Mission, an athletic gear company co-founded by Serena Williams, was launched in 2009 to maximize athlete performance and recovery with its thermoregulating product. But now as the world faces a health crisis making face mask a needed safety accessory, Mission is offering entirely different benefits than it originally intended.
For instance, its popular cooling neck gaiters were made for consumers to stay active longer as it can serve as protection against wind, dust and debris. Now, it functions as the perfect face mask to stop the spread of COVID-19. And there are extra benefits that medical masks or basic cloth masks doesn’t offer, such as its UPF 50 protection from the sun feature.
In addition, Mission gaiters are multifunctional and can shift into a neck or face mask, headband, helmet liner, hood, headwrap, bandana and more. Plus, Mission is known for its cooling technology, which when activated with water, cools to 30 degrees below average body temperature in under 30 seconds to help wearers stay cool for up to two hours. All you have to do is wet the material, wring it out and snap it three times to activate.
