One of the latest trends in personal protective equipment (PPE) is face shields. While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) cautions that face shields should not be worn in place of a cloth mask, some people still opt to wear a face shield along with a mask for more coverage (and potentially more protection). There are plenty of places to buy face shields online, from Amazon to Etsy.
Whether you’re looking for the most comfortable headband face shield or a stylish face shield (like the custom designed ones from Vistaprint), we’ve rounded up 10 of the most popular face shields you can buy right now based on reviews and ratings.

2. Vistaprint Face Shield
Vistaprint makes some of our experts’ favorite face masks but the online printing retailer also makes face shields. Roomy enough that you can wear glasses underneath and made of durable plastic, the shields have a 4.7-star rating for being easy to wear and adjust. Note: The minimum purchase is 10 face shields so if you’re looking for a single mask, you’ll want to look elsewhere.

3. Zazzle Face Shield
Yes, custom face shields exist and yes, they’re every bit as fun (and functional!) as you’d imagine. Zazzle has hundreds of face shield designs to choose from (including stars, flowers, animal faces, space helmets, monograms, and more) and shoppers have given them five stars for being durable and lightweight—i.e. you can comfortably wear your shield all day long without any pain or discomfort.
4. Gemelli Hat Face Shield
Maybe you don’t find face shields comfortable. Or maybe you don’t find them stylish. Whichever your problem is, this hat/face shield combo is the solution. Available in black, pink, and white, the plastic shield attaches directly to the baseball cap and can be easily removed if you want to wear the hat on its own. It’s perfect for anyone who wants to wear their face shield outdoors.
