Why We Built The Backcountry Face Mask

Our Backcountry Face Mask is ready to rise to your occasion. We designed it without ear loops to better customize the fit to your head. Tie loops allow a highly adjustable, comfortable alternative to most masks, and the double-layer slides in filters.

  • Protect yourself and others with this simple face accessory
  • Double-layer fabric leaves room to add a filter
  • 13in length tie and wire at nose provide an adjustable fit
  • Includes two PM2.5 activated carbon filters
  • Conveniently fits over an N95 cover
  • Locally made right here in Utah

Hard to get on

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Size Bought: standard

I really find these masks hard to get on and adjust. I was hoping the behind the head strap design would make the mask stay in place better for active times. But the reality is that I find the adjustment so tedious that the mask never seems to fit well.

Excellent Mask

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I am a physician by trade and wear masks for 12+ hr a day. I was getting ulcerations behind my ears from the typical ear loop masks so i switched to this mask which i love. Soft, comfortable, and can be tied snug or loose. Initially i wasnt crazy about the elastic strap on top but i find it is nice to easily remove and replace the mask while leaving the bottom tied around my neck. Made in USA was a big plus for me as almost all paper ear loop masks are made in China.

Best Mask ever

    It covers everything and fits great, this is my favorite face mask.

    Simple & Effective

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I have four of these that are currently rotating as my ski-masks. My local resort here in Utah has intelligently made masks mandatory and these loop over the back of the head and tie behind the neck, which works much better with my helmet, goggles, and beard, than the behind-the-ear style of loops.

    The material is more breathable than some but is thick enough that I am not concerned about using it without a filter in high-output situations. If I was grocery shopping then I would use one of the filters they came with. They have held up with no major signs of wear to about a dozen washings so far.

    Functional face mask

    • Fit: True to size

    OK...let's face it--all face masks are a drag. But in the current environment they are a necessity and often mandated. So ya' gotta have 'em. Most face masks work by attaching around the ears. This winds up giving you a headache after a good bit of time, plus those with hearing aids can't use them (my wife, specifically). This face mask works with an elastic that goes over the head and then a tie behind the neck. Much more comfortable. Our ski mountain's base is at 9200 ft. and goes up to over 12,400. So the removable filter was too much blockage for adequate O2 intake. The face mask by itself is adequate. No face mask seems to work with sunglasses and this one is no exception. With goggles, you seal the top edge of the mask under the bottom edge of the goggle and you're good while you're moving. On the chair (by yourself or with one other on a quad), you can lower the mask to be sure you don't generate fog. Ya' gotta fiddle with this stuff, but that's life in the pandemic age. It works, basically. Definitely a worthwhile and comfortable mask that will deliver what you need.

    Over helmet, doubles as goggle guard

    I didn't like the design when I first bought it over the summer. I prefer using a mask that hooks to the ears when just doing everyday activities. When snowboard season approached, I put this over my helmet, with the top elastic strap and the tied the bottom strap attached to the google strap clip in the back.

    It not only provides a secure fit, but when I'm done riding, the mask covers my goggles, acting like a scratch guard.

    I breathe pretty hard during a run so usually have it under my chin while riding, and then just pull it up when I get to the lift line. I carry a "normal" paper mask for when I take my helmet off.

    Great Mask!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I love the close and secure fit of this mask. The internal nose bridge makes it easy to adjust to your specific face/nose shape, the filter sleeve is a key safety feature to add in your own filter, or at least have a double layer mask as most ski resort are requiring - this a great fit over a beanie or under a helmet if you chose to take to this to the mountain. Love the cropped goat logo detail on the side as well - I get a lot of compliments on this mask since it is a stand out amongst the others!

    Nice Mask

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: OSFM

    I chose the huckleberry OSFM due to the straps. The ear straps on most mask hurt me after some time wearing them. This mask fits well and the straps are not too tight. My one issue is the fabric does tend to cling a bit when breathing but as I use this to run errands or walk the dog it is not an issue.

    Have you ever wanted to hike a 15 mile trail in the middle of a pandemic and gotten to the trail head to discover it's really crowded? Did you want to stay safe while hiking? Boy do we have the mask for you! One strap is fixed so it sits nicely around your head while the other ties to keep it in place. No worries about passing by another hiker closely and catching the Vid-19. This will help keep your worries at bay and it won't make you feel like your suffocating.

