Why did this mask fail?


Video Transcript Hey, everyone. Welcome back to the place we're testing every single mask on Amazon. Today we are looking at KF94s, which is a super cool format from South Korea if you haven't seen it. Talk about why I like that. Looking at the Sheal 50 piece. That's right.

Look at that mamma jamma. There's 50 in there, versus this one we just tested. Look at this. This is 50 masks, this one is 50 masks. 50 masks, 50 masks. Which one do you think fits in a shipping container better? Figure in out, big guy. Come on. Well, I haven't even opened it yet to see, but excited that this is a much smaller package. I love the packaging on the KF94s because it's really cool usually.

Oh, actually, wow. That's why it's so small. This is the lamest KF94 package I've ever seen. Usually it's like these big, beautiful nicely made ones. This one is not even sealed. It's just out there in front of God and everybody. Look at that, just flops out. All right. All right, let's get it in the clamp where we'll talk more about this. This is interesting, but it does come in five colors which I will tell you as a manufacturer is very hard to do. It probably means that this box was packaged manually, it's what we had to do when we were offering multiple colors. Our number one request is, "Bring back the rainbow pack." Ain't doing it, too expensive.

This is a PFE machine, particulate filtration efficiency machine. If you want to find out what all these little magical numbers are, I'm going to put a link up there. Talk more about this guy here. I'm going to look at the colors. It says there's five colors. Oh yeah. See that is like hot, hot, hot pink. I mean, that pink is burning.

And the blue too, I just saw a blue like that. So KF94 is a Korean format. It actually has to be made in South Korea, which allows the Korean FDA the ability to really police all the brand which is why I think... I don't think I've ever had a real KF94 that was labeled KF94 that didn't pass standards. Never had it.

Look at this. Hot pink. Oh, come on. That's not good. Sheal... It Sheal-ed right off. That doesn't work. Let's see if it was a... No. All right, now we're going to do on the face pull test here. I can tell this is the cheapest packaging I've seen and it's 50 masks for $36 so it's very affordable for a KF94. Oh, this thing is not... Yeah. I don't think it's necessarily going to fall off on your face, but there are better built KF94s out there. One of my favorites is... Was it Dr. Puri I think was the first one I ever tried, and you always remember your first...


My whole goal is to see if I can disappoint our editor here. I'm going to try the smell on this one. Yeah, you can... Just look at this wrinkle. The construction is just not great. Yeah, there are just better constructed KF94s. I like the colors, though. Yeah. I'm like a pink ninja. Ah, I've smelled this before. It's like a campfire if you threw a plastic bag in. That's what it smells like, a campfire that you threw a plastic bag in. Yeah. Not horrible. It's very nostalgic for me. Those old campfires. All right. Sheal 50 piece 3D disposable... 3D. I'm not even going down that road. KF94 has never disappointed me, Sheal don't you start now.

[inaudible 00:04:12] says 98.74. Actually, it's on the higher side. I've seen KF94s come in at 95, 96. This one's pretty good on that. It's got a great filter, the material is really good, it's just not constructed very well. I've seen construction way, way better. The smell's not ideal. Packaging is efficient, so we'll give you that, Sheal, and nice work on the five colors. I hope you've enjoyed this video. If you do, if it was helpful, if you end up buying these masks or not buying them because of this video, smash that like button. You know that's the currency of YouTube. If you don't know that, what have you been doing with your life? I really wonder. You better be in the future watching past videos, which I will see you on that next test.


The Seal mask passed our particulate filtration efficiency machine test with a score of 98.75%. KF94 masks are boat-style and made in Korea, which has very strict production guidelines. All KF94 masks have ear loops instead of head straps or head ties.

Mask breathability is determined by airflow resistance, which we measure in pascals. The target for adults should be around 150, and the target for children should be close to 100. The airflow resistance of this mask is 184.

This mask has a wood smoke odor common in many KF94s. While this brand offers a great filter and multiple colors in one package, the construction is shoddy. 

We found this mask on Amazon. Check out our video review for more details.

Amazon site states the mask was made in China, not Korea.
