Free shipping on orders over $60

Gerson began as a small manufacturing outfit more than 60 years ago in Boston, MA.  Today, Gerson distinguishes itself as a vertically integrated, prime manufacturer of a full range of air-purifying respirators, from filtering facepieces to half-mask to full face respirators, all products of outstanding design and value. Filtering facepiece respirators for example, such as various styles of N95 respirators, have been produced in Middleboro, MA since 1985 on unique, high-speed equipment of our own design and construction, incorporating our own melt-blown filter material to provide high-performing filtration with exceedingly comfortable breathing characteristics.

If you watch our video review these masks do have a rubber smell at first due to the headbands. The smell dissipates fairly quickly, but want you to be aware.

Generally pretty easy to get them to fit, snugly and securely, comfortable enough for me to wear all day. Haven’t gotten sick yet, so I guess they work! However, occasionally a strap will break after a few minutes of wear, maybe once every 20 masks or so.


Seals well, flexible, easy to breathe in, definitely one of my favorite masks. The plastic packaging it comes in isn't fully sealed, which feels like a waste of plastic packaging however.

Great breathability!

This mask is the most comfortable I have worn. Masks that have straps behind the ears always give me headaches. This style of mask also allows for amazing breathability. They are a bit tricky to get on, but I adapted. I wish they would come in different colors, But please, not orange or yellow. That would add to the duck bill look.😝

I highly recommend this mask.

Thank you for your review!

Duckbill puns always make us chuckle, too!

Extra breathing room short straps.

The duckbill does not fit as close to the nose and is more comfortable but the straps are a little short for anyone with a large head. It fits securely and seems to require less adjusting as it does not slide down the nose as much.

Thank you for your in-depth review!

We really value your feedback, and will continue to make quality masks available for all.

The only N95 that seals for me!

This mask is a Godsend! Because the nose wire is not bent in the middle, and it is easily molded, I finally found an N95 that seals on my face! I have deep set eyes and and a small long face. Nothing else seals completely on my face! This is perfect! I also love that it leaves plenty of room to breathe! It doesn’t touch my lips. As a person with asthma and bronchiectasis who lives in these, this is the answer to prayer!

My absolute favorite mask

Thank you, Lloyd, for the video, which sold me on the Gerson a year ago. Omicron hit and a family member decided "we're all gonna get it," so I had to up my mask game. I use two other N95/N99, but this is my favorite. I am comfortable for hours in the Gerson. Can chase a toddler, hike up a steep hill. Super super breathable. Nose area 10/10 comfy and secure. Sometimes the elastic is not reliable but it's a minor issue. THANKS Lloyd and Gerson.

Finally, a comfortable mask!

I’ve spent the pandemic periodically looking for a respirator mask that fits my face well, gets a good seal, and is actually comfortable. So many masks were too big, the wrong shape, leaked air at the edges, caused annoying glasses fogging, or dug into my face despite all the little fixes I tried. It was miserable wearing any of them for more than a couple minutes. So I didn’t go anywhere fun for 2+ years! But THIS mask? I plan to wear one on a cross-country flight next month. Enough said!

Excellent mask

The mask works great and so easy to put on and take off - It offers a great seal around nose, mouth and chin to protect from covid, flu, germs, etc- When I’m wearing the mask it is so lightweight and there’s plenty of room to breathe- Very happy with the Armbrust mask.

Hi Sue! We are so happy that you are loving the fit and protective qualities of your Gerson N95 masks and appreciate your review!

My favorite mask!

Excellent mask. Best n95 I have come across. Comfortable, light weight, it works, and feels really good on the face.

Hello! We really appreciate your review and are happy to hear that you are loving the fit of your Gerson N95 masks!

Great fitting mask! Delivery packaging could use some work...

After numerous costly tries with other masks, I was thrilled to find the Gerson 3230 N95 Respirator (Duckbill). It's comfy and fits my face well. This last order of two (flat) packs of five masks, however, I was frustrated to receive a well-taped box. This was the first time they had come this way, instead of a flat outer envelope. I want to challenge you folks along with all other companies delivering products purchased online to examine their use of materials in packaging (and in product manufacturing). Can you use less material? Can they be made from more environmentally sustainable materials? Can you re-use, repurpose or recycle what doesn't go directly into your products? Can you help your customers safely recycle their masks by partnering with other companies to develop technologies and infrastructure to divert these products from landfills (and our waterways and oceans...)?

Thanks so much for your work to protect our health. I hope you can make an even bigger impact by working to protect our planet and the long-term health of our communities!

Hi Mary! Thanks so much for your feedback! I have passed this suggestion along for our team to review!

We truly appreciate your support and help with bringing strategic manufacturing back to the USA!
