Dropgard

Dropgard’s patent-pending design offers unmatched sport mask performance and comfort. Many masks claim to be breathable but Dropgard actually is. How? The key is a separate compartment for nose breathability. The lighter mesh nose compartment increases airflow while the main compartment blocks droplets.

It is important to remember that Dropgard is a Source Control sport mask and not a self-protection sport mask. In other words, Dropgard helps limit the expulsion of respiratory droplets, but it does not necessarily filter all of the air we breath. For that reason, all players should be wearing a mask when you wear Dropgard. When we play together and wear Dropgard together, we can all breathe freely and play safely.

We conducted a test similar to one that was done at Florida Atlantic University using a mannequin, a fogging machine, and a hand pump to simulate a cough. The test showed the effectiveness of Dropgard Athletica in keeping droplets from expelling due to its tight seal around the face. Given that a mannequin is made of rigid plastic rather than malleable skin, Dropgard Athletica would likely expel even fewer droplets than was demonstrated in the test.
