The Shaman nose clips by Smiley are our favorite kayaking nose clips. There's no spring, just a stiff wire that bends as you pinch the nose clips tight on your nose. This wire holds the nose clips as tight as you set them, and you can shape the wire to fit your nose. The leash is sized to attach to a chin strap on your helmet, skull cap, etc. For most kayakers, these nose clips stay on better than any other.
