Pretty simple. My pollution mask is breaking (nose support is shitty pot metal and its about to snap) so I’d like something that’ll last more long term. This is for my job, and while I’m not required to have that sorta PPE, its just better IMO to have it than to not. Mostly I’m avoiding having any air draw from my nose or mouth, rather than filtering air.
If you don’t know, I’m a certified commercial pesticides / herbicides applicator now in category 3B and 6, 3B being ornamental plants, and 6 being right of way (walkway, driveway, parting lots, hot surfaces that increase Xicide volatility). I am working with Round Up a lot, and rather than have a health risk, mostly from fumes or drift, I’d like to have something cover my face that mutes any airflow from my nose or mouth.
Currently I have a pretty quality cloth mask with a metal bridge support, but as I said its breaking and I don’t feel like spending 15 bucks every 2 months because of shitty pot metal.
Props if theres a camo design.
I’m unsure where to really look for reputable vendors of N99 masks. N95 works, 99 is just a better filter is all.
