“My three department managers all came down with Covid-19 in Jan. 2020, two of them got very sick. I believe the reason I didn’t contract Covid is because I wore the Fiddler’s Elbow Mask the entire time we worked together.” – James Melville, President, Melo Company, Advanced Manufacturing, Newburg, NY
Masks are only as good as the material they are made from. Our masks meet the N95 filtration performance. Highly efficient > 99% filtration efficiency for 0.2-0.3 µm airborne particles as per national standard. Synthetic nanofiber media is an entirely submicron polymer fiber.

Fit: A tight seal around your face is extremely important. A 1% opening can result in a significant drop in the mask efficiency against respiratory virus transmission. We’ve developed a 3-dimensional mask which contours and seals around the face. A substantial nose bridge crimps tight to the nose and cheeks and stays in place. Adjustable ear loops for a custom fit. For fit instructions, see best fit.

Comfort: Our lightweight, flexible mask material makes it comfortable to wear all day. Our mask utilizes semi-rigid horizontal stays in the front to create more surface area for easier breathing and won’t collapse around your face when inhaling. You won’t experience the “I can’t breathe” sensation.
Frustrated with your current mask fogging your eyeglasses? We’ve solved this problem with a substantial sewn-in nose bridge which prevents your exhaled breath from escaping above the nose.
Wash ability: Unlike the N95 mask, our mask is washable without losing its great filtration properties. Our mask material is made from tightly packed nylon nano fibers which mechanically stop small sub-micron particles. vs. a purely electrostatically charged N95 media which lose their charge and subsequent filtration efficiency when washed in soap and water.
