Perfect mask (please make more!)
This mask has kept me safe through surges and shallow COVID times, on international flights and crowded venues, flawless every time. It creates a perfect fit around facial hair, and fits easily in a pocket. Protip: tie each side into a fisherman's knot over each other on the lower loop and it becomes much easier to adjust. My only regret is no... Read Moret buying more while they were available... A naughty cat stole my black mask, so I've been nursing a single blue one through the past year. And hey, this still isn't over, so please consider manufacturing a few more!
Super light and breathable
These are great, especially for people that have may need to where a mask for long periods of time....for example, sitting on an airplane! The masks are very adjustable, and have one strap that just lets you hang it from your neck when not in use. A must for travel, commutes, or events when you need or want a mask.
Best Mask on the Planet
Hands down the best mask on the planet. The Nano-Air fabric is smooth and cool. The best part is you don't have straps behind your ears holding the mask in place so my ears don't get angry! The mask was so comfy - especially long travel days in airports and planes I had to buy a second one.
There are lots of positive reviews here, so maybe my face is shaped funny, but I was not a fan of these masks. First, the massive tag on the inside that literally goes across the whole mask is super impractical for a face mask. You can rip it out, but then the info should just be included in a card separately in the first place. It also didnt fit... Read More right with my face. When the strap was over my ears, the mask was pulled so far up it was practically in my eyes. Pulled down, it gave me elf ears. I measured to ensure I bought the right size, but maybe I needed to size up? I also thought the fabric was suspiciously thin and doubt it provides much protection. Finally, maybe non-ear loop masks just arent for some people. As someone with longer hair, the over-the-head style immediately interferes with hair and is hard to take on and off neatly.
Great for Nordic skiing in groups and casual wear
I used this when at Nordic ski practice, which was required by our club last year. Ive also worn it consistently over the past year when indoors. I recently ordered an additional one because I find it to be my preferred mask, and lets face it: masking isnt going away any time soon (no pun intended). Its comfortable, light weight and breathable, but... Read More still tightly woven and double layered to provide protection. It air dries quickly after washing and has kept its shape and elasticity. The straps are also very well thought out and easy to adjust and pull on and off. Its lightweight and breathable enough to wear while doing intense cardio activities such as skate skiing.
Very efficient for daily use
I am in and out of buildings all day. This mask makes it super easy to mask on / mask off with one hand - keep the lower loop around the neck and slip the top to the crown of my head. I bought 4 so I can rotate regularly. They wash and dry very quickly. Its made a big difference in my routine. I cant recommend these highly enough.
My go-to mask
Im a Patagonia retail employee and I wear this masks for 9 hours straight 5 days a week. Even when Im not at work, this is my go-to mask. I own at least a dozen of them at this point. I love that they dont leave gaps and that they dont hurt my ears during a long day of wear. Im one criticism is that they tend to suck into your mouth if theyre wet a... Read Morend youre breathing hard. (Seems very specific, but I cant wear it riding my bike in the rain.) but it seems like we dont need to be masking outside anyway. FWIW, customers get a little disappointed that they dont have the patagonia label on them.
This mask is far and away the best I've tried. The fabric is really nice, doesn't trap humidity like other materials. Also the double head straps are much easier and comfortable than masks with ear loops, I wear this around my neck when outside for work then pop it up with one motion before entering a building. Worth the 15 bucks.
Every part of this mask is stretchy. Its also lightweight and Plwats in the mask keeps the material from hugging your nose and moth so you can still breath comfortably. I also like that the straps go around your head instead of ears so you can let it hang around your neck when not in use
Best mask I have found
I am a high school teacher so I wear a mask all day and I have to do a lot of talking. I have tried many masks and this is by far the best one I have found. It fits well, is comfortable, doesnt make me feel as if I am suffocating when I talk, and it doesnt move (fall off my nose or pull up below my chin) when I talk. Feels super light and does not ... Read Moreconstantly irritate or tickle my face like many other masks I have tried. Nice color as well.
Best mask ever!
I love this great mask as you can put it around your neck and not worry about losing it. It provides good protection and is breathable. I have worn a variety of masks during this pandemic and this one is the absolute best. I would love to see it offered in more colors.
Love the mask but the label?
Love the mask. The stretchy ties are a very nice touch. The enormous product label inside seems a bad idea. And, even if it is snipped out it will likely leave a stub. Seems like it wasn't well planned out. I'd have given a 5 but label placement is a definite loss of 1 star

