Always hard to tell until you hold the product, but this is a nice soft yet strong material. Very pleasant to grip and can tell it is strong and will be so easy to clean.
We recently upgraded both of our dogs' walking gear! The dual-length leash is the best invention.. We also bought the matching Collars, we really love that these don't smell like normal collars over time. At first we were a bit dubious about a no small product, but I'm now converted, I'll never buy another collar.
Great collar. If you are on the fence about sizing, maybe go the larger size.
