Below you can see a list of independent test reports from world-renowned laboratories and test centres.
Viral Filtration Efficiency (VFE) Test Report
The VFE test was performed by the world-renowned Nelson Laboratories (U.S.A.) to determine the filtration efficiency of the RESPILON nanofibre filter specifically against viruses. 99.9% filtration was confirmed as a result.
Bacterial Filtration Efficiency (BFE) Test Report
The BFE test was performed by the world-renowned Nelson Laboratories (U.S.A.) to determine the filtration efficiency of the RESPILON nanofibre filter specifically against bacteria. 99.9% filtration was confirmed as a result.
We declare that the original R-shield/R-shield Light snood contains a sewed-in RESPILON® nanofiber membrane in the area of a person’s nose and mouth which blocks out 99.9 % of viruses and bacteria. The R-shield is not medical equipment, nor personal protective equipment (a respirator).

The R-Shield offers stealthy and fashionable protection for active people. It looks like a normal light accessory sitting around your neck, ready to be pulled up when entering polluted or crowded areas, or avoiding dust, allergies and pollen.
Launched in 2018 following a successful Kickstarter campaign, the R-Shield incorporates a nanofibre membrane with several million nano-pores per centimetre. The membrane blocks car fumes, pollen,viruses, bacteria, dust and mites whilst allowing oxygen to freely flow through.
RESPILON® nanofibre is so thin and light, a single gram of it is enough to create a string long enough to wrap around the entire Earth, and 10 grams would stretch a line to the Moon 385,000km away.
The snood is specifically designed to help ensure an intake of breath goes through the filter and not via errant air flows. An adjustable cord and padded nose clip ensure a good seal can be achieved for any face shape. Everything from the bridge of the nose downwards is covered by the protective mesh filter with a micro-pore size of 0.01µm. The R-Shield is recommended to be used for 50 washing cycles which means it offers a long-term protective solution. The R-Shield is not classed as PPE.
The R-Shield is available as an all-weather snood for year-round use or an ultra-lightweight "Light" summer/sports version with outstanding heat-release and moisture wicking properties. The R-Shield Light will help you stay cool and comfortable during intense activity.
Independent testing has found that normal polyester and cotton scarves and snoods block around 1%-3% of fine particulates. The R-Shield nano filter is proven to block 99.9% of fine particles (PM1.0 & viruses). Testing has been completed by Nelson Laboratories (USA), EMPA Laboratories (Switzerland) and VUT (Czech Republic).
Dimensions When Laid Flat:
R-Shield Kids is suitable for 5yrs to 40kg, larger children should opt for the adults R-Shield. Not suitable for under 5yrs, parental supervision required at all times.
The R-Shield is recommended to be used for 50 washing cycles before being replaced. To ensure the R-Shield stays in good working condition, either use a delicate 30'C cycle on your washing machine or hand wash it in a bowl of soapy water that is below 30'C, then leave somewhere warm to dry. The filter is part of the garment and does not need changing.
Please note that if the seal on the R-Shield box is opened, we are unable to accept returns due to the nature of the product.
