My bolles came with a lanyard that would suit. You'd have to see if you could get one as spare parts though.

I stumbled across these one day by accident, so I decided why not give them a try as they only cost about $20 including postage. They are recycled fly lines that these people collect from people and companies then turn them into something useful. I think that is way really sold me on them. Anyway, they seem to fit the Tonics well. I am by no means affiliated with this company.

I recently ran over my Tonics with my Golf buggy and broke the left lens. Rang tonic and to have them repaired was going to cost over $100 plus shipping and Frank from Tonic said they would ship me a new pair for $125. Received them last week and they came with a lanyard and had holes in the ends of the ear pieces so they must be listening and the new models have this facility. For your information
Cheers Blackpearl.

I like the idea of the glasses safety straps made from recycled fly line. Good for the environment and creates further employment within the fishing industry. Clever idea and kind of goes with the whole fishing theme :wink:
