This New Face Mask Has An Important Difference
A few months into this pandemic, there’s a growing sense that Americans have checked out on fighting it. Which isn’t great because it sure hasn’t checked out on fighting us. Naturally, we love the new Everyday Gaiter from Voormi, a product that takes the long view: face masks may be part of the new normal, so why not make them easier to wear?
By fusing face mask and gaiter designs, that’s exactly what this release aims to do. Made of lightweight, odor-fighting merino wool, the Everyday Gaiter ($35) features integrated ear loops and a drop-neck cut (short in back, long in front). That makes it convenient to simply wear around your neck when you’re at a safe distance from other humans, then quickly pull up over your ears and nose when you come into contact with them.
This product is so popular that it sells out fast, but you can sign up to be notified when it’s available again. We reached out to Voormi’s reps to inquire when that might be, and they say the next batch should be out in about a week.
