RUNGUARDS NIPGUARD™ :: Chafed nipples are no laughing matter, at least not to anyone who has ever had them. RunGuards NipGuard™ are the patented way to prevent chafing from ever happening during long training runs or on race day. Soft, adhesive tabs stay put, even during triathlons or on the bike, and protect you from the terrible pain of chafing. 10 pairs per pack.
Features & Benefits:
Prevents painful nipple chafing and abrasion for endurance athletes or long training runs
Each pair is disposable good for one workout-typically a long training run or competition
Guaranteed not to fall off until you decide to take them off
If you are looking here, then you have either found out first hand why you need these, or are lucky enough to have someone point you in this direction before you did. What people say about these is true. You may get a funny look from people who don't know why you are wearing these, but they can save you from a LOT of pain. I wear them any time I am running more than 6 miles, but I am sure that everyone will need to assess this for themselves. These stay put while you are running, but come off fairly easily. I have considered trying circular bandaids as a less expensive alternative, but I am just not willing to risk it.

Very good product
Very good product, I bought this after I was fed up from injuries following long runs over 70 minutes. I did not know which product I should choose, so I decided to use this one based on the reviews I read. I was very surprised to find it very effective and good in preventing injuries. It does not come off even if you sweat a lot. To remove it you should use water and you can do that in the shower you take after your run. The only thing I was wondering is why I did not use it before.....
Work great but don't look in the mirror!
The question you have to ask yourself is what comes first, fashion or function? Functionally, these work awesome. No more bloody nipples and they come off easily when you're done. However, with them on you could very likely poke someone's eye out and you will draw some funny looks from non-runners who don't get it. That said, if I'm going longer than 10k, I don't mind looking funny.

Save the nips!
These are the best things I have found to help with nipple chaffing. They look a little funny through your shirt but that is nothing compared to a bloody trail down it! If it is really humid and I sweat a lot they do fall off but that usually isn't until about mile 15-18 so they hang on for most of a marathon.
Great protection, awkward look
I like the guards for long runs, but they can look a little awkward if you are not wearing a loose shirt. Even still, they provide great protection.
If you have a problem with chaffing, especially in the hot humid weather. These actually work. Better than Body Glide.
Amazing! - Worked better than I expected
My nipples chafed really bad during a Spartan race last year, so this year I knew I had to protect my nips.
I bought this product knowing I would get wet and muddy, and expected them to come off after a few miles or obstacles. I figured even saving my nipples for a mile or two would help the chaffing. To my surprise, they stayed on the entire time! Even while swimming, dunking myself in mud, crawling under barbed wire, and sweating like a beast.
The only thing I didn't like was how visible it was under my shirt. I definitely looked like I had really large protruding nipples, but it was worth it. No chaffing, no pain, my nipples stayed happy and smooth with NipGaurds.
Sore nipples rejoice!
your nipples shouldn't suffer for those Marathons and beyond. This product absolutely eliminates the irritation associated with friction!
Works as advertised
Irritated and bleeding nipples are no fun.
Those wonderful body changes brought on by aging!
Now about any shirt causes problems when I get over a few miles.
Tried lubricants. They finally stopped working and ruin your shirts in the process.
These things stay in place, even with heavy sweating; remove easily (even with hair); and stop chafing dead.
Only downside is that it's sometimes a project getting them off the backing.
Tremendous product!! I was worried they'd fall off during my recent half-marathon, but they stayed right in place! Once I put them on at the beginning, I completely forgot about them until I needed to take them off after the race. I had chaffed nipples one time before and never want to put up with that again!
Nipple chafing will affect you no longer
if you've ever run far and had nipple chaffing to bother you, the nipguards are the perfect item for you.
NipGuard a must for guys
Highly recommend for any male runners that have sensitive skin or easily gets a skin chapped during long distance runs. I have used the nipguard during marathon training to 10k. This is better than body glide because body glide wears off by mile 6 for me.
Great Product...I use for long run usually over 90 minutes. Protects just as mentioned.
Great protection...when they stay on.
These work great...if they stay on long enough. They seem to be hit or miss, even after I follow the directions on the package. Which, were covered up by the price tag so I didn't see it the first time I used them. I used them one time and they ended up at the bottom of my shirt.

Work as Intended
These work as advertised. Don't really notice you are wearing them once one. Take a few minutes to put on and then they just work. A little pricey for a pack of 10 but hard to put a price on pain avoidance.
Solves the Chafe Problem
I live in the south where the humidity during the summer is normally over 70% making it impossible to keep dry and not chafe. I use Body Glide during the fall and winter, but in the summer, it is impossible to keep dry and not chafe. If you have ever experienced chafed nipples on a long run, then you need these. It completely eliminates the problem! By the way, I am a male runner....
Great product that eliminates any nipple chafing that could ruin a run. I've used them from sweating heavily on the treadmill to 100 mile ultras. Never failed. They stay on.
Works great even with profuse sweating.
Have used NipGuards on an 18 mile and 20 mile run. I have tried Body Glide, but after about 6 or 7 miles it wears off. The NipGuards stayed on the whole time (3-4 hours) with no chaffing. I am in Florida and sweat more than most people. NipGuards never slipped off. I do recommend them.
They do their job!
Great to prevent the chafing and bloody nipples that can be associated with men and long runs. They do what thy are supposed to.
An absolute lifesaver. Perfect for long runs. Put them on when you're dry as they won't stick when you're sweaty. No stains on the shirts and no bloody chafed nipples.
My husband finds these to be invaluable in keeping him comfortable on long bike rides, particularly in the summer. He is a heavy sweater and chafing of his nipples is almost a certainty, so the protection of NipGuards allows him to ride more often.
Have issues with chaffing, Nip Guards work great and are much better than band aids. To be most effective you must put them on before you begin to sweat...........
A must for male runners
Wow. No nipple pain. No Bleeding. Easy Application. Stayed on in 80 degree 100 humity weather for 13.1 miles. Love them.

Works great and easy to use!

A must for long runs
An absolute must for long runs. I haven't tried body glide but find no reason to change directions.
Will buy again! Great purchase
Husband could not find a shirt/fabric that didn't cause pain. These are perfect! Can't see them through shirts, easy to put on and take off! Have lasted through 13-16 mile runs
Worth the marginal extra price relative to bandaids
Glorified bandaids but they are definitely better. They don't stick to your chest hair so they don't come off as easy as some bandaids and no pain removing afterward.
bloodless distance runnung
covers only the necessary area, so as to avoid having to shave around the area.
Don't buy these
I sweat a lot when running and they don't stay on for longer than 45 minutes . I would not recommend this product if you are a heavy sweater.
Does a great job protecting nips as advertised. Never loses its stick.
