UPDATE: Shows back in stock as of 1:30PM PT 9/23. It seems to have gone in and out of stock a few times within hours so keep checking if it looks OOS as the seller may have put more into stock since he has these in other counts like 20 and 10 packs so he must have more stock.
Same seller (jp-genuine) that had the 50-pack of KN95 masks on eBay a few days ago for $14.39 (in this thread: https://slickdeals.net/f/14352878-kn95-protective-5-layers-face-mask-50-pack-14-39
) has it back on sale, this time for $14.99 on eBay with free shipping, so only about a penny more per mask than the previous deal.
I've asked the seller and he confirms these are the same Nanoflo brand as the last deal, which I missed out on so I can't vouch for how good they are compared to other KN95 masks.
Yes, I know these are not FDA-approved masks and have no independent certification, but given how many threads there have been about the Chinese KN95 masks over the months, I assume anyone buying these now is making an informed decision on their own if these are appropriate for their needs. I'd say they are certainly better than a typical disposable surgical mask or a bandana, but I would hope everyone knows by now that these likely don't compare well to real N-95 masks.I wear them cause I feel they protect better than the 90% of people I encounter every day who are either wearing a bandana or a disposable surgical mask that is clearly being reworn for the 100th time. At 30 cents a mask, I'm not complaining. Like most of these types of masks, there's the usual disclaimer that it's "not for medical use."
Please kindly don't thumbs down just cause you personally don't think any of these eBay KN95 masks are a valid alternative to N-95 masks. It's a bit of a pointless endless debate.
