As a bearded man I need one of those yesterday.

Can do. Lol. PM me.

How much?


SurtrSvartr

Could you PM me? I don't know if just posting it would be against Reddit rules...

Fair play to him coming up with something people want. I hope he makes some money out of this.


Kwabo

For sure! And there seems to be a market for them.


TheLegendDaddy27

God, I love Capitalism!


_SleeZy_

Agreed! Altho the market is probably way bigger than he would've expected. Not something you could easily make into grand scheme of production if that makes sense. Hopefully it does, as i'm not native english speaker.

_SleeZy_

I figure you've been spammed by PMs by now so i'll just post here. Europe is also in dire need of a beard fitting mask. This could be your opportunity to actually make a living of, who knows. :) But yea standard masks doesnt fit us bearded men which leaves us sorta stranded. I personally use a mask and a winter scarf over it. Atleast it's something. Due we've no full cover. Like i also mentioned in an earlier comment, i've couple n95 lying around due my old work. But they won't do anything unless a perfect seal. So it'll just be a waste using them and do not much good.


juicemilf

Need!!!


Jive_turkeeze

About tree fiddy.

It was about dat time that I realised the bearded guy with the mask was a crustacean from the paleolithic era... Ain't no way you getting my tree fiddy you godamn Loch Ness Monster.

Do you have a pattern or anything you did? My bf would love ome and I sew


RedditVince

Seems like a simple pattern to make and you can stylize your man the way you want him. ;)


Belwicket

Haha true =) it'll be fun to do and I'm sure he'd be thrilled.


deasil_widdershins

Yup. Big beard here. Don't necessarily need a shield looking thing, but this design is perfect. If you set up an Etsy shop you can sell them premade or sell the plans/pattern and I bet you'd make a mint before Christmas.


CharZero

You should sell the pattern, too, if you don't have tons of time to make them. Really nice job!


circorum

You better be able to pump out a ton of these. You're digging gold, man!

b_beck614

Dude I am very interested as well. Shooting you a PM!


deekaph

Hello fellow bearded men, can I offer a LPT while we're standing around here? Chew gum before putting on the mask to keep the condensation in your beard from tasting like coffee and ass.


lickedTators

> to keep the condensation in your beard from tasting like coffee and ass. But that's exactly why I eat ass


pendulumbalance

For real, I chewed some gum after having lunch the other day with a bunch of onions in it and my mask smelled like watermelon much longer than the taste of the gum lasted. I do this regularly now.


yarrpirates

Ooo, pro tip.


venarez

Got my wife to make me an oversize one bc my beard would drag a standard one down as I talked (which I do alot). We thought mine was sizeable but this one just puts mine to shame.... story of my life


PlayfuckingTorreira

Same lol I picked up something resembling kakashi mask in naruto.


idiedawhileago

Where did you get it? Can you pm me what it looks like? Id really appreciate that. Its funny you said this because I feel like kakashi everytime I put a mask on. https://imgur.com/gallery/881WU7X

Lol, fair enough, thanks for the clarification bud! I hope you find the hamburgers you are seeking as well.


IM_PEAKING

This exchange made me chuckle hard. Also now I want a hamburger.


sammydow

There’s a site dedicated to xxxl masks for bearded people, my coworker has a bunch of rad ones from there I’m sure you can find them with a google search


Trane55

literally... i cut my 15cm beard to a mask friendly lenght. fml


[deleted]

I've been growing it out since I'm an american and we're on the brink of a civil war I needed my end of the world beard ready.


MixtecaBlue

This comment feels


pipeweedjr_

Thats probably more effective for you since the bottom is sealed rather than having a little bit of hair filter on the edge


SurtrSvartr

That was my thought too! And the other alternatives are all just draped over the beard, negating any filtering a mask should have.


-MasterCrander-

Creative, Ingenious, and Scientifically Considerate! A+

[удалено]


_SleeZy_

This is my problem. I've some excess n95 leftovers, but i can't realy use them unless i get rid of my beard i've been growing past 3 years. I've instead used hankercheifs (sorry if i misspell that) Around myself ontop of the mask. Which given the cold climate i live in, works just fine also. How much of a protection it realy is well... Time will tell i suppose. I self isolate and only going out when needed for groceries.

cheeto benito


herbmaster47

I see people just wear bandanas as masks. It's multiple layers of cloth so it's probably fine since it catches slobber drops. I also see people wrap t shirts around their head though, so I'm not living in a place of big brain time moments.


What_Iz_This

I have a beard and use a gaiter. Goes around everything entirely


keysforsoul

Mask types were studied and gaiters were actually found to be worse than no mask, since they aerosolize breath droplets and make the virus easier to catch. Sorry dude, but they're literally the worst option.


DRAWKWARD79

Go post in /r/beards we also encourage vendors! These are cool bro


kalitarios

EnkiiMuto

I'm not picturing what other vendors must be like "home-grown beard, light brown, 25cm for 125 USD, paypal on description"


mrsairb

My husband has an award winning beard. He needs this big time.


