Under Armour launched a face mask for exercising that sold out in less than an hour after launch. The “Sportsmask” is made with performance fabrics and according to the website, it has enhanced airflow, water-resistance, cool to touch feel, built-in UPF 50+ sun protection, and anti-microbial treatment to keep the mask fresh. It also has a structured design so the mask doesn’t sit directly on your face.
The design of the mask allowed for a snug fit almost everywhere around its border while leaving room to breathe around the nose and mouth. Another plus of this structured design was that even when the mask was soaked in sweat the fabric did not cling to my face, allowing me to breathe comfortably. The soft and stretchy ear loops are comfortable to wear long term and also help the mask stay securely in place. However, the bendable nose piece did not completely mold to my nose, leaving a slight gap, which made my glasses fog up while wearing it.
I wanted to love the Iso-Chill fabric, however, while the mask felt cool against my skin after putting it on, after a few minutes, the cooling effect feeling was gone. The last thing: The “three-layer system” in theory is a good idea, but that has some flaws, too. Because the layers are thicker than most, it is almost like wearing a blanket over your face, making it feel warmer. While I didn't notice that I sweat more in this mask than others, I didn't like the feel of extra heat over my face. You can read more about my thoughts on the popular Under Armour mask here.
