Best sealing mask I've found, but not under the eyes, N95 layer is extra work
I like this mask better than the others I've tried. SEAL It seals better, but not perfectly. The area under my eyes still vents breath up under my glasses, and allows outside air in through the gap. I can stop it with a couple of fingers pressing the mask down just below each eye, but that's not really a good solution. I modified it to tighten up the straps a lot, and that helped. With very tight straps, I can mouth breathe through the N95 layer no hands. Unfortunately, augmenting the seal with one finger under each eye is the only way I can breathe through my nose without losing the seal. MAINTENANCE Washing the mask isn't too bad, I do it with liquid soap by hand, and line dry, but putting the N95 layer back in place is tricky; although it's getting easier with practice. I would recommend labeling the N95 fabric on one side when you receive it, to help avoid reversing the orientation. Since this layer can't be washed or disinfected, accidentally putting the formerly outside facing side toward the inside would be a bad idea. Also, I hope the nose wire is very resilient. I try to minimize the amount of bending, but, it's not practically possible to maintain the shape of the nose wire while turning the mask inside out, as I must do each time I put the N95 layer back in. SIZING I measured my face according to the directions. I was in the top end of the small range so that's what I ordered. I later got a medium and it fits much better, although the straps are even looser and needed a bigger modification to tighten them up. How about a catch on the straps so they don't need to be pushed up over the head? I frequently wear my helmet into stores and putting the mask on over it isn't easy.
I'd only change one thing...
It fits my face perfectly and I receive compliments on it... which is telling in these weird times. The only thing that I'd change is the strap type from being over the top and back of the head to behind the ears. If you only need the mask when entering public facing establishments, donning and doffing it over the head with glasses becomes... cumbersome. I followed these masks from the moment Kitsbow announced they were pivoting to make them and of course wanted one of my own. I waited until the rush to fill the first responders and frontline workers was filled, then ordered my own. The lower strap isn't really snug, though I even bought one size down from what was recommended and the top strap can be a little tight over my head. I guess I had gotten so accustomed to wearing the disposable masks with ear loops that this one took some fit fiddling and adjustment.
Kitsbow Quality. Kitsbow Design. So So Good.
This is the only PPE mask I wear now.The materials are top notch. The fit is excellent. The nose bridge is fantastic and doesn’t fog up my glasses like so many other cheaper PPE options. And straps are all-day comfortable! Leave it to Kitsbow to create the best gear even in times of absolute chaos.
Well made with good fit, INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO INSERT FILTER
This is an excellent mask, well-made, comfortable and attractive. The nose clip is comfortable and works well. The filter is a bit hard to insert, but after trying a few different ways, here is how to get it in: Grip the far end of the filter between your thumb and index finger, insert the filter a little way into the mask, then with your other hand, pull mask over filter until the far end of the filter is at the end of the mask. The mask will be bunched up. Remove your hand from inside the mask and grip the mask and filter at the far end from outside. Then pull the mask back over the filter. Putting the mask over the filter, rather than trying to insert the filter into the mask is the easiest way to get it in.
What I think of the mask
Comfortable. Would prefer ear loops As an option as it is a pain in the a.. to get on and off with a hat or cap on. I like the layers for safety but can’t get the HEPPA filter to sit properly and thus I am concerned that I am being protected and protecting others. Company emailed advice to turn mask inside out, didn’t work. How about a slot on each side or one on top to insert the filter?
Yep, frustrating getting that filter back in... we've all been there. Leaving it out, you're protecting others (two layers of fabric will keep the virus, if you have it, from landing on them). Putting it in, you're protecting yourself from others. Then you've got to perfect the inside-out technique. We haven't found a better design yet, but we're working on it!
