Why did this mask fail?
video transcriptHey, everyone. Welcome back to The Place. We're testing every single mask on Amazon, including the Rose Mask. It's bigger than a walleye. Why give your wife flowers when you can give her a Rose Mask? Let's open this up and see what's going on because this is a weird one. This box is bigger than a walleye. That's right. I'm from Minnesota. Look it up.
Look at this. This is very weird. Okay. Well it's made in Korea, so it's not necessarily weird because they are so great at packaging there, but that's just odd to me that 50 pack and then 10 in each one. I mean it's kind of delightful, almost. This is like giving flowers your wife. All right, open this up. Now this is a KF94 mask. And what I know about KF94 is, is that they're awesome. I have never had a legitimate KF94 that's failed on my machine, but I have ones that had that look like KF94, fail.
It evened out. We got it. Just let it rip. This is a PFE machine. A particulate filtration efficiency machine. If you want to find out more about how this works, check out that link. We're basically doing the N95 test on this. The 94 in KF94 stands for 94% protection. The KF94 is a Korean standard. The Korean FDA basically regulates this. And from what I can tell, the Korean FDA is very crazy about making sure that folks adhere to the standard. As crazy as the NIOSH, as crazy as NIOSH.
One thing that's cool is every KF94 is made in Korea. If it's not made in Korea, it's not technically a KF94. That is pretty neat. I love the design of the mask. The way it fits on your face. It does have a little bit of leakage but it's very comfortable and it doesn't look super weird, you know. It's a good look. This one does smell like burning. Like something's burning. That's what I would call it. Something's burning.
But that is actually very common. It's not an offensive smell because I like burning things. I don't know, but it fits really nice. It doesn't hurt my ears. It's a good quality mask. And typically, they test really well. You know, I think for the cost on this, and the packaging and how beautiful it is, and the fact that... Let's do it, it's hitting 99.4 with 131 breathability. You want to be under 150. Under 150, you can breathe in that thing all day long. Personal opinion there. 99.43 on the final one. This is a dang good mask.
All right. Thank you guys so much for watching. I appreciated this. If you end up buying this mask, which heck I say, go ahead and do it. Buy the mask, buy the Rose Mask and get it to your wife as a joke. That'd be hilarious. In fact, I'm going to bring this home to my wife tonight and I'm going to be like, because my wife's sick right now, I'm going to be like, "Hey, I heard you were sick, so I got you flowers." That's what's going to happen. This is actually happening. I'm doing that. Putting this aside right here. That's funny. She's going to hate that. So if you also... You can do the same thing. All right. Thank you guys so much for watching and I will catch you on the next test.
"The is a dang good mask."
Filtration above 99% coupled with breathability below 150...and super comfortable to wear. Like all KF94s it has a bit of a smell at first, but all in all this is a solid pick for anyone who prefers the boat style of mask.
