The history of Sounder Goods and the creation of The Original Leather Sunglass Strap

In the summer of 2009 on a trip to Nantucket for the Figawi sailing race our founder Chris found himself looking for a higher quality, more durable sunglass strap. Unable to find a suitable alternative to the neoprene "Croakies" varieties he set out to create his own. The concept seemed simple, why not a leather sunglass strap?

Once back on the mainland Chris began learning the leather craft. Fortunate to gain the mentorship of Frank Clegg, countless nights and weekends were spent in Frank's shop working on what would become the first leather sunglass strap.

Now over 10 years, many product iterations, and hundreds of 5-star reviews later we are proud to offer the finest sunglass straps in the world, made right here in Massachusetts. We hope Sounders Original Leather Sunglass Straps serve you well in your pursuits of sport & leisure.

American Alligator Classic Sounders

I recently received my American Alligator Classic Sounders and I was extremely impressed. The strap is a dark rich brown and is easily the classiest straps I've ever used or seen. What might be hard to notice from the pictures is that this strap is double-sided leather with gator on the outside and what appears to be their chestnut Classic on the inside that touches your neck. This is a very nice touch to this premium strap and makes it more comfortable to wear as well. Sometimes its tough to find a strap that looks appropriate with your premium sunnies but this compliments my Mcqueen Persols very well. Beyond the fantastic craftsmanship, its also great to be able to support an American-made product that provides unparalleled customer service. These were actually out of stock during the holiday rush and Chris was kind enough to make me two pairs anyways if I was willing to be patient. It was definitely worth the wait and I will definitely be back to buy more straps.

Thanks so much for your review, Frank. Glad to have been able to make these for you. Thanks for all of the support! -Chris

Great product!

Looked all over for a leather sunglass straps a was very pleased to find your site. Great quality and customer service.

Alligator Strap is Outstanding!

Recieved my alligator strap along with a Leather Strap (Hunter) and I will say the craftmanship on both products is outstanding. There maybe other leather straps on the market but Chris has a far superior product. The alligator strap is awesome with my Wayfarer's. I just ordered the Cotton and Leather Strap (blue and white) and look forward to recieving.

Thanks so much for your review, Ashley! Glad you are enjoying the gator anchors they really are special. Hope your summer has great. -Chris
