I love my Tom Bihn masks--the neck lanyard is genius, and the flannel one is the one I wear for walks outside. With the easy-on-and-off neck lanyard, it's simple to slip the mask up whenever I see someone coming my way! And it's so soft and warm when the weather outside is chilly. It's a great company generally--they donate a lot to charities, including making and donating tens of thousands of masks for first responders early on in the pandemic when they were in short supply. They manufacture all their stuff in Seattle, and their workers are paid a living wage with good benefits. Are their products cheap? No, but I'm willing to pay to support a company committed to being a good citizen. Recently Seattle parks had a problem with beavers cutting down trees and they wanted to 're-home' them to the countryside where they would have room to make their lodges. So they asked Tom Bihn to design a 'beaver trap' out of ballistic nylon that would safely contain the beavers for their trip out of Seattle, and be reusable. Happy ending for beavers and for park-lovers!
