VIRUS OUT / protection, mask, more closely fit, and sterilize


VIRUS OUT is a mask with geometric shape-folding and comes in a sterilization pouch. Its design allows users to properly store the temporarily removed mask in a correct way, which is conducive to increase the life of the mask. It makes use of the structure of the crease so that the sides of the mask can be completely sealed and fit the face shape more closely, increasing greatly its protection. Besides, users can use compression storage with only two fingers, to reduce touching the front and back of the mask. VIRUS OUT uses a heating device to disinfect the mask and the UV-C light purifies the mask by effectively killing the coronavirus.
