Masking the Masses
It’s been a rough…ahem…roughly three weeks since social distancing guidelines were first introduced across the nation. The novel idea stressed the notion that involuntary isolation would help to mitigate the spread of the novel Covid19 virus. Surely an unexpected effort that’d be rendered just shy of unbelievable when the decade first began 23 months ago (Oh, we’re only 3 months in, you say...?)
But overall, it seems people are more or less taking the precautions seriously. Perhaps in part due to Netflix’s Tiger King, which up until now has placated us with a cast that one could argue should have been isolated long before reaching primetime streaming platforms.
But in all seriousness, leaving the confines of our home is at times necessary to retrieve essential items such as groceries, prescriptions and for some employees, to go to work. But in doing so, how are we to protect ourselves?
Since rumblings first began spreading around the virus’s spread, there’s been an acute shift in life as we know it. We now share an understanding that the nightly news preluding our slumber will be vastly different by the time we wake, more often than not relaying Covid19 reports that directly conflict updates we received just a few hours prior. This theme has been particularly present in shared information around how the virus is transmitted and the actions we can take to exercise caution against contracting it, as well as infecting others.
Paralyzed in the crossfire of the debate was the argument of whether or not the general population should utilize face masks, when hospitals around the nation were posed with a very realistic threat of running out of them.
Well that debate was finally settled last week when the CDC published a statement recommending that every American should wear a non-medical mask or cloth covering their mouth and nose when going out in public. They supported the bold announcement by suggesting that this precaution could help prevent individuals from contracting the virus. This comes as no shock in light of studies that suggest infected individuals can reach up to two weeks before displaying any symptoms of carrying the virus.
So how do these masks work?
The medical community has determined that Covid19 is most often spread through person-to-person contact. If a carrier sneezes, coughs or even talks, they unknowingly produce respiratory droplets that host the virus. An uninfected individual within close enough proximity may catch the droplets on their nose or in their mouth and become the virus’s next victim. Up until now, citizens have been encouraged to maintain six feet of separation; but with the virus continuing to spread exponentially, more drastic measures have been deemed necessary. When wearing a face mask, the fabric acts as a barrier between the virus and access points that it can enter through on your body. Two of the most susceptible points are your nose and mouth which is why there’s such an emphasis on the importance of keeping them covered.
Introducing the xMask
The health, wellness and style of our customers is our top priority. That’s why we’ve decided to align with the CDC’s recommendation and add a whole new layer to our collection, by offering a protective layer for your face.
The severity of the Covid19 spread cannot be ignored which is why our team has been working around the clock to offer a defense system that will help prevent you from becoming infected. Available for rush delivery today, this machine-washable collection adheres to standards comparable to that of the American N95 mask. Designed with unsurpassed safety features relied upon by medical professionals working in the most hazardous of conditions, it's guaranteed to filter 95% of particles to 0.3μm in size.
It’s important to understand that these respiratory droplets carrying the virus are so minute that the capacity for them to slip through the slightest opening should not be underestimated. That’s why each xMask is equipped with an adjustable Velcro strap that can be tightened to properly restrict any particles from reaching your mouth or nose. Unlike other prototypes that lack the quality protection you need; we’ve engineered our masks with sophisticated K95 technology to guarantee your protection.
Even better, those wearing for extended periods of time don’t have to worry about compromising their comfort for protection. Designed with soft stretch material, each mask features an adjustable nose clip that will serve as further protection against air leakage regardless of your face shape.
In addition to superior protection that you can trust, xMask is built with a dual valve system to promote breathability. This ventilation system operates by transporting exhaled air out of the mask to avoid excess moisture and warmth. In doing so, it safeguards any unfiltered air from reaching your face.
The KN95 mask’s level of protection relies on the filter which is why xMask is designed with five layers varying in degrees of density. Built to intercept any particles before reaching your lungs, this level of protection is essentially impenetrable from harmful droplets. Each filter provides no less than 100 hours of longevity, at which point you switch out with a fresh replacement unit.
Protection Suits Everyone
Despite being known for our luxury collections designed for men, we believe that keeping healthy is a look that suits anyone.
