I wasn't sure how I would like this but it is great. What you may not be able to tell is that there is a shorter end and longer end to each one so the lower ring of the pelham is still engaged which I thought it wouldn't be. The only down side is you have to be very careful putting it on not to lose the tiny little leather keepers that come completely off (read, get lost in the ring if you attach it there). Totally worth the price. Great looking too.
