Finding a great summertime mask can be tricky. You want one that’ll allow you to breathe easy (especially in a heat wave), protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays and, of course, keep you safe.

We found one that does all that and more. Available in nine fun prints, the Moyabo Face Mask features UV blocking technology and handy earloops. The silky fabric wicks away moisture to keep you cool, and it’s breathable, lightweight and stretchy for ultimate comfort. Plus, it’s only $13 on Amazon.

Here’s what shoppers have to say about this fun, convenient gaiter:

Protects from the sun

“Easier to speak and be understood at work, plus it covers my neck. So when outside, I know I won’t get sunburnt on the back of my neck and décolletage. I should have bought 12 of them because several coworkers want the same!,” writes a happy reviewer. “Very comfortable on the face (doesn't itch like a surgical mask) and feels nice on the ears. I will probably buy more if masks continue to be required.”

Another reviewer agrees: “Way more comfortable than standard masks. I was constantly pulling the bottom of my other masks away from my chin for a moment or two because I can't stand wearing them, but this one is so much better. You don't feel like you’re re-inhaling your carbon dioxide. Mine fits so well, I don't even necessarily need to put the elastic over my ears, I can just pull it up over my nose and it stays. I plan to buy several more like this one.”

“Compared to a gaiter, I found that earloop face masks are better for running. This specific earloop face mask is perfect for running because it truly is [moisture-wicking] and gentle on the skin,” says a five-star reviewer. “Evaporation will moisten it for a moment, but it dries up almost instantly. Very satisfied with this earloop face mask. Perfect for long distance running.”

Yet another bonus? “This is the only mask I have that doesn't steam up my glasses,” writes another satisfied shopper.
