Even with the first vaccine doses being administered, face masks will be with us for a while. President-elect Joe Biden’s term will begin with him urging Americans to wear masks for the first 100 days of his presidency, and as we move into the holidays, it's never been more important to take mask-wearing recommendations seriously in order to lessen the continued spread of COVID-19.
If you haven't upgraded the type of face mask you wear to something high-tech and comfortable, you may want to give this one a look. The Ultramasx UltraOne can quell your biggest complaints about difficulty breathing or keeping cool while wearing a face mask. It contains a fan along with a 4-stage HEPA and activated carbon filter and it's currently available for under $70.
The Ultramasx has an electrically powered ventilation system that will help you breathe better through the use of a fan. There are two fan speeds to keep you cool while keeping harmful air pollution, smoke, bacteria, and viruses at bay. The HEPA filter and activated carbon filter work together to filter out particles as small as 0.3 micrometers with 99.97 percent effectiveness.
Featured on NBC, ABC, Fox News, and USA Today, the mask has multiple 5-star Amazon reviews and has been called the "Cadillac of face masks."Its breathability, combined with its filters, makes it the perfect option for anyone who needs to wear a mask for long periods of time, wants to wear one while working out, or prefers an upgraded experience for running essential errands.
"It really is the Cadillac of face masks,” wrote one reviewer. “The silicone inner mask seals to your face and the entire rig is almost as light as a regular paper or cloth mask. The fan is not loud, and the fan combined with the silicone seal makes it VERY comfortable to wear.”
The mask contours to your face using medical-grade silicone and thin straps — both of which limit the contact it makes on your skin. It’s rechargeable with a USB, and the replaceable filters last up to three years, which drastically minimizes the environmental impact you'd get from traditional masks.
