The Sport Kit includes one Honeycomb Pollution mask, one disposable Coconut Sport Filter and two reusable exhalation valves for the filter. You breathe in through the activated carbon filter. When you breathe out, a flap in each exhalation valve allows the air to expel rapidly. This mask was evaluated by elite athletes competing in test events in Beijing before the air cleared for the games in August 2008.
The Sport Filters have a new source of carbon. Instead of bituminous coal, the new carbon layer is a cellulose base containing military grade steam activated carbon from coconut shells with no additional substances.
We still have some of the bituminous coal filters available, look at the bottom of the color list, they are clearly labeled.
Reduce exposure to: smoke, acrid air, dust, pollution, fragrances, diesel fumes, mold and other particles. Chemicals Filtered by Activated Carbon. Effective for poor air quality indoors or on airplanes. A porous, lightweight, washable shell holds and seals a disposable carbon filter with or without valves. Mask fits in a pocket. The adjustable ear loops allow for a personal fit and long wearing comfort, even with eye glasses, goggles or a helmet.
How long a filter lasts depends upon your sensitivities and environment. Replace filter when breathing becomes difficult or odor comes through even after adjusting nose wire. Before disposing of filter, remove valves, wash and place them in new filter. How long a filter lasts depends upon your sensitivities and environment. You can talk and be heard while wearing these masks. Folds to fit in pocket. Quick to put on and take off. Hangs on one ear when you eat or drink. Disclaimer.
