You've got questions. We've got answers. Have a question not covered in this guide? Email us. Please check out this guide first, though. We are a small team and receive a high volume of inquiries.
WILL YOUR FACE SHIELD FIT ME?
Yes. It comes with a stretchy, silicone strap with eight eyelets. This means that you can adjust it to your head and preferred tightness. It will also fit children.
WHAT IS IT MADE FROM?
It has three components: a medical-grade silicone strap, a medical-grade polypropylene headband, and clear PET visors.
DO YOU HAVE TO ASSEMBLE IT?
Minor assembly is required, but very easy. You can read the instructions here.
WHAT COMES WITH ONE ORDER?
With the smallest order, you get two headbands, two straps, and four visors. This is ideal for one person who wants two complete sets or if you want to give one to a friend.
We also offer larger bulk orders right on this site, ideal for small businesses or big families. You can purchase the Casco Shield™ in packs of 20, 40, or 120, keeping in mind that you get two visors per headband component.
WILL THE VISOR FOG UP?
The visors are non-fogging.
WHAT MAKES YOURS BETTER?
Our face shield is 100% made in Maine in our ISO 13485 certified factory. The headband and strap are sanitization-safe, meaning that you can clean them with bleach (the visor is safe for cleaning but will not withstand routine bleach cleaning). The Casco Shield™ you see on our website is the product of five design iterations and several rounds of customer feedback.
We are the manufacturer, product designer, and fulfillment center, meaning that you're getting amazing quality at great prices. In addition to making shields and scuba gear, our factory manufactures medical device components for large companies around the world.
We started making face shields at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic to help our community in Maine. Today, we're pleased to offer fast shipping around the country and have helped thousands of businesses reopen and protect their employees.
CAN I ORDER WHOLESALE?
In addition to the bulk quantities we offer on our website (discounted packs of 20, 40, and 120 shields), we also offer larger wholesale opportunities. If you're interested in more than 120 units, please fill out our wholesale form and we'll be in touch shortly.
WHAT SIZE SCUBA MOUTHPIECE IS BEST?
We offer three sizes: long bite, standard, and kids. The long bite is better for divers with a larger mouth, especially men. The standard size is ideal for adult divers with medium or smaller mouths, especially women. The kids mouthpiece is great for young divers.
WHAT SETS YOUR DIVE PRODUCTS APART?
Our scuba mouthpieces have been a dive shop favorite for almost 20 years. Unlike cheaper quality products, they're made from 100% medical-grade silicone and designed to remain flexible even in cold waters. Dive shops around the world source their gear from us because it's high quality but available at factory-direct prices.
CAN I BUY INDIVIDUAL UNITS?
We do not currently offer individual scuba products. Our main focus is catering to our global community of dive shops.
WHAT ARE EXERTIES™?
ExerTies™ are sustainable rubber bands. They were initially invented as a regulation-friendly way to hold sleeves during a sports game, such as soccer or volley ball. Today, ExerTies™ are a favorite among athletes and the all-purpose silicone straps that you can't do without. Our customers use them to keep bags of frozen veggies closed, organize office supplies, hold their keys, and so much more.
WHAT SIZE CASCO CUP™ SHOULD I CHOOSE?
This can be a tough question for people who have never tried a menstrual cup before. We suggest that you check our our menstrual cup guide, which goes over a lot of newbie questions. It also has a section on choosing your size.
HOW IS CASCO CUP DIFFERENT?
The Casco Cup™ was designed by a woman and is produced in our FDA-registered facility in Maine. Not only does it offer up to 12 hours of leak-resistant period protection, but it's great for sports, sleeping, and spending the day NOT worried about your period. The Casco Cup™ comes with the Aqua Case, a great storage container for your purse or medicine cabinet.
CAN I PRIVATE LABEL MY OWN CUP?
Yes, we offer wholesale Casco Cups and are pleased to work with you to private label your brand. Please email us for more information and we'll be in touch shortly.

WHAT SORTS OF DOORKNOBS DO THEY WORK WITH?
The first model we're releasing will work with round doorknobs and be available for individual and wholesale. However, we are looking to develop other models for other doorknobs (levers, push handles..) and are open to collaboration in the future. If you are looking for a specific type of doorknob cover for your organization, email us.
WHAT DOES ANTIMICROBIAL MEAN?
