I own three masks. I ordered a fourth mask, N-95 from a Kickstarter campaign – https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/fitness-safety/breeze-silver-and-gold-cooling-tech-antibacterial-travel-mask. It should be sent out in November 2020. The campaign ended September 7th. When I ordered the mask, I received a survey with an important notice. I could choose the N-95 filter or the N-99 filter. The notice warned the N-99 was harder to breathe through than the N-95 filter. I opted for the N-95 filter as I figured it was good enough and I am much less likely to pass out while wearing it.
You can still pre-order the masks on Indiegogo – https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/breeze-the-face-mask-with-gold-silver-filters#/. Yes, the pre-orders are available on Indiegogo even though the original campaign was on Kickstarter. It looks like the price is the same for now although once the masks become available, the price will go up. I purchased mine for $39 + $8 shipping. Regular price is $59.00. They do offer discounts if you purchase more than one. The discount depends on how many you purchase in one order. If you use the Indiegogo link, the orders won’t be shipped out until December 2020 so it’s a month delay. You can choose the mask with or without filters. The survey included several choice colors where you ranked them in your preferred colors. They will go with the most popular color choices initially. Don’t know if they will expand to other color choices later. I went with the color choices I thought was more likely to get picked.
I don’t know if I will need the mask when it arrives, but given the price, I decided it was worth it. Plus, there is probably another pandemic orepidemic lurking around the corner. There have been a number of pandemics and epidemics since 2000. While many have been fairly minor, we tend to get enough of both that having a good mask is better than not having one.
