From what ive seen the washable masks arent great and dont offer much more protection than a scarf or old tshirt wrapped around your face, esp if in close contact on public transport, get a N95/FFP2 OR FFP3 mask. They aren't usually washable though.

N95s etc etc are all single use and really really uncomfortable to wear over long periods. They get sweaty vvvv quickly, I’ve got a big stash of them from work but would only bother with them if I was getting on a plane to Brazil or something.

If you’re concerned about having more protection than a standard cloth mask, one option is to get one that has a layer you can insert a flat PM2.5 filter, something like these:

https://www.casetify.com/en_GB/protects/mask

A pack of 20 filters then runs you about £15, and each filter lasts about a day.

Cheers for the info^

Any links for the filters? Just to ensure we're getting the right thing.

Also, when you say the filters last a day - is that 24hrs? So could you use a single filter over a period of time or is it literally wear it once and bin?

24 hours continuous use so if you’re using them for a few hours at a time you can prob use one for a week and then replace it. Pretty sure amazon etc sell them but my work gets them from this place, quick delivery in my experience:

The latter look decent, anyone seen anything similar from UK / EU sellers?

I ordered some from Casetify a couple of weeks back for me and some for my parents. They should arrive early next week. Free shipping. Will let people know what they are like when they arrive

Anyone seen anything similar to these that will ship sooner? Castify and Adidas looks decent but don't really want something branded.

I have some Japanese twill masks and they are heavy. Probably too heavy for summer.

Is there a technique to wearing a mask so your JMMs don't get steamed up?
