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, while the filter inserts use a fraction of the polypropylene meltblown media used in traditional disposable masks. This combination makes the Breathe99 system reduce non-biodegradable waste therefore being more sustainable.

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.

Find your fit.

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.

Breathe99 sizing table

Verify Fit

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

Compact 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.

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.

Filter Changes

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.

My third color!

Wear this every day to visit my dad in the VA nursing home! And here I am on a flight with tons of unmasked youths…I’m a NOVID!

Thank you for your review! Glad to hear the Breathe99 has been keeping you safe!

Susan Doyle
Yay! They’re back!

I was SO thrilled to find out that the Breathe99 masks were available again and that the replacement covers in different colors were also being sold. (I have the black, and always wanted a blue). This is the mask I feel most confident in when I am in a higher-risk environment like a grocery store or theatre, because of its design and good fit. You really can adjust it so it doesn’t steam up your glasses. And I think it has the bonus of looking great. I’m so glad they kept the blue overlay color, and I like the woven texture. All in all, I’m really happy with my purchase. I think it’s well worth the investment. Replacement parts were easy to order and arrived very quickly. Finally, I do like the fact that this product is made in the USA, and designed to be more sustainable over time. Thanks!

Thank you for your kind words! We're so glad you're enjoying the Breathe99 masks - they're perfect for high-risk environments like grocery stores and theaters. The blue overlay color is really popular, and we love the woven texture of the mask. The mask is made in the USA and is designed to be more sustainable over time. We're glad to hear that the replacement parts were easy to order and arrived quickly. Thanks for your positive review!

I love it

I purchased this mask and love it so much i got one for a friend of mine. I think it is much better than the other masks i have used.

Hi April! We are so happy that you are loving your Breathe99 mask and we truly appreciate your support!


Best filter for the best mask.


Helps keep mask comfortable


Best filter hands down.

100% worth it!

I originally got the Breathe99 mask when it was on Kickstarter which launched just after Lockdowns had started for Covid and got one for my whole family. We have been using these masks daily since receiving them, going shopping, to restaurants, to movies concerts, and to other places with lots of people. We have even used them while walking outside at busy parks or theme parks. With this consistent use, our household has managed to avoid catching Covid and other illnesses even doing all the things listed. This mask is extremely comfortable and easy to breathe through and care for.
If you're going to be someone who will wear it for hours on end I also recommend getting the mask inserts, they will help regulate any moisture buildup. they come in two packs so one can be hand washed when you're done with the mask and left to dry while the other one is in use.
I have also personally recommended and bought extra ones for my extended family and friends throughout the several years I have had one now. and I can not recommend this mask highly enough.
If you are on the fence about getting one you will not regret it.

Hi Trevor! Thanks so much for your review on the Breathe99 mask! We are so thrilled that you and your family have loved using the Breathe99 mask during the course of the pandemic and of course, we appreciate your support!

Breathe 99

The mask fits great and is comfortable. Breathing is easy. I like the overlay. I would like to get one off the original mesh overlays. Is there still stock available of it? I inquired with the original company and was referred to Armbrust.

Hi James! We are so happy to hear that you are loving your Breathe99 mask! While we do not have the original Breathe99 overlay, we do offer replacement overlays on our website under 'Breathe99 Replacement Parts'!

Filter Difference Question

What is the difference between the Regular & Lite filters? When should I use one cs the other?

Hi Kara! Thanks for the question!

The difference between the two filters are as follows:

Lite: Maximum breathability (>90% filtration @ 0.1 micron) for solid everyday protection and active use cases. Change at least once per week.

Standard: Maximum protection (99.6%-98.3% @ 0.1 micron) for high-risk environments, smoke, and more. Change at least once every 2 weeks.

Please do reach out to support at should you have any additional questions!
