The Breathe99's ergonomic facepiece is made of soft, FDA-compliant materials that conform to your face shape for a protective fit that reduces the fogging of glasses. The patent-pending design folds in half for easy storage, can be washed by hand or dishwasher.
Filters + Caps
Our high-efficiency changeable filters protect you from airborne contaminants, such as particles of air pollution, smog, wildfires and infectious diseases, under normal everyday breathing conditions. For detailed information on filter efficiency, please check out our Filter Technology Review.
Every Breathe99 Mask Kit comes with 5 sets of original filters and 2 filter caps
An interchangeable, adjustable, and breathable textile component which secures the facepiece to the wearer. The strap design eliminates ear rashes caused by standard masks. Machine-washable.

What was the Breathe99 Mask designed for?
The Breathe99 Mask is the result of 4+ years of human-centered product development, originally geared towards protection from air pollution, smog and wildfires. The design was adapted during the Covid-19 pandemic, with the removal of the exhalation valve to cater for the growing respiratory protection needs of global citizens.
Who designed the Breathe99 Mask?
Behind the Breathe99 Mask, there is a team of designers, engineers and medical-device specialists with the goal to create a low-waste, durable alternative to N95 and other disposable masks. The result is high level protection in a sustainable, lightweight design that is ideal for extended lifestyle use.
Is the Breathe99 Mask sustainable?
The Mask is made from durable materials that can be washed and reused hundreds of times. Using the filters is more affordable over time than disposable masks, and reduces waste by up to 80%.
Where is the Breathe99 Mask produced?
The Breathe99 Mask is designed and produced in the USA. We work with ISO-certified manufacturers and suppliers based in the Midwest to ensure the quality of all of our products.
Filtration down to 0.1 micron
The Breathe99 Masks are rated for filtration down to 0.1 micron particles (that’s 100 nanometers). That’s much smaller than your average sneeze or piece of dust. We have you covered for all of the tiny particles known as PM10 and PM2.5.
What's Inside our filters
Breathe99 Masks have a large surface area to maximize airflow. They are 40% more breathable than the strict requirements set by NIOSH for non-powered respirators.
The electrostatically-charged non-woven polypropylene layer in all Breathe99 Masks attracts and traps particles as they flow through.
The super-fine meltblown polypropylene layer in the Original Breathe99 Masks traps smaller particles that make it through woven fabrics.
Breathe99 Masks were put through precise filtration efficiency and airflow resistance testing at the University of Minnesota Department of Mechanical Engineering. Using a size range of particles from 30 to 300 nm, we are able to understand filter performance down to the smallest detail.Download the Whitepaper
Designed to the highest standard
Breathe99 Mask is designed for everyday use at home and in the workplace. It was designed according to requirements set out by NIOSH and the FDA in 42 CFR 84, though it is not currently approved nor is it a medical device. Our filter material has been tested as >99% efficient for bacterial and viral filtration (ASTM F2101). However this test is not as strict as the requirements set by NIOSH for particle filtration.
A well-sealed mask is a critical part of protection. The patent-pending facepiece flexes to your face so that all air coming in and out of your mouth and nose goes through our high-efficiency filters.
Breathe99 Masks work in both directions, which means that both you and those around you are protected. There are no valves in the Breathe99 Mask, only highly efficient, breathable filters.
Find your fit.
Use the following sizing guide to ensure the Breathe99 Mask is right for you.
Measure nose to chin
Use a piece of string or a ruler to measure the distance between the tip of your nose and the point of your chin. Make sure not to measure under the chin as the Breathe99 Mask is not designed to wrap below the chin.
Ensure that your nose to chin measurement is within the range shown on the table above. The bottom strap of the Breathe99 Overlay, which fastens around the back of the neck, has a maximum circumference of 21 inches (53 cm).
Face Shape & Fit
The Breathe99 Mask has a flexible facepiece that conforms to your face to form a seal. It is normal to take a few days of use for the facepiece to break in and achieve the best position for sealing.
Adjustment and Seal
The Breathe99 Mask is designed to sit low on the bridge of your nose. If you have a prominent or low nose bridge, you can flip the inner seal up achieve a tighter fit.
Frequently Asked Questions
Answers to some common questions about Breathe99 Mask.
Is the Breathe99 Mask FDA or NIOSH-certified?
Breathe99 Mask is designed to comply with NIOSH N95 standards per 42 CFR Part 84, but it is not yet NIOSH or FDA-approved.
Will the Breathe99 mask fog my glasses?
Breathe99 Mask is designed with a flexible seal that eliminates or significantly reduces fogged glasses. If you are experiencing any fogging, you can try flipping the nose seal portion to achieve a tighter seal on the nose.
Does the Breathe99 mask come in multiple sizes?
No, currently we have one adult size.
Can I use multiple discount codes?
Only one discount code or offer can be applied per order. Please select the offer that works best for you.
What does the Breathe99 Mask filter?
Breathe99 Filters remove 99.6 - 98.3% of airborne particles down to .1 micron at normal breathing rates. This includes common contaminants such as dust, biological aerosols, and smoke.

How often do I need to change my Breathe99 filters?
Please see the Use & Care tab for when to change your filters, based on what you use them for.
What materials is the Breathe99 Mask made of?
FDA-compliant TPU and Polypropylene
Body: 84% Nylon 16% Spandex, Binding: 92% Nylon 8% Spandex, Stabilizer and Strap: UBL 89% Nylon, 11% Spandex
Meltblown and Electrostatically-charged polypropylene
How breathable is the Breathe99 Mask?
Breathe99 Mask is very breathable for a respirator or face mask. However, it will not be as comfortable as wearing no mask at all. Breathe99 Mask exceeds the recommended breathing resistance required by NIOSH for Filtering Facepiece Respirators. Light breathing (walking, desk work, driving) through Breathe99 Mask will feel easier than heavy breathing (long flights of stairs, hard labor).
Always taking care.
Stay safe and stress free with easy filter changes and cleaning.
For a person who only has occasional contact with the public, and can stay physically distanced, we recommend:
- Change filters at least every 2 weeks.
You should change your filters more often if:
- You interact daily with the general public, such as for a job
- You or someone you care for is immunocompromised
- Your filters get wet while in use
- Your think your filters may be contaminated
These are guidelines only, as you know your personal situation and risk level best. Please note that no mask can eliminate the breathing in of all particles or the possibility of getting sick. We have previously stated that our filters can be used for unlimited wear time, but felt that did not adequately account for the pandemic-time risk of contamination or degradation due to humidity.
The facepiece, filter caps, and fabric overlay may be washed by hand using a mild soap or detergent. Alternatively, you can place them all in a laundry delicates bag and machine-wash them on the delicates cycle in cold water.
When not in use, the Breathe99 Mask can be folded in half with the overlay straps used to secure it closed. Alternatively, the mask can be left on a clean surface or hung somewhere that is out of the way. Do not store in a sealed container because this prevents moisture evaporation.
