|Mary Beth||At nearly $300 for a harness it better last. I think one could find something with good quality and less expensive. I would look at the Leerburg site.|

Gimmick or Not?
After browsing around for a bit, I came across a company (Fight and Flight) that has a line of products that features clips and buckles that I had not know about previously. They typically give you the option of:
Standard Acetal buckle or Cobra buckle.
G hooks or Kong Frog clips.
Stitched nylon vs braided nylon.
My understanding is that these "high end" clips, buckles, etc. provide a higher load capacity and durability. Is that really something that you need on a dog collar or a dog leash? I've seen cobra buckles before and I've used them on multiple occasions, but I don't see why you would need one on a dog collar. Is there something that I'm missing here? I was told before that the buckles are required for "jumping" and "roping" but their harnesses aren't approved for "airborne operations."
I think they have some really cool products and I'm hoping to own some of them soon, but a few of these things aren't adding up in my head.
The same goes for K9 Storm. $55 Canadian dollars for an 18inch leash? Really...?
Would someone like me, who want to go hiking with a dog that likes to pull, have any use for any of those 3 things that I mentioned above? Would they somehow extend the life of the product? I guess what I'm trying to get at is that my dog has broken many collars and harnesses for various reasons, but is this overkill?
