NipGuards are a quirky product that 99% of the population may never need. Patented and launched in 1999, NipGuards revolutionized the market for protection against painful nipple chaffing and abrasion.
Prio to NipGuards, endurance athlete would commonly experience nipple chaffing on extended workouts as a result from dried sweat and body salts acting like sandpaper between the chest and the shirt (or wetsuit). This painful phenomenon was amplified if the workout occurred in foul weather conditions like rain, heat, snow, heavy winds or high humidity. For most athletes nipple chaffing was limited to mild yet painful stinging sensation - with an intensely painful "surprise" often being felt for the first time in the shower after the workout. More serious, openly bleeding abrasions on the tip of the nipple were not uncommon.
Prior to NipGuards, a variety of make-shift solutions proved mostly ineffective. Bandages or tape that adhere to the chest would repeatedly fall off due to sweat or chest hair ruining the adhesive.
NipGuards were designed and patented (by marathon runners) as a foolproof solution to prevent nipple chafing and abrasion without the need for reapplication during a workout and without staining shirts. In fact NipGuards are 100% guaranteed to work in the most gruelling tests of human endurance and in the most extreme weather conditions.
