Backcountry Face Mask

Strange times sometimes call for surprisingly simple solutions, and our Backcountry Face Mask is ready to rise to the occasion. Designed to tie behind your head, it offers an adjustable, comfortable alternative to masks with ear loops. Its double-layered construction features a slot for a filter, and includes a pair of PM2.5 activated carbon filters that help block micron-level particles. And while we don't recommend running marathons with the mask equipped, it's a great option for all the moments in between.

Okay, but some kinks to work out

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I saw these through an online add and was excited about the design. I really like the overall look and design of this mask with the elastic headband and then the tie-on for around the neck. Its makes getting it on/off very easy. The material is also very nice and soft on the inside of the mask. there are some areas where this mask falls short: -The stitching of the elastic band for around your head is on the inside part of the mask, so it rubs on my cheeks consistently. I get little sores in these locations. It would be much better if the elastic was stitched to the outer mask rather than what's against your face. -I also think the elastic may be a bit too small/tight and this exacerbates the rubbing issue on my cheeks. I ordered the "One Size Fits Most" and the mask portion fits well, but the elastic is just a bit too tight. -Despite the inner material being soft and pliable, the seam running down the middle of the mask runs right over my chin. This seam also rubs constantly for me and is irritating. If at all possible, it would be much better to have the inner fabric be all a single piece, or attempt to move that seam somehow. For short stints, this mask works well, but I have a job where I need to wear a mask all day and this just is not the one to complete that job.

Good Mask

Fits well and ties around the back of your head rather than your ears. I kept it on for 6 hours straight on a flight and felt good.

Best mask I've found

Familiarity:

Fit:
True to size

I wear glasses, and nearly every other mask causes them to fog. This mask has a wide nose bridge that does a good job of sealing and not fogging. I also like the elastic top head strap and the lower ties - I can quickly pull it up or drop it down without digging it out of a pocket or wondering where I put it.

Functionally Poor... Looks Good Though

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer
Fit:
True to size

Mask design incorporates excess interior mask material. Said material is flimsy/baggy & does not hold its form during use. Result: the mask material gets drawn into your nostrils when breathing. Material also gets drawn into your mouth if you attempt using that pathway to get the fabric out of your nostrils. If you're on the couch with a 50 bpm heart rate, this likely won't be a problem. Pick a different mask for any other activity though. Surprised Backcountry didn't design this to be more useful for non-couch surfing activities. I purchased two of these masks... the other used by my gf. She had the same issue & gave up on it too. The mask does look good though. 1 star retained for that, -4 stars for function.

So comfortable! Soft material! Love the straps that goes behind your head instead of your ears. It has a wire on the nose area so you can adjust the fit. Awesome design! Love how we can get stylish with these mask. Highly recommend!

I ordered 2 of these mask. Love the backcountry design! Love the soft material. They are so comfortable to wear. Love the way it fits. Love how it has filters to put in the mask. These mask will come in handy when I’m working and when I go to business’s that require a mask. The best part is how it has straps to go behind your head instead of your ears. So much better! No more sore ears! I highly recommend!

I got this mask from Backcountry hoping that since it was made by an outdoor company, that they would have made it in a way that was better than average for being active. Unfortunately, it is not. The picture shows a single loop at the bottom to go around the back of your neck, but mine has non-stretchy ties instead that I do not like at all. I have numerous masks with the same PM 2.5 filters, but this is the only mask in which the filter has so much room to move & slide around that it bunches up into a wad and does not stay flat. I wore it while running yesterday & every time I pulled it up over my nose & mouth, the inner fabric liner got inhaled straight into my face instead of it staying away from my airway openings (nostrils & mouth). So all in all, I am extremely disappointed in this mask. In my opinion, it is awful for active endeavors and I will only be wearing it when the other one I have with head loops is in the wash.

Delightful Design

This has become my go-to mask for wearing long periods of time, with the design minimizing stress points and not even hurting my ears. The adjustable nose-pad feature is a very nice addition, with the ability to mold the mask so my glasses do not fog up. Great mask with tons of design features.

One of my fave masks to wear! First wore this one on a 7 mile urban walk/hike test run in El Paso, TX. Very comfortable. Easy to put on & remove. Breathable. Love the material. Appreciate the filters (02 included!). Highly recommend. *Bonus- attractive.

Doesn’t work if you wear glasses

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit:
Runs large

The pliable nose piece is way too bulky, it is impossible to wear the mask and glasses at the same time. And if I pull the nose piece further down on my nose so my glasses don’t rest on it, then the mask looks deformed where my nose should be. Not very comfortable at all.

Favorite Mask

Fit:
True to size

I love this mask simple for how comfortable it is. The strap that goes around your head instead of over your ears means it's much more comfortable to wear for extended periods of time. I've had meetings, trip to the store, and just any time that I've needed to wear a mask be much more pleasant since my ears don't hurt or I don't get a headache from the strain of other masks. Love it!

Does the size large have a larger mask or just longer straps that the one size fits most?

I just got mine and I love it. It fits great. We must all be responsible and wear a face mask in public crowed places. Its the only way to get through this. Together and responsibly.

I love the over all look and feel of this on your face. However, I wish there where Multiply sizes, the fixed top strap is really tight on my head making it hard for me to wear for a long time. Besides the sizing, BC can't do no wrong all of there in house gear is stellar.

>Rating:

What exactly is different between the one size and the large? Is it just the length of the elastic and ties, or is is the size of the actual mask fabric in the front, too? Thanks!

Hey hey Kyle, great question. The Large will have larger face fabric but likely the same length ties, which are pretty long to start with. For reference all images are of the One Size on a model with average size face.

>Rating:

Is the fabric slightly stiff? I'm looking for a mask where I won't suck in fabric when I'm huffing and puffing on the trail.

Hey, this is a soft fabric mask, light and airy. However, it will move with your breath.

It doesn't fray or anything like that if that's what your asking, but I can say that you wont inhale fabric.

Does Backcountry sell replacement filters? How often should the filters be replaced?

Hey Hamid, We do not currently sell replacement filters. The filters are good up to 3 days depending on the frequency of use. Some folks have started making replacement filters out of coffee filters as well!

Could you include the approximate dimensions of your mask on your website? Not interested in buying something I can't return without knowing how large it is or trying one on.

I’m not sure if this would work for my Afro textured hair. What is the elastic around the head like? Is it fabric covered elastic or just elastic?

Hey Jalex! Not to worry the mask won't tug on your hair! It is fabric-covered. it does sit snugly around the head so if your hair wants to curl around the band, it might do that.

>Rating:

Does this have 2 elastic straps or one and a tie? The pictures aren't clear. It says tie, some of the new photos show that but others show all elastic. Thanks!

Hey Lauren, This has one elastic strap and one tie. I personally love it because I can pull it down and wear it around my neck when not in use.

Is this machine washable?

Hey Jessie, Yes, this is a 100% poly mask and is completely machine washable.
