MYOG U/L Sunglass Tether

UltraLight gear screams simplicity and utility. Extra features just add unnecessary weight, so we avoid them like the plague. This Make Your Own Gear project is about as uncomplicated and inexpensive as they come, and it works great too!



Start with a flat piece of cord - I like to use this type I get from zpacks.com, but you can use anything you have. Cut it to about 26" long, then singe the ends.



For the end attachments, I tie a modified taut-line hitch. The difference is that you only wrap around the cord once in the first step to keep the knot as small as possible.



Just slip the loops over the ends of your sunglasses, snug up and you're done. A .10 ounce super simple project that will last you for years and years.

  1. Perfect timing. I just ordered a pair of NATIVE Versa sunglasses, pretty sure they come with some tethers, but more than likely not as simple or light as your solution. I'll give this a go.

    I think I got the compass from AGG, but it's been a couple years and I don't think they carry them any more. Good eye my friend!