Hello Elliott, we appreciate you taking the time to leave a review. For comfort, the tear-away labels can be removed—just give them a slight tug or cut them off.
Best mask available
The masks are not going away... This mask was engineered with the user in mind. No stress on the ears. The tie end works perfect for a loose fit on the neck. The mask fits comfortably on the face, and the top elastic band is almost ideal for any situation. The only time I have had trouble putting it on, it when I am wearing a ball cap, forward.
I BOUGHT S/M M/L SIZE. I LOVE BOTH OF THEM. THE S/M IS A TRUE SIZE FITS MY FACE. WITH M/L I CAN DOUBLE MASK INSIDE,WHICH IS NICE. THE ONLY SUCKY PART IS THAT WHEN I BREATHE, THE MASK SUCKS INTO MY NOSE OR MOUTH (MOUTH BREATHER). BUT I BOUGHT THIS COOL TURTLE FROM HOMEDEPOT AND IT WORKED.

Purchased this mask when mask requirements first started and havent looked back. Its the only mask I wear now. They way it fits around your head makes it very easy to pull down if youre eating/drinking and it is perfect for working out. Also I purchased the blue and it was darker than expected, but looks better than pictured
So small it hurts..
This mask has all the right ingredients to be the perfect face mask. The material is lightweight and soft, the appearance is neutral and cool. Unfortunately the tightness mentioned by other users is very uncomfortable. I bought a small for myself and a large for my partner.

There are much better masks on the market for far less $$. I'll be returning.
Needs nose wire and filter pocket
I love where the profits go, and the practicality and better protection of the ties. However, without a nose wire and filter pocket the mask is not useful for me! A nose wire fits the mask more closely to my face (better safety for others) and combined with a filter pocket with a paper towel or coffee filter inside, masks don't fog my glasses ...

Thank you for this valuable feedback on our Nano-Air Face Mask. This is the first mask we've made, and more information on what is truly effective has come out since then. Doubling up this mask with a disposable underneath could definitely help and is what currently aligns with CDC recommendations. With that said, we're grateful for the review and want you to know that if you feel unhappy with your purchase, you're welcome to [send it back](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Nice material, breathes well
The material is soft and breathable and very lightweight. I find breathing to be comfortable and not restricted. The mask covers my face easily from the bridge of my nose to under my chin. I don't have a big head/face and there is plenty of extra length left after tying it around the back of my neck. Seems like it would accommodate most head... Read More sizes. I was initially on the fence between the smaller vs larger size. I'm glad I went larger. I think most adults would be happier with the larger size for better coverage and comfort.
I've bought a ton of different face mask to solve the problem of glasses steaming up, including those plastic face mask brackets, and nothing has worked....until I tried these mask. The fabric really does breath very well although I wish there was a pocket for filters. I was worried the head strap wasn't going to be either too tight or to... Read Moreo lose, but it's actually perfect and holds well while still being able to take on and off freely. The salesman at the S.F. store recommended putting on a small plastic toggle lock to hold the bottom two straps together so you can adjust their tightness and length much easier. Lastly I have found these mask for some reason, in typical Patagonia fashion, look better than other mask which makes wearing them in added plus.
Lightweight breathable mask
Love the lightweight feel of this mask. Breathable for hiking and running and doesn't get damp and sweated out like some.

Read Moreavily and find that the fabric sits too close to my mouth -- for those times, I really prefer masks that have a nose clip to allow some space between the fabric and face. But otherwise a great mask (and fits smaller faces well).
Very soft but Small fit
I have a normal to small sized head and thought the small would fit better than the medium, but it is actually tight. The material, while very soft and comfortable and high quality , kind of sticks to your mouth because it is so thin. I wanted to love this because it is made very well but I havent worn it much.

I bought this mask for myself (XS/S - I have a small head/face) and for my husband (M/L). We both love these masks (easily our favorites).

Too Loose and Too Tight?
I'm not sure how it's possible but this mask is both too tight and too loose simultaneously! The top elastic is too tight resulting in discomfort around my nose, but the mouth area is too loose allowing the fabric to migrate into my mouth when i talk. I agree with another reviewer, for quick trips to the grocery with minimum interaction t... Read Morehis mask is fine, but for work or any activity that requires frequent comunication this mask immediately sucks into my mouth and becomes very wet and saggy.

