Hot off the Press: Elevation Outdoors | Favorite Family Friendly Face Coverings for Your Next Outing
December 17, 2020
"Without a doubt, parenting in a pandemic is next-level parenting. The daily uncertainty can be overwhelming, even for the most seasoned of moms and dads. But if you’re anything like us, staying active and staying safe still rise to the top of our priorities list as a mom and dad.
According to theCenter for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), masks may help protect from COVID-19. They advise that masks should be worn by individuals two and older, should be made of two or more layers and masks that fit over your nose and to below your chin are most effective. Needless to say, I’ve researched and tested a lot of face coverings (so far) that fit into these categories. Here are some of our family’s top favorites!
One of two bike bag builders-gone face mask makers in this list, North St. Bags is our west coast representative in this list! Sewn in the Pacific Northwest, North St. Cotton Face Masks are the burliest options on this list and (just like another bike bag builder further down this list) some of the most fun colors/designs of the bunch! This classic face covering design (ears loops or adjustable over the head elastic and ties) come in three sizes, small/youth (perfect for my 4 year old), medium (perfect for me) and large. My son especially loves his North St. mask because it is a little thicker (10oz. canvas outer layer) and has fun topo lines screen printed on it."
Shout out to Ryan Scava over at Elevation Outdoors for testing out our face masks and including them in their family friendly mask roundup! With kid-friendly sizing and colors, we designed our masks with comfort and safety in mind!
Thanks to everyone who took the time to respond to our feedback survey earlier this summer. We were blown away by your kind words and excellent ideas. Thank you! Read up on the results from the survey and what folks are saying about North St. Bags.
“The North St. The Weekender Backpack checks all the boxes for me and is one of my favorite backpacks for most trips in the five-plus day category,” writes Zeke Kamm. “I LOVE the visual style of the bag and if I had to bring a bunch of stuff around with me to work or school, this would be my top pick for best everyday bag, too.”
Even though it feels like summer just began, students are heading back to school soon.Whether you’re hyped for classes to start or still grasping to every last summer moment, we want you to return to campus in style with these staff picks from our crew in Portland.
