Review of the Body Helix Ultra-Light Face Mask

We’ve all see the social hashtag #MaskUp as the pandemic continues in 2020. Wearing a mask is optional in some places, but mandated in several areas. I personally know several runners who mask up on every run, per local health guidelines. While it is not currently mandated to mask when running in Kentucky, many of us choose to wear a mask on our run to help minimize the spread of COVID-19…enter the Body Helix Ultra-Light Face Mask…it is a game changer!

Prior to receiving my Body Helix mask, I was using handmade masks or cotton gaiters on runs, especially when passing others on crowded routes. I felt very hot when wearing them and quite frankly, I wasn’t sure how protected I was using these types of masks. Features of the Body Helix mask I feel like you should know about include: the nasal bridge wire strip to control air leakage, flexible closed-cell fabric that helps to prevent transmission of viruses, and disposable filters that help reduce risk of transmission. Most importantly, I enjoy their statement on compliance:

CDC COMPLIANT

Complies with CDC recommendations for use by the general public. Our closed-cell technology fabric prevents potential asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic transmission and the included filters add another layer of protection.

Once I received the mask, I have to say my first impression is that the mask is uber -comfortable. The 0.5 mm fabric makes this mask so lightweight; I also love the feel of the material. This mask is available in various sizes; I highly recommend measuring for the best fit. You can see my unboxing video below to get an idea on how well it fits.

I have really enjoyed wearing the mask to run in, but also to go to the grocery or other places that get “people-y”. I cannot really come up with any cons to this mask. Some users report putting the filters on may not have the desired results, but I personally have not had an issue with this.
