Losing your Sunglasses and Valuables on the Water

Costa Del Mar Grippers

I have a friend who is a dive master and he does a lot of clean-up dives in Lake Travis and other rivers around Texas. The one thing he says he finds most of (especially on the Comal River) is sunglasses. We all know that friend who lost their $300 dollar Ray-Ban sunglasses while out on the lake or while floating.

There is such an easy (and fashionable) solution for this! Costa Del Mar makes sunglass cords, straps, keepers, retainers and grippers that are an affordable security feature for your glasses. We also have floating retainers that are a great option as well. These especially come in handy when you have more costly and quality glasses that you would regret losing  I have a pair of Costa Del Mar sunglasses and I always use retainers on them when out on the water.

My dive master friend also tells me that he finds a lot of wallets and phones. We sell cases like the Dry Doc or Pelican Cases that are specific for these personal items that you definitely don’t want getting wet or ending up at the bottom of the river.

    I have seen many flip flops, 2 pairs of prescription glasses, a wallet, and a digital camera bite it in 3 years… not mine just people I was with… well the camera was mine.

    Ropes and clips, dry boxes, paddle leases, and glasses cords… definitely good things to have.

    If you have boxes and clips to fasten the stuff to your boat like I do… and you still lose a camera… like I did… well… you learn. Some lessons are hard… you have to use the stuff to make it work ;-p

    Last time around I got a waterproof camera and floating strap in florescent orange… my guess is that will fix the prob… taking it out of the case 30 times per trip had just gotten too annoying and I got lax. Sometimes is just better to pay extra for the RIGHT solution.

    P.S. Keep your cords short.. if you have 3 dry bags and you tip… you don’t want to be getting all tangled up in them… short cords… and clips.
