To aid in prolonged usage, each mask boasts an internal coated nose wire that molds around the nose to prevent fogging glasses and irritation from constant adjustment. A third layer of interfacing is a blown material that holds a negative charge, which adds a substantial layer of protection against airborne pathogens.
The special limited edition hard shell transparent case is made of synthetic leather for easy maintenance. Perfect for carrying your PPE essentials.

Support workers and donate to those in need. In addition to producing these masks for Aviator, our factory has also coordinated with the city of Los Angeles to manufacture and donate masks to local hospitals. These masks are different from the Aviator masks and are specially designed for hospital workers and administrators. They are not available for sale or additional donation, because the city has already allocated our factory’s supply. But your Aviator purchase will still help support this cause and keep our factory working. Together, we can stay safe and healthy!
