The goal was to create the best technical face mask for daily use. 686 paid close attention to every detail, material and finish and how they influenced fit, comfort and performance.
The end result: a combination of performance stretch fabrics, antimicrobial Polygeine® ViralOff finish all around, hypoallergenic merino wool blend inner surface, and low profile stretch 4-point cording to create a mask suited for daily activities, travel, extended wear and performance on the trail and in the gym.

Polyamide Nylon for added filtration.
Fit and Sizing:
S/M: 9” wide x 4” tall, L/XL 9” wide x 5” tall (not including straps)
This fitted ergonomic mask is meant to be comfortable for extended periods of use. The contoured fit minimizes movement during use and the nose dart helps snuggly fit most faces without smashing the wearers nose. Two independent adjustable flat elastic straps with soft PU cord locks help create long-term and active comfort and a consistent seal while limiting air-leaks. The straps remove strain on the ears and allow the user to wear the mask around the neck or shoulder when not in use. Soft PU cord locks fit comfortably under hats and helmets.
ViralOff by Polygiene®:
A special antimicrobial treatment applied to the inner and outer layers of each mask to protect the product from contamination. ViralOff is not intended to prevent disease. It is used for protection of the treated product.
ViralOff works by using silver ions to attract and deactivate microbes that land on the surface of a textile. It passes ISO18184:2019 testing. Antimicrobial is defined as inhibiting the growth of microorganisms. ViralOff remains effective through at least 30 washes. Unless the mask is noticeably soiled there is a reduced need to wash the mask after each use.
Cloth face masks are not medical grade and aren't replacements for N95 or surgical masks.
WASH BEFORE FIRST USE. Machine Wash Cold, Hang Dry. No Bleach, No Dry Clean. No Iron. To extend ViralOff treatment limit washing until mask is noticeably soiled.
