“In 1977 a local ski patrolman from Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Wyoming came up with an idea for an eyewear retainer that would grip his shades, through all kinds of alpine adventures. Using an old wetsuit, some sharp scissors, and good old American ingenuity, he made the first pair of eyewear retainers.”
Once the world recognized the necessity for eyewear retainers, Croakie was born. The ski patrol in Wyoming used the term “Croakies” when they couldn’t think of a word for something. This name stuck and is recognized all over the globe for its function. It is the perfect addition to eyewear for men and women who want to keep their glasses on them at all times.
Use it to secure your glasses or sunglasses tighter on your head as you go about your active lifestyle. Enjoy your time on the water with the floating Croakie and have the peace of mind that your glasses will not sink to the bottom! With over 30 years of experience in the industry, Croakies are made in the United States with quality materials that are built last.
