The Respro Bandit Mask screens you from nuisance dust and odors. The strategic design of this mask protects
you from the
sand blasting effect of coarse wind-carried dust, as well as urban
pollution. The Bandit incorporates a Dynamic ACC (activated
charcoal) filter which is laminated between the cotton material of
the mask. The filter is
strategically placed around the breathing area. This coverage creates the Bandit
mask's comprehensive protection.
The Bandit Mask's best quality is extra coverage of the neck area. Sometimes, this mask is referred to as a scarf.
The mask is made to last for at least six months and the specially treated filter is fully washable.
This 100% cotton mask is functional, convenient, and comfortable. It is suitable for both summer
and winter conditions. Available in two patterns: red diamond and blue diamond. One
size fits all.
Best mask ever

I have been recently been diagnosed with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. I also have asthma and chronic bronchitis. I have worked in health care for 35 years and have had to medically retire. I have worn every kind of mask in my job. The Respro allergy mask with the charcoal filter has gotten me out of my house. I actually got to fly to with my children and grandchildren for the holidays this year. The most comfortable mask ever.

Customer Q & A
Q1: How do I wash my bandido mask? A: Boil a small pan of water, remove from heat and immerse the mask. The heat from the water will help to release compounds and particles trapped by the filter. Once the water has cooled, with the mask in it, you can hand wash the mask with a mild soap, avoid the powder detergents, rinse well and allow to air dry. With regular use, you'll want to do this about once a month.
Q2: This mask seems like it would be just perfect to wear with a cowboy hat and boots, but is it a suitable option for horse back riding? This mask doesn't seem to seal as tightly as other masks, so I am not sure if that would create a problem with all of the dust horses create. Also, does the mask need to be changed as often if it is not used on a daily basis?
A: There is a secondary strap sewn in that pulls the lower portion of the mask, tighter against the jaw and lower part of the face. This does help to seal it more. In general though, I would say the Allergy, Sportsta or Techno would be a better fit. First, all three of those have replaceable filters, unlike the Bandit Scarf. Second, all three do seal tighter around the face. Regardless of which you would go with, the filters in the Allergy, Sportsta and Techno or the Bandit Scarf would need to be replaced after about 60 hours worth of use. That's an estimate as conditions of use will vary. Remember to put the mask in a ziploc or sealed container after use. The carbon in the filters continues to work even if you're not wearing it, so sealing it up between uses can get you a little more filter life. Hope that helps!
Q3: Can the Respro Bandit Mask be dried in the dryer instead of air drying? Thank you
A: You'll want to be careful if you try a machine dryer. The main thing is the heat and shrinking the mask. I'm not sure how the filter media will hold up to low heat.

Respro Bandit Mask
The Respro Bandit Mask is great for winter or summer climates. The mask is comfortable and makes doing outdoor activities much
more endurable and enjoyable. The bendable metal nose clasp and draw string allow you to find a comfortable fit for your face.
The two things that set this mask apart from others we offer is the coverage of the neck area
and the use of the activated charcoal filter. This filter
protection and coverage are excellent protection
for someone that has to walk or bike to work in cold weather. It also works great for commuters on the subway or train who have to stand
waiting on outdoor platforms.
