Face/Dust/Ear Protection – Mask
I wear glasses and fine the standard dust masks a real nusiance to be pulling on and off. At the same time I frequently use protective glasses over my street glasses and got to thinking about using a combination type dust/sound/eye/ear protection?
Has anyone gone thru this and have you by chance found something out there that I might purchase to cover the same?
AO makes a Pro mask that drops down without changing strap positions near the temple pieces of your glasses. I fit mine with the older version of filters that aren't quite as tall as the new ones.
Consider (maybe going to a yard/lawnmower type shop and) buying a Husqvarna flip down clear mask with ear protection (with only a small, fabric "cap"). It's the best such mask out there. On occasion, I wear a Scott motorcyclist's mask under the Husqvarna. If you buy the tear-off lens type, you can use the Scott over your glasses while painting with an airless and always have a clear view.
If you're wearing a full-on face mask/respirator, consider removing the temple pieces from a sacrificial pair of glasses to be replaced by elastic that allows a better mask seal.
I've spoken with 3M about masks, eye glasses, and demographics. It's an area where the company is not innovative.
Thanks for the response. Could you please tell me who AO is?
Sorry. In my geographical area you can't look for a mask without running into AO.Please Google AO pro dust mask. It seems AMZN has a rebate going.
