With so many face cover options currently on the market, you may be wondering what features to look for when you shop. Read on for our quick overview of face cover features.
What to Look for When Shopping for Face Covers
How many layers does your face cover have? When it comes to protection, many experts now believe that more layers are better. Some experts are even recommending doubling up on face covers. A simpler option is to look for masks with two or more layers of washable material, which is what the CDC currently recommends.
A CLOSE FIT
The CDC advises that face covers should fit snugly against the sides of your face, with no gaps. When shopping for face covers, ear adjusters may help tighten the cover to your face and provide a customizable fit.
We think that the more comfortable a face cover is, the more likely you are to wear it. Fabrics like cotton are typically comfortable against the face for all-day wear, and provide protection while still feeling lightweight.
EASY ON/OFF TRANSITION
Hate forgetting your mask in the car? So do we. Having an action strap/neck hanger attached to your face cover can help you easily transition your mask on and off without forgetting it. If you need to eat or drink, your mask will still be hanging around your neck for when you need to replace it.

Which K&N Face Cover is Right for You?
SINGLE LAYER POLYESTER: BREATHABLE
Our single layer polyester face covers are designed for high breathability, and are ideal for outdoor activities like running, lifting weights, or working on your car. An easy-to-use neck hanger makes it simple to take your mask on and off, so you can easily take a sip of water without losing track of your cover. Choose from black, gray, and camo prints.
DUAL LAYER COTTON: PROTECTIVE + COMFORTABLE
These double-layer cotton masks provide an increase in protection from particles over the single-layer version, with the comfort of lightweight, breathable cotton. We use this cover for indoor workouts, visiting our favorite auto parts retailers, or working outside in dusty environments. Available in black.
DUAL LAYER COTTON/POLYESTER: COMFORTABLE + BREATHABLE
These dual-layer masks feature an interior cotton/spandex blend to help provide all-day comfort and a lightweight feel, and are enhanced with a SILVERPLUS® treatment to reduce odor and provide enhanced protection from airborne contaminants. We use these covers for both indoor and outdoor wear (while staying socially distanced, of course). Choose from black, gray, and camo prints.
