Regularly $30 for a five-pack, these masks fall to just $14.99 for this holiday multi-pack, which is the best price we’ve ever seen them go for. That means you’ll pay just under $3 each, making them an absolute steal. You can also get them for girls for $14.99 in the holiday prints, plus, orders ship free when you spend more than $50.
Whether you’re replacing some of your more worse-for-wear cloth face coverings or are buying them for the first time, this could be a great time to invest. Why? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends wearing masks in public to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19, and they’re mandated in many stores, states and cities. Having a stash of face masks that are comfortable, breathable and made of high-quality materials is definitely worth it.
Why we love this Athleta face mask
After testing the most popular cloth face masks on the market, Reviewed’s apparel expert, Jamie Ueda, dubbed Athleta’s Everyday non-medical masks as the best face covering on the market.
These one-size-fits-all picks were Jamie’s favorite for a multitude of reasons, including the thin, triple-layered fabric design and the impressive balance they struck between comfort and functionality. Unlike other masks, she found that these were actually quite breathable, yet still provided standard protection. They’ve got attached, adjustable ear loops to fasten the fabric tightly against your face, and the included nose piece—which isn’t always found in cloth face masks—can be adjusted for optimal safety and snugness.
We aren’t the only ones who think these masks are great. Made from soft, breathable and protective fabric, they have a 4.5-star review from nearly 4,200 reviewers—and counting. Even better, Athleta is donating 100,000 non-medical masks to a major healthcare organization in support of its essential workers.
Please note: While cloth facial coverings are essential nowadays, Athleta’s are not medical grade, nor have they been approved by the FDA. However, they provide an extra layer of protection by blocking respiratory droplets, which is the primary way that COVID-19 is transmitted.
