Vancouver, B.C. and Los Angeles, May 19, 2020 – Since 2006, Airhole has developed and led the facemask industry with technical fabrics, tailored fits and real-life experience. Airhole’s mission has always been to defend adventurers from the elements, and in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Airhole is focused on using their resources, expertise and supply chain to provide durable, modern, daily face protection.
Airhole’s newly initiated Daily Mask Program helps contribute to the increased demand of reliable daily protective gear, suitable for all essential social interaction including going to the grocery store, pharmacy or gas station.
With more than fourteen years of experience creating reliable facemasks, Airhole has decided to remove the company’s classic design airhole from the styles included in the Daily Mask Program collection, and for a very good cause. The Daily Masks have been designed based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines with three layers of fabric that offer higher air permeability and bacterial filtration efficiency.
Customers have three dependable styles to choose from Basic Mask, Advanced Mask and Ergonomic Mask. The Daily Mask styles are reusable and sold in packs of five, as they should be washed after each use.
During these unprecedented times, governments around the globe have issued safety recommendations while in public spaces, many of which mandate face covering. As new information is released daily, it is more important than ever for individuals to do their part in preventing the spread of the virus.
While the purpose is to reduce the spread of viruses, Airhole’s daily wear masks are not a replacement for medical-grade Personal Protective Equipment and is not intended to replace other recommended measures. It is important to continue to follow CDC guidelines, practice social distancing, washing your hands and refraining from touching your face.
About Airhole: Airhole is built for a life outdoors and protects adventurers from the elements with the world’s best technical and fashionable face protection. Tired of the lack of technical face protection available and facing severe weather in the backcountry, Canadian professional snowboarders Chris Brown and Kale Stephens knew there had to be a better way of dealing with a wet mask from heavy breathing and extreme conditions.
Taking to Kale’s grandma’s old sewing machine, they re-purposed discarded outerwear jackets, cutting them into different shapes, sizes and fits to find the perfect mask. The result was the patented Airhole breath hole built into ergonomically shaped masks made from technical fabrics. Since 2006 Airhole has continued to develop and lead the facemask industry with technical fabrics, tailored fits and the best graphics. Our mission: to defend adventurers from the elements.
