Health and wellness have never been more important. The pandemic of 2020 gave many people around the world a crash course in the importance of what goes in our lungs, but viruses are just one of the many things masks, gaiters, and other facial coverings help keep out. Forest fires, smog, mold, and other pollutants are found virtually everywhere in some form, and can pose a health risk if we're exposed. While masks became a hot topic in 2020, the fact of the matter is that for many years people around the world have recognized the benefits of filtering what goes into your lungs.
Like many people, we wore a lot of masks and gaiters over the course of 2020. And our favorites by far are the masks and gaiters from Airband. Super comfortable and lightweight, Airbands feature one of the best flexible nose bars we've encountered. Machine-washable, the thing that sets Airband apart from many other masks we've tried is the incorporated nanofiber membrane that offers extra filtration protection in addition to the mask's 3-ply design.
