September 30, 2010Quirky Cool: The Kosoku Retractable Leash

I’m not a huge fan of retractable leashes at all. (Actually, I have used several bad words in reference to retractable leashes before, but I know a lot of dog owners like them, and I don’t want to go too far and possibly offend any one of my seven or eight readers out there.) I spotted the Quirky Kōsoku retractable leash on Pawesome recently, though, and like Kit DeLuca, I think it’s got potential.

The Kōsoku leash was developed by Quirky based on an idea submitted by reader Sara Carpenter. Now available for presale, it features a retractable 6-foot leash, a special pocket for waste bags, reflective tape for safety, and a shock-absorbent handle for ergonomic comfort.

Pretty cool, huh? (And if you got that Pretty Woman reference up there, then I think you’re pretty cool.)

The Kōsoku leash is currently on presale at Quirky.

    Now, I do like this, but I really love the Coach leash a friend gave Charlie, so we will stick with that for now! :)

    I’m with you on the not liking retractables thing. But this is pretty cool-looking, and it looks like it helps the owner keep a tighter grip. We’ve actually had problems a couple of times with people dropping their retractables and their dogs would come charging. Good find!

    This is awesome! And I’m not big on the retractable leashes, but I would give this one a shot
