash when needed. Although the “short” leash works a little better for bigger dogs as I was a little too low to the ground for mom to grab the handle quickly or easily. But it’s not a necessary item, and mom found she didn’t need to use it much anyway.

So with our new Roamer leashes Shilah and I embarked on a few recent hikes. Our first stop was the Stroud Preserve!

Immediately our parents loved the fact that these leashes could extend with our pulling (and boy do Shilah and I like to pull) but weren’t as dangerous as zip leashes. With a zip leash you have to worry about rope burn (which has happened to my mom before) and you can’t grab the leash without hurting your hand in the event of an emergency. With the Roamer Leashes none of this was an issue as you can quickly grab the leash to pull your dog closer should you need to.

Shilah and I enjoyed our walk thoroughly with the Roamer Leash, and our parents had a nicer walk because when tethered to their waists our pulling was actually beneficial – helping to pull them up the hills (those lazy humans!)

The Roamer Leash also came in handy when it was time for Shilah and I to be tethered. The adjustable handle loop made it easy to tie us to any object on the trail when necessary.

As you saw last week, Shilah and I even tested our Roamer leashes on some tougher terrain when we visited Glen Onoko Falls.

Again, the ability to tether to our parent’s waists made the rocky terrain that much more manageable since the humans had their hands free to help themselves and us make the climb.

Shilah and I both agree the Roamer Leash has become our new favorite leash for all of our hiking and walking adventures! We highly recommend it!

And now for the best part….

  11. Tina P07-07-14

  16. Christopher07-07-14

    This would be perfect for our one Doxie who hides when the leashes come out. “I don’t need a leash for walks Mommy” Um yes you do, esp with the trucks coming down the hill so fast.

  17. Celeste07-08-14

      You bet! I don’t leave home without it now!

  19. Patti Stimpfl07-10-14

    Ammo! I would love the black one. Since my knee surgery, Magda and I are behind on our walks. Hoping the soon we will be back out on the trail. But the waist option would be awesome for the rotator cuff that is also feeling the effects of old age. No more pulling on my shoulder! xxxx 🙂

  20. Stacey07-14-14

    Love the ruff wear products! And we have a husky and mini daschund too!!

  21. Bryn Nowell07-14-14
