I’m a professional dog walker, so I get several hours of use out of this every day. I don’t use the included leash, I love the fannypack! My arms were getting sore from holding leashes all the time and after a couple weeks of using this with normal leashes attached to carabiners they feel much better. That said, I would change a couple things if I could. I wish the d rings could move more freely along the belt (perhaps a very short bungee leash with carabiner clasps on each side?) and I wish there was a way to lock the waistband at a certain size as it tends to loosen.
I like the zipper pouches. There is plenty of space for my phone and keys and poop bags. There are two metal clips for the leash. However they are on the side. It would be great for 2 dogs but with one when she pulls it twists the whole pouch to the side which isn’t comfortable with my phone digging into my side. I had another leash in the past where the clip is right by the buckle in the front. That one seems to function better.
I wrote a 5 star review in July because I was really in love with this belt but recently the side hook snapped off on one of our walks. My dog was in the middle of the road and luckily stayed still long enough for me to grab him. It was incredibly scary. I figured it was just from wear and tear (even though it's only been six months). So I went for a hike today with him using the other side hook when he took off the hook just snapped off! This time he went running straight for a mud puddle. I finally got him but three hours and three baths later he smells like rotten eggs and my belt is no longer operational. My husky shepherd mix is 80 pounds. I think this belt is good for smaller and less active dogs but I'll be buying a more durable belt.
I purchased the large dog leash, and on our first walk, the plastic buckle snapped when my 70 lb dog ran toward a squirrel.
I walk dogs for a living and was very excited about this pack. It is very small, which is disappointing. Also, one of the side pouches unzips itself as I am walking, which is annoying. Lastly, the adjustable band loosens up as I walk. I am not happy with this product overall, but it was a good concept.
The leash and pack combo is a game changer for hands free dog walking. My pup bounced with joy with the freedom that comes with the longer stretchy leash. Great for hiking. Easy to clip on and off for tying my dog up when I step into a shop. Love the double dog bag pockets. Nice hand hold loops on the leash.
Room for improvement: The waist band won’t secure when I adjust it. I gave up and used a safety pin. Wish the bag had more capacity and an interior pocket for securing a credit card, cash, keys & phone inside. One of the zipper pulls snapped off the first week.
Options I wish it had: A training treat bag and a shorter non stretchy leash for training and urban situations.
So first off let me say I love this leash, it makes handling my dog so easy and since I have two dogs it just makes it so much easier. The problem I’ve been encountered is that my 50lbs husky pulled the leash hard enough to stretch out the elastic leash to the point that it lost it’s elasticity. Now this happened on our first week of use. Fortunately the leash is covered in a nylon cover that didn’t tear but for the price of this leash I thought it would be a lot tougher than this. Overall I’m happy with my purchase just disappointed that I’ll have to replace a leash after one week of use
These leashes are a game changer. I am a professional dog walker who primarily works with reactive dogs. These leashes have saved my shoulders when walking strong large breeds who lunge or pull.
I highly recommend these for any dog, but especially those large dogs.
Bought the second leash to go with the Fanny pack. Works great and makes hiking much more enjoyable with being able to be hands free. I love taking pictures when I hike and this has made it so much easier to do this and still make sure I can include my dogs on the hikes!!
Love this product, but would love it even more if the fanny pack was large enough to include more storage space, and include two water bottle holders on each side.
I use this with our 1 year old yellow lab. It’s perfect for trail running and I’m so happy that I bought it.
The clasp that hooks into the collar/harness is perfect weight for small dogs. (My dog is 10lbs). Also… love the detail on the compartments for doggie bags and treats and can even hold my phone. My dog likes the bungie aspect on the leash since it gives him a heads up when he is getting close to “too far”.
As new mom with a recently adopted dog, I bought this to suit walks and runs with a stroller and a dog. I love hands free dog walking and can't imagine going back to a traditional leash!
I bought the hands-free dog leash at the beginning of the pandemic last spring. I had no idea what I was missing in my life!! I have a small/medium-sized Jack Russell Terrier. He's a runner and can be a bit of a handful on walks and hikes sometimes. This has totally saved me on multiple occasions from him getting loose. It's amazing on hikes to have my hands available. I also love the pouches for holding my phone and/or car keys and treats. I agree that the side pockets are a tad small for a brand new roll of poo bags but they are super handy to have. Best of all?? I had an issue with the zipper on my pouch and One Trail replaced the entire thing for free. This company has excellent customer service and truly stands by its products. Thank you so much!
Great quality!! I love the doggy bag pocket as well, such a great addition.
My pup seems to love it too because she is running faster and so happy when she sees it before a run.
I am absolutely loving my One Trail Gear! I actually have two little Chorkies on two separate bungee leads clipped to my waist pack and it’s working perfectly! I can walk and pick up after them.They have plenty of freedom and I can relax knowing they are safe! I will never worry that I could accidentally drop their leash. We love our walks now! Thank you One Trail!
Great leash with a smaller clip perfect for our smaller sized dog that still loves to go jogging with us. Our other hands free leash was a heavy clip designed for larger dogs so this is perfect!
