As researchers continue to investigate COVID-19, there's really only one thing for sure: you better wear a face mask if we're to get out of this thing. While some masks aren't super comfortable — elastics can make your ears sore, and some materials are hard to breathe through, especially in summer heat — reusable bag company BAGGU has developed a mask that users are raving about, both in terms of comfort and fit.

The BAGGU mask, made out of lightweight but tightly woven quilter's cotton, is attached to your head via a single string that loops around the crown of your head and ties at the top of your neck, which is a lot more comfortable than the ear elastics and a lot easier to tie than other behind-the-head models. (Although, it's still a bit confusing to put on, so check out BAGGU's instructional video on its product pages before attempting.)

It also has a unique shape with adjustable nose and chin flaps. And, according to some users, they even prevent your glasses from fogging up. Check out some positive reviews on Twitter below:

The mask are sold here in sets of three for $32, and they come in an array of colors.
