If you’re committed to a 2021 exercise resolution, you’ll want to make sure you’ve got the proper gear, including a face mask. Thankfully, not only Under Armour Masks ideal performance-focused face coverings, they’re also on sale. Now you can nab 2 Sportsmasks for $40, a decent chunk o’ change off the normal price of $30 per mask. There’s no need to enter a code, and the discount applies to all colorways, including the Project Rock edition of the mask.
The UA Sportsmask was initially released in June, but in about the time it takes to listen to your morning episode of The Daily, it sold out. In these in-between months, the legend has grown. The few who received Under Armour masks raved. One colleague at Condé Nast Traveler said that running with the mask was so pleasant that she signed up for a marathon. Imagine liking a face mask so much that you’d subject yourself to running a distance that’s literally killed a man!
Sure, the Under Armour SportsMask isn’t exactly the cheapest mask on the market. (We’ve found plenty of masks that are good and less expensive, or good and much cooler.) But the SportsMask is genuinely engineered for workouts better than any other disposable or reusable face mask we’ve tried. It’s triple-layered, but still breathable because each of these layers is made of a specifically engineered synthetic fabric. The nose bridge wire runs most of the length of the mask, creating a tight seal for glasses-wearers. There’re 6 colors (with the black-on-charcoal-on-black having the most low-key logo). And the SportsMask has soft, stretchy ear loops, which means it won’t yank on your ears when you wear it for long periods of time.
As we roll into the the 2021 season of the pandemic, the face masks you panic-bought last March are probably starting to show their wear. Or maybe they’re fine for everyday, but you’re still hunting for the holy grail: a running/exercising/CrossFitting-in-the-park mask that isn’t leaving you gasping for air. Even if the UA SportsMask doesn’t make you want to run a marathon, it’s probably better than anything you already have.
