Both me and the wife have Schwalbe 29 x 2.6. Mine are Nobby Nics and Wife’s are Smart Sam.
Always wondered why I’ve had 7 punctures and the wife has had zero until today when I noticed she has K-Guard in here.

This could all be a coincidence of course and I’ve just had bad luck but anyone else used K-Guard? Are they any good?

it's just an extra layer of protective material.
Schwalbe have many many levels of protective insert to choose from...
SCHWALBE PROTECTION. BENCHMARK OF PUNCTURE PROTECTION | Schwalbe Tires North America

Unless ALL your punctures have been from sharps. My money would probably be on luck and your Mrs riding lighter/slower/more carefully/less

Can't remember the last time my GF had a puncture at all. (running tubeless single plys).
