Q. I feel the ear loops are pulling on my ear. Why? Is this normal?
A. One of the reasons for LA Linen Mask high effectiveness is the soft seal it forms on the face. This is party achieved by pulling the mask tight on the face while putting about 0.1 lbs of pressure on the ear loops. Some may even feel like the ear is bending, because of the thickness of the loops. Most respirators and masks use a thin elastic as ear loops, which would fall behind the ear, but makes it extremely uncomfortable and painful after a few minutes. Even though you may feel some pulling on the ear, our soft ear loops eliminate any pain, and still forms a tight seal on the face.
