Unlike other fabric masks, the kids’ masks from Hiro and Jack have five layers. The innermost and outer layers are cotton, with two additional water resistant layers on top of another N95 layer. These layers make this reusable mask akin to a N95 one – meaning you don’t have to insert any more filters for the same level of protection.

Kids aged three to seven years old will benefit from the size XS masks, while parents can get the M or L sized ones. The masks are dust-proof, protect against UV rays and last for an unlimited number of washes, justifying the price point of over $40
