What they're saying
The elastic could be just a tad longer making the mask a bit less tight. But otherwise they are very good. So far these are the best combination of filtering and comfort that I have found.
I love that these have a strap that goes over the head. It makes the fit a lot more secure.
The extra foam liner makes it seal better and more particulate proof. The price is still a high compared to pre Covid prices.
