After releasing in Asia, UNIQLO is now preparing the stateside drop of its sought after AIRism Masks. Helping combat the Coronavirus Pandemic, UNIQLO developed the mask with its AIRism technology to optimize protection and comfort for daily use.
The AIRism Mask features a triple-layer structure that retains a level of protection filtering even after washing. Available in three-packs and three sizes, Small (W:7” x H:4.5”), Medium (W:8.5 ”x H:5.5”) and Large (W:9” x H:5.5”), the coverings wicks away moisture, releases heat, and absorbs sweat while maintaining a smooth feel all day. The AIRism fabric also features anti-microbial and self-deodorizing properties. Additionally, the triple-layer structure has a UPF 40 rating, blocking 90 percent of ultraviolet rays.
Minimizing consumers’ environmental impact, the masks are machine washable with regular household detergent. Maintaining effectiveness up to 20 washes at 40 degrees celsius.
Part of the Japanese company’s LifeWear line, customer feedback will be used to improve the quality and functionality of the mask.
