Reflective collar recommendations?

After Bentley's latest adventure last night I want to get him a reflective collar & leash. Does anyone have recommendations for good ones?
Years ago I bought one for my GR but it wasn't very reflective. Ky's new body guard harness is reflective on the letters and a strip in front of her neck which works really well but I don't want a harness for Bentley, certainly not one that says body guard LOL

I did a forum search but pretty much came up with light up collars. That's not what I'm looking for.
Thanks.

Joyce, these are stunning collars and you could make it 1 1/2" wide which would make it more visible. I have 1 1/2" martingales with a quick release for our crew (not reflective) which I love for going out.

I just bought Tugg a reflective harness monogramed with his name & my cell from Orvis. I believe they have collars also. a bit pricey, but i searched internet also, and this is what i wanted.

I have this one, and it is the most reflective collar I've used. They are 2 inches wide, so there is a lot of material to reflect light.

Scott Reversible Reflexite Bands.

The price is good too.

This one is also OK, if you are looking for an actual collar:

I have it and it is indestructible.

I love and highly highly recommend the viz vest
No.1 selling Reflective Dog Vest in United States of America!
I have one for each of my dogs for our early morning and night walks.
I first saw one on another dog. I was walking early am with my headlamp and couldn't see the dog or the person but their vest was lit up by my headlamp super bright. It was a black dog so it was a bit odd seeing this floating vest moving towards me. I stopped and asked them about it and ordered one from amazon that day.
Both of mine and now Kenzie wear one and it doesn't seem to bother than at all

I know this is a few months old but I bought Zane a EzyDog double up collar and a Petflect reflective leash several weeks ago and they're both great. Since he's brown I wanted something that will stand out so I bought orange. Both reflect very well in the daylight and really well at night. I really like the collar having 2 "D" rings so if he pulls the pressure is put on the 2 "D" rings and not the clip itself like most clip collars so I don't have to worry about the clip breaking while on leash.

THE COLLAR THE COLLAR


THE LEASH THE LEASH

How did you know what size collar to get? I have a 2 year old Lab. Her neck measures 22" or up. The description says 17.5" - 25".

I based it off of his last collar. His neck is 15" so I went w/ the medium.

If you know 100% your Labs neck is at least 22" you could go w/ either the Large or XL. The Large is 1" thick and the XL is 1.5" thick. I'd probably go w/ the Large since it's good up-to 25.5".
