Any good recommendations on these floating leashes for sunglasses?


Or even something homemade. Any ones that don't look like mini toilet paper rolls?

Hi CAN17,
Can't comment on the floating ones, but I have an alternative method that works for me: I use a safety pin (a.k.a. nappy pin) to pin the loop of the cord to my rash shirt collar.
Cheers,

Get an optometrist to drill a hole in the arm. Attach a sunglass lead with fishing line..tie the other to your buoyancy vest or wettie.. If they come off in a crash at least they are still attached..
I wear expensive prescription polaroids and I really don't want to lose them..
