Saw this in NY Times article. Why not buy American? (of you’re in the US)

Not suggesting these are in that category - just double check any N95 before you use. This from the Associated Press:

Federal authorities are investigating a massive counterfeit N95 mask operation in which fake 3M masks were sold in at least five states to hospitals, medical facilities and government agencies. The foreign-made knockoffs are becoming increasingly difficult to spot and could put health care workers at grave risk for the coronavirus.

Just bought some regular surgical masks that are made in usa and they definitely smell better. Which is to say, they don't smell at all.

My understanding was that part of the benefit of the N95 mask was the fit. These look just like rebranded KN95’s.

KN95s have earloops. Real N95s have a pair of bands that go around the back of your head. So at least that part is correct.

$75/20 or $3.75 seems a little pricey.

I guess that's the COVID tax.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

A friend of mine sells PPE supplies. He sells a lot of regular blue masks, 50 box. Made in China is $8 per box and made in USA is $10.50 per box. He sells China made masks 100:1 over the USA made ones.

I’ve been buying from Filti.com

They were making long life reusable furnace filters as a subscription model. They’d just brought up their full-scale production equipment when the pandemic hit. Instead of shutting down they doubled down and became a mask manufacturer in less than 2 months. Pretty epic tale.

Which one do you get the pleated one or the NF95?

I actually purchase filter media from them for the masks that I'm printing. I purchased some of their NF95 masks too though. They're pretty nice. Expensive though. I found out about them from this podcast:

There are KN95 masks with headbands, so don't rely absolutely on that as an indication of filter performance. If nobody buys the US made ones, we might end up in the same (or worse) place next time.

Are these masks washable/reusable?

There was a report on NY1 this morning about a whole bunch of counterfeit 3M N95 masks being seized in a raid on a warehouse in NYC.
