Since wearing a mask during a high-aerobic activity like basketball is new to us, I ordered three different brands that had been listed as good for running. My son decided the Western Rise wool mask is the best choice. At 6'9" he is a big guy but the L/XL fits from bridge of nose to under chin. The only knock on it is it gaps a bit at the ears.
Over all experience was very good. Only critique is that the length from the bridge of the nose to the bottom end of the chin feels about a half inch too short. If it were that much longer I would be 100% stratified. Thank you very much for offering this product in merino wool. Love it.
Had high hopes for the large strongcore mask...but...when I opened the package upon delivery I noticed several loose threads. Additionally, it’s just an unflattering fit - the mask sort of doesn’t lay flat on the face. I believe because there’s an opening for a filter, the sides jut outwards. If I were to go to the smaller size, I don’t believe it would reach over my nose and chin - and I have a smaller/average sized head/face for a guy. I immediately told customer service about the loose threads and they sent a new one within a few days. The new mask was in much better shape and construction, but still not a great fit. So while I would not buy this mask again - on a positive note, WR has great merino materials, and phenomenal customer service.
Hands down best I’ve ever worn. Proof positive that style and performance don’t have to be mutually exclusive. Classic look welcomes compliments. Effective design doesn’t interfere with breathing, speaking, Etc. One size fits all design is better than the rest but can be improved. Expand size at jaw line so bottom of mask will effectively cover enough of the tip of the chin to not slip when person’s facial expressions routinely & frequently change. Also, improve stitching process to prevent threads from coming out after repeated use/washing. I own too and plan on purchasing more. I’m so glad I found you’re company; you are the absolute pinnacle!
Hello Alex. Thanks for reaching out with your feedback and great to hear that the StrongCore Face Mask is working out mostly well for you. First off, thanks for the feedback on sizing, I passed this along to our design team to consider for future versions. As far as the stitching goes, since this is a knot mask some thread pulling should be expected and these threads should be able to be trimmed off without affecting the durability, however if you do have any issues with the mask becoming unwearable due to this, feel free to reach out as the stitching is covered under our warranty. I hoep this info. helps and thanks again for your feedback and support! Please feel free to reach out if you have any other questions or if there is anything else we can help you with.
Great material. A bit tight however. I wish I would have considered my big nose and got a large. Overall not a bad purchase
