speaking of masks, anyone know a good source to get the style used by Apple?

I'd like to try them to see if the top flap style keeps my glasses from fogging up.

A lot of the cheapo procedure-style masks have wimpy nose wires that won't keep their shape and seal around the nose. With those, it's hard to tell what you're going to get. I tried some KN-95s and their ear loops were so tight they pulled the nose wires straight and I had the same problem--plus they make my ears stick straight out. grinning smiley

They look very similar to KF94 masks.

I've been very pleased with KF94s.

They are shaped to provide a gap around the mouth so they feel less oppressive and the nose-wire holds its shape very well.

KN95s hurt my nose from pressing down on the bridge all day. KF94s do not.

If I pinch the top and pull it just above the bridge of my nose, my glasses rest on the edge of the mask and they do not fog.

The sides and bottom seem shaped to wrap around my face tighter, wider, and more comfortably than N95 and KN95 masks. I'm less concerned about leakage around my beard with the flaps shaped this way.

...I wear a silicone extender because the ear-loops on all of these are sized for small faces and for people who don't wear glasses. Other masks can slip down a bit and require frequent adjustment with an extender because it sits below the ears and puts a subtle downward pressure on the mask. The KF94 masks shape themselves to my face and do not slip.

LOL!





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

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

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 client passed these out to replace what everyone was wearing.
Yea, they ain't cheap.
Very comfortable. I would think were good for fog prevention with specs, but I can't say from experience.

Seconding Be Healthy USA. You can get a 10 pack of 10 different mask styles and figure out which one(s) fits your face best before you commit to a larger quantity. We love the Large Dr. Puri (be sure to choose the adjustable style) and Blue 3D masks for men and Medium Dr. Puri and Large Bluna FaceFit for women/older kids. BOTN and ILWOUL were both ok, just didn't fit our family's faces as well.

We also have the Air Queens and like that you can sanitize with alcohol and reuse, but they don't seem to have as good a fit for us.

I have personally tried most of the KF94s available on Be Healthy so let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks! A mixed 10-pack is on its way.

Thanks to everyone else, too.
