The BUFF® Filter Mask utilizes BUFF®’s 95% recycled CoolNet UV+® fabric, to create an articulated shape and adjustable design with performance features such as HeiQ cooling technology, breathability, and UPF 50 sun protection. The lightweight mask covers mouth, nose, and chin with an ergonomic construction that eliminates back-of-ear pressure point discomfort with two back-of-head adjustable straps.

A thin mesh interior pocket treated with HeiQ V-Block® antimicrobial treatment and bonded by silicon tape around the mouth area, holds a 3-layer recyclable filter inserted by the user. Each individual BUFF® Replacement Filter offers up to 24 hours of use wherein 98% of airborne particles are filtered. The filter is binder-free, latex-free, glue-free, and fiberglass-free.

“The safety of our communities depends on a shared sense of responsibility, as well as the effectiveness of facemasks,” said Kevin Walker, Marketing Manager at Buff, Inc. “Although unanticipated, developing a product to meet the safety needs of our consumers is a natural evolution for us. Our brand mission has always been to protect consumers from harmful natural elements and we see this filter mask as an extension of that goal. We hope the fit, function, and comfort of our filter mask encourages users to practice protection for the wellbeing of themselves and others.”

As a part of a corporate alliance with UNICEF, global sales from the BUFF® Filter Mask will be included in BUFF®’s donation pledge - two percent of its worldwide profits - to help fight COVID-19 in vulnerable communities.

The BUFF® Filter Mask ($29 MSRP - Adult and $27 MSRP- Junior) that includes the mask and five 3-layer filters can be purchased only on buffusa.com in adult and junior color options. A Replacement Filter Pack ($22 MSRP) that includes 30 units is also available for purchase on buffusa.com.
