No, the nose strip was just a piece of plastic that didn't keep any shape, so I asked them for refund. It looks that the product is no longer available on their website.
However, I purchased from them level 2 mask (tie on) three month ago and those were good quality, aluminum strip, larger than a regular face mask and good seal with the tie-on design.

I've just checked their website and found other models as well (under $3/pc), but all are small size:

No, they do not last. Only 24 hours after opening the packaging. They also state that this product is cleared for sale only in EU and Israel.

I also wanted to buy some Triomed masks from a Rexall pharmacy, but after reading some reviews on well.ca website, I gave up the idea. Not exactly what I am looking for.

The order email says they'll be delivered on 22 Sept, but no tracking info. When I called them, they told me it's out of stock till 31 December and delivery will be next January 7th! Did anyone else order - what happened?

It's got an insanely stiff long nose wire (the best out of all the cheap disposable masks I bought) and it holds. There's no smell out of the box. It's very comfortable, light, breathable. The earloops don't hurt my ears during long use.
The minus I see is that the masks don't come in a plastic bag inside the box.
Is it a level 3 mask? I don't know, there's no test to prove I can perform. But PRIMED is a legit company who has a manufacturing in China.

There is no reason for a separate plastic bag (or bags) for the masks. Medical grade masks (such as Primed, Medicom, etc.) are designed to be used in hospital environment where they are grab-and-go from a hallway dispenser.

Thanks for your review ! I think I'll go ahead and purchase :)

Not quite sure about the packaging on the inside but I have purchased masks (from Medicom and other western brands) pre covid that also came without packaging inside the box. So I think this is done intentionally by the manufacturer. Although with covid around nowadays, it would be nice to see that extra protection from contaminants.

What colour are the Primed masks you (or anyone else) received? I got my pack today but the masks are white as opposed to the blue the product images show

I see a week ago someone posted a pic of theirs which were light blue
