I have two reusable masks, both made in Kamloops by small business owners. One has a metal nose wire, and the other doesn’t. They are both great to use, and I do so, but I favour the first a bit more because I wear glasses and they fog up with wireless masks.
However, the elastic in my wire mask has loosened up a bit, which I fixed with a needle and thread. I intend to hold onto these masks for as long as possible.
I am not telling you this to put you to sleep, but to make a point. I have only tried two types of locally made reusable masks and they are both well made from good quality materials.
