URSA Maskies

Strain Relief for your Ears.

Our Soft, Light, Stretchy fabric sits comfortably around the back of the head and holds the ear loops together without placing any strain on the back of your ears.

By creating space around the ears Maskies reduce ear strain when wearing masks all day at work or when wearing masks with headphones & radio earpieces.

Maskies are adjustable and can help to tighten up loose fitting masks so they stay more securely in place. Utilising a strong low profile gripper which is delicate to the touch.

Maskies also allow you to hang your mask loosely around your neck without it touching your skin. This means you can take a quick drink before bringing the mask safely back up into position touching only the neck loops.

The Maskie can keep your face mask secure in multiple ways – worn over your ears, under your ears over even stretched over the top of your head.

Available in Black.

Comfortable fit all day.

The Maskie saved my ears today as had to wear a mask for 7 hours continuously and have not had sore ears which would normally be the case without the wonderful Maskie. It’s the saviour for ones ears. Makes wearing a mask very comfortable without comprise.

You can barely even feel that it’s there!

After two weeks of COVID lifestyle onset and I thought – I need to call Simon Bysshe. URSA’s fabric is perfectly wearable for hours on talents, why not on crew’s necks. It’s simply perfect, both over and below the ears.

It’s brilliant! It’s such a simple concept but it really does the trick. Can’t wait to test it on set soon, we’ve been shooting lately and definitely felt sore behind the ears. This will definitely help.

I tried the Maskie as all the face masks I was using pulled on my ears and made them uncomfortable to wear. Using the Maskie means that my face masks all fit, I can keep it around my neck which is convenient when shopping and its easier to put my mask on as I wear glasses and I don’t have to get tangled up with them around my ears. A simple solution for making it easier to use a face mask!

Got to try the maskie out this week for the first time we had an interview scene for a cop show, 30 page scene 40 min takes filmed over two days. Hands down the most comfortable mask accessory I’ve used. Really helped to keep the pressure off the top off my ears but still pulled the mask around my face making it feel more secure and give me the best protection it can offer.
