    Do Their Job

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I like the thinner size/lower bulk over some other styles, and the small rubber tips fit on both narrow and bulky sunglasses pretty easily. The square part for adjusting length is made of rubber so it shouldn't ding lenses if it hits them. The rubber ends don't go onto the sunglasses very far so they don't contact your head. The only downside is since they go straight out off the sunglasses, they make the arms longer, so they need to be taken off when you put your sunglasses in most cases.

    They keep your glasses on your face!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have owned several pairs of Chums over the years and of all the different models that I have tried, they all have one thing in common: they keep your glasses on your face. I use them for climbing, hiking and especially anytime I am on the river, be it whitewater rafting or just tubing the Weber. These things are life savers, especially on multi day trips when you would be S.O.L. if you lost your sunglasses. I like the low bulk design of the 3mm Sunglass retainers, they are my favorite model that I have tried.

    Not the biggest fan

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    I have had retainers or Krokies before. I wasn't too fond of them in the past but I thought I would give them another try. I think i just have too much thick hair for these. They work great when I pull my hair up out of the way. Do the job perfectly but when my hair is down it is more of a hassle for me. I ordered the canyon orange color which is a cute color. I really really wish they would work for me because these are great for not loosing your glasses!

    don't loose your fancy glasses

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Hate loosing your fancy sunglasses because they fell off your face while you were getting too extreme? problem solved with good ole' chums. Get them in whatever color you fancy. Very worthy investment.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I never thought I'd be the guy wearing a retainer strap on my sunglasses, but after using this for a while I'll never go back. It keeps my glasses from falling in the river while fishing and is long enough to fit over the bill of my baseball cap (which can't be said of other types of retainers I've tried). I also really like the thin diameter cord, which provides a low-key look.

    Function!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I use these for river trips, ski touring, and if I'm outside shooting photos with polarized sunglasses so I can take them off without losing them or dropping them on rocks/dirt/gravel/pavement to review images on screen. I finally dropped enough sunglasses, and had to do something about it.

    The cotton ones were always drenched in sweat (really not ideal for skiing), and pretty bulky behind my ears. These are a little more streamlined, and they don't soak up the sweat. Good stuff.
