I have spent considerably more for this kind of quality leather collar. The hardware is solid brass and the rivets are strong. The flat brass circle in the middle of these collars is the Conway Safety design and it really works. If the dog gets hung up in the brush by the collar, this design allows the collar to roll and release the dog. Unlike other collar materials, leather breaks in like a favorite pair of jeans. Your dog will wear this collar for a very long time, it might as well be comfortable.
Collars are first class quality, strong hardware. This is the third order for these collars over a six year period and I'm never disappointed. Got a pair of yellow labs that work and play hard and these collars hold up.
