Your breathable, water resistant mainstay
Have you seen a lot of those blue medical-looking masks around? We have, too. But not all are created equal. There are over 20 different testing standards, some much better than others. Our Elastic Loop Three Layer carry-around masks are tested to the highest level European Medical Standard (Type II-R under the EN14683 protocol) and water resistant.
These are the lightest weight mask most breathable mask we offer. They're best to carry-around in your pocket while on an errand or out for a walk. They don't fit as precisely to all points of your face like a respirator - so they are best for activities on the go when you need enhanced breathability but want something much more protective than cotton. Water resistant and designed for comfort.
+ Outer: Poly non-woven fabric
+ Center: Electrostatic melt blown cloth
+ Inner: Poly non-woven fabric
Made from melt blown non-woven polypropylene. What is that you ask? Non-woven poly is a material that resembles organic fabric, but has much, much smaller filaments. Where a strand of hair might have a diameter of 100 microns and cotton 30 microns, non-woven poly is just 3 microns. It's made by heating plastic, pulling it through tiny holes and pressing the strands into a flat sheet. The middle layer is then charged to create static cling which helps attract particles and creates higher filtration efficiency.
Incredibly light weight and breathable. Like a feather on your face, except it doesn't tickle!
