    looking for a good simple dust mask or full face mask for a glasses wearer that dosnt get in the way of my glasses

    @optima21 i know you wear glasses I think

    I know you have one but cant remember what you had and im also asking what its like with it with glasses on do yours steam up when in use

    had enough of steaming up with cheap masks that just let the hot breath up towards your glasses lenses steaming them up I need something better

    its the same with wearing googles and a mask glasses always steam up under the the googles then cant see a thing

    If your glasses steam up with this you need to tighten the straps for a better seal.

    i use a draeger full face.... you can get an internal frame to hold prescription lenses... that way there is nothing to compromise the face seal
    depends how long you wear it for, but can be a pain looking after your other glasses

    Like here. Sits low enough down the nose for the glasses to sit.
    Wait one. Il pop out. Think it's still in the van. Screenshot_20190731-204457.png Screenshot_20190731-204457.png

    with glasses you wont be getting a propper face seal... if you block the filter inlets with your hands can you breathe in and pull a vacuum?

    Yes. The vacuum is formed around the mouth and nose piece not the whole facemask
    Secondary seal around the face doesn't effect the filters

    Good evening gents. I have to 'P200' Sunstrom I think that's what it is called. Very similar to the 3M around the face, however the filters or better filter comes directly out from middle of where the '3M' logo is on the above face mask. There is a choice of filter types for all applications, I have had mine for over 15years and had changed the visor plastic screens in them several times, due to scratching. Overall they work and yes I can use glasses with them on

    dont like to disagree, but if yours is identical to the 3m picture that you posted, the air is drawn through the filters, up past the visor, to keep it clear, then into the inner mask through the valves either side of the inner mask....the inner is only there to direct the moist exhaled air out the exhaust valve, and away from the visor, so it does not mist.... with glasses on there is a good chance the outer seal is compromised , and some of the air is bypassing the filter...
    i wear ba, and masks at work, and have to have a faceseal test ever so often....
    even stubble can be a problem

    By all means do disagree.
    Just checked and your correct.
    In which case I get a good deal even with glasses.
    My old resp was sealed around mouth and nose

    ordered and paid for the mask late last nitgh it was dispatched and had arrived at house the next morning

    surprisingly quick

    ordered a small one from here

    already tested and tried out feels nice on face no air escaping towards the eyes nice and snug fit onto face nose and chin

    breathing is easier through it feels cool when you suck air in and breath out to a degree

    as above tried it on a few things now no steaming up of glasses at all the main thing

    breathing is really easy through the mask weather grinding with metal or grinding dusty references

    you can also use it with a bit of facial hair as well but is better to have none for a better seal against your face
