Seems like I've been on a search lately for the perfect mask - out of 7 different masks, this is the only one I am reordering. The texture is great, not irritating at all and it fits both me and my husband just right and the best nose wire I have seen. How the filter is placed (becomes the later against your face) is unique but I liked it because you can change the filter instead of washing the mask daily when you forget to remove lip gloss before putting it on! It would be hands down perfect if the sides that keep the mask in place came just a little bit more to the center, especially towards the top. The upper corner of the filter tend to pop out. That's the only flaw and hopefully something that can be corrected. Also I didn't find it to be water repellent - I did not check it before washing it but washed it by hand & without fabric softener.
