If you wear POWECOM masks; what do you like about them?

Re: If you wear POWECOM masks; what do you like about them?

I'm so over masks.  I'm a germaphobe so I embraced masks like they were everything.  But I'm done.  They did serve a purpose at first but I think we are past that now.  That's not to say that I'm against anyone who still wants to wear them. 

Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.

I do have that brand of KN95s, but I can't say there's anything about that brand in particular that's better than another because they are the only ones I've tried.  

 

The fit is snug without being uncomfortable and I can breathe (but I'm never wearing it very long).  I do have to fiddle with it a bit to get the nose wire in a good spot, but that's just moving the mask up and down a little to get it in the proper place for a snug fit.

I have worn KN95 masks since the very beginning of the pandemic and POWECOM is included in the ones I wear.   They fit well and I can breathe in them.   I have worn masks for several hours at a time and these are pretty comfortable.  My husband finds them a bit snug.   I suggest you buy a few at first and then judge them yourself.  That is the only way to know what works best for you.

I like that they fit snuggly without being tooooo tight. I feel they give me safe coverage without side 'leaks'. I now have some N95's but haven't yet tried them. I mask whenever out to a store or around too many people....which I try to avoid. I shop at the crack of dawn and head back home. 

 

happy to stay masked. as a retired RN, no way, no how do I want to risk long covid. yup, double boosted and masking as long as I want.

Shoekitty said, I am a masker too, doesn't bother me.  I don't wear this brand but I have kn95 I love.  Comfortable.  I still mask up. My immune system isn't that good, and it also cuts down on colds, flu and such. Now that they lifted wearing masks on plane I don't think I will fly for quite a while.
