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 Zerobay KF94. If you are real KF94. I'm excited. We're finding fake KF94s here. I didn't think that would happen. It's been such a protected format, but Korea, Chinese are coming at you. Look out.

All right. Let's open this up. I think this is a legit one though, just by taking a quick glance at it. It's because the packaging is so beautiful. Take notes, Chinese knock-off artists. You got to knock-off the packaging too, if you want it to be convincing.

All right, let's get this in the clamper and see what's what. Oh, wow. That is fresh. Fresh. I did not expect that design. I've seen this once before. A kid's mask called the KF94, but not the traditional boat or fish style that you end up seeing for KF94s. I think it's just made to fit a smaller face, but honestly, I don't love the look. I don't love the style.

All right. This is a PFE machine, Particle Filtration Efficiency machine. We are doing the N95 test here. Why? That's all I know people. In fact, if you can send me the KF94 standard, would love to read it. Two things that I know is one that 94 stands for 94% filtration, and two, it's got to be made in Korea, which this one does appear to be. A lot of the knock-offs pretend to be made in Korea, but when you open them up, they're actually made in China, and they have this standard table as well, I've noticed. Korea, Korea. Let's open it up.

Zerobay. Zerobay.

Let's do this. Oh, oh, I don't love the style of mask. Okay. This is for kids I think. Says this for juniors, so small. It is pretty tight on me.

This smells like someone washed some clothes with crayons. That's what it smells like. Not a horrible smell, but not a great smell either. Definitely not what you want your socks to smell like. I like that it says fresh on it.

Let's take a look at the listing. Individually wrapped. Quality use. Not much going on the listing. I'm just going to jump over to this, because this is great. 97.15, 120 Pascal. Super breathable. Beating the 94. This is a pretty good mask. Zerobay, you did a good job. I think that I would have to check it to see how it fits on my kids. I don't love this style, but all in all, that's pretty good.

Let's do one last check here just to get the final number. 97.178. 97.178, under 120 pascals. That's a pretty good mask. KF94, the real ones do not disappoint. I'd probably put my kids into this mask.

All right. Thank you guys so much for watching. I appreciate your time and attention. Join me on the next episode which is tomorrow at 10:00 AM. I'll see you there.

Description

The Zerobay mask passed our particulate filtration efficiency machine test with a score of 97.17%. 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 121.

This mask has an odor reminiscent of melted crayons. This mask is very small and tight. It might be more suitable for children.

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