Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't tell it's even there The first reviewer is spot on. I have three paddles two are high dollar carbon ones and if you're going to spend that kinda money on a paddle it's best to protect it and keep hold of it. I never can tell this is attached to me or paddle and never gets in my way. I've even used this to clip my kayak handle and the other end velcoed to a small tree or limb while outta kayak encase tide or river rises. It always returns to it's original shape.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well Does the job. I like the coiled leash. It keeps any excess from getting in the way. The clip is plastic, which is why I gave this 4 star rather than 5. Time will tell how it holds up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get one - you won't regret it! I flipped my kayak in flood waters several years ago. I thought both kayak and paddle were lost as the kayak was pinned against some blow down and the paddle was no where to be seen. Turns out it was snagged on the bottom of the mass keeping the kayak from being freed. When it was pried off, there was no damage to the kayak, the paddle or the leash. I'm replacing it now because I lost it last winter and don't like its replacement from this summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy it once.. what can I say...Northwater product that functions better than anything else of similar design on the market. Easy to install velcro system and the coil is bomber in comparison to other bungee cord system. Considering the cost of a paddle and the old adage...what's your life/paddle worth....[$] is dirt cheap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from it works I am a flat water kayak paddler. I like to enjoy the scenery and take many pictures. Occasionally my idle paddle grabs the water and begins to slip overboard. The leash keeps it within reach. This is a great product, I bought one for a friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't leave home without it It made the whole difference of keeping my $300+ paddle or having it washed ashore someplace in San Francisco Bay. Indispensable, especially if solo kayaking.
