Great Product!

I bought my original chums glass strap about 20 years ago, recently I noticed the strap was starting to fall apart, didn’t know what brand it was, but looked at a tag at the end of the strap to find the name. These lasted longer that I could have imagined, I ordered two of them so I could put them on my second pair of sunglasses. These are incredible, I would highly recommend them.

Thank you for taking the time to leave such a positive review for our Chums Original glass strap! We are thrilled to hear that it has lasted you 20 years. Thank you for being such a loyal customer.


Very nice and fits well. My favorite color

Thank you for the review!

Best Retainers

I've been using Chums originals since the 1990s after trying all of them out there, including the librarian types. I have an artificial eye and don't like bifocals so I use three types of glasses: regular, prescription polarized sunglasses, and prescription readers. I'm always wearing one with another around my neck with Chums. I recently discovered Chums makes the original style with smaller openings to hold my glasses tighter, more secure. I bought two. It's a huge pain when I lose them. Other types loosen. Chums DON'T. Great product.

Thank you for taking the time to review, David! We love that the Chums Original has been helping you hang on since the 90s. It means a lot for us to hear!
