The Everyday Mask v1.1 - Sky Blue (Single Mask)


In Stock - Ships In 1-2 Business Days


Product Description

In March 2020, the CDC began recommending that “everyone should wear a cloth face cover when they have to go out in public.” So far seven states have made wearing face coverings mandatory when outside, and today many stores and businesses require customers to be wearing a mask to enter. Unfortunately most masks on the market are uncomfortable or ineffective.

So we spent four weeks developing a face mask that we'd actually want to wear. Something beautiful, comfortable, and most of all, functional.

After countless iterations, we settled on a shape with a larger section under the chin than most masks for a more secure fit that doesn’t slide up and down the nose when you talk or move around. A moldable metal piece at the bridge of the nose allows for a more secure air-seal at the nose and under the eyes, and two elastic straps wrap around the back of the head and neck for a secure attachment. Side pleats enable a close fit at the cheeks without uncomfortable tightness around the nose and jaw. And since fit is so important, we decided to offer the mask in two sizes: large and small, to fit a broad range of face shapes (and both men and women).

We chose this smooth 100% cotton shirting fabric with an antimicrobial finish in a beautifully varied sky blue melange for both its breathability and subtle yet unique look. It makes up the outer and inner layers of the mask and feels incredible against your skin. Critically, nested between two layers of this fabric we've put a hand-washable filter. The filter is removable and consists of 3-layers of non-woven polypropylene, with a polypropylene meltblown core to provide significantly more protection versus fabric-only masks.

Note: This mask has not been evaluated by the CDC or FDA and is not a substitute for N95, surgical, or procedural masks.

Due to the special nature of this product all sales are final and we will not be accepting returns.

  • It was good, but got better later

    September 2021  ·  Seph in New York, NY

  • Not very sturdy.

    February 2021  ·  Albert in New Orleans, LA

  • My husband’s absolute favorite

    October 2020  ·  Jodi in Portland, OR

  • Looks good. The straps are a little more difficult to remove on the fly than around the ear straps.

    September 2020  ·  JEFFERY in GILBERT, AZ

  • I loved the form and the fit, however, after three days and attempting to hand-wash it, the elastic separated and came apart. :(

    July 2020  ·  joseph in Morristown, NJ

  • Good quality. Comfortable mask for wearing multiple hours.

    July 2020  ·  Tuan in Philadelphia, PA

  • Smaller size fits like glove, especially for my girlfriend. Machine washable is a great plus, especially to remove make-up that accumulates.

    June 2020  ·  Patricia in Washington, DC

    June 2020  ·  Jeffrey in Irvington, NY

  • Excellent quality and look (for a mask). Would be great if there was a version with ear straps vs. head straps!

    June 2020  ·  Jon in Berkeley, CA

  • I have a fat head and it fit perfectly.

    June 2020  ·  Mark in HONOLULU, HI

  • Fits well, looks good. The straps fit behind the head, not behind the ears, so the fit is good and the straps do not pull my ears forward.

    June 2020  ·  Paul in ANN ARBOR, MI

  • My mask for business settings.

    June 2020  ·  Robert in Charlotte, NC

  • Very satisfied. The mask provide a comfortable fit, with the bands attaching to the back of the head instead of resting on my ears.

    June 2020  ·  KEVIN in Lacey, WA

  • I suggest that the elastic straps are longer

    June 2020  ·  Charles in Saint Michaels, MD

  • Comfortably to speak, but no so much breathable.

    June 2020  ·  RYOTARO in Tokyo,

  • Love the new color. I have another set in Grey, and the fit continues to be functional, stylish and secure.

    June 2020  ·  Sujay in West Windsor Township, NJ

    June 2020  ·  Marco in Key Biscayne, FL

  • I already have ordered more for family members and have recommended them to co-workers.

    June 2020  ·  Patrick in ALEXANDRIA, VA

  • Excellent construction and quality for a fabric mask. Attention to detail and design is par none.

