Works, but...
The nose guard works as intended, but keep in mind the following.

1) It straps onto your glasses via a small velcro strap. Be sure there is adequate room to tie the strap onto the frame of your glasses above the nose before you buy this product.

2) The Beko nose guard just hangs freely from the velcro strap. Gravity holds it in place. I haven't worn it in high winds yet, but I can see where it could potentially flop around on your face.

3) It's very difficult to get the glacier glasses back in the carrying case with the nose guard attached. Unfortunately it was very difficult to attach the nose guard to my glasses, so I don't ever remove them. I'm looking for a soft sided velvet type of pouch in which to carry them.
