"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 the Center 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!
