Daniel using Totobobo Mask in Bangkok

Daniel using Totobobo mask in Bangkok, Thailand

Having been in Bangkok now for several years, I felt the need for some protection shortly after arriving. The street level pollution is quite bad particularly in the city center with the traffic jams and exhaust from cars and decrepit buses, motorbikes and tuk tuks in particular. I’ve noticed more Thais wearing the cheap masks since I first arrived. In this sense the Totobobo mask is a godsend. My observations are that the condensation builds quickly given the hot weather here, however, for my purposes I don’t wear the mask for extended periods (to and from work, short motorbike taxi rides or walks), but if the mask was in the form a mesh system with an insertable filter, that would be worth looking into for future versions. Also the straps are a sore point, I find they snap in my experience and I end up retying them. But all in all, I really can’t complain as my lungs are most grateful. Big thanks to Carrie for being a great supplier!
