Under Armour Sportsmask: A reusable breathable solution for intensive workouts
Slipping on a mask before heading outdoors is probably second nature to us at this point. With more places reopening now that the circuit breaker period is well behind us, most of us are now diving back into the gyms. That also means amping up on precautions and safety measures — now made infinitely more comfortable with Under Armour's launch of a specially formulated Sportsmask. Especially since fabric face masks can often be the most uncomfortable accessory of working out.
Millions of athletes around the world have been struggling for months to find an alternative that lets them maintain their performance while training, and UA has a solution for them. A reusable, triple-layered, water-resistant face mask that's designed for maximum breathability, the UA Sportsmask does not skimp on performance potential.
Featuring a moldable nose-bridge at the top to help secure the mask and mitigate airflow to the eyes, it helps to prevent glasses from fogging. It can also be washed and dried, unlike disposable face masks, making it an eco-friendly option that's worth the investment.
The UA Sportsmask comprises of three layers — each carefully engineered to ensure that your safety and comfort isn't compromised while you work out. The first layer includes air pockets to provide better air flow, designed to stay off the nose and mouth. The second is made out of open-cell foam that restricts moisture and respiratory droplets from passing through, but allows air in. The third and final layer is made out of a stretchy antimicrobial material that feels cool against the skin.
We might have been able to wait out the dine-in and non-essential service restrictions, but one thing we know is that masking up would still be a reality — at least a cure for COVID-19 has been invented. Procuring a multi-functional mask that's built to last might be the wisest thing to do right now.
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.
