Croakies Suiters take the hassle out of having glasses in the backcountry! No more misplacing, fumbling with, or dropping your glasses!

I recommend this product to... well, everyone! Seriously!


  • Inexpesive
  • Weigh next to nothing
  • Make glasses more convenient to carry
  • Very comfy soft cotton
  • Come in colors and styles to "suit" everyone (get it?)


  • Can easily be snagged
  • Not waterproof
  • Can be annoying if you aren't used to wearing them

Now here is another one of those products that you don't think is necessary... until you start using it.

I've seen people using these, or similar products, for many years. I never gave them a second thought. I considered them... unnecessary!

Well now that I have them, I can't go in the backcountry without them!

They stay attached to the pair of sunglasses that I take backpacking, and I keep them hung over the rearview mirror of my truck, always ready to go.

As you all probably know, on most trails you are constantly changing from being in the sun to being in the shade. Before using Croakies Suiters, I used to hate taking sunglasses with me because of that—on, off, on, off. And then try to keep up with them, without stopping, and without dropping them. It was such a hassle, that I just stopped taking sunglasses. But then I would wish that I had them. I just couldn't win.

But all of that has changed now! No more fumbling with, or dropping, my sunglasses. No more worrying about where I will put them when I'm not wearing them, but yet still have them within reach for the next need.
I no longer have any reservations about taking my sunglasses with me when I'm out on the trails!

The good;

They are just a simple, 14" piece of doubled, tubular, soft cotton cloth that attaches to the ends of your glasses—ANY glasses, not just sunglasses!


They have a sliding adjustment tab...

... that allows you to change the amount of slack behind your head.

And the best part?

Made in the USA!!

The bad:

I only gave these a 4 1/2 star rating because of the following:

  1. I have to admit, they can be slightly annoying unless you are used to these kinds of products, which I am not. Yet. ;-)
  2. Since they are made of a soft cotton, they are prone to being snagged on branches, etc.
  3. Again, cotton—not waterproof.

And The Ugly:

And here's a picture of some dork...

... jeez, put a hat on, would you?

But he does get points for using Croakies Suiters! Lol

The model I have retails for $6.99, comes in different sizes, 14 different solid colors, PLUS 18 print colors, PLUS Mossy Oak, PLUS Reeltree! There is no way you won't find one you like!

Croakies Suiters eyeglasses retainers—you will love them!

Good luck and get out there!
