Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by registrada The best half face respirator I've found
I retired with 30+ years in chemical plants/refineries. This is far and away the best half face I've ever used. It's comfortable with a very thorough seal, easy to mount and remove. I only have need for particulate use in projects around the house now, not protection against any airborne gases. I bought additional pre-filters to prolong the life of the particulate filter. This is the only half face I've ever bought; all the others were supplied by employers. But I gladly would have bought one of these long ago for use at work, rather than use all the free but inferior others in comparison.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Michu extemely satisfied - a 5 star respirator
This works extremely well! It's soft enough against my skin to form a very good barrier without having to pull the straps uncomfortably tight. In combination with their gas cartridge, it's very good against glue vapors. I'm using Barge cement, and I cannot even slightly detect the very strong Barge odor. Easy to breathe - no resistance to inhalation & exhalation; very light-weight... I'm a 65-yr-old woman with rather delicate skin, and I actually forget that I'm wearing this mask, it's so light and easy to breathe. The phone will ring, and I'll absent-mindedly answer it with the mask on, it's that easy to forget.

Our professional review towards this product would be one word, outstanding!
We are in attics, basements and areas that contain dust and fibers of every kind. Tight, claustrophobic areas are tough enough as is and this respirator is by far the least Restrictive. Restrictive breathing can make a job even more difficult. Easy on easy off and the cartridge lasts a long time as long as you take care of it and blow it out after every job. I wish I had gotten a medium/large Which I did not know when I purchased my first one.
Just bought a second one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VLBS This was a gift to our son. He specified this brand, and was happy to receive it.
Ordered online and rather than picking it up at the store we had it delivered at no cost and it arrived quickly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Best Half Mask Respirator I had so far
I have used a handful of half mask respirators over the years and this is without doubt the best one. It goes on quickly, fits well without gaps, even when working with my head down, does not slide around, and is compatible with my glasses+safety goggles+hearing protector. The cartridges slip into a sleeve that you grab with a little rubber tab, rather than being screwed on; that may be a future point of failure, we'll see. But so far all is well. Also included is a leak-testing disk (black, the same size and shape as a prefilter), which goes in the place of the prefilter; this is quite useful and much better than trying to cover the filter with my hands for testing, as I did in the past. Obviously, this test disk has to be removed for regular usage - it is really quite leak tight!
Note that the mask DOES NOT come with cartridges, despite of what the product picture for SR100 S/M shows, and they need to be purchased separately. It does come with a prefilter holder - no need to order one - but with only ONE prefilter. If you work in dusty conditions, like I do, it is advisable to buy several prefilter packs.
Also note that there are TWO SIZES for the mask, SR100 S/M and SR100 M/L, which is not immediately obvious from the product listings.
