I bought a box of flat folding N95 – 3M AURA 1870+ Surgical Masks one to two years ago from a medical supply company to carry with me as a emergency situations and for my bug out bag. I never opened them as I never had a need to. I am doing an unboxing to see if the rubber band straps are still good and to see how it folds.

I typically use a disposable N95 filter masks ( https://amzn.to/2Qh1Hu3 ) for DIY projects around the house and paint art projects. So medical surgical masks like this flat folding mask is only saved for bug out bag and emergency preparedness situations. These masks are also not as durable for DIY projects and are hard to buy due to the special nature of these masks. I would stick to the standard N95 or P95 filters based on DIY project needs.
The mask folds out to cover the face. There is a nose bridge wire and foam on the top of the nose. Like the other paper N95 masks, it does not have a rubberized face seal. Nor does it have a exhaust port valve for exhaled air flow. Its good for emergencies and for health care personal applications. I like the flat form factor but that’s the only thing going for it. I would stick to the standard N95 or P95 filters based on DIY project needs.
I made a video previously of all the different masks I use for DIY projects as well as P100 mask review.
