Made in USA N95 masks, $26 for 20 + free shipping, from United States Mask

$26.00

From United States Mask, based in Texas, manufactured in the USA:
20 masks for (1.30 ea) $26 after promocode USA for an additional $10 off (thx to dhookup515 for the coupon code)
40 masks for (1.50 ea) $60 with promocode USA for an additional $10 off
Free shipping for a limited time

Just got an email from United States Mask about a limited-time promotion. I'd joined their mailing list after the NY Times article about them. With their current promotion, this seems like a decent deal for a legit N95 mask made in the USA by a Texan company.

3M products are showing up on amazon in this price range (or cheaper), but I don't trust amazon as much regarding counterfeits. With this, you're buying directly from the manufacturer.

Guess where they got most of their equipment to make the masks? CHINA.
Guess what the design of their N95 is based on? The Chinese Standard KN95 design, but with added headbands instead of ear bands.

They are pretty enterprising and good profiteers though. It's not easy getting NIOSH approval. You can only label a respirator an N95 after the approval process. The wholesale price of these kind of KN95 masks is around 10 to 15 cents ATM.

The retail price of these should be lower than $1 to be competitive. These kind of N95 masks are not the same shape/material/design as the gold standard 3M respirators, which are now getting back to the $1 retail price. Wholesale prices are much lower.

I'm all for the US to get back in the business of making their own PPE, but not those who prey on others nationalistic tendencies.

*Speaking from my experience in being a part of the KN95 mask supply chain during this pandemic

I'm in! Hope they don't break after wearing them twice like the competitors' masks.

Guys, having tried all kinds of masks I can tell you that these won't seal correctly.

They are called N95 but really are KN95 style. Usually N95s are molded, have a strong clip around the nose, and have thick rubber head loops.

If masks leak they are almost useless. Might as well just wear a cloth or surgical mask for a fraction of the price.

The kind of design they have used is very similar to the KN95 and those respirators typically are not as stiff as the popular 3M N95 design, and they don't seem to hold up as well when donning & doffing multiple times.

I watched a video on a company struggling to sell n95s and the employees were wearing regular street clothes and the woman responsible for packaging the masks was wearing her mask below her nose. It seems like their workplace does not follow strict sanitization policies and I'm a bit confused as to why they were wearing regular masks instead of the mountains of n95s they're surrounded by.

I'll take exception to this. If you have a headband instead of ear loops, you might be able to get a good seal. You can even do that with the much cheaper Chinese KN95s by using ear savers/head extenders which go around the head.

My issue is with their pricing. These KN95 style N95 respirators are much cheaper to produce.

Code works, $26 is more reasonable to support them.

Watch this guy:

Didn't even know about KF masks until I started watching these videos: KF is the Korean standard and are more apt to be real than the KN masks of which there have been counterfeits. S. Korean standards are as rigid as US and the KF80 are more breathable with near effective filtration as a -95 masks. Prices can be under $1/mask when buying in bulk.

All you need to know is co-founder getting his picture taken with gloves on and his hands in his pockets. These guys are using the victim card and Made in the USA for a quick buck.

I do not really see a harm in showcasing that it is made in the US especially since the Canadian CDC has found Chinese masks with graphene and phthalates. But here we are debating over jingoism...
