New Balance unveils fitness-friendly triple-layer face mask
New Balance has produced more than one million face masks for healthcare workers since it re-tasked its factories back in March.
Today, it has just produced its first face mask prototype for general wear: the NB Face Mask V3. It will go on sale to the general public soon.
Developed with help from local medical institutions, the NB Face Mask V3 has three filter layers, and is machine washable. You also get a moldable nose piece and stretchable ear loops so it remains compfy.
The three layers include a combination of polyester, suede and polyurethane filtration foam. While they are non-sterile, they will help filter our air pollutions and toxins to a much better degree then regular old cloth masks.
The NB Face Mask V3 is available in packs of three on New Balance website. The company has said it is working on a high-performance mask that will be on sale in July.
