****** I was provided with the Hipster Leash in exchange for this review. As always, all opinions are my own!******
Let's start with the appearance! I LOVE lime green. It makes me smile. It is very durable, and the black part is elastic, so it stretches. The large pocket in the front could hold smaller phones, but my iPhone 5C did not fit well with its cover on. If I remove the cover (which I won't do, I'm a klutz!) it will fit though. There are two side pockets. The one on your right has a netted bag that can pull out to hold your poop bags, treats, ball, etc. On your left is another zipper pocket, perfect for keys or spare cash.
The leash attaches on either side, which I love! Depending on where you are running, that will be important! I never let my dog on the outside when we walk on the street, I don't want her to be able to run out in front of a car! I always keep her between me and the side of the road. Make sense?
On the sidewalk I don't have to worry, however, because she never jumps down into the street. Bonus.
When I ran with the Hipster Leash, I noticed a few things right away. It is super comfy. I have big hips and a tiny waist so not everything fits me well. This was very comfortable, and I had no problems running with it. That being said, you wouldn't want to attach a dog that wasn't properly trained. That can go totally sideways and you, or your pup, could get hurt! Because the band is elastic, when the pup pulls, which all pups are known to do, it is very uncomfortable. It pulls on the elastic which isn't so great for people with low back issues. When we used it with our Corgi (no pics, blogger fail) we didn't have that issue because he NEVER pulls. Our little Nugget? She's a puller.
A few facts....
- No-slip, elastic waistband contours to body, and fits waist sizes 31-47
- Two pockets with reverse coil zippers for carrying essentials
- Attached mesh pouch collapses and stores inside its own pocket - ideal for carrying a tennis ball or treats
- Dual D-rings for right side and left side leash attachment
- Woven leash with dual clips included, leash is about 5 feet long
Running aside, my teenie likes this leash when she walks the dog. Why? Hands free texting. For real, she can walk the dog and still use her phone. Sad, but true. In that respect, though, if you are walking the dog with your toddler in tow, this is a great way to get it done! Who doesn't need more hands?
I am really enjoying the Hipster Leash, and Nugget loves that she gets to run. Every time we use it, she gets better at not pulling, so there is hope for her yet! You can check out the Hipster Leash on Amazon, as well, and they have other great products for your pups! It comes in other colors as well, so if lime green doesn't make you as happy as it makes me, you can get it in another color!
Do you ever run with your pup?
