BIOTHANE® COMPARISONS TO OTHER PRODUCTS:
Why is BioThane® better than Leather?
Leather is an uncoated surface which absorbs dirt and bacteria and requires regular and daily maintenance.
BioThane® is more comfortable to the hand than leather and provides the peace of mind that your product will outperform and outlast products using leather straps. Beta class products with the look and feel of leather are a perfect match.
How does BioThane® compare to Nylon webbing?
Nylon’s uncoated surface makes it more vulnerable to weather and abrasion in that it absorbs water and can also hold bacteria leading to the possibility of odours and mildew. It is also inferior to BioThane® in appearance. BioThane® provides the peace of mind that your product will outperform and outlast products using nylon straps.
How does BioThane® compare to Polyester webbing?
Polyester’s uncoated surface makes it more vulnerable to weather and abrasion. It is also inferior to BioThane® in appearance. BioThane® provides the peace of mind that your product will outperform and outlast products using polyester straps.
Is Vinyl better than BioThane®?
Vinyl does not have webbing inside to give it added strength, so it experiences wear and tear more easily and can have weak spots. Using BioThane® will outperform and outlast products using vinyl straps.

** Please to not leave your Biothane products where they can be chewed by your dog or horse. While it is a very strong and durable product and will last for years under normal wear and tear any dog (or horse) will chew through any lead unless it is made of chain. Best practice is to put leads/harnesses/lines away or out of reach when you have finished using them.
