On Whether the Buff Is a "Face Mask"

Recommended Posts

Good, practical piece here from On the Water:


That brings us back to fishing face masks and neck gaiters designed for sun protection. Most are made from a single layer of lightweight, stretchy polyester and designed for comfort and breathability. Some have small holes or slits around the nose and mouth for better ventilation. I tested several different neck gaiters and face masks from several different manufacturers by holding them up to bright light, and all of them allowed significant light to pass through.

I think there's a balance between 100% effective and likely to be actually used. If people are using these already, they should be encouraged to keep doing so. Masks matter!
