Get in Gear: Croakie

If you're like me, the summer weather draws you outside every chance you can get. When the powerful sun is blazing, you realize the importance of wearing sunscreen to protect your skin, and sunglasses to protect your eyes.

Sunglasses can be really expensive, but they're totally worth it, especially if the lenses are polarized (I love the crystal clear vision). Since they are so small and lightweight, they can get easily lost, and then what good would they be for your eyes?

Keep track of your sunglasses with a Croakie. It's a strap that attaches to the ends of your glasses, so when you're not wearing them, you can just let them hang from your neck. The strap is made of neoprene so it's soft, flexible, comfortable, and dries quickly if it gets wet.

A Croakie is a necessity if you are always misplacing your sunglasses. It's also great if you do fast-paced outdoor sports like biking, or water sports like water skiing and kayaking (what a crime it would be if your expensive sunglasses fell off your face and into the water!). Check out the 4 different styles:

They are not the coolest thing, but I am blind as a bat without my eye glasses. I use Croakies on them when I go running to make sure they don't fall off. If my glasses fell off in the middle of a trail, my vision is bad enough that I would have a lot of trouble finding them. Its not the most fashionable choice, but it does the trick.

I'm still waiting for my new sunglasses to come in. I've been so excited waiting for them that I never thought of the chances of me losing them out on the water yet. Then when I thought hey, my prescription Oakley's are costing me $400, as unfashionable as these seem, I think I might get one now.
