Under Armour press release
The top of the mask features a moldable nose bridge, which creates a tight seal and prevents glasses from fogging up.
Under ArmourLacrosse player Taylor Cummings, midfielder for the Baltimore Ride, models the Sportsmask.
The mask has three layers: spacer fabric on the outside, a middle layer of open-cell foam, and an antibacterial layer on the inside.
The inner layer is made out of Under Armour’s specially-developed “Iso-Chill” fabric, which stretches and keeps cool against skin.
It is treated with PROTX2, an antibacterial and anti-odor fabric technology designed by IFTNA, an athletic fabrics manufacturer.
Under Armour says that PROTX2 has been shown in laboratory tests to destroy COVID-19, but further tests are being conducted by the Environmental Protection Agency.
The middle foam layer provides structure, and also distances the inner layer from the outer layer for comfort and breathability.
The Sportsmask was available for $US30, but sold out within an hour of its release this week.
Athletes looking to get their hands on this mask can preorder on Under Armour’s website. Preorders will ship on or before August 17.
