Default Preferred Dust Mask

I was going to say I have a love/hate relationship with dust masks but I think it's only hate. Either I can't breathe through my nose or they fog my glasses or just down right uncomfortable. Any suggestions please? Thankyou!

You'll find that many prefer the Elipse P100 half mask. I've used several in the past and the P100 has been my favorite by far. I wear glasses and it works fairly well to wear them with the P100.

The P100 is a particle mask, but they also make higher level masks with different cartridges for protection beyond nuisance dusts.

I have worn this style at work. If you get a mask, get ones with the strap across the back of the head and not ones with ear loops.

Got the P100 today - really like it! Easy on/off and very comfortable. Thanks for the suggestion.

I just use regular N-95's but yea sometimes glasses are an issue. I have to prop them up over the nose clip and that seems to help. Tightening the clip every time you use the mask helps too.

Curious why you suggest that? I have always liked ear loops instead of forcing the bands around my big fat head.
