Because you have facial hair? A beard or moustache won't allow a mask to fit properly.

My impression:   the author is far more interested in looking cool than actually surviving a pandemic.   We're all of us self-conscious of our masks.   So you have an extra-dorky looking respirator that actually does an extremely good job of filtering the air and you're complaining?   Suck it up.

I have no evidence of its actual efficacy. But you're right that his review is light on relevant details like efficacy, whether the filter is better or worse than a normal mask and whether this is just a fancier face shield or an actual upgrade to filtration...

That being said, the article should have included what it looks like when it's not seated properly, since it was a major complaint of his. 

His concluding remarks sound pretty fair. He said it makes sense for people who are always in contact with the public, like cashiers and so on.

I can't deny that if the seal and filter is good, as a glasses wearer this has some appeal.

And after dealing with the nonstop chafing and irritation on the back of my ears and cheeks, I'm thinking it might be worth it.  Between my glasses and ear loops, my ears are going to be cauliflowered by the time this is over.  And I look like a dorky teen again with irritated skin across my lower face.

I'll just carry on using my ABEK2 filter mask. No batteries, replaceable standard filters, fits in my pocket (I have a big pocket).

Had it before the pandemic for when I am spraying toxic stuff around, I have it now for when other people are spraying infectious stuff around, I will still have it after for when I need to spray toxic stuff around.

You carry on wearing your little bit of cloth if it makes you feel better, it won't stop you catching Covid-19 from other people. Medical masks are much better, but hardly anyone seems to wear those, so I'll carry on wearing an effective barrier to infection.

In 2015, we conducted a randomized controlled trial to compare the efficacy of cloth masks with that of medical masks and controls (standard practice) among healthcare workers in Vietnam (4). Rates of infection were consistently higher among those in the cloth mask group than in the medical mask and control groups.

I got one with my stimulus. It is heavy and isn't easy to fit comfortably, but it does work better than a mask on the face if you're in a plane or ride share. So far I've only worn it in a ride to pick up my car from the shop. I looked foolish perhaps, but the driver who picked me up wanted to buy one.

Granted it's their web page, but it sounds pretty well engineered:

Features
- 4 HEPA 11 filters
- Removable washable fabric scarf
- 8 hours of battery life
- Twin dual speed fans
- Full faced and fog free acrylic dome
- Two-size cushion liners included
- 6 ft USB-C cable included for charging
- Microfiber cloth for cleaning
- Carrying case
- Works well with AirPods and Live Listen feature on iOS
- Weighs approximately 2 lbs

It is negatively pressured to accommodate coughs, sneezes, etc. And has a large surface area for low velocity filtration, i. e. no dry eyes or throat.

If you have 300 bucks lying around, why go with this weird douchebag flex? That's like twice what you need for a personal contained air setup that will both work better with a filter and serve as actual emergency equipment with an air tank.

Also, frankly, an SCA mask is more stylish: you can wear your trilby or top hat over one, for you instance. I assume that's a pressing concern for anyone in the market for the thing TFA is reviewing.

I have the Miller-branded one of those for welding.  It appears to be the same unit.  It's nice, but I can't use the organic filter at my altitude.  I also have the clear hood for doing other crap, but I've yet to use it.

If you check the link I posted, the CDC claim that no mask and good practices are more effective than a cloth mask. Sensibly keeping your distance helped you more than a cloth mask would have, if you didn't keep your distance that is.

Of course, the world is full of assholes who don't keep their distance and either wear no mask or an ineffective badly fitting cloth one. That is why I wear a mask capable of keeping me safe from them.

Often, the cloth mask that people wear is not cleaned, ever. In the study that said cloth masks were worse than the control group, the masks were washed daily...

Therefore, ideally, all frontline healthcare workers should use a respirator.

The general public can use cloth masks to protect against infection spread in the community


Which group were we discussing again?

Tiny problem with your claim. The 2015 study stated that those who used make had a higher rate possibly because the masks weren't being washed. They also stated a few paragraphs down that taking off a mask is high risk because one can self-infect by mishandling the mask, which has infection vectors on the exterior.

Finally, the fabric type, weave, moisture resistance, and layering of the cloth masks, proper fit, availability, and frequency of washing of the available masks were all uncontrolled variables in the study, as was admitted by the study group. After all that, they still believe that cloth masks still might have efficacy, especially if no other option is available. The key in all this is proper education.

If you're going to state something as drastic as, "cloth masks don't work," keep it in context. Spreading bullshiat information is at least as dangerous as the virus itself.

He's also conflating two different purposes for masks; filtering incoming air while in an infected environment, and arresting outgoing vapor to reduce (not eliminate) further infecting the environment. Cloth masks suck badly at the first task, and (if used right) do ok at the second. Healthcare workers need the first, general public can get by with the second. Not only is this spelled out pretty clearly in the study, but you have to scroll right past it to get to the cherrypicked portion.

why would they not say how much higher the infection rates were in the 2015 study

did I miss it or did they not think that is important

I got one of these things... http://covidisor.com/

it has changeable 3M -N45 filters for air intake, and one in the back for the air output. uses an external batterypack to power the rear exhaust fan etc.
it does tend to fog up outside in the cold...and you can't hear a damn thing with it on, other than the fan noise.
but I felt a LOT better wearing it when I had to wait in line at the Post Office for over an hour.

when the pandemic finally settles down I will be modifying it for a retro space costume.

Oh I wasn't referring to you. I was talking about the guy who was apparently hoping nobody would click the link, because if they did one of the first things they'd find was a brief note describing how he was wrong and an indication of where to find where he's wrong in detail.

Can someone explain to me all the biatching about masks? I can't relate at all. Simply don't get it. People acting like they're being asked to carry around an 80lb pack everywhere. With glasses they were slightly annoying from all the fogging up at first but I solved that by... getting different masks that didn't do that. It was super easy. People all "oh thank fark I can take my mask off" and I'm like... that's the least inconvenient part of all of this. It's barely even a deal, let alone a big deal.

FrabjousDay: My impression:   the author is far more interested in looking cool than actually surviving a pandemic.   We're all of us self-conscious of our masks.   So you have an extra-dorky looking respirator that actually does an extremely good job of filtering the air and you're complaining?   Suck it up.


Yeah, that guy's blog sucks.

"My kids gathered round the box, because the virus has rendered them eternal devotees of shipment porn."

Shipment pron.   Will have to use that in my house....


That's like the one worthwhile part in that stupid snark-fest.
