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

Reflective collar recommendations?

For Macin I had a little high powered flashing light that attached to his collar, it lasts like 1 week straight if its on 24 7. Might be worth a look

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 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".