    Safely recreate!

    Great All Day Ski Mask

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: One size

    Purchased several of these, both adult and child versions for me and the kids to ski in. They fit comfortably and securely under a helmet and didnt cause any Google fogging. Skiing all day was not a problem, best mask I have used yet, I wouldnt change a thing other than to remove the big logo.

    Great fit for me.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: adult

    Most masks slide off my nose whenever I talk. This one stays secure once I figured out how tight I needed the bottom laces. I wear it with both of the filters that it comes with (overkill) and I have no problem breathing while I'm working.

    Okay, but some kinks to work out

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I saw these through an online add and was excited about the design. I really like the overall look and design of this mask with the elastic headband and then the tie-on for around the neck. Its makes getting it on/off very easy. The material is also very nice and soft on the inside of the mask. there are some areas where this mask falls short:

    -The stitching of the elastic band for around your head is on the inside part of the mask, so it rubs on my cheeks consistently. I get little sores in these locations. It would be much better if the elastic was stitched to the outer mask rather than what's against your face.
    -I also think the elastic may be a bit too small/tight and this exacerbates the rubbing issue on my cheeks. I ordered the "One Size Fits Most" and the mask portion fits well, but the elastic is just a bit too tight.
    -Despite the inner material being soft and pliable, the seam running down the middle of the mask runs right over my chin. This seam also rubs constantly for me and is irritating. If at all possible, it would be much better to have the inner fabric be all a single piece, or attempt to move that seam somehow.

    For short stints, this mask works well, but I have a job where I need to wear a mask all day and this just is not the one to complete that job.

    Sounds Ike a nice thick beard would alleviate most of those issues😉

    Good Mask

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Fits well and ties around the back of your head rather than your ears. I kept it on for 6 hours straight on a flight and felt good.

    Best mask I've found

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I wear glasses, and nearly every other mask causes them to fog. This mask has a wide nose bridge that does a good job of sealing and not fogging. I also like the elastic top head strap and the lower ties - I can quickly pull it up or drop it down without digging it out of a pocket or wondering where I put it.

    Functionally Poor... Looks Good Though

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    Mask design incorporates excess interior mask material. Said material is flimsy/baggy & does not hold its form during use.
    Result: the mask material gets drawn into your nostrils when breathing. Material also gets drawn into your mouth if you attempt using that pathway to get the fabric out of your nostrils.
    If you're on the couch with a 50 bpm heart rate, this likely won't be a problem. Pick a different mask for any other activity though. Surprised Backcountry didn't design this to be more useful for non-couch surfing activities. I purchased two of these masks... the other used by my gf. She had the same issue & gave up on it too.
    The mask does look good though.
    1 star retained for that, -4 stars for function.

    I find that using the filters that it comes with help maintain the shape and also prevents it from being pulled into my mouth/Nose. I wear one at work for 9 hours a day without any issues since I've been using the filters. Maybe my face is just the perfect shape for the design.

    Love this mask!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    So comfortable! Soft material! Love the straps that goes behind your head instead of your ears. It has a wire on the nose area so you can adjust the fit. Awesome design! Love how we can get stylish with these mask. Highly recommend!

    Love the backcountry design!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I ordered 2 of these mask. Love the backcountry design! Love the soft material. They are so comfortable to wear. Love the way it fits. Love how it has filters to put in the mask. These mask will come in handy when I’m working and when I go to business’s that require a mask. The best part is how it has straps to go behind your head instead of your ears. So much better! No more sore ears! I highly recommend!

    2nd to the worst mask I own

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: OSFM

    I got this mask from Backcountry hoping that since it was made by an outdoor company, that they would have made it in a way that was better than average for being active. Unfortunately, it is not. The picture shows a single loop at the bottom to go around the back of your neck, but mine has non-stretchy ties instead that I do not like at all. I have numerous masks with the same PM 2.5 filters, but this is the only mask in which the filter has so much room to move & slide around that it bunches up into a wad and does not stay flat. I wore it while running yesterday & every time I pulled it up over my nose & mouth, the inner fabric liner got inhaled straight into my face instead of it staying away from my airway openings (nostrils & mouth). So all in all, I am extremely disappointed in this mask. In my opinion, it is awful for active endeavors and I will only be wearing it when the other one I have with head loops is in the wash.
