Do you wear a mask while riding?

I don't particularly like wearing a mask while riding. I haven't been wearing a mask but I think I'll start wearing one. I see more and more cyclists on and off the trail wearing masks.

I'm unhappy with the homemade ones and the 'paper-ish' ones don't last. I don't like the restriction yet I want a mask that fits tightly. If you wear a mask and it was commercially purchased what brand or make was your mask? Are you satisfied with your mask? If you've tried wearing multiple styles and makes of masks which ones do you recommend and which ones are to be avoided and why?

Thanks for any input.

I really like the cloth mask made by Maloja, a European cycling wear company.  I believe it was recently featured in Adventure Cyclist magazine.  By far the nicest, most comfortable mask I've worn. It apparently has some anti-viral/microbial treatment in the cloth, not to prevent COVID or anything like that, but to minimize how often you should wash it. 

It has a good retention system...better than most, so it's easy to slide off your nose/mouth if you don't need and and then pull it up when necessary.  I have it with me at all times while on the bike, including on remote dirt trails in the Sierras as often there is insufficient space for the 6' rule unless you want to go over a cliff or something.