    June 2020  ·  Mitch in SEATTLE, WA

  • Since mask comfort and proper fit are paramount to wearing a mask to face the Coronavirus... this one fits the bill well. Besides design the aesthetics are nice as well.

    June 2020  ·  wayne in Leesburg, FL

  • The size Small is too small for this grown woman. Nice quality and color though.

    June 2020  ·  Jill in Leominster, MA

  • Well made, good look - elastic straps could be stronger.

    June 2020  ·  John in Belleville, ON

  • It is a little tight.

    June 2020  ·  David in PLANO, TX

  • Classic and classy.

    June 2020  ·  Chad in Rehoboth Beach, DE

  • There are several things I did not expect but found very thoughtful. The more ridged shape left room to talk and breathe comfortably. The filter sleeves were tailored well so that there were no folds in the fabric that touched my face. I found other masks to have the problem of touching my face and annoyingly tickling my mustache.

    June 2020  ·  Dustin in HOUSTON, TX

  • Fits like a champ and looks great.

    June 2020  ·  Justin in Birmingham, MI

  • Great quality of the fabrics

    June 2020  ·  Enrique in Doral, FL

  • This face mask is the best one I’ve tried so far. Very breathable and doesn’t get my glasses foggy

    June 2020  ·  Alexandros in Pleasant Hill, CA

  • Lightweight and comfortable product. Even has a washable mask insert. Highly recommend!

    June 2020  ·  Amie in Glassboro, NJ

  • First, the mask, once I figured out how to wear it, was comfortable. So that was a plus. But I had two issues. The first is there were no instructions I found for how to put it on. It took me a bit to figure out how to put the lower strap on. There were no pics or anything. And I had no other masks like that. Second, there's no filter refills. I had to reach out to customer service for assistance, which, your rep did provide me some links on what to look for and pointed me to where to go. But I felt for the kind of product and service I usually get from Proper Cloth, having to do my own research for a solution that may or may not actually work for the product I have is beneath what I usually receive from you.

    June 2020  ·  Elie in MANSFIELD, OH

  • Not a big fan of nose bridge metal inside as I think in time/wear it will break to repeated bending to form. Also fabric needs more body so it doesn't suck in to your face when you breathe. Not the best effort. I will modify it myself to improve.

    June 2020  ·  Douglas in North Salt Lake, UT

  • The large size and bendable nose bridge are exactly what I needed. And looks great to boot!

    June 2020  ·  Cory in New York, NY

  • Nice mask. Logo is a little large for size of mask.

    June 2020  ·  Wesley in CALGARY, Alberta

  • Uncomfortable straps’ position.

    June 2020  ·  Kamran in New York, NY

  • Excellent fit, feel protected by the filter.I ordered another one in a stunning print this time. My daughter ordered 3 for Father's Day.Just hope they make it here in time.

    June 2020  ·  elizabeth in SANTA MONICA, CA

  • Perfect mask! Great fit. The straps on top and neck are way better than around ears.

    June 2020  ·  Robert in MINNEAPOLIS, MN

  • Tip top. Super comfortable.

    June 2020  ·  steve in Lake Saint Louis, MO

  • It’s enough to have to wear a mask. I don’t need to use it to advertise.

    June 2020  ·  Les in Wantagh, NY

  • Sizing is great as are cleaning instructions.

    June 2020  ·  David in Edina, MN

  • Great quality and style at a really great price. I thought I’d cheat the recommendations and order a small size (I’m male, 5’9”, 160lbs.), but I shouldn’t have done that. PC was right, it’s too small for me! I thought the large looked very big on the model’s face but use my mistake to make the right decision!

    June 2020  ·  Jonathan in Portsmouth, NH

  • Nice to have something that feels like quality in this moment of stress.

    June 2020  ·  Rob in PASADENA, CA

  • Comfortable, looks great, and feels very durable.

    June 2020  ·  Andrew in AUSTIN, TX

  • Great product

    June 2020  ·  Jason in CORAL GABLES, FL

  • Comfortable and breathable compared to others I've tried.

