I am a 65 year old male who has used large tan Breath Right nose strips every night for 3 years. I was looking to save money and purchased a small box of large tan Clear Passage strips to try before ordering in bulk. They are considerably less expensive. The "new" ones stay on both sides of the nose which according to other reviews was a problem before redesign. The problem now is the solid flexible band inside the adhesive strip which pulls the nostrils open. It is much smaller than BR strips and does not have the pull of BR. I get some relief but no where near what I get from BR. Here's hoping the manufacturer comes up with something less expensive than BR that works.

Sticking my nose into the debate, I've tried brands that worked. For me, there's no difference between this Clear Passage and a placebo. Your results may vary. I have two issues with this product.
First, although "large" it isn't large enough for my schnoz so it simply can't do it's job. I'm not sure that the tension created by the spine would have been enough anyway even if it were larger.
The adhesive doesn't stick. Now, you need to be careful here. Some products use an adhesive that seems to become one with your skin and removing it can hurt and if done too quickly they can actually peel skin. And even if done slowly they irritate enough to eventually lead to sore skin. Others do better at finding the balance. But you'll never have irritation problems with this product because it will conveniently come off by itself except sometimes at the tips where it might hold on for dear life, but only at the tips and not always. Not that coming off in the middle of the night will have any effect on how well it works anyway.
Another thing about adhesive, it is either going to stick to your skin or stick to stuff on your skin, like greasy skin stuff. So you really need to wash your nose and really dry the skin for the adhesive to do what it's supposed to do. This is true for every product except this one because this won't stick anyway.
I also find it amusing that they put "drug free" on the description. Like this is a feature of just their product or you went looking for this sort of product with fear in your heart that you'd be exposed to some sort of drug. They think we're idiots I suppose.
