Why did this mask fail?
Video TranscriptHey, everyone. Welcome back to the place we're testing every single mask on Amazon. And today we got a doozy, the Lee Cooper since 1908, I think reusable mask, which I think is one of the first reusable masks. But the reason we're doing it is because it also says that it has Melt-blown and Spun bond in it, which cannot be reused. So, interesting, interesting. This is going to be an interesting one. All right, let's open this up and test it.
Oh, yeah. That's definitely a reusable mask, wow, okay. So, it's got three masks in there. I like the packaging, the packaging's real nice. Yeah, that is a cloth mask there for sure. Wow. Okay. Oh, it's pretty strong smell. On a clamper, boom. And let's let it rip. Right. This is super, super, super weird. So, you know, we got the Lee Cooper cotton face mask with HeiQ Vblock filter and minimum fogging. Face masks for outdoor protection. It's weird flex. Swiss tech, Uber cool, Aussie style. There's throwing words here. Face mask washable, wash up to 30 uses and water resistant layers, reusable masks instead of disposable, better for planet and look stylish too everyday armor. Great to feel the sport of designer mask while camping. I got a lot of questions. So when I look at the bag, it's actually making some claims on here.
They're saying BFE of 95%. And then they're also saying PFE of 90%. Now remember, BFE means nothing when it comes to the coronavirus, bacteria is like 10, 20, 30, a hundred times bigger than the coronavirus. So, that's a useless thing. And the PFE, weird that they would throw out 90%. It's just a weird flew. And then they have splash resistant, hydrostatic test. I don't know what that is, but they are quoting the ASTM test at 160 millimeters of mercury, which is the test that ASTM level three mask goes through. That's very interesting.
Breathability. Great. Love it. 45 pascals. What does that mean? What does that mean? This is not going to protect you at all. Right so let me take a look at this. All right. Very strong. Obviously it's reusable mask it's not going to break. Let me put this bad [inaudible 00:03:04] on here.
It's got these little tightening stripy things. It's actually a little bit lower than I... The way it's designed is it's designed... See this right here. I'll do the top shot so you can see. Look at that, fit is horrible. This is probably the worst fit fitting mask I've ever used. And it smells like pure gasoline. Horrible. It smells like pure gasoline. Now, I suppose, after you wash it and put fabric software in it, it'll get better. Boy, Lee, I'm about to tear you a new one here, this is not a good mask. Okay. So one of the things that it's saying is like inner layer, moisture controlled antibacterial finish, a lot of claims, two melt blown layers. That's what you put in a normal, that's the filter layer of a reusable mask. But the thing is, if you wash that mask, if you wash a reusable mask, it won't work anymore.
Two Spun bonded fluid protection. That's the thing that's going to block liquid from getting in. This is in reusable mask. Now, clearly they've got this sort of plastic outer finish. This is the least protective mask that you could ever wear. Well, I don't know, we haven't shown the toast yet, but we'll see. So we got a layer of, I don't know what that is, "Lululemon pants", I'm going to call that, it's a technical term. And then we've got a layer spun bond. That's it, just spun bond. It's a giant... This is like 130 GSM, hundred GSM layer of spun bond. No melt blown. You sit on a throne of lies. So they're lying about the melt blown that's in there. No melt blown. They said two layers of spun bond, just one. And then they've got a layer of cotton on the back.
So why lie about this stuff? It doesn't make any sense. This is a horrible mask. And I can tell you by the makeup that this is, I looked is not going to protect you at all, but let's see. 21.5%, 21.5%! This is a useless mask. You know what this mask will do? It will make you smell like everything smells like gasoline. That's the only thing this will do for you. This is horrible. I would not use this mask. Personal opinion. I don't like they're lying to you. Great packaging though guys and good brand, so you did something there.
All right. Thank you guys so much for watching this, hope this was helpful. If you ended up buying this mask because you hate me and you think my advice is awful. Well, technically you benefited from this video. So I'm just going to ask for you, even though, if you can get over your hatred for a second because I did help you, give me a like and a subscribe and then come back next time and do it every day, that'll show me. All right, thank you guys so much and I will catch you on the next test.
