There's no such thing as a universally perfect mask.

All the masks we sell have greater than 95% filtration, but that filtration is only as good as how well the mask fits your face and how comfortable it is. Some people prefer soft ear-loops of KN95 or the soft fabric of a surgical mask. Others like the breathability of duckbill-style N95 respirators, or even the convenience of a fold-style masks. 

People’s faces come in an infinite variety: thick beards, small chins, sensitive ears, beautiful Romanesque noses — all of which can make finding the best mask to protect you a struggle.

PPE can be expensive, and we realize that it would cost well over $1,000 to buy a box of every mask we sell. That's why we've created the Mask Sampler Kit, so you can find the perfect mask for you and your unique face. 

We feel so strongly about people getting better masks that we're selling these kits below our costs to make them available to you. And, we're working with the manufacturers to drive the price down even lower. This is our mission and it's too important for profit.

Each kit comes with every American-Made mask we sell and in every size we offer, including 10 N95 Respirators, 10 Surgical Masks, 2 KN95 masks, and an Armbrust Ear Saver.

Brands included: 

  • Armbrust American
  • Indiana Face Mask
  • Aegle
  • Protective Health Gear
  • Demetech 
  • Shawmut 
  • ACI 
  • Gerson 

Styles Included:

  • 3ply Surgical Masks
  • KN95 Respirators
  • N95 Flat Fold Respirators
  • N95 Cup Respirators
  • N95 Duckbill-Style Respirators

Each mask option comes individually sealed and marked  with a QR code that links to all the mask fit instructions. Please follow the approved instructions to ensure proper use.

*Remember: This is a sampler kit, and these masks should be considered samples —  not protective gear. NIOSH regulations stipulate that all N95 masks must be sent in their original packaging, which these obviously are not.

I was very please with my order

Too many kids masks

I ordered the sampler kit, but too many of the masks were small or for children, and we don';t have any kids. We just needed large masks, and there were really only a few of those. It would be nice to have a kids sampler kit, and an adult one. For the price, we paid a lot for each usable mask.

Excellent idea!

I bought 2 kits for family members and they really appreciate the variety of styles and sizes. Thank you so much for offering this option of masks from several US manufacturers!

Best idea ever!

Loved this idea. I found a couple of masks I liked. And will have spouse try on and find one to fit his face.

Excellent opportunity to try

Thank you so much for the inexpensive option and ability to try out so many mask choices for our family! Of course we all have different comfort and fit preferences and there really is no better way to compare the subtle differences between masks than for each person to try on and test each one. Knowing they are all USA made and tested is a good feeling too. The QR codes and individual bags for each mask make comparisons easy. Having different masks from different manufacturers in hand was so valuable for us. We highly recommend going with the sampler before you try to guess on the best masks for your family!

Great idea!

I live with adults. It is so great to try on masks at home. The surgical masks & N95 masks fit adults well. I prefer to not have the head straps otherwise I would have bought more of the duckbilled respirator.

Best Money Spent!

Buying the mask sampler was the best money I ever spent because I finally found a N95 mask that fits my small face. Then I bought a whole box of that particular mask and feel so much more comfortable riding the subway knowing how well this mask fits and has 95% filtration. Thank you Armbrust for taking the effort to make the sampler kits.

Thank you!

Thank you for offering a sampler and for identifying a couple of options for smaller faces. Thank you also for promoting American manufacturers and workers.
