3M RESPIRATOR

LRO (UK) - - Used & Abused -

This 3M Se­ries 6000 mask can be used with var­i­ous types of fil­ters, from par­ti­cles to or­ganic vapour types. I have used the lat­ter lately as I’ve been do­ing a lot of spray and paint gun jobs. The mask seals tightly (it comes in var­i­ous sizes), and is very com­fort­able and light. More im­por­tantly, it’s easy to breathe through, un­like a pre­vi­ous branded mask I’ve tested.

The fil­ters clip on with a quar­ter turn and are just a few pounds for a set. The only neg­a­tive is that my paint gog­gles fit very tightly in the thick plas­tic nose part, but an­other pair solved this. All in all, you could not ex­pect more from a respirator, es­pe­cially at this price point.

VER­DICT: Pro­tect your lungs for £20 – bar­gain!
