    Good deal, but some of the reviews are less than stellar.

    ??? shows an overall rating of 4.5/5 stars so not sure how many less than stellar reviews versus ones that are quite satisfied based on that star rating.

    Was referring to things like this:

    My daughter got poked in the face by a metal wire putting one of these on. NO QUALITY CONTROL VERY VERY CHEAPLY MADE

    If you’re OK with a cheap product and won’t be using these for kids, it’s a great deal. Personally, I will hold off.

    I’m not going to let a very limited # of mediocre reviews detract me, obviously for young kids, they should be kid friendly but for adults, for $5, worth to keep a box in my car. Just offering some balance. BTW, I did get a box of 50 from this seller when they were about $7.50 and have been satisfied thus far.



  • I ordered a box and they arrived Tuesday. At first they looked identical to the much higher-priced ones I’ve been buying at Wegmans at 10 for $7.99 (no idea who makes those; just a generic blue and white box that says "Earloop Masks, Premium Non-Medical Use, 3-Ply, High Quality, Melt-blown Fabric, made in China). But when I compared them further I noticed two differences: the inner white layer of the eBay mask is smooth while the inner layer of the Wegmans mask has more of a quilted look. That made me think the Wegmans mask might be better quality. But while wearing them, the Wegmans mask doesn’t move when I breathe in and out even with a close fit while the eBay mask does, and I’ve heard that’s a feature you should look for in a mask to show that it’s fitting snugly enough with few air gaps. All 50 look good, nose piece works well, ear loops seem fine and are even long enough that if needed you could tie a knot in each loop for a closer fit. At 50 for $5.50 these will be great for one-time use in fairly low-risk settings. I’ve read that some people wear two for added protection; haven’t tried that but guess it’d be worth the added peace of mind in a higher-risk situation.
    These certainly are inexpensive. Thanks OP.

    Thanks for your review. I broke down and bought 2 sets for family. Should’ve done it a few days ago when they had eBay Bucks, lol.

    When you try to burn the middle layer, it should melt, not burn.



  • ***These are currently down to $4.99 a box.

    I tested the above suggestion to see if the middle layer would melt, not burn. Held a flame to it and sure enough, it melted. I also tried blowing out a candle while wearing the mask. Flame didn’t even move.
    Just to see if it would be too hard to breathe while wearing two masks, I tried doubling up last night for grocery shopping. It was slightly more restrictive to breathe through but honestly not bad at all, and this is coming from someone who already has significant scar tissue in my lungs.
    I will say that one of the ear loops came off while taking one of the masks out of the box. Not a deal-breaker for me, certainly not at this price.
    I’m ordering more, for myself and for relatives that have been taking a risk by re-using similar masks to try to make them last longer.



  • Question: I just looked at 7 pages of product reviews and realized the same reviews are on almost every page. (?)
