Octopus made waves in the free-diving community when it debuted its original nose clip in 2016. Now, they’re back and better than ever. Its new nose clip is made with an unbreakable carbon composite, making it the lightest and most ergonomic on the market.


Twenty percent smaller than the original, the new Octopus Carbon is designed with slighter noses in mind. It’s made with anti-slip elastomer pads to guarantee a tighter grip, but, at only 6 grams, it still feels like there’s nothing there. The design prevents leakage, while also ensuring perfect equalization and less drag than typical nose clips. It also comes with a mounted neck leash so you can remove while not underwater without worrying about it falling off.


While not practical for those with an extra large schnoz, it should fit any normal-sized nose just fine. The stylish design currently comes in six colors: white, grey, red, lime, light blue and deep blue.


The Octopus Carbon Nose Clip is a bit on the pricier side, with expected retail set at $50. Get in early and you can snag it at a steep discount. First shipments will begin in July, so head to the website to check out more information on features and how to order.
