people), UA got right to work and started building prototypes for athletes, trainers, and fitness enthusiasts.

Wear this mask for running? Yes – that’s what it is designed for. If it will work for running, it’ll work for anything else too.

How did UA do this?

They use high-performance UA materials, and this mask is designed to be worn all day and when playing sports or exercising.

The mask uses a 3 layer setup. The structured face mask design sits up off of your face and lips.

This means improved comfort and most importantly – breathability.

This is NOT a medical mask – so don’t use it for surgery or in a health care setting.

It should not be considered as Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) but it should help prevent the spread of viruses and germs through droplet transmission.

The 3-layer system does meet the WHO recommendations for a fabric face mask.

What’s it made out of? The outer layer is 100% Polyester, the insert is 100% Polyurethane, and interior of the mask and ear loops are made from stretchy 77% Nylon/23% Spandex.
