KN95 masks. 50/$12.99 shipped. US Seller. Received in 5 days.

[www.ebay.com]

Seller is "dptmotorsport"
123,587 eBay rating.
Top-rated seller: One of eBay's most reputable sellers.
99.8% Positive feedback

Just got a shipment today. I have made multiple purchases from this eBay seller over the past covid months for masks. These KN95 masks are in stock for a reasonable price on a regular basis. 5 layers. The fit is nice and snug with metal strip on the nose bridge. The elastic is the flat ribbon type that is a tiny bit better feeling than the round elastic type, IMO.

I plan on using the generic blue 10cent 3ply masks for everyday errands, shopping, picking my kid up from school, chatting with neighbor in the yard. I will use these KN95 masks for more crowded/high risk indoor areas like the office building at work. Anyplace with an elevator. Commuting on the train/plane. Etc.

The nice thing is these KN95 masks are individually sealed. I can throw a handful of them in the car or kids' backpack and know the sealed ones are new and clean. And giving out individually sealed masks is much more appreciated.

Yes. They are made in China similar to 90% of everything you own.
No. I don't know where to buy 3M N95 masks that are reasonably priced, and in stock.
No. I have no connection to the seller other than being a happy customer.

Thanks, I was busy about to start a mask thread, as I'm looking for something better than surgical masks.

I got some KN95s from (probably) a different ebay seller that are not individually sealed.

I don't use them often because of the fit. The elastic around the ears pulls so tight that I can't get the metal nose pieces to seal and my glasses fog up (the pull is so hard that it straightens the curve of the nose pieces). And if my glasses fog up, that means the air isn't being filtered by the mask material and the mask isn't very effective.

I bought from this seller - probably the same operation, but this one is 11¢ cheaper

[www.ebay.com]

Also a good transaction - fast delivery, individually wrapped, etc...

How are masks like this being sold for 25 cents each now, when before the bat fever, they cost 2 bucks each?

I can't speak for other masks and/or other sellers. But the current manufacture lot stock of KN95 masks from this particular seller (referenced above) I just bought 5 days ago fit very nicely on my above average head size. I wear a 7 3/4 cap size. The flat ribbon-type elastic loops have a nice springy-ness to it.

Because before COVID, this crap was not sold in the US. What you got for $2 a pop was a 3M N95 mask, something you can’t buy for love or money today.

if this is the same deal as the one posted at Slick Deals, they complained over there that the rubber bands snap off.

I have a batch from Amazon and I use staples to reinforce the straps to the mask.

Some people just like to complain for drama. If you're on SlickDeals enough, you know that place is crawling with trolls. Ebay has one of the best buyer protection policies on the internet. If there is anything wrong with it, return for a full refund plus shipping on the seller's dime. This seller has been selling masks for months with a 99.8% positive rating. If something was wrong with my eBay or Amazon item, I would just return it. Why deal with staples on a disposable mask?

I would love to find and purchase 3M N95 masks at pre-pandemic prices or cheaper. These disposable KN95 masks will hold me over until that time comes.

Just remember... just because it has KN95 on it doesn't mean it is actually a real KN95 mask. For example, any "*95" mask with ear loops is NOT. The face seal is critical to getting up to 95%.

And "KN95" means it fits the Chinese standards (if it is a REAL KN95). Not the US/EU standards.

That said, these are probably good enough for casual wearers. They are NOT suitable as PPE for people coming in close contact with COVID patients. Properly worn N95 or better plus all the other stuff is what works.

I use masks over and over. But I'm not going into hospitals or school buildings full of students or any buildings full of strangers every day. Otherwise, why would anyone throw a mask away after one use?

Factories that used to run one shift a day at 60% of capacity making them are now running 3 shifts at a day at 100% capacity.
Demand went up, so they cranked up supply.

Ear loops vs headbands and ventless vs vented; N95/KN95 masks are 'particulate'
mask. Never intended for medical use or hazardous fumes.
Just give bezosville a Hundred Bucks and get a PD-100 Full Face Gas Mask.

geez, it's getting to the point where any day now you'll see someone out shopping
wearing an M50 mask...

I would prefer to get masks without patronizing ebay...

The cheapest I found for a smaller purchase is mydigitaldiscount.com ($6 for a five-pack). They have been mentioned here multiple times but I would rather not open a new account unless I was desperate. I can get KN95 locally for ~$4 ea., and just under $1 ea. in boxes of 25 or 50 at Newegg.
