    Retractable Rangefinder Tether (REALTREE Hardwoods Green HD Camouflage) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems sturdy need to get it muddy now Got this for my HALO 600 rangefinder, wanted something I can release and have it out of the way, but also near by when I need in a hurry. I wear my old military TA-50 LBE when hurting and have it clipped on the off hand shoulder harness - only concern will be once I get it muddy how the grit and mud will be handled if brought back on the cable during retract - the case is plastic, so also will cover in cloth tape to cut down on the noise made from it retracting - otherwise seems to be as advertised so far

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I attached this to my Nikon Monarch 800 rangefinder and hung it on my golf bag. The springloaded tether was strong enough to keep it retracted while I carried my bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbreakable & Durable I am not using this with a rangefinder. I am using this as my everday badge holder to replace the cheap ones I normally get from work. I am suprise by the quality and the strength of the cord. I normally go through a tether about every six month and will cause me to lose my key and/or badge or both. I don't think this one will be replaced anytime soon.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Strong and Secure I'm trying to use it to secure my cell phone, not a rangefinder. The tether is well made. It doesn't come loose from either end until you release it. The cable has more tension that I can use however. It could be a bit longer too. I can't use it because of these limitations.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Golf Rangerfinder I am using this to secure my laser rangefinder to my golf bag. The cable is long enough to allow use while still attached at the top of my bag. So far, works great. Have already lost a $400 unit due to a faulty case closure. This has worked well so far to prevent another loss.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and strong This has a strong metal cable and enough tension to support my large Sekonic light meter. Exactly what I was looking for. Nicer than those hardware store key tethers. Would be nice if it had a belt clip on the back and a removable top hook/clip.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeping it tethered. Going to use this on my Motorcycle, alway keep a GoPro camera on my bike but being a adventure rides the roads are not always smooth, I have already lost one camera and don't want to loose another one. this tether is super strong and awesome!
