    Groovy! Not just for old people!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    Just thought I'd cast my 2 cents: these are invaluable if you care about your glasses! And they're not just for old people! I've had Chums for quite a while, I think my first pair was gotten for a buck at a thrift store in Seward, still have it somewhere! I've since found one on the ground (Thanks Chums Gods!), and just bought another to pair with some new Smiths.

    These just work, cotton is nice on the skin and the piece of mind knowing you can't loose your glasses too easily, it does happen on the rivers, is worth $8.

    Pro tip: If they get gunky, use some dish soap and lather them up and slide the ring all over and they'll be just like new. Also, don't push the rubber tips on too hard, they can break the frames!

    Fun story: On the Grand last year, I managed to break the right arm of some old smiths, so I took the chum and squished it on to what was left of the arm and it worked fine. Then the other side broke, I again attached the chum to what was left and had to cinch them down a bit since these had glass lenses. Got me through another 2 river days, and a stupid hard hike up the North Kaibab! In a pinch, they can work some wonders.

    Never Lose Glasses Again

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These perform exactly as they're designed to. They hold your glasses securely on your neck, so you wont lose a pair next time you float the river.

    They're My Best Friend.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    When I go skateboarding and fall down, Chums are there.
    When I'm sailing and the seas are rough, Chums are there.


    When I'm hiking,


    When I'm biking,


    When I'm skiing uphill,



    CHUMS ARE THERE!

    If you're looking for a companion that'll always be there for you, look to Chums.

    They'll keep your glasses around through all conditions.

    A Classic

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Still the #1 standard when it comes to protecting your sunnies from hitting the deck. Many have tried to re-invent the wheel, but these suckers just keep on ticking. Cotton feels great on the temples and doesn't rip or pull at your hair and they feel even better when they are wet & cool on a hot desert day. At this price point and with such an overload of awesome colors, pretty sure you should lock and load all your sunnies with a pair of Chums! Feel free to thank me later.

    Best Idiot Straps Around

      I bought these as a gift for my girlfriend, and she loves them. She says: These cotton chums are so comfortable and cute! I don't need to worry about my glasses falling off while climbing.

      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.

      A Lifejacket for Your Sunnies

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

      Battle tested. After two straight runs down some white water on the Snake River in Jackson, WY - Chum's came out on top.

      Stylish, classy and a comfy fit makes these the best $8 you can spend. Don't hold a funeral ceremony for your favorite pair, of sunglasses that you've had since sophomore year of college.. save the heartbreak and get yourself a pair of Chum's!

      Hit me up if you're looking for some great sunglasses to pair these with. Fishing, lifestyle, biking or casual shades - I've got you covered.

      Trusty adventure sidekick

        Love these old school, classic chums. Great color variety too. I use these on the river to keep my shades safe through unknown territory. Only downside, I had a really hard time getting these to fit on my classic wayfarers, had to force them on.
