I will never put anything else on my sunglasses

Good Service

I’ve used Chums Originals for years. The online order process was super simple and delivery was very quick. Nice job Chums.

My Favorite for Years

I started using this very product in the mid 80s and have been using them ever since. They work and look great. Chums have gone everywhere that I have gone.


About a month ago I purchased a Chums retainer for my fishing sunglasses and it didn't fit the frame. So after a phone conversation with Andrew, thinking that I would have to return it, he said "to keep the retainer and he would send me a larger size." Not only did he send me a replacement, he also sent me two different styles, a total of three retainers! Not only did Andrew solve my problem of a proper fit, he went above and beyond my expectations with his excellent service making sure that I would be a satisfied customer! This is why Chums has been around for over 30 years and with quality products, free shipping and excellent service, they're not going anywhere! I highly recommend this company which resides here in the USA.


It seems like these little lovelies have been a part of life ever since they first appeared in the market. Then as now, an instant "must have"-- especially for RayBan Wayfarers: a match made in heaven. I have been through a fair number of these (the original), even a couple found in very unexpected places in the mountains. Chums. Go figure.
