AIR by MicroClimate is a full faced, fully-filtered super mask that seals around the neck and filters both incoming and outgoing air.
AIR’s scratch-resistant acrylic dome covers the mouth, nose, and eyes, while allowing for a full, clear view of your face and a wide field of view. Inside, four replaceable HEPA 11 filters placed around the frame of the mask filter 95% of 0.30μm airborne particles. Two dual speed fans positioned at the bottom of the mask pull air in through the top filters, down across the face, and out through the filters at the bottom to keep the mask fresh and fog-free.
AIR seals around the neck instead of the face using an impermeable fabric that seals around the mask frame, making it more comfortable to wear for longer periods of time. This fabric scarf is easily removed and machine washable.
At the top of the mask are two rechargeable batteries that provide from 8-12 hours of continuous use per charge depending on fan speed. The mask can also be charged while wearing it. The included filters last 3-4 months, and are attached with velcro so they easily snap into place. This makes it incredibly easy to remove and replace with no tools required.
AIR is designed for anything from air transit, to daily tasks like grocery shopping. If you would like to have a conversation while wearing it, MicroClimate recommends using the low fan setting. You can also use Apple AirPods with LiveListen feature to create a link between your phone's microphone and the earbuds. A similar feature is also available through Sound Amplifier on Android.
Note: Before purchasing, please check with local guidelines and recommendations to see if this product is suitable for your intended use.

The mask is not FAA approved, but it meets all FAA regulations that are applicable.How do you talk to people with this on?
The fan has two settings. You can hear on both settings, but the low setting is best for conversations.Do you know if the mask gets hot the longer you wear it?
The fans in the mask keep air flowing at a good rate and keep the mask at an even temperature. It also depends on the climate you are wearing the mask in, but no, the mask does not increase in temperature the longer you wear it.Will it filter out smoke?
We have not done tests with cigarette smoke specifically, but the filters we use are HEPA filters, which are the most common type of filter used in AIR purifiers.Why does this exist?
AIR was originally designed for air travel. For people who want to ensure that they and the people around them were safe. If you have flown during Covid, you know that you can’t rely on other people to wear their masks properly. Since it has launched, customers have used AIR for everything from travel to grocery shopping and everything in between. It’s not for everyone, but it’s a super safe option those who travel, live life and work in jobs where the safety of their customers is paramount.Do they meet airline requirements?
AIR does meet all airline and FAA requirements, but not all airlines will allow you to wear AIR alone. Some will require that you wear a "normal" mask underneath. Some will still not allow it.How do you clean the visor / interior and can you use household cleaners on the exterior? Can you disinfect the interior with UV light disinfecting lights?
The visor is easily cleaned with a mild cleaning spray. You will want to avoid anything with alcohol.
The fabric can be removed and machine washed. We have not done it with UV lights, but that could also work.
It is not officially FDA approved and was not originally designed for medical use.How is battery life? Does the fan work while charging?
On the high fan speed you will get up to 8HRS and on the low speed we have seen up to 12HRS.
You can run the fans while the mask is charging. You can also use an external battery pack for extended life.
Yes, the mask will start to fog up if the fans are off, but will quickly clear out when turned back on.
