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.

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. 

Arrive at your destination feeling awesome!

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.

Haven't used in action yet but tried on as soon as package arrived. Excellent quality. Love fabric, easy care and simple to use. Have worn paper masks but this will be more comfortable, breathable and washable/reusable. Thanks for a great product...so timely too!

I got myself one of these masks last year for flying and went 21,000 miles without contracting anything not even a mild cold! Highly recommend them!!

Works great!!!

I have an autoimmune condition so I usually always get sick when I fly and it lasts for months. On my last two flights I used the winged mask with the nose goop...which I applied with q-tips several times during the 13 hour flights. My nose never dried out once and I didn’t get sick on either trip. My husband just had me order one for him for his upcoming trip. Another great thing about the mask is that they prevent you from touching your face, which helps prevent you from getting sick. I love all the great patterns from Angelina Hills. I’ve been telling all my friends and family about your great products! Thank you!

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.

She apprecaties your patience during this crazy time. 

Designed in Hawaii. Made in Honolulu and Sunny California.

100% NATURAL anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal agent. Extracted from the shell of a crabs! This amazing fabric is called Chitosanté. It is approved by the EPA to be safe for the environment as well as safe for the consumer. It is bio-degradable and sustainable.

Great for wearing while on a hiking adventure!

How to wash: Either hand wash cold with light detergent, or on gentle cycle. Hang to dry in the shade. Washing it will not lessen its anti-bacterial or UPF 50 properties. 

Anti-Anxiety Benefits

Preparing for a trip is both exciting and can be stressful. The fear of getting sick on a flight adds to this stress. Our product can help calm those nerves during your next flight without medication or a paper bag.

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.

Design Patented!

The outer layers are designed to attach to the inner layer or face liner. Our signature masks come sewn to the outer layer of your choice.

The front of the outer layer has a unique patent pending cinch to create shape underneath your eyes. Just so you don't look like a bandit.

We value keeping our masks made here. It was born and raised on the island of Maui. We are now located in Honolulu.  We hire local seamstresses to help us with new creations and smaller batches while our manufacturer in California makes larger quantities for us.
