With the haze in Singapore turning bad, the perfect mask depends on the fit to each individuals face as much as the N95 compliance. I test several masks to see which is the most effective.

We have started using our Totobobo masks, and changed the filters for the first time after 7 days of usage in Malaysia, plagued by the haze coming from Indonesia. So far we are satisfied, it works well and the filters are getting gray as expected!

Totobobo is an popular respirator within local leisure cycling communities – because Francis is a green commuter himself, using his bicycles whenever he can and promoting safety through road/infrastructure design. And safety through design was really the theme behind the Totobobo, although he has not said it before openly about the concept of his Totobobo respirator.I’ve bought my first Totobobo way back in June 2011, when the haze that year was still around the June period. I bought my second set in Q1 2014, to meant to replace the very first set, which to date in September 2015, I have yet to decommission as it could be a standby unit in case I lose the newer unit. I bought my Moldex initially in March 2014, during a short-lived haze period while I used the my second set of Totobobo.

2015-10-25 Professional review by A Cup Of Milk
Totobobo mask has a good feature where you can customize the mask (and the ear loop) by reshaping it with hot water / hair dryer. This is a very crucial feature, a mask that do not fit your face is not an effective mask at all. The rim of the mask is integrated with silver ion which is an anti-microbial agent.
Another good point it’s reusable, you just need to change the filter. When it gets dirty you can wash them.
