Travel healthier and happier. 


You think you're on an airplane? What if we told you it's actually a petri dish with wings...

So you are ready to go on that dream vacation, bags packed, sunshine waiting for you, surfboards in tow … and then you heard it. 

The hacking, spluttering, quite frankly disgusting coughing and sneezing behind you as scenes from contagion start running through your mind.  And you, you had to sit there for 8 agonizing hours breathing in the mucus-y, recycled airplane air knowing your holiday was about to be ruined …

Just so you know, we've totally been there!  That's why we created The Barrier Method.  A science backed, fun, and totally stylish way to travel to your destination. 

Completely germ free!

The dust will be kicked up.

Arrive to the festival looking and feeling rad.

Traveler Experiences

Traveled 21,000 miles this year and didn't get sick thanks to @thebarriermethod


My Neckie arrived today. Love it. And just in time. My 95 yr old aunt is failing health and I may be flying back to Chicago fairly soon. So glad I have your barrier scarves to help me stay healthy...In the plane and also in the hospitals or nursing homes.

Meet The Team

Solving a problem we've been having for years. We finally found a solution that works.

Improving the Travel Experience

Danielle Travis, 32 years old from Maui, Hawaii founded The Barrier Method in 2016 had a huge frustration getting sick when she traveled to the mainland to compete in polo tournaments.

She loved traveling, but did not enjoy getting sick. After a couple days after arriving at her destination, she would always get a sinus infection making her days miserable, while still having to compete! It totally hindered her performance.

Instead of focusing on the game, she had to think about going to the doctor, get meds, and pay out of pocket on top of her already expensive trip.

She was definitely sick of it. And sick days no more.

Designed in Hawaii. Made in Honolulu and Sunny California.

Wearing this mask puts more focus on your breath which actually puts you in a state of relaxation pretty quickly when you get to your seat.
