A wet mask is harder to breathe through, is less efficient at filtering, and vents more around the edges of the mask.- Keep a spare mask to replace one that becomes wet. - If you need to wear a scarf, or ski mask wear it over your mask. They are usually made of loosely knit fabrics not suitable as masks.- If you wear glasses, find a mask that fits closely over your nose or has a nose wire to help reduce fogging. Consider using an antifogging spray that is made for eyeglasses. ... See MoreSee Less
