Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CHM Seems to work well
Haven't used it much yet but did tackle a nasty dusty project the other day and breathing was much easier. Didn't feel as tired and gross afterwards either.

I bought this to use while unloading livestock feed to storage bins, loading hay, cleaning out dusty dirt-floor barns and shoveling chicken manure. I got it six months ago, and it has stood up to almost daily usage.
I did buy extra packs of pre-filters, change them often, and feel this has significantly extended the life of my particulate filter. This respirator is superb quality, has fantastic fit, is even comfortable (as comfortable as a respirator can be in a 100ºF barn), and is very easy to breathe through with zero restriction. No more blowing dirt out of my nose for hours after working in the barn, and I've noticed my frequency of sinusitis has decreased very notably. I now keep my Sundstrom in the barn in a sealed ziploc bag (in a feed bin) so I don't forget to bring it out with me.
I called Sundstrom USA with a few questions about fit, which extra filters I might want to order, etc... and their phone customer support is excellent. The lady mentioned that to extend life on any of the vapor/gas/fume canisters, it is helpful to remove them from the mask, seal the can tightly in a heavy-duty ziploc freezer bag (squeezing out excess air) when not actively being used. If not, the canister will continue to try to filter air as long as air is available, and exhaust itself fairly quickly. The particulate filter doesn't have to be sealed between uses, but I to it anyhow to keep it clean and handy in a dusty storage environment.
This product might be more expensive than the cheaply made disposable models on the market, but if your lungs are important to you, and you need a quality piece of equipment that will work well for you day in and day out, this is the one to buy. HD really needs to put a disclaimer that buying the mask alone, it does NOT come with filters included. The best value is the Pro Pack - you get a half-mask with your filters - and get plenty of pre-filters while you're at it.
So far as quality for money spent, this is one of my favorite purchases of 2014. Worth every penny.

I use it while airbrushing. The paint particles are very small then. And my nose is still clean after a painting session. Good product

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OliverClothesoff1 Like the way the mask is easy to go from on and off w/ the straps.
Good product, uses with all projects and enjoy the simplicity of the mask and yet benefit the safety protection.
