Why did this mask fail?


Video Transcript

Hey there. Welcome back to the place we're testing every single mask on Amazon. Oh, wait. We bought this on Amazon, but we didn't buy this. We bought something on Amazon and this showed up, which happens. Does that happen to you? Happens to me all the time. You buy Nikes, you get Adidas. What the heck's going on? And, we bought so many masks. We don't know which one was wrong. But, we did find this mask on Office Depot, the Omar Inc. 3-Ply Disposable Mask.

Let's put it in the clamper and see how it does. If you were buying the Omar Inc., boy, is this video going to be exciting? My gosh, who has this much fun testing masks? Who does? This is a PFE machine, particulate filtration efficiency machine. We are testing this mask to see if it pasts the American, ASTM Standards. I figured, you probably didn't spend a quarter of a million on a lab like I did. So, I'm letting you borrow it today, if you bought the Omar 3-Ply Pleaded Disposable Face Mask, adult.

Let's look at the box. I like the box. It's almost a soft touch box, not for medical use, made in China. They're not making any claims on the box here. Let's open it up. This is interesting. This is a cheaply made mask. I can tell just by looking at it. How you ask, how? Because, I looked at a lot of masks, my friend. Why you are coming at me so hard? We just met, geez. Not ideal, let's try it out on the old face. I say old because I'm 40 now. This smell, I'm going to label an Office Depot cardboard box. That's what it smells like. It was just sitting in the box, bought it at Office Depot for sure, smells just like it. The nose wire's pretty skimpy. I don't love it. I don't think it's going to break on your face. So, that's pretty good, but does it protect you?

Let's check out the machine. What does the machine say? Machine does not lie. Nice, peaked the audio on that one, 96.439, breathability 45 pascals. Not making any claims, hitting 96%, that is a ASTM Level 1 mask. Personally, I look for ASTM Level 2 or Level 3. But you know what, I like the packaging. Omar, I like the name, Omar. I like Omar, it's good, pretty good mask for the price, 12 bucks. That's a pretty good mask. I'd probably buy that honestly, if I didn't own my own mask factory, kind of got my own supply.

So, thank you so much for watching. If you saw this within the first 24 hours of dropping, I want you to drop what you are doing and bang out a quick comment. It can be literally anything. "Lloyd, you have the best hair that I've ever seen." Wow, thank you so much, that's so nice. Anything you want to say, as long as it's positive and complementary of me. And, we are going to choose a comment at random, going to put details in the video there. You're going to get something pretty cool, maybe, we'll see. Otherwise, I will see you tomorrow at 10:00 AM. If you are in 2021 and watching this video, we are dropping new mask reviews every day at 10, and we'll see you there.


The Omar Inc. disposable mask passed our particulate filtration efficiency machine test with a score of 96.44%. This 3-ply blue surgical mask has ear loops instead of head straps or 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 45.

This mask has a cardboard smell and is cheaply made. It offers reasonably good filtration with tremendous breathability though.

We found this mask on Amazon. Its country of origin is China. Check out our video review for more details.
