In 1983, CHUMS® founder Mike Tagget sought a simple way to keep his sunglasses on his head and out of the Colorado River. A few years and several prototypes later, the right design was found and the world’s Best Selling Original Cotton retainer was born.

In the last 30 years, CHUMS® has grown and evolved from our humble beginnings with a few sewing machines in Hurricane, Utah, to a recognized broad line manufacturer in the Outdoor and Safety Accessory markets, while still proudly manufacturing in Hurricane, Utah, USA.
