This lead is 5 feet in overall length. It is made out of black and orange braided rope. There is a solid brass snap on both ends of the leash. This leash has a feature most other rope leads do not have, and there is a floating O ring that gives the lead many options; you can attach the snap to the ring, offering you the option to use lead like a slip lead. Another option is if you need to tie your dog at any time, take the snap in the handle and go around a tree, fence post, etc., and snap into the floating O ring. MADE IN USA!!!
