About Chums:

In 1983, a Colorado River guide sought a simple way to keep his sunglasses out of the river. Through this innovative idea the Original Cotton Chum was born. More than thirty years later, Chums is now a global brand that offers a wide range of outdoor products and apparel. Chums’ mantra is simple: provide fun, quality products to enjoy while at work or play. Chums: Helping You Hang On Since 1983.
