N95 Mask with Attitude – Mahalo
I only collect one thing. They are Jams World Vintage Hawaiian shirts. Can you imagine my surprise when I got an email saying they were making and selling a mask to ward off viruses?
Before you jump to confusions, these masks are the real deal and look very cool. Let me explain!
Tight Weave and Carbon Fiber
Much of the principle of a good mask to ward off viruses is a tight weave. Jams World uses a rayon that is the tightest weave because they want to have the bright colors set and hold. On top of that, they have developed and inside the filter that includes a tight weave and a carbon layer.

N95 Protection, But Not 100% Says Science
Jams World is quick to point out like all other mask makers are that no one is 100% sure that masks help. Most are pretty sure and therefore cannot make 100% claims of prevention. I put it in the “can’t hurt & probably helps category.”
