The Purple Turtle NozKon solar nose shield is the ultimate in all-weather protection from the sun. It is equally effective whether trekking across a desert, sunbathing on a beach or playing cricket all day. It’s particularly useful for winter sports where UV radiation is reflected by the snowy whiteness and for sailing where the sun is reflected by the water and the sails. And as an added bonus for sailors – if your glasses fall in the water – the NozKon will keep them afloat!
The NozKon is made from lightweight, pliable foam with a built in strap for attaching it to your glasses – simply wrap it around and secure it with the velcro fastening. Some people like to paint them different colours and you can even match it to your skin tone by using liquid foundation. The NozKon can also be invaluable if you need to cover up after surgery or skin cancer on your nose.
The Nozkon is available in two sizes – Standard and Large.
The Standard is fine for most people and measures 6cm without adjusting the velcro strap. If you need to, it can stretch to a further 1-2cm depending on the thickness of the glasses frame that you are attaching the velcro to.
The Large may be better if extra coverage is needed and it also has a longer strap for wrapping around large glasses or googles. It measures 6cm also, without adjusting the strap but can stretch to an extra 3-4 cm depending on the thickness of the glasses frame.
If it is too large it can be trimmed to size with a pair of scissors across the trim line and there is a soft pad on the underside of the Nozkon for comfort! Even better!
