Rated 2 out of 5 by from Usable I was hoping for shorter, finer elk hair. It's hard to find. Don't waste your money on this if you are going to tie small elk hair caddis.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice texture, good color and even tips Not all tying hair is created equal. This looks like good quality and I'm looking forward to tying with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Quality I was really happy that the hair didn't have a really big bend to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unrivalled product The quality of the elk hair was exceptional, from a size 16 to 20 was so easy to use and the best part I had plenty of fish on all sizes. I will only order elk hair from Orvis, nothing better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Goof but small The hair is good uniform quality with moderate under hair and good color. The piece, however, is pretty small.
