    Default Face Mask Buying Thread

    Well since this is going to be a mandatory thing in Calgary, I know I personally have some questions and figured others might.

    Where is everyone getting their masks (assuming non-disposable) and what are the good ones, bad one or otherwise?

    Being an eyeglasses wearer, are there any that fit better with glasses? Don't fog up as easily?

    I was thinking of this one because it can double duty later when working under the house or whatever, but I am not sure how it will do with glasses.

    Don’t buy the ones with a regulator valve. Mine kept coming off when washing.

    As for eyeglasses: wear mask first; pinch nose bridge; wear glasses on top of mask

    It’s fine for me and no fogging

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    Did the under armour pre-order... probably will be here late August

    They come in different sizes, cooling effect material, water resistant, designed for sports so hopefully easy to breath through

    I have some in the style tirebob posted I bought for festivals last year but they don't fit my head well (granted I have a huge head and most things don't fit).

    I've just been running the disposable ones still, grabbed a 200 pack back at the beginning of the year before things got crazy and we're still barely halfway through it and use them always.

    I should look at reusable ones but with my luck I'll take them in to wash and forget them like the reusable bags then I'm SOL. Having a pack in the glovebox is just so handy... Prob just gonna stay with disposables since they're ~25-50 cents a piece anyways. I can skip out on Starbucks once a month to cover how much I use masks.

    The weddingstar ones are a bit too small for my big head.

    I plan to pick up some gaitor style masks. Between my face and beard typical masks do not fit and are stupid uncomfortable.

    Had the same issue and shocking as it is, I recently cut my beard back to stubble level! lol! Now I should fit a mask no problem.

    I just ordered the AstroAI one. I figure if it isn't what I am hoping for in daily use, I can use it as a work mask when grinding of doing dusty shit.

    I picked up a couple from Vistaprint https://www.vistaprint.ca/masks/ . Decent reviews and have a removable filter. Ordered them yesterday and at the moment they said they won't be here until the 20th of August.

    Weddingstar ones look good but hard to breath because of the soft fabric inside that gets stuck to your nose or mouth when you breath. I got 4 for the fam and we all found them hard to breath in. My personal favorite is the vented ones with replaceable filters in the first post cause they don't stick to your face and very comfortable when breathing and talking. 2nd choice would be just plain disposable ones that lots of places are selling now.

    I would like to know too. Currently just rocking the disposable ones but seeing how we are gonna have to wear them for awhile, might just pick up a batch in diff colors so I can match my t-shirt or something at work to keep it semi-fashionable.

    Any stores you can walk in and grab some?

    The reviews on the Wedding star ones on Amazon aren't that great so Idk

    I bought the 3 pack of cloth masks from Costco that had the dog on the box, pretty good quality for 12 or 13 bucks.

    I had 2 of these and they will need filters.

    Pro: The neck strap reduce stress on ear loop. Ample space in front of your mouth so your don't sound as muffled as you speak.

    Con: filter quality differs depends on provider and it's disposable. Mask is useless without them and they are are more expensive than disposable masks. Valves also wear out easily.

    I am not thinking about what I am breathing in as much as not spitting on people. The filter aspect is more about if I am working in dusty shit but yeah I do get your point.

    Anything that goes around the ears is grossly uncomfortable, plus as soon as you take it off in the car it has to sit somewhere where it can potentially get dirty. I figured I would go the neck warmer route. Anytime I need a mask, can just pull it up from my neck to cover my face, then drop it back down when I leave the store or wherever I am. These guys have a sale on, 5 for 20$. That's what I just ordered. Can wear a new one every day or two, then wash them in the laundry every week or 2.

    I thought these types of masks with the discharge valves were basically defeating the purpose of wearing the mask because it still allows you to exhale your moist air just like you were breathing without the mask. Seeing as the purpose of the masks are not to stop things from getting in but droplets from getting out I was under the impression these type of masks were not recommended? That being said, I've been wrong plenty of times before so maybe I am wrong here too?

    My wife sews so she's been making surgical style cloth masks for family and friends. I have a few Sask Rough Riders ones I have been wearing but I will probably get her to flange some up from an old dress shirt if I am forced to go downtown.
