“The feedback we have received from many users is that this is the most comfortable N95 mask they have worn; many said they forgot they even wore a mask, ”said James Wyner, CEO of Shawmut. “But beyond comfort, our mask’s ability to protect users is what matters most to us and we have consistently high quantitative fit test scores (200+) across a wide range of face sizes. If your mask doesn’t seal well, it won’t protect well. “
