Why did this mask fail?
video transcriptHey everyone, welcome back. Today we are testing... That's right every single mask on Amazon using the term "Day Here Relative". We are in our new studio. So I hope you like it. Today we are testing the J-Bone mask or J-Bonest, but I'm just going to call it J-Bone because, well I used to dance under that name, so I just have an affinity to it.
All right, let's mix things up here and let's jump right into looking at the test on this guy. So I'm going to pop this in. How does that look? Oh Nice. And we will let her rip. All right, so J-bone, J-Bonest mask comes in this very weird rectangular package. I've never seen packaging like this. It's a little interesting or on the Amazon screen, it doesn't show this packaging. This may be a different option that is no longer available.
I am... I'm not exactly sure, but let's look at the packaging. Let's open this guy up here. So very interesting. Looking here, specifications, actually made by Jinjiang Dexin Paper Company. Masks aren't made of paper just so you know, so it's kind of weird. This is a such unique packaging. Okay, interesting. So it's got different colors in here and they... I wonder which one is the extra one, like the extra, the 51st one that you get. I like that. And these are not sealed, so it's important to note. But it is a pretty good seal. It looks like you get a charcoal, a black, pink, it's very light pink. All right. So, I can tell that your loops are really small, which could be very bad. Okay. I'm not giving it much pressure. And I feel like if I just, yeah, if I pull on this at all... So this is going to be one of those, that like, maybe one comes off during wear.
But like I think if you put this thing on, for the most part it's not going to fall up, fall apart. Doing the bre... Oh, that's kind of an interesting look there. Looking at the monitor, that's... It's charcoal, but it's like almost looks like a, like a silky fabric kind of a situation. Okay. So the smell very typical of what we're going to see. This is like, let's see... This smells like my pencil drawer is on fire. It's like a bunch of burning pencils, slightly wood, slightly graphite smell. Maybe I'm being psychosomatic here because it, the color is graphite so that could be, but it's definitely like a medium smell.
I would put it right in the middle. Not terrible, the nose wear is very, very small, but I think they're just, I think they're making like some decisions to try to keep this thing very, very cheap. Because the ear loops are not very big, the weld is not great, looks like the metal is not crazy, but also J-Bone's got the packaging down though, am I right? I mean, it's not soft touch, so let's not get too excited. Sorry. I just saw this. This is funny.
Do not use this product at bedtime. Don't you do it. Don't use it at bedtime. That's funny. But does it protect you? All right. Let's find out. 96.295, now the minimum standard in the United States is 95%. And this is meeting that. Personally like, I like to see an ASTM two or three mask. This is more of an ASTM level one mask, which is 95%. ASTM level two or level three is going to be 98%, which is a little bit better. But I mean, shoot, that's not terrible. Right. Thank you guys for watching. If this one was a little rough, forgive me. It's the first time in our new studio here. And I'm trying to get back into swing of things.
We had to kind of take the process off while we moved buildings. So, we're back and if you're glad that we're back, if you're excited, if you never knew that we left, if you just want me to shut up, give me a like and a subscribe and I would appreciate it. I'll go now. Just hit the like and I'm gone, that's all it takes, that's all it takes to shut me up. All right. Thanks very much. See you next time.
