If you’re still struggling to find a face mask that’s comfortable, breathable, and most importantly, protective enough to wear during workouts, then you’re in luck. Shoppers have discovered a set of reusable masks on Amazon that check all of those boxes — and they’re about to be your new go-to face coverings.
Made with a super soft blend of polyester zinc and cotton, the Bloch Soft Stretch Reusable Face Masks have shoppers calling them “very comfy and breathable” to wear while exercising. The dual-layered masks have an impressive 4.4 average star rating from over 600 shoppers, and plenty of people say they actually stay in place throughout their workouts, so you won’t have to touch it or readjust it as often. Since the brand is known for its high-quality dancewear, you can trust they’re ready to handle physical activity.
The Bloch masks feature a contoured design that properly covers your nose but prevents them from gradually poking into your eyes (an issue that’s especially common for people with smaller faces), while the adjustable ear loops make it easy for everyone to get a comfortable fit. Plus, many reviewers with glasses note that their lenses fog up way less due to the curved shape of the mask. And if you’re exercising outdoors, they even offer UV protection that the brand says is 25 percent higher than normal fabric.
“As a former dancer, I was excited to purchase these because I have always believed in the Bloch brand for quality and comfort,” wrote one shopper. “They fit my petite female face nicely and also fit my 8 and 10-year-old sons’ faces as well… The adjustable ear slider is a great feature and is soft and not bothersome at all. This is the first mask I’ve tried on that I feel like I could actually wear for a long period of time without having a lot of anxiety or feeling overheated.”

Besides the fact that the masks are extremely comfortable, customers also love that they’re machine-washable — and many say that they hold up well to repeated washings, too. You can throw them in the wash with your laundry after a sweaty run, then let them air dry so that they’re ready for your next workout session. Both the black and white colors come in packs of three, so you can always have an extra mask on hand.
People of all ages are making the switch to these comfy face masks, according to the reviews section. One person wrote: “We've purchased every kind of mask lately from medical-grade to homemade. These are by FAR the favorite of my entire family. Comfy, snug but not tight, and breathable. The adjustable straps mean they fit everyone from our 10-year-old to my 6'5" husband. We ordered two more packs and put most of the others away.”
Even if you’re not exercising as often as you did pre-quarantine, Bloch’s face masks are clearly comfortable and breathable enough to be your new favorite masks for everyday use.