    June 2020  ·  Alec in Bethesda, MD

  • Love it. Stylish but safe. Wish there were more colors

    June 2020  ·  George W. in N Hollywood, CA

  • It’s great! I’ve had a hard time finding a mask that fits, that’s material I like, and that doesn’t fog up my glasses. (Let alone looks good) When I saw an ad from Proper Cloth for masks I was excited because they know fit, and sure enough the XL actually fits my face well, and I get a reasonable seal around the nose so my glasses don’t fog, and it’s comfortable and stylish to boot!

    June 2020  ·  Hans in Santa Clara, CA

  • Really well designed and crafted.

    June 2020  ·  John in Marblehead, MA

  • Fit is great. Thank you.

    June 2020  ·  Steven in New York, NY

  • It is a high quality product that fits well and I use daily.

    June 2020  ·  Jean in PORTLAND, OR

  • It fits my face well and straps go behind my head, not my ears. Comfortable.

    June 2020  ·  Denny in Swisher, IA

  • Very good quality- nice looking for work meetings. The logo tag is a little large on my small mask

    June 2020  ·  Kim in Clarkston, MI

  • Fits very nicely.

For customers located outside of the US, face masks typically leave our offices in New York 1-2 business days after ordering and are shipped via FedEx and will typically take 3-7 days to arrive.

Which mask size is best for me?

We offer our face masks in two sizes for adults—Large and Small. Additionally, we have even smaller, children sized masks.

You can find our size chart, mask size measurements, and recommendations for choosing the right size on this page.

What’s the safest mask fabric?

Many articles circulating online regarding fabric thread count recommendations for cloth masks are geared toward individuals using cloth alone as a means of protection.

Proper Cloth masks provide more protection than cloth does on its own, as they feature a highly effective 5-layer design: a 3-layer non-woven, lab tested polypropylene filter, tucked neatly between 2 layers of premium, breathable shirting fabric.

Mask fabrics should be selected for your color and design preferences, as the filter included with each mask is the primary form of protection. The protection provided by the fabric is supplementary.

Are these masks medical grade?

Our masks are not intended to be worn in medical settings. They are not intended as substitutes for N95, surgical, or procedural masks and are not considered PPE. The replaceable and sewn-in filters included in our masks are lab test certified BFE ≥99% (Bacterial Filtration Efficiency rating of 99% or greater for .1 micron-sized bacteria) and PFE PM0.1 ≥95% (Particle Filtration Efficiency of 95% or greater for .1 micron-sized particles). See the 3.0 mask filter lab test results here. Our previous 2.1 filter test results are here

What’s the difference between the different versions of the mask?

Each version of the Everyday Mask (v1.0, v1.1, and so on) features updates to the design or construction of the mask. Full details of these updates, as well as size specifications, can be found on our reference page.

Our TechKnit Mask has a different look and fit from the Everyday Mask, but it has the same 5-layer construction including premium shirt fabrics and a non-woven polypropylene filter. Full details of the TechKnit Mask's design can be found here, and measurement specifications can be found here.

Can I mix sizes in a mask multi-pack?

We are currently able to mix sizes in 10-packs. A 10-pack of masks is available in your choice of 10 Large, 10 Small, or 5 Large and 5 Small masks, a 3-pack of masks will include 3 masks of one chosen size (Large or Small), and a 60-pack will include 30 Large and 30 Small.

How can I wash my face mask?

We recommend hand washing our masks with soap and warm water, rinsing thoroughly, and allowing them to air dry. They can also be machine washed if you prefer. We also have a comprehensive step-by-step guide to hand washing your face mask.

Do you offer replacement filters?

Not currently. At this time we do not have replacement filters available for purchase, however the filter provided with each mask is washable and has been lab-tested to show that it remains fully effective after at least 20 washes (we didn’t test it for more washes than that). We’re still working to obtain replacement filters for our masks and hope to have them available in the future.

Can I return this mask?

Due to the personal nature of these products we cannot accept returns. Our Return Policy is located here, and our CX team is always happy to answer further questions should you have them. Contact our CX team.
