I had a similar collar that was similar in initial quality that i paid $60 for. This one was much more economical. Even if the quality does not hold up, I could order 5 more of these before spending the same amount of money for the more expensive one. The stitching is very nice and everything appears well constructed. I got the red for my little jack russell mix. She is about 22 pounds and i ordered a small. It's on the last hole but i'm sure a medium would have been way too big for her. I like to keep it a little loose. It took about 2.5 weeks to get to me, which is not that bad as i was expecting (based on the other reviews) that it would take longer. Overall this collar seems to be a nice substitute for the more expensive versions. Hopefully it holds up over time, but if it does not i'm perfectly happy buying another one at this price.
