5 Pack Dasheng N95 Safety Masks NIOSH Approved, Lowe's B&M YMMV $20

I saw a stack of these 5 packs of Dasheng N95 Safety Masks at my local Lowes. Checked half a dozen zip codes and they seem to have good availability around the US except in the Northeast.

Price... meh, but availability seems slick.

Still too pricey per unit cost.

N95 not really needed unless you're in close contact with a lot of people.. My friend works at Kaiser and all they're provided with is a regular surgical mask and a face shield since he doesn't deal with patiients.
Not necessarily disagreeing with you, but most people around me don't know how to wear a mask (nose exposed) or choose to wear poorly fitted fabrics. Surgical masks only work when both people are properly wearing them.

That being said, I already have N95 from Grainer/Honeywell and I don't think the quality on these at Lowe's seem that great.

I know what you mean. I see people wearing the surgical masks with the nose bridged side on their chin.

Yes I bought them from my local Lowes thinking these will be good. But I was wrong. Like I mentioned in the comment these are just cheaply made kn95s with a head strap
Edit: They had enough gaps around the nose and chin area
do you have a picture of the box? or are they in a plastic shrink wrap? having a hard time finding them at the store. employee was no help.

Yup, my brother bought these and they wouldn't seal

not too expensive when you need a good mask now. People are chocking on hazardous wild fire smoke. I don't go out without one. Air is hazardous but better in some spots. Also new studies show FLU is down from these simple steps. Don't listen to others unless they know your situation and have credentials

Anyone can lookup the NIOSH certification TC number to verify that it's a real N95. Also, buying from a reputable source gives some assurance that the cert number isn't fraudulent.
https://wwwn.cdc.gov/niosh-cel/

"84A-4329" matches up to:
https://wwwn.cdc.gov/NIOSH-CEL/Ap...alNum=4329

It's awesome that some real N95s are starting to become available. In a perfect world, we'd all be wearing real N95s instead of the stopgap KN95s and half-assed fabric masks.

Thanks for your feedback. Are you a big man? I'm large and find the larger 3M masks with filters fit me better than some of the smaller n95. Just curious. I ordered two boxes of the Honeywell yesterday but may pick some of these as well. My office is going to be packing 100s of people in the office in a couple weeks because the government raised the allowable capacity to 50%, I want to be protected even if other people look at me like I'm crazy for wearing an N95 while they wear a fabric mask.
You might also want to look into "elastomeric respirators". These can be more comfortable while still maintaining an excellent seal and they're one of the very few ways to get real N95s or even N100s. The inhalation filtration is top notch, but they don't filter exhalation, they just redirect the outflow. (There are ways to mitigate this.) More info:

Lol, If I'm going to stick out with an N95 this would be really funny. I don't doubt it works but in an office setting people are going to think I'm nuts!

Yeah, I know what you mean and it's a bit sad. I use one frequently and, yes, it does get some strange looks like I ought to be wearing a tinfoil hat to complete the ensemble. But, it's 9 months into this thing and it seems like we're just barely starting to get used to seeing people in any kind of mask. I have to wonder where we'd be if wearing a mask was more socially acceptable back in February or March.

Wow, lots of stock at most locations.
While this may not be the best deal, it is nice to see them available again.
Hopefully 3m will be back soon.

I would rather use made-in-Korea KF94 or nanofiber masks than made-in-China N95/KN95 masks.
KF94 masks are lighter, much more comfortable to use, and often cheaper, not to mention more trustworthy.
Mask usage was widespread in Korea even before the pandemic because of micro-dust pollution from China. Koreans know how to make and use masks, which is why they have had one of the most successful response to the pandemic.

CDC said that the Coronavirus is spread "through respiratory droplets or small particles, such as those in aerosols" on Friday, 9/18/20.

Than today, 9/21/20, reverted to saying that the Coronavirus is spread "through respiratory droplets or small particles, such as those in aerosols"

https://www.cnn.com/2020/09/21/he...index.html

It appears CDC cannot make up its mind whether the Coronavirus is airborne or not. My point is that if CDC determines that the coronavirus is airborne then it will be important for people to wear an approved KN95 or N95; which, is effective against aerosols.
