Copper Life

This mask has now risen above Athleta after some additional use by both masks. It has all of the same features as the Athleta mask, but edgges it out because if fits more consistently over my nose. Athleta does edge out the mask in terms of cost and the colors available in the pack, but this one does not look too shabby itself

Airinum

I purchased this at the beginning of the pandemic, and was on back order until August
All the reviews point to this being the best one on the market. It's expensive as heck.

I originally tried to buy this one in Japan, at a MOMA Design store, in early Feb, and they said that the size was too small for me and took it to the back. Looking back I think that they just wanted it for themselves. I think about this sometimes.

N95 filters are included, but replacements are expensive

All ratings on this item are assumptions, but it costs a lot, so it has to be good, right? Right?

Cotopaxti

Received these on pre-order after a very long wait. The splash of color is pretty lit, ngl. It fits better than the Athleta masks, and has all of the same capilities.

Athleta

This mask just arrived, but has quickly risen to be arguable my go-to mask. The price is great, it includes various colors, has adjustable ear straps, a nose wire, and is very breathable. There is not much more we can ask for out of a mask because it is an innanimate object so we cannot be friends with it.

7/06 Update: This does not stay on my nose as easily as I would have liked, thus the demotion to the 4th best mask (due to Cotopaxti edging it out)

Adidas

Filter sold separate, but there is a compartment for it. Good fit for me, but I imagine it will not fit everyone. But also, I look sporty as heck, so that's a win. Just don't ask me to go for a run.

Jaanuu

This mask has great jersey material on the inside and is comfotable. I have not worn it outside, but it has potential to enter the rotation. This company usually makes clothing for nurses / doctors.

This mask is pretty comfortable and breathable once we have it on. This mask is also one of the first masks I purchased. Unfortunately the straps are a little short so it's hard to tie over my ears.

Purple

Very breathable and comfortable ear straps. The main knock is that it does not look cool, and almost looks like underwear. Like whitey tighty tho. On my face. Goes great with my UW gear though.

Honestly I just wanted to be like AOC, and I love my Medicare for all, but this mask is cheap AF

Banana Republic

Very comfortable and breathable. washable with adjustable over-the-ear straps and are made with a multi-layer design.
Adjustable wire at the nose for a comfortable, secure fit. Internal pocket for inserts. Right now they are my top choice! Looks good! 3-pack, multiple colors. Can apply coupons of 10-15% off. Currently avaialbe in-store

Keene

Nice looking, but they lack a nose wire and do not tightly close around the nose providing inadequate protection and fogging of classes. Canvas cotton material is somewhat stiff and does not breath well The ear adjustments are adequate. Rating 3.25 on REI’s site. (bonus REI members get a rebate of ~ 10%), no shipping if picked up from store

Will likely never use. It's like a company tried to make a cool looking tech mask, without any of the materials, and ended up with this foam contraption that probably will bring more air in because there is a vent without a filter

This mask is a worse version of the RPF Face Shield from the same brand. I need to start looking at all of the instagram Ads. I saw this Ad proabbly 100 times and they finally got to me. I'm weak

Disposable Mask

Definitely reused these more times than I care to admit. But what's a guy to do?

Official - 5 Pack

Will likely never use. This is literally just a piece of cloth that doesnt even fit well. It's borderline disrespectful that they would even ship this. My mom said she would call their customer service for me.

Almost impossible to breath in, so much that I threw it away rather than give it to someone. I know I should have not done this, but no one would want to wear this. Like why would I have though a jean company would have a good mask? You cannot even find the link on their website anymore, probably because it sucks so much
