Half Mask Respirators
Something has changed in sizing
Per previous review, loved this mask - purchased new mask in June 2013 and the sizing is now smaller by 1/4" (Large) and the rubber seems stiffer, altogether making mask uncomfortable to wear. Will have to find different mask in future.
My most-used tool
I love this mask. It is probably the most un-glamorous tool I have, but I use it all the time from sanding to sawing to gluing/finishing and cleanup. I use the multi-gas cartridge with the particulate filters. I wish I had started using it sooner in my career. At 64 years old all those dusts and vapors can start to catch up. I have only lately discovered that materials seemingly as benign as white cedar can do permanent lung damage. I am sensitized to epoxy vapors. This mask lets me keep working with these materials. I prefer the standard version to the drop-down version.