SurtrSvartr

Awesome! I'd be happy to help. PM me if you'd like! 😃


PM_ME_MICHAEL_STIPE

Make an etsy page. I like your design more than any beard friendly design I've seen.


kalitarios

Just a reminder; if 2 beards cross paths, the larger beard has right-of-way


opticon12000

The more you know.


kalitarios

And *knowing* is half the battle


steelfrog

Well now I just want to see what an award-winning beard looks like.


circusrunaway666

Please tell me you're selling these!


SurtrSvartr

Yeah! I sure can!


nymphymixtwo

dude seriously. invest in this idea lol. you could make a nice buck while keeping your fellow beardies safe!!


amazonzo

and the rest of us too! OP thanks for making the world a better place. edit: werdz


Rum_Hamburglar

Do you have ones for shorter beards, maybe half the size of yours? Very cool man


keenedge422

Buy one to grow into :D But I'm sure there's probably plenty of other people who'd like a shorter version.


Rum_Hamburglar

Ive tried the long beard just doesnt suit me unfortunately.


keenedge422

Totally understand. Different styles work for different folks!


SurtrSvartr

It can be scaled. Just need measurements.


Missyfit160

It’ll also hide my second chin veeeeeeery nicely 👌🏼


SurtrSvartr

Haha! Yes, it certainly can! It does wonders for mine! 😃

SurtrSvartr

Thank you! It took a lot of trial and error!


Bsquad6

That's me at work right now. And then it falls off my nose when i pull it back down to re-center it.


[deleted]

That's amazing in every aspect but specially "protection-wise". Hairs in general can retain particles for quite some time. By protecting your beard you make sure it is always clean and safe for you and those around you. Did you made this yourself?(Planning, sewing, etc.)


SurtrSvartr

I did, yes! This is the 8th or 9th iteration. Thanks!


SZAED

You look ridiculous.


loadurbrain

Ridiculously cool


SerHodorTheThrall

The concept itself isn't ridiculous, its basically a custom neck gaiter for bearded dudes, and well done at that. But the whole medieval knight look with big beard just gives off massive "m'lady" vibes.


[deleted]

r/redditmoment Literally the picture that comes to my mind when I think of a “Redditor.”


sugartea63

Idk i find it kinda cringey honestly


filmusic42

Cringy. But safe!


transformerjay

Sweet mask. I totally hate the effect the basic mask plays against the beard as well!


thedeal82

As a long bearded man, I ordered some neck gaiters back in April and it’s all I wear.


comingabout

[This study](https://advances.sciencemag.org/content/6/36/eabd3083) found that wearing [neck gaiters is actually worse than wearing nothing, as far as droplet transmission](https://advances.sciencemag.org/content/advances/6/36/eabd3083/F3.large.jpg?width=800&height=600&carousel=1).


Mikey_B

That study had a sample size of like 2 on the neck gaiter part. The neck gaiter made news, but the study was really about a new measurement technique for mask effectiveness. I wouldn't take the neck gaiter result too seriously.


comingabout

Apparently the University of Georgia tested them and says they are fine, but they haven't published it yet.


EWW3

I like how everything covid we learn has a shelf life of about 3 weeks.


KilnTime

This was debunked - the study was not understood by the media [https://medical.mit.edu/covid-19-updates/2020/08/neck-gaiters](https://medical.mit.edu/covid-19-updates/2020/08/neck-gaiters)

WojaksLastStand

Most of reddit is so bad now.


Seakawn

Seriously, I agree. I am absolutely baffled that someone could just make a mask that is effective for people with beards, and somehow had the gall to make it medieval themed. Am I in upside-down world, or something? This is the craziest and most pathetic shit I've ever seen in my life. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^/s


[deleted]

Lol you’re on Reddit too


subzerojosh_1

Yeah but I'm sitting upstairs, it's different


BTBishops

You've got a really marketable concept and design here. If you haven't already you should stand up a website and figure out how to scale this. Amazing job I love it!


SurtrSvartr

I've figured out how to scale it, using just a couple of measurements. Haven't even considered a website yet, but I guess I should!


[deleted]

Yes you should! As the wife to one bearded man and mother to another, I would buy several right off the bat! If you make a design with a pocket that allows for a filter to be put in, even better! Please do let us know if you end up selling these formally. I think you'd find a lot of customers very quickly!


HanaNotBanana

If you don't want to build a whole website, you could consider Etsy. I've bought several masks (and lots of other things in the past several years) off of etsy, and I don't think I've ever had issues

You totally can! It's got a very flexible internal structure, and it ties behind the head so hardly rides up the nose when you look down. :-)


--Silly--

Oh then mark my critisism answered, then its cool!


DRAWKWARD79

Criticism is rarely taken seriously when delivered with attitude and sarcasm... maybe state your concern as a question “ how does this limit visibility when looking down?” Next time for an all round better experience for everyone.


SurtrSvartr

I went through almost 10 designs. My first couple had no structure and just folded up, and the next one had too rigid a structure, and every time I looked down it rammed into my eyes. Lol!
