    Pretty good mask! Not cute though
    Smallish, might not be ideal for larger men but worked perfectly for me - and I am a petite woman. Straps hang loose when tightened and sealed to my face, which was a problem until I just figured i would tie them behind my neck under my ponytail.

    A word of support for women who wear masks and makeup (such a bother sometimes): the little black foam fitter inside the mask will absorb your makeup very very very easily, so don't store it with your clothes or wear it again if you do use makeup. Nearly impossible to clean. If you wear makeup under a mask (I have, oops), try a reusable respirator instead!

    Good for most things
    I have worn this mask for some time. It is great for dusting, etc. And, it is good for the larger pollens. It does not do so well for the smaller pollens such as ragweed. Better than nothing for smaller pollens but I am switching back to a HEPA for Spring and Fall outdoor pollens.

    Comfortable relief
    I've been delighted with this mask. It's very light and comfortable, and is helping me to get allergy relief while taking less allergy medicine.

    Best Mask for Allergies
    I purchased a mask from a different store and wasn't thrilled with the fit. I suffer from asthma needed something that would help with the dust trigger. This mask did an outstanding job secure fit and still allows comfort. I highly recommend this mask for others.

    Easy to use and wear
    This mask is much easier to use than the one with the big pink pads. I wore this mask to use the power blower on dusty, dirty exterior porches and patios. I forgot I had it on! I had a small mark on my cheek from the mask, but I think it happened when I scratched myself when I removed it I would recommend it for those with serious dust and pollen alleries.

    Excellent Product
    I am highly allergic to mold. My worksite recently went without AC for three weeks during very hot and humid conditions. When the AC came back on, I started getting sick and the discovered mold in the building which they are in the process of cleaning up. This mask makes it possible for me to breathe and function at my job.

    Allergy Induced Asthma
    Mask is very comfortable easy to wear all day while cutting lawn and working outside. Pulmonist suggested, noticing difference in protecting from allergens. Price is right.

    good mask for big nose
    Great mask for me considering the size of my nose. Works as advertised. easy to breathe, doesn't fog my glasses, good seal. Only problem is my nose. the metal piece across the bridge as well as the seal are helpful but i must still stuff cotton under the seal to completely prevent air from escaping/entering near my eyes. my fault for having a big nose, but i had hoped the seal would be a little better suited to any type of nose. overall i love the mask and will buy more.

    good mask
    The mask is comfortable. It is well designed and seals around the face well unlike the cheaper versions. I think it is a good option for those who have very bad allergies or asthma.

    Easy to get used to
    This mask worked great for my 82-year-old grandmother. Easy to use over her oxygen tube.

    3M 8293 HEPA Mask Reviews

    3M 8233 & 8293 HEPA Respirator

    When it comes to personal filtration of particles, there is no higher standard than a HEPA rated mask. The 3M 8293 HEPA respirator meets and exceeds this with a full P100 NIOSH rating. What does that mean for you? Not only does it remove 99.97% of particles but it also captures oil-based particulate. This filtration makes it an ideal mask for anyone dealing with particle allergies, asthma, COPD, or workplace air pollution. I've used this mask off and on throughout the years, and here is how it fares.

    What I like about the 3M 8293 HEPA Mask

    First and foremost, the filtration is on par with masks that could cost three times as much. The HEPA filtration means particles like dust, mold spores, pollen, and pet dander are filtered out. This also means viruses and pathogens are block, as the 8293 exceeds the CDC recommended N95 filtration level. Lastly, the "P" NIOSH rating means it will also remove oil based particulates that can often pass through a traditional N100 or R100 rated mask. So whether you're doing chores around the house, traveling, working on a home renovation project, or simply work in an environment that has a high amount of air particulate, the 3M 8293 has you covered.

    This mask is what I consider "semi-disposable". While it doesn't have replaceable filters like the 6291 Respirator, it's not a single use mask like a traditional N95. Instead it occupies this middle ground. Most people can get well over 120 hours of use of this mask. Typically, it should be replaced after 150 hours or when there's a noticeable drop in filtration or increase in difficulty to breath through the mask - whichever comes first. So while it's more expensive than a standard N95 mask, it offers far superior filtration and has a longer use life.

    The 8293 does is a valved mask, which is why most consider it a respirator. The valve allows for some heat and moisture to escape, though in warm conditions or if you're doing something physically rigorous, it will build up heat. It's fully adjustable, with a pliable nose piece and two sets of straps that can be lengthened or shortened to suit your needs. In terms of comfort, a soft foam ring encircles the edge of the mask, so it seals well around the face. By having three points of adjustment and the foam seal, it's likely one of the most comfortable masks you'll wear.

    What I did not like about the 3M 8293 HEPA Mask

    The warmth is likely to add up. If you're traveling or using it indoors, the extra warmth isn't much to speak of. If you're in a warm environment or doing somthing physically tasking, you're likely to notice the warmth in relatively short order. This is common with mask, particularly those with better filtration.

    There isn't much downside to this mask. The filtration is as good as any out there. The cost is inexpensive, and the lifespan far outpaces cheap masks. The fit and comfort levels are solid. As a final note, I will say that if you do not need the additional protection of oil based particles, you may want to consider the 3M 8233 HEPA respirator. It offers the same level of particle filtration (without the ability to filter oil-based particles) but costs a couple bucks less. Overall, there are no better masks for particles. Everything else is either rated the same (P100) as the 8293 or lower.

    Product Questions

    I&#39m asthmatic and often breathe through my mouth. Will this mask stay in place and sealed if I open my mouth to breathe?
    .I live in the San Joaquin Valley California where they grow cotton and during the fall season they spray to defoliate and it has DEF.lots of people here get allergies that time of year and it&#39s difficult.which mask could I buy and wear every day to help me for two months of the year.
    How many uses before dispossing it? By that I mean after cleaning the house one day can I use it again the following day to finish up?
