Elise Wolf
Excellent for easy wear, on-off glasses use

I have worn the tail version of these for at least 15 years. I wear readers around my neck all day. I love the cotton, soft feel, and that they are cotton, not fake fiber. I love that they are so secure my glasses have never come off the straps, regardless of even getting them caught on something. In contrast to others here, I love that they do not hang real close up to my face, but drape down. I rarely tighten them onto my face, but that is possible. Only wish is for them to not fade so quickly.

Thank you for taking the time to review, Elise. We appreciate the feedback and love to hear that you've been rocking the No-Tail for at least 15 years!

Scott Vollstedt
37 years of Chums.

Have been using Chums since 1986 and only chums. Mike Taggett gave me my first pair when I was rowing baggage boat for Grand Canyon Dories. Love the soft cotton feel and easy to wash. My favorites are the “no tail” but have used all styles. Best thing is they work. If you’ve ever flipped a raft it’s nice to know your glasses are going to still be around and not at the bottom of the river. More than once they have saved my expensive glasses. ⚡️⚡️😎⚡️⚡️

Thank you so much for taking the time to review, Scott. We love hearing how well our products have served you throughout your adventures! We appreciate your loyal support.

These aren't going to keep your glasses on

These are not as described. The strap does not adjust to a small enough size to really secure glasses on your head. Even at the smallest size, the strap is still loose and floppy around my head. If you need your glasses to stay put, don't buy this. I have an average size head and an above average amount of hair. I will be trying to return these.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We're sorry to hear that the No Tail Adjustable didn't meet your expectations. We'll make sure to pass on your feedback to our team for future improvements. If you have not already, please reach out to our customer service team and we'll be happy to assist you.

My favorite, but could be improved

Ever since finding the No-Tail version, I don't have that "fly landing on the back of my neck" feeling I got with the standard retainer. However, when will this product be made in UV-fade-resistant polyester. Cotton is comfortable, but my retainers always look grunge after use and it's not solely from contact with sweat and dirt. The cotton fades horribly and turns brownish. As I will tend to sweat while wearing my sunglasses, these retainers do a great job of keeping my 100% plastic Oakleys from sliding down my nose (no rubber as nose pads or temple sleeves). However, the the cotton does absorb the sweat. When you take off the glasses to towel off, putting them back on wet feels a little gross. Polyester or any other wicking synthetic might be a nice up-charge option for this retainer.
