Now that things are slowly returning to normal, we Malaysians are also slowly getting on with our lives.
That means we're slowly going back to the office, we're slowly going to our favourite restaurants to eat and also, we're also slowly heading back to our gyms to work out.
But some of us are still wary of working out at the gym with other sweaty strangers without a face mask (and no, you shouldn't work out
while wearing a mask).
So, if you're one of those who feel insecure exercising without face protection, we have the perfect thing for you.
High-tech exercise mask
World-renowned sports company Under Armour has finally released their much-anticipated face mask that you can safely wear while exercising in Malaysia.
Called the UA SPORTSMASK, it is a reusable, water-resistant performance face mask designed for maximum breathability by Under Armour's innovation team.
According to its press release, this first-of-its-kind mask functions to reduce the spread of respiratory droplets by the wearer.
The top of the mask features a moldable nose-bridge to help secure it in place and mitigate airflow to the eyes, helping to prevent glasses from fogging up (something we spectacle-wearers totally hate, amirite?).
What makes the UA SPORTSMASK so different from other face masks out there is that it features a unique, three-layer model engineered for athletes during performance:
· LAYER 1: SPACER FABRIC
- It is light but has air pockets for structure, so it stays off the mouth and nose for better airflow.
· LAYER 2: OPEN-CELL FOAM
- The breathable middle layer lets air through but makes it hard for moisture and sweat to pass.
· LAYER 3: UA ISO-CHILL
- This fabric feels cool against the skin, stretches, and is treated with PROTX2™, a non-metal anti-microbial technology which inhibits growth of bacteria on the mask.
On top of that, Under Armour said that the PROTX2 technology has been shown in laboratory tests to destroy COVID-19, so you'll confirm be safe from the coronavirus if it reaches your mask.
Most important of all, it is fully washable and durable, making it more eco-friendly than many single-use, disposable options.
If you're ready to get your hands on one, the UA SPORTSMASK retails for RM109
It is now available for purchase at the Under Armour online store
and all Under Armour brand houses, except Suria Sabah from August 2020 onwards.
Go grab it before it's all sold out, guys.
