Best Filtered Face Masks

Reading Time: 3 minutes

While traveling in India, I developed a sinus infection which required us to leave the country temporarily. This made our trip more expensive and we had to change our plans to deal with our illness.

It was then that I realized the importance of face masks when traveling to polluted countries. I currently live in Seattle where our AQI is anywhere between 20-36  year round. Visiting other countries like Vietnam or India made me appreciate our air quality back home.

Still, we wanted to explore the world without falling ill to pollution. We then found out about filtered face masks and decided to explore the best options.

After testing multiple brands, we knew we wanted masks that were reusable and that actually worked! Many masks we found abroad were cheap but still allowed harmful particles to enter our respiratory systems. They were also single-use and contributed to the demise of our environment!

Below are filtered mask brands that we think you should invest in when traveling to polluted destinations.

Best Filtered Face Masks

We narrowed the best reusable filtered face masks down to two companies. Check out our review of each company below to see which one is best for your respiratory needs.

#1 Vogmask

Vogmask is a San Francisco based respiratory mask company. They opened their doors in 2011 and have been on a mission to bring fashionable and reusable face masks to the world. To date, they sell their masks in 41 countries.

Vogmask is used for protection from airborne particles such as PM 0.3, PM 2.5, PM 10, dust, allergens, post combustion particles, germs, shavings, biologics, odors, scents, mold, mold spores, particles in wildfire smoke, volcanic particulate pollution, and other airborne contaminants.

We love the fun designs that resonate with our mood for the day. The masks come in various sizes ranging from S to XL. You can also choose from two materials: microfiber or organic fabric. Price range for Vogmasks run between $33 to $44 per mask.

We recommend consulting with their size chart to find your perfect size.

Vogmasks are also intended to be worn 3 months to a year. They are not reusable long-term. They are hand washable. Make sure the mask is fully dry prior to wearing again.

If you’re one to misplace personable belongings, we highly recommend buying a mask strap ($4) to keep your mask around your neck when not worn on the face.

#2 Airinum

Airinum is a Scandanavian company that creates urban face masks with a reusable design. Their multi-layer face mask filters are made to filter out more than 95% of particles down to 0.3μm in size.

We reviewed the NEMEN face mask ($99 USD) which comes with a polygiene treated mask skin, two mask filters, two onyx air valves, a carrying pouch with lanyard, and a black head strap. Mask sizes range from S to L.

The mask is VERY lightweight. The ear straps are adjustable, allowing us to find the perfect fit. The face mask itself is washable and reusable by hand.

The products come deconstructed but take just minutes to assemble and use. We love the carrying pounch to store our face mask when not in use.

Airinum face masks range from $59 to $99 depending on the style and material.

Although the face mask is more expensive, the functionality and design of the mask is very impressive. This is a mask that we would be able to wear with any outfit.

Airinum is also a member of 1% for the Planet, and give back to preserve the environment worldwide.

  1. I recently bought my Vogmasks and while I generally like the masks, I have to say their customer service was really bad. I emailed with 1 small complaint and 1 suggestion and got a rather stand-offish email responding only to the suggestion made. After emailing them back mentioning they had ignored my complaint, they refunded my order and insinuated that it was my own fault for the problems experienced. While I appreciate the refund, I was never looking for that, only acknowledgement that there was a small issue with my order so that they could check and ensure quality of future orders.

    1. I’ve had a wonderful experience with their customer service. I ordered the wrong size, and they mailed a free replacement all the way to Korea and didn’t make me return the old one. There is a crazy demand for masks now with the new coronovirus, so I would chalk up any negative experience to them being completely overloaded suddenly and cal it a fluke!

  2. Vogmasks are made in Korea. With the outbreak in Korea, I’m not sure if these masks are still safe to purchase. With the coronavirus being able to survive on surfaces for up to 9 days, will the packaging be safe to handle when ordered? I have sent an email requesting information on this topic and their response was “Viruses cannot multiply outside of a living organism.” I understand they cannot multiple but my concerns is with the viruses already on the packaging.
