This is a classic ripoff of the more well known and expensive Croakie eyeglass holder. Made of neoprene, a synthetic material which has an under layer that is somewhat rubbery it works especially well with eyeglasses that have thinner arms such as glasses with wire frames or standard sized glasses. Assuming the glasses have thin to average size arms, they slide over the arms with little effort and can be placed on the head because they stretch with ease. My husband has been wearing these when exercising and running. His eyewear stays in place even during the the most strenuous workouts and he likes them because they stay secure with absolutely no slippage. So how do these stand up to the immensely popular Croakies? I wore eyeglasses when I worked out instead of contact lenses. Normally I wouldn't do that, but my glasses stayed put. Like Croakies, if you work up a sweat these get damp but the neoprene absorbs a lot of moisture. Even on my smaller head these were adjustable...
Great! My glasses have not fallen off one time! And because I now look like such a nerd, girls are finally leaving me alone!
I did not know whether to purchase Croakies or Chums so at the price I ordered one of each. I feel I can give an educated review now. Chums are by far the best in my opinion. To start they are easy to slip on my eyeglasses right from the packaging where the Crokies are a struggle. I had to insert a pair of closed scissors to stretch the Croakies enough so that I could get them started on the ear pieces of my eyeglasses. Secondly I wanted an eyeglass keeper that would keep my eyeglasses on when I was working and keeps them from slipping down my nose. Chums gets an A+ and Croakies gets a B-. I could not move my Crokies far enough up my earpieces to accomplish this and the Chums allow me to adjust them to where they will firmly hold my eyeglasses at the top of my nose or loosely do the same. Another A+ for Chums. Did I mention that I received my Chums 5 days sooner from Amazon than my Croakies that I ordered on Ebay? Well.....you get the idea.
