Medium Rare Face Mask

The staff at Receiver Coffee have been the most consistently and unrelentingly face-masked through coronatimes, and so when I noticed personable barista Joel Fitzpatrick again wearing his eyeglasses after a long time without (“I can’t see without my glasses, but I can’t see with my glasses fogged up either” was how he explained it when they first re-opened), I asked him what had changed.

He had a new mask, he explained, one that was comfortable and worked with his eyeglasses: a Medium Rare, from The Cook’s Edge, at the corner of Sydney and Pownal

I stopped by and picked one up this afternoon. $20 each, so not your cheap dime-store mask, but well-built and, as Joel-certified, it’s comfortable and works with my eyeglasses (meaning they don’t fall off and they don’t fog up). Recommended.

On your bespectacled recomendation, I picked one up yesterday. I allowed myself to build up impossible expectations (take that as a compliment, Peter).

It is just a mask, and didn't change my life, but it is indeed the best mask for limiting glasses-fogging I've worn yet.

Good recommendation, thanks.

I’ve been very happy, after almost a month of use, with how the Medium Rare has performed, especially is nonfogulating qualities. I have found that it’s important to keep the wire noise piece snug to prevent fogging, especially as the weather turns colder.
