This is the second one of these that I have bought. The first one is in use by my female Cairn Terrier, this one is for my new, bigger male Cairn. They are a great item for these little doggies who are hunters of the night that don't like to come in when they are busy exploring! I can see them from my house at the end of my 200' deep yard! I highly recommend this product to anyone considering it!
It is way big for now but I just adjusted it as much as I could with out having to trim the LED strip on the inside. (For those of you complaining about not being able to adjust it, just read the instructions.) I don't use it as a collar, I just put it on first and let it hang there behind her regular collar (similar to a bandana). >Edit I say light duty because it is light fabric (so the lite can show through) with electronics that could be pulled or stretched. Edit< It's very colorful and reflective on its own not counting the LEDs. They light up nicely and are quite psychedelic. The flash is about a half second cycle. I have no idea about battery life yet.

I desired a way for vehicle drivers to see my dog when we walk in our rural area at night (off leash). I anticipated the light would be super bright, but it is only moderately bright. Thus, it does serve to allow me to quickly assess the dog's location as headlights appear on the horizon, but I don't believe it enables the drivers to see the dog very well. I consider this product acceptable, but not as bright as other reviews have indicated. I got the small size, so maybe the larger ones produce more light than does mine.
I bought these collars the first time at a local sporting goods store for nearly double the price. I loved them so much I bought 2 more on Amazon to have extras around. Like many others have said, they do drain batteries quickly but its a small price to pay. Sizing is a bit hard on new dogs, my 65lb bluetick coonhound wears a medium, I bought a Large originally and it is always loose. These collars are more than water resistant, my dogs swims in them and they still work every time. I use 3 for dogs and have a small that I use as an armband or hang on my belt for my own safety. If you have a choice, the orange LED seems brighter than the red, it may just be my eyes and the red is still a bright collar, orange just seems better farther off.
