Eye can see you.

Since it seems like well be wearing masks for awhile longer, I want to see what you all have, how it fits, and where you got it. I regularly use a 3 layer cloth mask that came free in a box of piston rings, however today Im rocking this sexy KN-95 as I sit in the clinics waiting room. Extra points for masks with wise rear end sayings, or special features such as an LED scroll. Also there are no points and no prizes.

Show me what you got!

Edit: sideways photos loving RULE!

I seen a guy at menards when this first started with the whole paint respirator thing going, looked like a drat Israeli gas mask from the gulf war. It really stuck out back then because literally no one else was wearing coverings yet.

Ditto, except it was at Costco and had purple filters. But back in late March it felt like that was what was going to be necessary. At least now the same location is finally selling 4-packs of the polyester ones instead of only having the boxes of 50 disposables.

+Scary but office-appropriate
+Magnetic clasp is suprisingly useful
+Lots of adjustment points
+Comfy

-Had to sew in my own nosewire
-Filtration probably not actually that good
-Random straps everywhere from the adjustments
-Pricey after import taxes

Fine for what I need, would get something more medical/industrial if I was sharing air with people outside work.

so i figure cobra commander probably had the mirrored helmet mask as a military/terrorist leader and the cloth mask as either informal presence or cult leader but ive got nothing to back that up. just seems like common sense why he would have 2

I just got some Uniqlo AIRism masks in the mail a few days ago. I really like them a lot. Most comfortable cloth mask I've tried so far. I'll probably buy some more.



I'm wearing a medium and it fits good.

You can get a 3 pack for $15 from Uniqlo.
If you've never ordered from there before, I think you can get free shipping on your first order.

lol army but this is legitimately the most comfortable mask I've found so far. You get a good seal around the face and it's made of a somewhat stiffer fabric, so it doesn't get completely sucked to your mouth when you breathe in.

Otherwise the rest of my masks are Olson masks that I sewed to tie behind the head instead of using the ear loops.

One of the benefits of working around covid deniers and people who get all their information from Facebook or TikTok is that no one really cares what you wear so at work I have a doubled-up gaiter or a bandanna tied around my face.

The electronics are in a pocket secured with velcro so they're easily removed before washing. It only runs one message/animation at a time, but it uses a pretty basic phone app so you can switch what its displaying via blue tooth.

Just curious, what does "they are dead" mean for a cotton mask?

I made all my own masks, so some of them match quilts I've made, and one of them is a leftover from a dress my mom made when I was nine. (I also have an SA Mart thread so there are many goons out there who also match my quilts)
