They say their two layers of 100% cotton face coverings are flexible and comfortable, coverings cover the nose and chin and include a ¼” elastic with soft touch toggle which adjusts to secure your fit.
I was given the opportunity to review the non medical pack of 2 face coverings in plain black and plain khaki. Other colours, designs and pack sizes are available to purchase https://www.tilley.com/uk_en/men/accessories/face-coverings.html
The masks arrive in clear resealable bag which would be handy to keep to store your face mask when not in use. First impressions I noticed how soft and lightweight the fabric felt, being 100% cotton these would not only be comfortable to wear but easier to breathe through, they have a small Tilley logo tag stitch into the side seam edge. They have an internal pocket to which filters can be placed and on their website they have a handy print out template to help you cut filters to the correct size which I thought was really helpful.
The mask was easy to put on and adjust to fit using the soft touch toggles. The nose wire was easy to shape although I did notice it isn’t centrally secured to the mask therefore was prone to sliding out of place.
I would personally say I have a small/medium woman’s face and the fit was good although slightly baggy under the chin area, it felt lovely, soft and comfortable on my face and breathing felt easier compared to some other make of masks I have worn, but unfortunately on talking to my husband to see what he thought the mask fell down off my nose. No matter how tight I adjusted the mask when talking it would slip down. Hubby said just don’t talk which would benefit him haha. My husband gave one a try and the fit was much better on him, he was able to talk with it on without it slipping down off his nose.
Therefore I would say this mask would be more suited to someone a size medium/large
