The best sports masks that are comfortable and breathable enough for a workout
Having to stay active while braving a pandemic requires more than just tuning in to your online fitness classes or sticking to your training apps. Sometimes a little fresh air from a run or a socially distant class in the studio can do you some good — alongside a mask that's built for activity to safeguard your time outdoors. Below, some of the best, breathable sports masks that you can don, while not compromising on your performance.
Under Armour Sportsmask
Intensive workouts have got nothing on the new Under Armour Sportsmask, designed to be a more breathable yet safe alternative to the conventional surgical face masks. Athletes who have been on the lookout for masks that don't skimp on performance potential, while keeping them safe as they train during the pandemic can turn to this reusable, triple-layered, water-resistant face mask that's designed for maximum breathability. The mask also has a moldable nose-bridge that ensures greater security while mitigating airflow to the user's eyes and preventing their glasses from fogging up. The best part? It's completely eco-friendly, as washing and drying this mask for multiple use makes it a convenient staple for those looking to stay active and safe.
Priced at $35, the UA SPORTSMASK's next drop will take place 14 August, at Orchard Central, Bugis Junction, Paragon, VivoCity, and Funan stores. For more updates on the next availability, visit Under Armour's Facebook page.
ASICS Runners Face Cover
Strenuous activities like running and HIIT are supposed to leave you panting for more air, so what do you do when your mask doesn't feel like it can cater to your needs? Thankfully, Asics is jumping on the bandwagon, alongside Under Armour, to produce their new ASICS Runners Face Cover. With air vents that improve airflow and prevent droplets from escaping the mask, its unique structure also gives you more room to breathe in while you run, without pressing against your mouth like most normal masks do. It's comfortable and washable as well, giving you the perfect fit that wicks away moisture quickly.

Carbon 38 The Mask Kit
Carbon38 The Mask Kit comes with two masks, as well as a laundry bag for washing. Their masks are made with a polyester and cotton blend, which means they dry quickly and help you stay cool while you work out. Adjustable earloops make for a snug, comfortable fit and the masks come in two different sizes (small and large).
