Cities across the country have mandated wearing face masks in public, as the winter and colder temperatures take over. We've culled our massive list of face mask styles for the best face masks to breathe in and exercise in to get you through your run or workout safely and comfortably.
According to the sporting goods company StringKing, a mask's effectiveness comes down to its balance of filtration and breathability properties. Breathability is especially crucial when you're moving around, breathing harder, exercising and sweating. When choosing the best mask for working out, look for knit (versus woven) fabrics, which have elasticity for a better fit, absorb moisture and allow for more air flow.
Sportswear brands like Reebok and activewear companies like Onzie have stepped up and started producing effective yet breathable face masks to help slow the spread of coronavirus cases without disrupting your exercise routine.
Infused with antibacterial silver nano particle, this Hammacher Schlemmer face mask protects from bacteria and odors. The breathable fabric feels cool on the skin. Plus, it comes with five disposable filters.
