In 1977, a local ski patrolman from Jackson Hole, Wyoming realized the need for an eyewear retainer that would grip his shades and secure them tight to his body while performing all aspects of his job. Grabbing some old neoprene from a kayak spray skirt and a pair of scissors, he constructed what was then recognized as the first Croakies®.
Throughout the years, Croakies has remained a small company with a big heart. They value innovation and creativity, yet their goal has remained the same; they strive to create eyewear retainers and accessories that provide comfort, durability, and functionality for active people of all ages.
Using only the highest quality materials available, 90 percent of Croakies revenue comes from products that are proudly made in the USA. The headquarters is still in Jackson Hole Wyoming and Croakies production is just a short distance away in Bozeman Montana.
