Gerson began as a small manufacturing outfit more than 60 years ago in Boston, MA.  Today, Gerson distinguishes itself as a vertically integrated, prime manufacturer of a full range of air-purifying respirators, from filtering facepieces to half-mask to full face respirators, all products of outstanding design and value. Filtering facepiece respirators for example, such as various styles of N95 respirators, have been produced in Middleboro, MA since 1985 on unique, high-speed equipment of our own design and construction, incorporating our own melt-blown filter material to provide high-performing filtration with exceedingly comfortable breathing characteristics.

If you watch our video review these masks do have a rubber smell at first due to the headbands. The smell dissipates fairly quickly, but want you to be aware.

Comfort During the Pandemic

These are the most comfortable N-95 masks I’ve ever worn. Patients seem to understand me better when I wear the Gerson N-95, maybe because there’s more room for my mouth even though the fit is secure enough to keep my glasses from fogging. I like that each mask is individually wrapped. This is my favorite mask for work.

Great breathability

A friend recommended these. Yes indeed, they do have the best breathability of all N95s I've tried! I haven't fit-tested but so far I'm very pleased with fit and comfort. Well done. Also love supporting Massachusetts company!

I have wanted to support an American mask maker for a long time. Thank you for providing a superior product!

Straps keep breaking

Really love the breathability of these masks but very frustrated with the frequency of the straps breaking. I have reduced the frequency of breaking by being extremely sensitive to how far I stretch the straps when putting the mask on. I Have given several to friends taking flights of 5 - 6 hours and they have experienced straps breaking part way through the flight (not while putting it on or taking it off). So if you like the breathability of the mask, I suggest taking spare masks with you.

Straps snap off

We';ve had at least 5 masks where the straps have snapped off. They';re super comfortable but am very disappointed with the quality as they are not reliable. I usually bring an extra mask to prevent from not having a mask available but shouldn';t have to as the price is very high for these masks.

Best fit for my small face

Fits me well with no gaps. Very breathable. Head straps have not broken for me. I have a small face and wear glasses. These are excellent. If you have a big ole face you are not going to like these.

Only mask that seals on my face!

This is the best N95 out there for my deep-set eyes and narrow, small face! This seals perfectly on the 1st try. Also, it’s very much easier to breathe in and wear for extended periods of time. As an severe asthmatic, this is perfection! I am safe in this! :pray::skin-tone-2::pray::skin-tone-2::pray::skin-tone-2::pray::skin-tone-2:

I love this mask

This mask is very roomy and breathable. The way it is shaped makes it easy to get a good fit with no gaps. I can wear this mask all day with no problems.

Good for small face and glasses

It has been hard to find a mask in a smaller size. I ordered the sample box which has some size small masks. The Gerson is not a size small but it fits my small face the best as well as allowing my glasses to sit correctly and not fog up. I love the platypus shape as it doesn';t suck in with each breath. I can even work out at the gym with this mask. I have not had any problem with the straps or noticed any rubber smell at initial wearing.
