dust mask

Post by Graeme from Tod »

Have been using one of these for a few months:

https://www.screwfix.com/p/trend-stealt ... -p3r/346fh

At first I felt that It wasn't fitting perfectly around my face but it seems to have moulded itself to my big head.

It's comfortable to wear for prolonged periods but it sometimes seems to push my glasses slightly upwards, (That might be the aforementioned big head ).

Peter Millard has a review of it on his YouTube channel.

I have the Force 8 , The Trend and the GVS Elipse . I find the Elipse the best as it doesn't steam up my specs as much. I have a 60cm head so some don't give me the seal I require.
