Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Peter Average deal; excellent product.
I needed a mask for working with stains and stripper chemicals. Although the half masks are fine for protecting your respiratory system, my eyes were still burning from time to time and the biggest problem was the possibility of splashing the chemicals into my eyes. Goggles and safety glasses combined with the half mask didn't stop my eyes from burning and tend to fog up.
This mask is top notch. It doesn't fog. You have a full viewing area. The straps and fitting is designed in a way that it is easy to take on and off and fits quite comfortably for hours of wear. I also purchased a 3m mask equivalent and although cheaper it didn't fit very well on your chin which made it uncomfortable and awkward to wear so I returned it and kept this one.
The various filters for tasks are quite nice and change out easily as well. Also the whole mask is washable so I just throw it in a bucket of hot soapy water for 5 min and let it air dry.
The downside to this mask is the price. It is a little steep considering you can get a half mask for about 30 bucks and simply adding the face shield to this with better fitting straps raises the price 130 dollars? Seems kinda steep to me. But I guess you get what you pay for.
I also searched around on multiple websites and unfortunately the market price seems to be the same ... about 160 bucks.
So for me 5 stars on the quality and 3 stars on the price but if you can bite the bullet on the price it is definitely a great product that with its quality would probably last years.
