2. Urban Traveller & Co.
Urban Traveller & Co.’s Banale Active Mask is not only pretty as hell, but also pretty reliable in the defense department. It is made from Soffioplus, an innovative material that can effectively filter out many harmful particles including pollution, dust, pollen, spore, and bacteria. It’s also made to feel comfortable when worn.
The Banale Active Mask is easy to use as well. No filters need replacing—they can be used for long periods, and when it’s time to wash, you can just throw them into a washing machine. But make sure you only use cold water! You can also hand wash them if you prefer. The coolest feature of this mask is that it’s portable. It has its own pocket, so you can simply fold your mask up and tuck it in after use.
The Banale Active Mask comes in four colors: grey, blue, green, and pink. It won’t arrive at Urban Traveller & Co. stores until May 30th, but you can pre-order now to make sure you cop one when it does.

1. O2 Canada Mask
If you’re looking for not only a stylish facemask but one that’s also high-quality, this premium reusable face mask brand will definitely impress. The O2 Canada Mask can filter out up to 99% of fine particulate matter, protecting you against airborne bacteria and viruses. The mask has been graded by Nelson Laboratories, the global testing lab that gives advisory on medical devices.
O2 Canada Mask is made of quality materials—around the hard shell exterior is Japanese medical-grade silicon for a comfortable and safe seal. Inside the mask, for added protection, is a pocket for a replaceable filter, where each can last up to two weeks. A box of O2 Canada Mask comes with three filters.
For additional style, the outer hard shell can be detached and replaced with shells in different colors—white, black, red, and blue. But perhaps the coolest feature of the O2 Canada Mask is its mobile app that can help track your mask’s filter life and even check pollution levels. It’s available on iOS and Android.
Price: This O2 Canada Mas is a bit on the pricier end at P4,000++ per mask, but if you ask us, it’s a worthy investment for your protection.
