What's New With Version 3.0?Version 3.0 of our original FU mask has seen some dramatic improvements which places it firmly among the BEST consumer grade masks on the market. The FU 3.0 is now a 3-layer mask featuring two cotton layers with a 600+ thread count, and a polypropylene filter layer sewn in between. Furthermore to address fit we've added an articulated nosepiece and adjustable straps that go behind the ears.
Fit: The Adult/Onesize mask will fit most adult faces (women & men); the Youth/Onesize will fit smaller faces ;)
Made Local: Hero has sourced local materials and employs local sewists here in Vancouver, BC to produce all of our masks.
A 'Top Performer' Among Consumer Grade Face Masks Based on an independent study by CBC Marketplace of over 20 masks, Hero's new FU 3.0 mask would be categorized as a 'top performer' on par with N95 masks.
The Story Behind Our FU Face Mask The world is experiencing a unprecedented event in the COVID-19 pandemic. And while it wasn't immediately clear how Hero Culture could help, that changed with onset of a massive shortage in PPE's (Personal Protective Equipment); notably face masks.
On Tuesday March 24th the idea to help by making a DIY face mask from available materials was hatched. On Wednesday March 25th fabric was sourced locally in Richmond, BC from a new supplier, a pattern was sourced online (available free here: freesewing.org) and we began making prototypes. What ensued was two solid days of testing, pricing, marketing, documenting our story and getting ready to offer this product to the public.
Piggybacking on our One For One toque drive we've decided to do a One For One mask drive; Hero will donate a mask to someone in need for every mask sold.*
