You all know I’m a fan of things that make homeschool life easier. Now, although homeschoolers don’t need to wear masks in public school classrooms all day, these pesky little things are still required for outings to the store and other activities.
Recently, the AirPop Mask company reached out to me to review their masks and of course I said yes (mostly because none of the masks I have and use are comfortable for me and I wear glasses, which makes it even more annoying when they fog up)!
Disclaimer: The masks were sponsored for this review.
As masks go, I was fairly impressed with these ones, as I was sent three different types:
Adult AirPop Light SE Mask
Adult AirPop Pocket Mask
Kids AirPop Mask
What is the AirPop Mask made from?
AirPop is the world’s first “air wearables” company. They have been working to combine filtration science and technology, professional performance and comfort in the design. The masks are manufactured from ultra-durable nonwoven materials for lasting performance, withstanding washing and re-use up to ten times, which is far more than the average disposable medical mask.
Who are AirPop masks for?
For children ages 3 and up, and for adults. The AirPop Pocket Mask is also useful for adults like myself who wear glasses, because the soft rubber nose bridge conforms neatly to your face, preventing your glasses from fogging up.
How does the AirPop Mask work?
All AirPop masks combine a 4-layer filter material to create a barrier down to 0.3 microns and are certified by accredited labs to filter >99% of particles and droplets two-ways – inside and outside. You get the same protection as top-notch medical and industrial-grade masks, but with the added design benefit of being more comfortable for everyday wear.
The shape of the AirPop mask allows for cool airflow so you don’t have that horrible smothered, claustrophobic feeling and your mouth doesn’t press against the fabric at all (as is often the case with the normal fabric masks most people wear).
AirPop Mask in use:
“Masks provide the first line of defence from airborne threats, but they’ve been largely unregulated, under designed, and ineffective for the consumer market. So we at AirPop set out to change that,” said Chris Hosmer, Founder of AirPop.
“Because we all have a vital role to play in reducing the spread of COVID-19 through our communities, choosing an appropriate mask means it has to both fit and filter well to reduce transmission from airborne particles and droplets. With AirPop there’s finally an option that protects the rest of us, doesn’t divert critical N95s from healthcare professionals, yet meets the same high quality standards and two-way filtration as the best medical and industrial respirators.”
What does the AirPop Mask look like on the inside?
The Light SE Mask also has adjustable ear loops to help ensure a proper fit. No more struggling with a mask that’s too big or too small!
However both the foam and the rubber parts conform to your face shape and around your nose to create a secure fit without being uncomfortable or hurting your skin.
