Hey! I've got one of those, too!

I reinforced the metal nose strip to get a better seal, which helped the fit.

I was using Airinum masks right at the beginning and just re-ordered filters. A great mask but when you're all buttoned up they are a bit tougher to breathe through (does the job then!).


Otherwise I've been using the GA masks and got a few 5-packs from Hyperlite Mountain Gear.

Really been enjoying the U Mask for the past couple weeks--comfortable for 8 plus hrs a day, easy to speak and be heard, looks decent. Higher rating than N95/FFP3 and resuable filter for 200 hrs, with replacement filters coming in around 20 cents per hr--seems like a winner. And Bono uses it so fucking a legit, haha!

I'm with you 100% and prefer their motiv mask--style wise--which still sadly, vibes with Bane. But ease of use, communication, and the whole damn point of course is safety, this has been my go to.

the Bane remark was a back handed compliment-- its pretty stealth looking .
The guys behind the camera are doing good stuff..

I'm currently in Perth, Australia. We do not have restrictions or a mandatory mask policy as we haven't had a community case for 9 months and counting. However, I'm moving back to Singapore next month, where they have a mandatory mask policy going about unless you're eating, exercising etc..

Just wondering if anyone have any advice on how you adapted to wearing a mask and if you have any mask brand recommendations? I'm looking towards fabric ones, preferably something comfortable. The ones that have the blue and white ones makes breathing a little uncomfortable for me. Also, something that might fit well with glasses..

Not much mask wearing here either, but one thing I can tell you is the with glasses you need something with a snug fit/seal at the top, over the nose. The medical masks have a metal strip that does the job well (when used properly). Lack of a seal will have your glasses fogging up regularly.

If N-95 or some good KN-95 are available in your area, they're much better than cloth masks (which were great when we didn't have anything else).

The guys at Obbigoodlabel sent me a pair of the ones they made just so I have my own when I get to the airport. now that you mentioned it, when I tried it, it does fog up a little compared to the normal blue and white ones they give at the apple store with the wire nose clip..

If N-95 or some good KN-95 are available in your area, they're much better than cloth masks (which were great when we didn't have anything else).

Are those the ones with the little square filters? are they single use only? I heard that they were the creme de la creme of masks. I was looking for something that I don't really have to replace..


not sure if anyone watches f1. but I do like the ones they wear after they race when the helmet comes off. the fit looks perfect too.

U-Masks? Division Road (an IH retailer) has some without the F1 branding.
