Whether you’re immunocompromised or you’re just not ready to relax all the COVID-19 precautions you’ve been taking, you’re not alone. Remaining diligent in the fight against COVID-19 is still important, and wearing a protective face mask is simple way to keep yourself a bit safer.

When it comes to face masks, everyone pretty much agrees that cloth designs don’t cut it. Instead, many experts recommend people wear N95 masks. N95 masks are said to block out 95% of germs and other particles in the air.

On Amazon, the sheer number of results that show up when you search N95 face masks is dizzying. How can a regular person decide the best mask to buy? Luckily, The Wirecutter folks at the NY Times put a slew of N95 face masks to the test and determined the Kimberly-Clark PROFESSIONAL N95 Pouch Respirator is one of the absolute best.

Though the shape and look of the mask are a bit different than most, rest assured it’s a smart buy. According to the team at The Wirecutter, this mask is “oddly comfortable.” They go on to say, “Its headbands are soft yet help form a tight seal, and its long nose-bridge wire reduces glasses fogging.”

Amazon shoppers are equally as pleased with this N95 mask. It has more than 11,000 ratings, and one shopper commented, “[This mask has a] flexible fit, comfortable airflow, stays off nose and mouth, stays secure, does not fog glasses!”

Another customer wrote, “I found these masks very easy to put on, and I love that they don’t hang from your ears. They have a nice soft texture and fit securely without digging into your face. I found breathing in them to be very comfortable, and I wore one for the entire day.”

For a limited time only, a pack of 50 of these N95 masks is on sale for just $46. Don’t miss the opportunity to stock up on the best N95 mask. These masks will definitely come in handy as you’re out and about while trying to keep yourself safe from COVID-19.
