We doubt we’re alone in saying that during the past month we’ve absorbed more information about face-masks than we ever thought possible. It’s abundantly clear to us now that not all masks are created equal. The bandana you’re tying loosely around your face is a great option, but there are other form-fitting masks to explore as well. One such mask is Tekto Gear’s high-end, street-ready Takta mask, which just got restocked on its site. It uses not one, but five filters to remove up to 95% of particles down to 0.3 micros. The mask also features superior ventilation through Tekto’s Dual Valve System, meaning not only will you be inhaling fresh, clean air — you’ll be “breathing easily,” so to speak. Finally, Tekto is giving Gear Patrol readers 10% off with the code GP10 — but act fast, as these masks tend to sell out quickly.
