Biothane Dog Collar

Has anyone ordered a collar from here? http://www.canadiantack.com/dogcollars.htm

They are biothane, which is the same material the LL Bean ones in another post are made of. But this site offers far more colours. I want the dayglo green, I think it will look fantastic on my black Lab when he is grown up. My question is because it's kind of hard to get a good view of the collar. The site seems to have good testimonials though, for it's other products.

The link is to the company that makes biothane. Biothane is nylon webbing encased in polyurethane. That makes it waterproof and because it is waterproof it does not retain odour. And is much easier to keep clean. It is also said to be less itchy since it dries quicker than regular nylon collars. It is very, very strong, yet flexible, and used a lot in horse tack these days. You have probably seen those dayglo orange collars used on hunting dogs, they are biothane.
