I've got a few of these leads now, in various colours. They're strong, but light and easy to roll up to put in a pocket. The clip end can rotate so if your dog is like mine and prefers to walk in circles around you rather than in a straight line on one side, it doesn't get knotted up. The handle has a bit of padding on the inside so it feels comfortable to carry. The only improvement I'd make is to make a waterproof version, with perhaps water repellant fibres and padding - when I throw my dogs toy she runs with the lead on, which is fine with this light one, but if the ground is wet or muddy it comes back filthy.
