To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The package was delivered fast. However, the box was open and the plastic bag that wrapped with all masks was quite loose. Due to the concern that these are masks, the manufacturers should seal the package properly for health reason. Other than this, the product is fine as we still have some old ones in stock and haven't used any of these.
Je travaille en salle d'urgence. Je suis habitué à porter un masque. Je porte différents types de masque dont des N95. Pour les masques de procédure il faut retenir qu'ils sont tous composés de trois couches. Ce n'est pas en soi un critère de qualité. Le critère à rechercher est le niveau ASTM (et le confort). Le masque ASTM de niveau 1 est celui que je porte le plus souvent à mon travail et en dehors de mon lieu de travail. Ce qu'il faut retenir c'est qu'un bon masque est celui qui s'ajuste bien à votre visage et que vous ne serez pas porté à toucher afin de le réajuster. La majorité des cas de contamination se produise lors de l'ajustement ou du retrait du matériel de protection. Il y a une procédure à suivre avant de mettre ou d'enlever un masque. Et il est important de vous laver les mains avant de mettre le masque et avant de le retirer.
1) Re “Comfort”: To me, its primary aspect for a protective face covering is BREATHABILITY. Personally, wearing one of these with no shield for about 80 minutes made me ill for well over a day (asthma attack) ... I’m not a mask wearer (medically exempt and use a long, curtained face shield instead) ... but aside from how they affected my respiratory response I found that they do fit comfortably. 2) These are clearly quite a decent product: They offer a good nose seal, would probably fit any adult fine, and seem to fit better than those ubiquitous institutional blue ones! I believe that they’re suitable for most adults who can wear fabric non-medical masks. However, in case of forceful sneezing or coughing, these (as with most cloth masks, according to actual study results) do not prevent penetration of tiny viral particles, inward or outward. Knowing this, if I had to wear this mask with no face shield, I wouldn’t be confident that others around me were truly protected from you-know-what, or from colds or influenza. 3) My spouse detected a just slight chemical odor from the fabric (as could I), so he’s opted to use them with the plastic frame, and a face shield.
I had purchased the blue masks from the same company before, so I thought I'd give these black ones a try. Compared to the blue ones, the black ones are quite a bit smaller (both in earloop size and horizontal length of the mask itself. The blue ones were a bit loose on me, but the black ones are more snug. Should fit most faces, but might not be for you if you are looking for a looser fit (eg. more space between your mouth and mask).
The mask itself is also thicker than the blue ones. Probably would be too hot during the 30°+ summer days, but should be fine otherwise.
The ones I got also didn't have the smell that others have mentioned.
I bought a box of each of these and the blue verison, they are nice quality and very comfortable.
I find these black versions to be stiffer & less comfortable / more restrictive to breathe through than the blue equivalent, which I prefer. These are properly manufactured with their pleats facing down etc, unlike another box of disappointing individually wrapped ones I purchased here as well.
I will continue looking for my "ultimate black mask" to complement their exceptional blue version.
--Nice black masks with solid nose wire for decent seal (glasses wearers) --Strong ear loop masks that dont fall apart. --Eurofins Lab Testing done in North america , not china (certificate in the box) --Product is still made in China -- wish that the entire product was made in Canada/usa though --Product has no chemical smell like other masks --All 50 masks comes in a single plastic wrapping, not individually sealed like others.
Decent masks. Took longer than normal to arrive. I ordered solely because they are black and medical quality. No masks are comfortable, but I do find these are rather high to the eyes. The nose piece is definitely much better than some. I find they have a rather unpleasant odor, but it fades fairly quickly. I'd recommend airing a few out ahead of time.
The price is not bad for these, but I have seen them cheaper with the local Costco, like half the price! I had no membership for Costco to get them! I find these are pretty comfortable to wear, but when you have an 8 hour shift near the end they do tend to hurt the ears! They are better then some other brands though for comfort! I would recommend these!
Bonjour, Je suis déçu. La raison, j'ai remarqué le logo du drapeau du Canada dans la description du produit. En plus, une compagnie canadienne. J' ai commandé les masques croyant qu'ils étaient fabriqué au Canada. Par contre, après avoir lu les infos sur la boîte, ils ont été fabriqué en Chine. Mon intention était de commander un produit canadien ou fait en amérique du nord. Ça devrait-être indiqué clairement pour ce qui est de la provenance. Merci, reçu ma commande avant date prévu.
