Sizing

Here’s how it works—

Our kits come in three sizes: Small, Medium, and Large. Each kit has two bands, slightly varied in size, like this:


The size is determined by the width of the bottom of your nose (you’ll measure from the widest part of one nostril to the other).

WHY TWO BANDS?

Based on feedback we’ve gotten from our test phase users, we’ve learned a couple things. One is that most people can fit comfortably within a range of sizes, and like to try out at least two before deciding which works best for them. Something else we’ve noticed is that many of our users prefer to have two different sizes for different activities: one for exercise and one for sleeping, or one for their gym routine and another to wear under goggles or a faceplate. Plus, sometimes it’s just nice to have an extra option. Variety is the spice of life, as they say.

HIGH IMPACT ACTIVITIES OR GOGGLE SPORTS?

If you’re wearing Intake for high-impact activity, or in a sport that requires goggles or a faceplate, we recommend sizing down. A smaller size band will create less pull on the adhesive tabs, making the band more likely to stay put.

SLEEP OR LOW IMPACT ACTIVITES

If you’ll primarily be using Intake for sleep or lower-impact activities (for instance, a moderate gym set), we recommend choosing your normal size or even sizing up—the larger sized bands are less convex, meaning they’ll pull your nostrils open wider and allow greater airflow. However, this also means they’ll pull harder on the adhesive tabs, meaning you’ll potentially get less run time out of the tabs.
