The Active mask delivers advanced comfort, superior breathability and lightweight protection
Award-winning air wearables brand Airpop has released an innovative mask designed specifically for use during exercise.
The reusable Airpop Active mask is made with cutting-edge fabrics and AirPop’s patented 3D Air Dome design making it durable, lightweight, comfortable and stylish.
Featuring disposable, snap-in filters that block 99.97 PM0.3, including dust, bacteria, and viral matter the mask delivers up to 40 hours of use before needing a filter change.
Available in black and green, yellow and black and grey and white, the Active mask is stylish as well as comfortable.
The mask features AirPop’s patented 3D Air Dome design which creates a canopy of clean air and balanced air circulation for the wearer, resulting in better breathability and wearability.
The Adaptive Soft Touch Seal with an articulating top layer helps to achieve the perfect fit and can be adjusted to accommodate larger sizes. It creates a flexible seal around the critical nose bridge area which helps to enhance comfort and significantly reduces fogging for glasses wearers.
Additionally, the mask is made with cutting-edge fabrics that deliver strength and flexibility while remaining lightweight and easy to clean. All materials used to create the unique replaceable filter system have been rigorously tested to meet US & European ASTM F2100 & EN 14683:2019 performance standards for filtration efficiency, breathability and fluid resistance.
Chris Hosmer, Founder of AirPop, said: “We are very excited to launch the Active mask to UK consumers. This product embodies the AirPop mission - enabling people to take control of their respiratory freedom through science, innovation and technology.
“We believe that breathing freely is a human right - in 2012 my two-year-old daughter, who was born in Shanghai, suffered an acute and sustained respiratory reaction to noxious air.
“This personal experience led me to found AirPop in 2015 to advance respiratory protection through innovative consumer products designed to put performance first for everyday use - as well as active outdoor activities.”
Named a World Changing Idea finalist by Fast Company Magazine in 2018, the Active mask, alongside AirPop’s other flagship mask the Original, have been celebrated with design awards including a Red Dot product design award, an IF Design Award in 2017, Japan’s Good Design Award, an IDSA Design award and a Core77 Design Awards 2018.