Excellent except for one thing
This is a great lightweight face mask. I walk to work every day and spend time walking around a pretty hilly campus. I needed a mask for everyday use as well as going on runs and climbing. This is a very breathable and lightweight mask that I can sometimes almost forget I'm wearing. The one problem is that it seems to hold quite a stink. My o... Read Morether face masks don't keep this stink despite being made of thicker material. Obviously this says something about my coffee breath, but it's notable to me that this mask seems stinkier than my cotton or disposable ones.
This is a great quality mask, however the sizing is way off! As a petite female and based on reading the reviews, I went with the xs/s and it is so tight and uncomfortable it hurts my ears and leaves marks on my face. Would like to exchange but dont think that is an option with masks.

Want to Love
I was so excited about getting these masks, I ordered three! They are super comfortable, a load off my ears, and are so easy to wash.

I end up having to hold the mask away from my mouth when Im talking, which makes for a frustrating inte... Read Moreraction. Additionally, the fabric sometimes irritates my skin, leaving my face a little red. Ive noticed this only happens with the blue mask, not the black masks, though. Overall, I still like the mask because it doesnt pull on my ears, but the eating the mask thing is certainly a drag.
I love the the mask, just wish it had a metal nose strip to stop my breath from going into my eyes. Maybe I will try and sew one in. Otherwise, it is a very comfortable mask. Love that it hangs around the neck and is super quick and easy to throw back on when needed.
I am completely satisfied with this mask ! I can breath in this mask. I was not able to breath I.

After trying tons of masks designed for outdoor activities, I've settled on this this as one of my favorites.

It's also comfortable and can be worn under a helmet which is great. The only thing I wish it had is a flexible nose bridge as the only gaps in this mask (on my face) are between the bridge of my nose and my cheeks. A bit of air escapes and enters through that gap making it slightly less effective and with prolonged use, that air irritates my eyes. I also wear it with a silicon mask bracket to keep the fabric away from my mouth and with the exception of the previously mentioned nose/cheek gap, it works great! All in all, it's an awesome mask and I just ordered more so I can swap them throughout the day.
Love this mask!!
I bought both sizes figuring hubby could wear the larger, but the M/L does fit better on my round face than the S/M.

Was skeptical, but gladly proven wrong
At first I was wary of buying a face mask that wasnt elastic ear loops, but put my faith in the companys ability to innovate everything they do- thankfully it paid off. The mask is comfortable, light, and form-fitting. Additionally, the straps all have a bit of stretch to them which helps immensely. 10/10
Great mask that doesn't drop below your nose
The mask is great in that it is secure enough to stay in place while you are having a conversation (other masks that I have purchased tend to slide down as I speak). The fact that it loops completely around the back of your head means that you can slide it down to your neck while eating/drinking, and then just pull it up when you are done.
This is one of my best and favorite masks for Covid safety. Does not say or drool over time.

Very Nice and Very Premium
This mask is very comfortable. It takes the pressure off of my ears with the elastic strap. I think that loose end that needs to be tied together is a little unnecessary for me personally, although others may find the ability to adjust the fit comforting. I did try to blow out a candle and I was unable to do so. I have also found that the light mat... Read Moreerial is able to wick away moisture better than cotton. I haven't personally used it for exercising or other strenuous activities however it does fit snugly and I feel it is very secure. I really like the way it continues down past my chin and almost to my adam's apple. I have found that many masks become loose when I speak and my jaw pulls the material down off of my nose. That hasn't been a problem so far. I have to say that overall the mask just feels very premium and I am very happy with it. I have ordered another one for my girlfriend because I am happy. In the pictures on the website, I thought the color was black but in person, I would probably call it more of a charcoal color or very dark grey. It's not an issue for me but others may want to know.
Not good for hiking
I was hoping this mask would be an improvement on my disposable ear-loop N95 masks, but it's not. The fabric on this mask is too loose and makes it hard to breath during a hike or bike ride. The obvious thing is to take it off, but without ear-loops this mask takes longer to put back on when someone is passing on the trail (again, my ear-loop ... Read MoreN95 masks are super quick to put back on). I still use my N95 masks for mountain biking as well (as they are pointed like a beak and are aerodynamic as well). All in all, this Patagonia face mask is great for non-aerobic longterm wear (like, if you're walking around town) but nothing that requires huffing and puffing. Nice materials, but bad design for athletic activities.
Response from PatagoniaDecember 5, 2020
Thanks for leaving us a review on our Nano-Air Face Mask. Unfortunately, this mask would not be comparable to an N95, as that mask is created specifically for healthcare workers and includes a respirator. This mask is more for day to day use, though you are still welcome to use it while on the trail! We'd recommend tying it around your neck, that way it is easy to take it on and off when need be. With that said, if you are unsatisfied this mask is covered by our Ironclad Guarantee and you are welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
