The clip for the collar looks used?? But in a good way. It looks very rugged and it's thicker than it appears in the picture. I got this in black with a matching collar. I'm on the waitlist for a very large dog, so we'll have to see how they hold up once they're in use! But this dog is a really big deal for me, and I'm scouring the earth for just the right... everything. And I think I found it, with these! If they last a fair amount of time, I would surely order again.
