    Doesn’t fit, uncomfortable, recalled in CA due to poor fit, July 5, 2010

    I have tried these respirators for dusty activities like mowing, dusting/vacuuming, cleaning a litter box, and cleaning bird cages. They are a very poor fit for my smaller face, leaving a large open gap under my chin through which all the contaminated air flows. In order for a respirator to work, the seal around the edges must be tight enough that air flows *through* the filter material and not around the edges.

    The mask is also painful after only a few seconds of wear. The metal noseband is stiff and not padded, and no matter what I do, I can’t bend it enough to seal around the bridge of my nose. The shape of the mask is so flat that it presses down painfully on the tip of my nose. The edges of the mask are sharp. The top edge of the mask cuts into my eyelids and interferes with glasses, sunglasses, or safety goggles. The elastic strap is much too tight and painful, and my head is about average for a woman.

    For everyday dusty household and yard chores or for an emergency kit, it is important to have a respirator that will fit comfortably and work effectively, or you’ll end up not using it.

    I read recently that the California Department of Public Health recalled their entire emergency stockpile of 3M 8000 masks (about 60% of the state’s total stockpile) in early 2010 because the masks did not fit the health care workers who would need them in an emergency. I understand that no mask is truly one-size-fits-all, but this mask didn’t fit anybody properly and therefore didn’t filter the air properly when they did the fit-testing. Choose a different model of NIOSH-approved N-95 respirator.

    We are living in China, use the masks for occassional dust storms blowing through the city. Also, carry them on hand while bicycling for dust problems while travelling through small towns. Works great!

    These face masks are high quality and are comfortable to wear. I use them when scooping my cat’s litter boxes so I do not inhale the litter dust that escapes into the air.
