    I don’t use sunglasses (I have them in my glasses lens). Do the sunglasses fall out? Would you need a small snap closure or a piece of Velcro?

      sunglasses stay in pretty snuggly, im not sure if your glasses have some weight to them, but ive seen people put an elastic loop at the end with a button if you would like to add a little closure for safe keeping
