The 3.99 stainless steel jobs from Walgreen's have a black cotton neck lanyard that you wear and let the nipper hang either inside or out of fishing jacket.

3 or 4 years running and I haven't lost the tool and it's still sharp. It's not as 'cool' as the one with the Orvis logo on the zinger but I haven't lost it either.

I'm happy with some things regardless who made them or where.

Hey Ard,
My zinger is a cheepo Cabela's bottom end with a pin-on attachment. I pinned it to the inside of my vest, made a hole just big enough to get the end through and attached my nipper. I was only trying to reduce the snaggy stuff that catches line from the outside of my vest, but it sounds like this might cure your lost nipper problem, too.
