Works Great
July 15, 2009

I use this Sunglass Retainer when I go whitewater rafting and it does a great job keeping my glasses on. I actually fell out of the raft and I had them secured so tight that I didn't loose my sunglasses. I would recommend this product.

Retain Your Sunglasses
May 04, 2011

After losing a pair of sunglasses while hiking across a river, I decided to by some retainers. Now I don't have to worry about my sunglasses falling off my head or having to hook them on my shirt. The material is stretchy so they can fit over wide plastic sunglasses. One thing I did not like is that you cannot choose the color. What's up with that?

Pros: Ease of use

Great Product & Great Price
July 21, 2009

Much tighter hold on glasses than retainers I could find locally. Also beat the local price and shipping was much faster than I expected.

It's very soft and my 8year old son loves it. I wish I would have be able to choose the color though.


Just did not fit my glasses.
August 07, 2009

I spent nearly two months looking for replacement "Chums" for kayaking, and found nothing until I saw these advertised here. I bought a pair a couple of weeks ago, and wouldn't you know, today I come across an Army Navy store that carries both the normal thin style as well as these sold on Altrec. I have full size normal eyeglass frames (not sunglasses) I wear 100% of the time, and these are way too large even for those glasses. These will be going back soon. Not one outfitting store in the area other than A&N, had these retainers and are the only brand I have used for nearly 12 years. I am somewhat surprised you do not have the option to pick a size, or color. It was worth the time to look nonetheless.

Soft, comfortable behind your ears
September 01, 2009

I would give these 5 stars, except it's not possible to make glasses holders without extra bulk behind your ears. That said, these are a very soft material, and as comfortable as you're going to get. They hold on very tightly to the ends of the glasses and don't slip at all.
