    Super comfortable and sturdy with a unique print. Favorite mask finally found my favorite mask 8 months in.

    Awesome mask, awesome design!

    I love this mask! The design is so cool and it's totally comfortable. You can feel the quality in the fabric and the foam covered nose strip is perfect. I especially love the cooperative work with WMCAT!

    Great gifts!

    I received 2 masks and lanyards for my birthday and loved the quality and design so much I ordered one for each of my family members! The aspect that makes these masks unique from all of my other masks is the padded and adjustable nose piece. It tents my nose up top to contain outflow, but also allows comfortable inflow (no mask in the nostrils!).

    I ordered these on a Tuesday evening and selected delivery ($5 or so for shipping) as opposed to free pick up at their location - which is NOT on Division Ave where Apple Maps took me :) Actual address: 1405 Buchanan. It arrived in a week!

    Thank you, Janay and team!
