Yet another unknown mask from an unknown manufacturer being pumped by an unknown vendor. There are far more effective choices available. There just isn't any reason to bother with shaky masks like this when there are many more reliable options.

Here's a couple good sources for reusable respirators. These are the best option in terms because they're proven to be effective and they can be reused for weeks/months when used in rotation:Both of these masks sometimes have discount codes available. For the the Powecoms try "2021". For the Dr. Puri try "welcome2021"

When used in rotation of 5-7 days, a N95/KN95/KF94 doesn't need to be tossed until it's soiled, damaged, or becomes difficult to breathe through. For me, that's about 40-50 hours.

If you absolutely have to have something disposable, then REAL surgical masks are available too. For surgical masks (the real ones at least) it's difficult to find a reliable vendor that sells to the general public.N95 > KN95 or KF94 on FDA list [fda.gov] > real ASTM [astm.org] surgical mask > everything else (better than nothing)

TLDR: these don't look very effective. These masks fall in the category "better than nothing".

Besides the fact your masks are 6 times the price. Nothing wrong with wanting better masks, but to low income families I'm sure cost is a big reason

I completely agree. I use masks with replaceable filters since the cost is much lower.

however, we own a couple of businesses and always need to have masks on hands for customers that dont have. cant justify spending a ton of money on a throwaway.

Not all of us can afford to put top-of-the-line masks on our faces that are just going to be thrown away. Perhaps multiple times a day. My hospital has been using Chinese-made, weird-attempt-at-English-brand-name masks since February. From our nurses and physicians to the patients and visitors, these do fine.

If you're wearing anything—facemask, a gaiter, whatever? Salute to you. You don't need a Ferrari to get to work, and you don't need an N95 facemask to reduce exposure.

I only see your comments on mask deals, not in the forums when ppl discuss masks.. therefore this is about you making money, not helping others. Should be penalized, I'm sick of reading why every mask is bad as soon as the deal is posted, just because a user is using their account for personal gain..

Aren't all the fancy N95 etc only beneficial for the wearer (inhalation)? Am I wrong? I thought the primary purpose of wearing a mask was to prevent spreading from YOUR mouth/nose into the air. *IF* that is true, then anything that covers your mouth / nose is effective against the spread, right?

This masks are supposed be for 1 use like going into a store, not for all day use. I don't expect top quality and I don't want to pay abusive high prices for disposable mask. This type of masks do the job and can be put on the trash right after.

No, that's not the case. The 2 products aren't equal. Also, the unproven mask being shilled here can only be used once while the masks I've linked to can be used many times - see the section on "rotation".

Random "dust" masks like the one being shilled here aren't proven to do anything. They aren't reviewed by any outside lab, they aren't certified by any trade or government agency, and there is no means for the consumer to know that what they're getting is effective.

Masks like the ones I've linked to are proven to be effective. Masks like the Powecom, Dr. Puri, or other on the FDA list are built to a specific standard, KN95 or KF94, certified by their country of origin and then test (multiple times) by the US FDA.

Also,using an effective, proven mask can actually be far cheaper than using some random, no-name, unproven single-use mask. For example, the Powecom or any of the good quality masks can be reused multiple times in rotation. A single $1 Powecom might be usable for 40 or more hours, so about a full week. Using the unproven single use masks at $0.12 and tossing the mask every time it's taken off would require at least 8-10 masks or $0.96 - $1.20. Plus, there's the very real possibility that the random no-name mask might not afford the same protection against COVID.

You see the info and yet you're still looking to purchase random unproven crap like this? Is there something that you don't understand or that needs to be explained better?

The only thing that needs to be penalized are the people trying to make a buck off of other people's suffering. If SD wants to shill random no-name tchotkes that's fine, but not medical equipment.
