This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Comments are open on this deal, and will be left provided they abide by our site rules. Please keep the discussion on-topic about these facemasks, and not about Coronavirus in general and wider issues - see our comment on this for more info. You can read official advice on using facemasks from the WHO (https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/advice-for-public/when-and-how-to-use-masks) and the UK Government (gov.uk/gov…ome)
These appear to be genuine FFP2 or KN95 facemarks and they must be a better fit than the normal surgical masks that most people seem to be wearing. I can't quite see why they apparently contain activated charcoal filters.
These are not FFP3 masks.
They are not valved masks so they will be more difficult to breathe through in my experience.

Thanks sorry, just looked them up from memory, haha
These are not N95s, they are KN95s, and at this price the CE marking is definitely suspicious.

KN is Chinese standard, too far from N95. Certificates validated under a table, so I would not count it as a protective mask whatsoever. C O L D
As above, very wary of the certification on these. Genuine FFP2 respirators tend not to be advertised as containing activated charcoal, and looking closely at the product image I think the CE mark and associated blurb may be photoshopped in (although a reasonable person may disagree.) Plenty of exposés on YouTube of some of the rubbish that knockoff Chinese masks and respirators are made of

The standard can even be self-certificated with not validation at all, not even a dodgy one. Just having a proper certificate is also not good enough as it might not have been tested as PPE.
Why do any of you think these things make a difference?

Chinese cert standards remaind me my local chinese restaurant. They used to offer very nice chicken meals. Apparently that tasty bits were not a chicken meat. That's the difference.

Voted hot. If these are proper KN95, this is a bargain. Numerous comments on previous deals, people debating what is better, a 3 ply, a reusable one, how inefficient they are, etc. These are the ones to go for, KN95 is the Chinese equivalent of N95 or FFP2. If these are genuine, these offer over 99% protection. These sell for £2.50-3.50 each usually, so this is a proper good price.

All three pictures used in the listing are of different masks anyway, none have got the dashed lines in the same place and the one the woman is wearing doesn't have the CE mark or the metal strip showing, which no doubt stands for Caveat Emptor.

Also the merchant doesn't seem to publish their physical address, just email and phone no.
As others have said, tread carefully, as likely to be fake: hse.gov.uk/saf…htm

I got caught out to the tune of £40 for 20 a few months ago but was lucky in that I purchased from a reputable retailer (My Memory) who swiftly refunded me when I brought this to their attention.

I believe they were already aware of the issue as they had already pulled the masks from their website - shame they didn't proactively contact purchasers to refund them but at least I got my money back when I raised it with them.
if you're going to wear them why not buy washable ones, most 3 for a tenner instead of filling the pockets of profiteers and landfill....

Washable ones aren't PPE.

Washable!
I still remember that Adidas deal for 3 washable, more expensive than these going very hot, in fact the deal of the day and now I see these going freezing cold...This tells me people have no clue what they vote on, what is the purpose of wearing a mask or the fact they are wearing masks to tick a box, as they have no choice. Somebody in a previous comments asked what is PPE. Really? After 6 months of lockdown people don't know what PPE is but they actually vote on such products?

There is no comparison in between the washable ones (even if they are Adidas) and these (if these are proper KN95). These are serious masks, if you wear one you will see you can barely breath with it (yes, you don't wear a mask as a fashionable thing, you wear it with a purpose) and this should tell you these provide more protection.

Providing these are genuine or they meet the standards off course, but even if they don't, they will still be better than most, if not any washable or disposable 3 ply available. Yes, not as cheap as other masks, but these are not face covers, these are proper masks. I voted hot already! The cold votes here will put people off to buy decent products.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) - HSE(It means suitable for/as)


Yes I understood that, but couldn't understand why washable masks aren't classed at PPE according to your definition.

Washable masks mainly protects against transmission to others. The purpose of PPE is to protect the wearer, hence the first P in PPE.
