On a recent bareboat charter I did through the Abaco Islands with PMY managing editor Eileen Mansfield and art director Aimée Colon, Mansfield had a common boating accident: While bending over to pick up a mooring, her sunglasses flew off her face and into the not-so-deep Caribbean Sea. She threw on a snorkel and mask, poked around on the ocean floor, and returned to the surface empty-handed. But if she had had her glasses hooked up to a Chums Neofloater retainer, this probably never would have happened.
The Neofloater is made of neoprene and molded polyethelyne foam, so that if your glasses fall into the water, they’ll float. Even better, its vibrant red color makes it more visible in water. It’s also water-resistant and made of quick-dry, cushioned, colorfast fabric that washes easily with mild soap and water. Simply slide the ends of the Neofloater onto the ends of your glasses, and you’re good to go.
The Neofloater retails for $9.99. Call the company to order or to find a retailer near you.
