We discontinued the metal buckle style about two years ago, and they now only come with the plastic buckle. We had a problem with some of the spring release mechanisms in the metal buckles and have found these to be more reliable.

I might get one anyway, just for him to wear around the house and in case I have to grab him fast for some reason...
For outside walking - definitely don't have that much faith in a plastic buckle, so that's a no-go.
I'm going to get one for Kate too. It's perfect for around the house.
