The leash is leagues ahead of any nylon leash. It is still possible to get rope burn but much less than nylon. This leash is also very soft and the cylindrical shape as opposed to flat nylon makes it easier on the hands. The leather accents are real leather (not pressed leather) and they feel high-end. This leash is also made in the USA (although probably out of Chinese materials) which is a plus. It is a beautiful leash and unique considering everyone uses nylon or leather.
I normally would give this leash 5 stars but I am not satisfied with the way it has worn. The rope has very little abrasion resistance. If you put your hands in a coat pocket with a zipper while holding this leash it will get very fuzzy. Also it is pretty much inevitable that it will touch concrete. In six months I have owned this I have not been worried about it breaking but all the rope has become fuzzy and not as beautiful as it used to be. This is with normal use: I have not used it as a drag leash...
I am revising my review from Sept. 2016 (posted below current review). Previously, I gave the Mendota leash a review of two stars. However, I am jumping to four stars after convincing myself (and the hubby) to give the leash more time. The Mendota leash has always been, ideally, what I look for in dog leashes in terms of grip and comfort level for both dog and handler. Even now, when I think its quality has slightly declined, the leash still serves its function better than other leashes I've seen--especially for its price-range. So yes, it is more slippery than past products. And perhaps the color is a bit too bright for my taste. However, the leash is getting more grip with time and handling (no doubt because of the natural oils from our hands and other things that, perhaps, should not be mentioned) and color is but a vanity in the end.
So this is why I believe the Mendota leash deserves 4 stars instead of my previous 2: 1) comfort: the leather joint and rounded rope...
Wonderful leash. The material is very nice, it won't hurt your skin even when your dog is a jumper or puller. We have two of these, because we liked it so much that we bought the same one again when we got our second dog. We use it both for dog school (they require a 6 ft leash) and when walking our dogs. The loop where the hand goes through looks kinda big in the preview picture, but it is really a regular sized opening like you expect and see on any normal leash.
Test of time: One of our leashes is a few months older than the second, and has seen heavy use (dowsed in water and mud plenty of times). Compared to the new one, the surface has lost it's initial shine and it has puffed up a bit. IT is still just as sturdy and nice to the touch though.
