He says it doesn't smell bad when he has the mask on, which is as good a test as any available to us.
(the pictures are with duct tape, but gorilla tape stays put about 10x better on the felt.)
The construction of this mask is a bit different from others of this general type. Most masks of this type have little depth. This mask is thick and has two part construction in depth. The surface of the mask is rigid on the outside. The interior of the mask is softly compliant. The springy exterior of the mask keeps the straps from pulling out, keeps the valve where it needs to be and holds the mask shape. The interior of the mask is soft, follows the curves of your face and wicks away sweat. The compliant, soft surface of the interior is perhaps the most important feature of the design both in terms of the fit and in preventing from dust from working its way around the side of the mask into your nose and mouth.
The breather valve has been added to reduce the effort in breathing through the mask. This is not the only function the valve has. The valve is positioned to guide your breath away from your glasses. This means that on cooler mornings that my glasses do not fog up. If you do work which routinely requires masks you will recognize this problem. Heat rises. With a mask without a valve my warm breath rises from the mask and fogs my glasses. The valve exhaust is positioned to prevent that. On all sorts of levels this mask has been carefully thought through both in design and construction.
By the way I have no relationship with 3M or any of its distributors. No one paid me to write this product evaluation. I appreciate the reviews written by others which guide me to better tools and more durable products, and help me separate good tools from cleverly packaged junk. I am returning the favor.
I've used this model for years, and here's why:
- it's actually comfortable
- it's very breathable. I can bike with it and breath quite hard before it becomes a hindrance.
- it's rated N95, i.e. this is good against particles like PM2.5 (filters 95% of them)
- the seal is very good regardless of your face shape and that's important
Note: This is what to get if you're in the bay area and looking for a mask right now. Do not get the non-rated one. You want N95 or P100 only. I just gave away what I had left so I'm getting a new pack.
