Honeycomb Mask, or Honeycomb ACF Pollution Mask, is made with a disposable activated carbon
filter that is sealed inside a comfortable lightweight frame. The
carbon fabric works with inner layers of filtration material to trap
these indoor and outdoor pollutants: fragrances, particles, cigarette
soot, smog, dust, diesel fumes, formaldehyde. It also filters from
50% to 95% of household chemicals depending on the substance. Mask can be worn without the filters to avoid gnats and other bugs.
The Honeycomb Mask was designed to effectively seal in the carbon filter. This filter does not replace industrial strength
respirators and is not meant for extreme occupational exposure, but for most every day tasks, this mask is more than sufficient to filter
common indoor and outdoor air pollution. Through testing, the honeycomb carbon face mask was shown to be comparable to a standard N95 mask
in the filtration of particles 1.0 microns in size and larger. This face mask trapped 99-100% of particles in that size range.
During travel, the disposable activated carbon filter cleans the recycled air on airplanes,
trains, and buses. The filtration helps to reduce irritation of nasal passages and of the middle ear. This helps minimized the build up of
pressure and inner ear pain.
long the activated carbon filter lasts depends on your sensitivities, your usage, and environmental factors. You should change filters
when breathing becomes difficult. You can purchase replacement carbon filters for this mask. The ear loops adjust for a comfortable fit, even
with eye glasses, goggles, a hat, or helmet. This mask is washable, but the mask should not require frequent washings.

Honeycomb Mask Construction and Components
Components of the Honeycomb Mask: Polyester shell, cotton/polyester tape over wire encased in plastic, latex free
Components of the Carbon filter: Air laid web material consisting of powdered activated carbon from bituminous
coal bound onto a polyester support material with a modified acrylonitrile copolymer latex (this synthetic latex does not contain
the protein of natural rubber).
For those with severe allergies or reactions, please consult your physician prior to use.
Enjoying Chicken Chores & Walks Once Again
Reviewed by: Jill / Asthma Sufferer from Utah
I live in Utah and the inversion this past year trapped pollution due to cold temperatures really had me locked inside and not able to do the things I enjoy. This mask is comfortable, light weight, I don't look like an alien anymore and it completely blocks odors and dust when you use the charcoal filter. Now I can still get time with my pasture pets and get out for walks with my dog even if the air quality is poor. Thank you Achoo Alergy!

I have Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. I bought this mask after reading that it would filter out odors. It worked only slightly better than wearing two of the over-the-counter paper masks, and breathing is more difficult with the filtered mask. I tried using two filters, but breathing was very difficult.
Multiple Chemical Sensitivities & Mold Allergy
Reviewed by: I Love to Breathe from Jacksonville, FL
I have a chronic lung disease and developed multiple chemical sensitivities. The honeycomb mask w/carbon filter has enabled me to be in public and in crowds, otherwise I'd be confined. Fragrances & chemicals are irritants which cause my airway to swell. This mask helps tremendously but does not completely block out all irritants. I am also allergic to mold and the mask is great on high humid and rainy or damp days. Additionally, it is helpful in cold weather. I keep one with me at all times. This mask has been the most comfortable and worked best of any I have found thus far. I was stunned that the price almost doubled in six months, that hurt.
Customer Q & A
Q1: Does the mask filter out smoke? Thanks A: Yes. Effectiveness will vary based on how well you fit the mask and the conditions where you are wearing it, but most people who opt for this mask do so b/c it does tackle fragrance, smoke and odors as well as common particle allergens.
Q2: Which mask will you reccomend to use when riding motorcycles in busy roads?
A: Respro Techno. It creates a nice seal around the face, is fully adjustable and the filter has some activated carbon to compliment the particle filter media. So this filter type will trap the exhaust as well as particles like dust. I prefer it over the Honeycomb simple because it can be adjusted to fit much snugger, which when riding, is important unless you're rocking a full face or street helmet.
Q3: I am travelling to Beijing, China in April. The pollution has been downgraded from poor to poisonous. They've even called the air quality "soupy" and gone on so far as to say that the city is not a safe place to live, work, or raise a family. Will this mask be sufficient for a brief stay of approximately 3 days under these conditions? If so, how often would you suggest the filter be changed? I cannot say as of right now how often or how long I will be outdoors, but figure that if the air is that bad outside, it has to be at minimum a poor condition inside buildings as well. Any thoughts?
A: Yes, this should significantly help you in this case. Particularly with this type of city pollution, the activated carbon in this mask should help filter out these types of contaminants.
If you're looking for a better sealing mask, I would suggest you consider any Respro mask WITH the chemical/particle filters.
The Honeycomb isn't NIOSH rated, and while the Respro isn't either, the Respro does carry the European equivalent NIOSH rating of N95. Plus, the chemical/particle filters will adsorb and remove many of the chemicals you'll be dealing with.
Many of the Respro models are specifically marketed and geared towards city pollution, and the Techno and Sportsta masks come standard with those chemical/particle filters.
If you wear the mask ALL the time while you are in Beijing, you might want to snag and extra set of filters. As a reference point, the average filter life is about 60 hours of normal use.

Honeycomb Mask with Carbon Filter
In 2008, the Honeycomb Carbon Mask from I Can Breathe! was a fixture with some world class athletes and professional support staff
during travel and preparation for the Beijing Olympic games.
This mask is a respected product that works well for many different applications. The carbon insert
in the mask filters out smog, smoke, and other pollutants. I wore it while I was cleaning my
bathtub with a very weak bleach mixture. The mask muted the extremely strong smell.
Although I could still slightly smell the bleach, it was so much
better with the mask on. We are also painting a room in our house
and the Honeycomb Carbon Mask helped me withstand the smell of the
paint. Lastly I have used this mask while working with gasoline and notice a big difference in odor than with a simple
N95 rated mask.
Not only is the mask effective, it is also comfortable. The
mask itself is soft, adjustable and washable. You simply insert the
carbon sleeve into the mask. Then if needed you pull on either sides
of the mask to make it a tighter fit. The mask comfortably fits over
you nose and mouth. In order to get the
maximum protection, you should change the carbon as soon as you can
smell the difference.
What I like about the Honeycomb Mask
It keeps me from getting those headaches after working in polluted environments
Very comfortable and easy to adjust
The carbon insert has Velcro so it sticks to the mask easily
Carbon replacement filters are inexpensive
The filtration is comparable to N95 masks with the added benefit of filtering odors
What I did not like about the Honeycomb Mask
I wish it was a little more breathable, but that is to be expected since the carbon is thick.
I give the Honeycomb Carbon Mask 5 out of 5 stars. It is
a terrific mask for those of us who are sensitive to certain particles
or chemicals! I would recommend having a few on hand just in
case because each job is different and some jobs the carbon might
absorb more than others. For traveling or odd jobs around the house this face mask is a perfect fit!
