Sport type: Outdoor Lifestyle
In 1977 a ski patrolman came up with an idea for an eyewear retainer that would grip his shades through all kinds of alpine adventures. He grabbed an old wetsuit, some sharp scissors, and a good idea, then he made the first pair of eyewear retainers. The ingenious device was based on the design of a Chinese finger trap. Croakies are produced in the USA at their production facility in Bozeman, Montana. Having been used by all types of people, doing all kinds of activities all over the world, Croakies were then introduced to SPACE. They became standard equipment for the crew on the space shuttle in 1990. Croakies uses top quality components to create all their products.

Croakies is all about getting out and exploring lifeâs big adventures. âLove Life. Play Outside.â
From the manufacturer
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. The ingenious device was based on the design of a Chinese finger trap and it quickly became a hit with all of the patrollers! Demand picked up quickly for the patrolman's invention which was nameless at first.
Back in the seventies, the Jackson Hole ski patrol used the nickname 'croakies' when they couldn't think of a word (think 'thing- amajig'), but it finally stuck on the first neoprene eyewear retainer ever invented.
Croakies was born in the mountains of Jackson, Wyoming, and thanks to a robust manufacturing facility in Bozeman, Montana, the brand still calls the mountains home today. It's this deep connection to the outdoors that keeps Croakies driving forward towards greater product innovation, better, more sustainable production practices, and consistently raising the bar in creating a high-level retention products that inspire everyday adventure and provide comfort, style, durability, and functionality to active people of all ages.
