For anyone counting down the days until it’s warm enough to move your living room workouts to the park, the wait is almost over. Just remember: If there are others working out nearby, you’ll still need to wear a mask to protect them and you. After testing nearly 100 different masks, we can confidently recommend these adjustable face masks from Outdoor Research. Both Camilla Cho, Vox Media senior VP of e-commerce, and Strategist writer Louis Cheslaw are fans. “I wore it on a longish run (six miles), and it was comfortable the whole way through and very breathable,” says Cho, who also appreciates that the masks come with disposable filters for extra protection. The masks also feature a bendable nose wire for a snug fit. And today they’re 30 percent off, so you can stock up in preparation for a very active spring and summer.
The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
