Craig's Review

A quality respirator should top the list of required tools for every person who enters a crawlspace. Disposable dust masks just don't cut it! They don't provide sufficient protection, plus, they're less comfortable and more costly to use.

I have been using the 3M™ Half Face Respirator for more than a decade, because it is the best respirator I could find that combines comfort and good protection in the crawlspace. Over the years, 3M™ has improved their great respirator to be even better. The 7500 series respirator in combination with the P100 Disk Filter qualifies as a great tool. The soft silicone surface shapes to your face, the exhalation valve design removes your hot breath, and the extremely low profile of the disk filters combine to make a respirator that you may forget you're wearing.

You might have noticed that we carry only the 7500 Series and not the lower priced 6000 Series or other dust masks. The reason is that we discovered during our testing a huge difference in comfort and fit with the 7500 being far superior. This convinced us to suspend carrying the 6000 Series. The small cost savings for an inferior fitting respirator made no sense, especially, when factoring in the cost over the years of service life of the tool. Your respirator is not the tool to skimp-on to try and save a few pennies.  

Duane's Review

Wear a filter or be a filter. You now know my philosophy on wearing a respirator. Over the years, I have tried the disposable dust mask, the respirators with huge canisters, full face mask respirators & even the bicyclist/runners mask from England. All of them had major drawbacks. The disposable dust mask & the bicyclist/runners dust mask do not filter out a lot of chemicals that we are exposed to. The respirators with the cartridges usually come in contact with the dirt while turning your head to go under objects. When the head is turned, the weight of the cartridges can pull the respirator from the face leaving one side of the nostril open for dust & chemicals to enter (ever have dirt marks at your nostrils & wonder why?). The full face masks I have used I do not like at all. My glasses fogged & I would sweat immensely making this a very uncomfortable experience.

The 3M 7500 face mask with the P100 filters attached is the most comfortable respirator I have used. I no longer worry about what terrible things are entering my lungs. I breathe very easily due to the incredible design. I wear my respirator with the Krawlcap. The straps go over the top of the Krawlcap. This method does not allow anything to rotate off my head exposing me to contaminated air & also protects me from scrapes & gouges on my scalp. I have also attached the Kap Spot Light to my Krawlcap to provide me with additional illumination while taking pictures & also for an emergency back up light. I HIGHLY recommend this whole set up!
