Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SoccerDadOf22 Good fit; does what I expected it to do...
I have been doing a considerable amount of grinding, welding and painting steel assemblies. I had tried using basic paper filter masks, but they really didn't help keep out the particulates from grinding and did absolutely nothing to protect me from the solvents/VOCs from the paint. But then again, I didn't expect them to do anything - I usually paint outdoors. However, because of a very rainy spring, I found myself painting in less than ideal conditions and gave this respirator a try. In hindsight, really wish I started using something like this ages ago. Gone is the black mucus from the grinding particulates as is the fear of wondering what VOCs I'm inhaling. Fit is exceptional, resistance (ie, how hard it is to breath in) is minimal, and overall weight is far less than expected. What would elevate this to five stars? Lower price, longer cartridge life, and make the adjustment straps easier to use. (They work well, but mine seem to tangle/jam easily...not a big deal, but not having to resolve this annoyance would be beneficial).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by oldmech40 good value for the purchase price.
most of the respirators were much more expensive and their quality was no better.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kepali Worked great for adding attic insulation
In the past, I've used the cheap disposable paper masks while installing attic insulation and I still seemed to be breathing in too much fiberglass particles. Ths time I invested in this much higher quality mask/filter and it's worlds different for the better. No fiberglass what so ever seems to be gettng through. I also used some powerful bleach based mold cleaner to spot treat some mildew and couldn't smell a thng. The filters are replaceable too so I hope have and use this for years to come. Great investment.

Respirator was easy to wear, great protection from the dust stirred up from grinding and carving antlers in the art studio.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tracycustomer Been using for years
Been using these for years and have several around in various work areas at a time. Only issue is the head cap and neck bands that affix the mask to your face become brittle over time so band replacements would be useful or else you wind up buying a new mask rather than a filter. I get a lot of exposure to dust (particulates) and chemical fumes and this works for both. I trust my lungs to this so it's an important product for me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BoobyBear It really works.
I suffer from chronic bronchitis, and I was concerned that putting the impedance of a mask on top of breathing problem was going to make it impossible for me to get enough air into my lungs. I was wrong; I can breath comfortably with the mask on. Plus, at the end of the day, I do no have dust and dirt in my nasal passages. I really does the job.
