Croakies 2018

Croakies, manufacturer of industry-leading outdoor retention products, strengthens its 2018 model line with new prints and patterns to support its eyewear retainer, belt, dog collar and leash, and lanyard product collections.

With inspiration drawn from the brand’s mountain-town roots and its strong ties to outdoor recreation, whether on water or land, Croakies’ latest collection of prints leans on the use of bold colors and rich patterns, delivering truly unique designs geared for “Life’s Everyday Adventures.”

Whether featuring a climbing rope-inspired pattern, ski iconography print hearkening back to the “Hot Dog” era, floral designs including the state flower of Montana, or new prints from a number of the brand’s licensed partners, Croakies’ 2018 product collection is its most bold and exciting to date.

“We always enjoy experimenting with different textures and shapes, but the challenge is how to make the product standout, given the relatively small real estate of a Croakies retainer or belt,” explains Sandra Gilson, Croakies’ Creative Services Specialist. “This year, we’ve had a lot of fun digging into the Croakies vault for inspiration; the Full Send print was inspired by Croakies’ early days in the 70s, in the ski town of Jackson, Wyoming.”

Croakies’ complete 2018 product collection will be available for sale through select retailers and through in early spring 2018.

About Croakies

Often imitated but never duplicated, the original Croakies were invented in 1977 by a local ski patrolman from Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Wyoming. Today, Croakies is still proudly headquartered in the mountains of the American West, with most of its production in Bozeman, Montana. With Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks as a backyard, the brand’s inspiration remains unchanged: to create best-in-class retention products that inspire everyday adventure and provide comfort, style, durability, and functionality to active people of all ages. For more information about Croakies and its latest product line, please visit or follow them on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter using @croakies. Croakies is part of the Hilco Vision portfolio of brands.
