Many years ago John Bolen out of Illinois produced lanyards of superior quality. His competitors copied all of his designs and innovative thinking and sent them off to China to be produced with inferior cord. They eventually ran him out of business.

I met a nice fella from Kentucky several years ago and asked him to produce a lanyard for me similar to what John made for me many, many years ago. Yes, they are more expensive than many on the market, but you’ll appreciate the design and quality if you give one of these a try.
