Quality kill cord

Anyone know if/where you can get decent quality kill cord? Looking for something with decent quick release comfortable strap which will go around leg, can find ones with Velcro strap for wrist suitable for PWC but not big enough for leg?

If I remember correctly then 250kts is using a dog collar (are they available with Velcro - I don't have a mutt so not sure) round his leg with the standard KC connected.

Good idea. A quick-release collar would work just as well, with the KC clipped to the lead attachment ring. I have 5 dogs so I am sure I have a spare collar somewhere...

Thanks
