If you’re wondering whether you should wear a face mask while exercising outside, the answer is yes. But, a lot of them are made out of pure cotton, and it’s easy to overheat in them, and so exercise like running might be more annoying, and more difficult, than it already is. Thankfully, there are plenty of brands making face masks perfect for outdoor activity. To help you pick the perfect one, we’ve rounded up some of our favorites.
Uniqlo Airism Mask
Made with the brand’s popular, lightweight AIRism material, this mask is made with two layers of AIRism fabric, plus a filter in between. It has a UPF 40 rating, and is antimicrobial, self-deodorizing, heat-releasing, sweat-absorbing, and of course, machine washable.
Buck Mason Knit Bandana Mask
Buck Mason is notably not an exercise brand; however, they make a face mask perfect for exercising in. If you’re running around and there’s not a person in sight, you should still have something to put on in case someone does appear. This Buck Mason bandana mask fits nicely around your neck so you can pull it up at a moment's notice.
Ultra Sport Face Mask
This mask is constructed with a super breathable honeycomb outer, and is made with anti-microbial materials. It has an adjustable nose wire as well as ear loops so it will stay on your face while you’re moving around, too.
Under Armour Sportsmask
You’re going to have to wait until August for this one, but order it now. It’s worth it. It has a structured design, antimicrobial treatment, extreme breathability, and side panels to offer up a more comfortable fit.
