I recently discovered the best face mask to wear outside. My friend Karen gave me two Out & About Supply face masks to try. She said “You will love the coverage and unique one-strap fit.”
Since life is very different during the Covid-19 pandemic, Los Angeles based Kathryn Hampton, owner of local interior design firm K2S Studio, and Dickey DeBiase, Out + About Supply, applied their years of experience and resources in new ways to create comfortable and stylish masks.
Here’s 5 things I like about their proprietary “one-strap wonder”:
- The tightly-woven cotton fabric has been deemed by health experts as the fabric offering the greatest protection second only to N95 masks
- It’s unique and full coverage fit on my face. The one-strap goes under my hair and holds in place behind my ears. There is an adjustable area on the strap for a snug comfortable fit.
- Washable and eco-friendly.
- Made in Los Angeles
- I can loosen the strap when exercising outdoors alone, and pull my mask up and tighten the fit when another person is nearby. Best of all I can lower my mask below my chin, instead of taking the mask off and leaving it on a dirty table, chair or in my purse. It is on me, ready to pull up for full coverage when needed.
The creators are giving too! A portion of each sale will go toward building recreational space in underserved communities through The Los Angeles Neighborhood Land Trust.
The new Los Angeles-based online company, Out & About Supply set out to design and create a collection of luxurious and stylish masks, blankets, totes, hip bags, and duffel bags to promote mental well-being by encouraging people to safely enjoy the outdoors for a walk, hike, picnic, small gathering or a weekend away.
