The dog leash. Not a new invention, but when it’s between you and a trained fur missile, it’s a very important piece of equipment. And Modern Icon knows this. A relatively small company with its beginnings in the sling industry is branching out into the K9 industry.
They were kind enough to send us a leash prototype to use and abuse. And we did just that. Using the leash initially in training and then deployed it on the street on actual calls for service. The leash seen countless area searches, narcotic searches, and apprehensions.
The construction of the lead is “Apocalypse Rated”, meaning this thing is durable. Webbing is double layered and stitched throughout with #69 bonded nylon thread for added strength and durability. Integrated flat daisy-chain style clip in point(s) are sized to work with larger diameter carabineers. “Tactile Response Points” mark every 2 feet allowing the handler to know how much of the lead is out when fine motor skills deteriorate under stress. Extra-large 7 inch diameter handle accommodates large gloved hands. Use of solid brass marine grade spring snap hooks for longevity and strength. The webbing is 1” mil-spec tubular nylon, climbing rated to 4,000lbs.
The clip in points is an ingenious idea to be able to use a carabineer “if” the snap should fail. I’m sure the clip in points could be used for countless other applications. Let your imagination run wild!
The leash is offered in several different lengths, depending on your needs. Colors range from black, coyote, and OD green. Four hook options are available as well; solid brass, HK style, MASH, and quick release snap shackles. See! It’s made to order!
So whether you have beagle or a working dog, this is a leash for you. Strong, durable, robust, and made by a guy who knows this leash could be in harm’s way and each stitch applied to perform.
