John,
Your helmet looks like a winner!
As you know I usually have a beard, which makes fitting a respirator a bit dicey. So when I need to use really nasty stuff, I have to shave my beard and look silly for a couple of weeks while it grows back. The helmet should solve that problem nicely!

Good gravy, John - are you serious or was that a joke? While it looks like just the thing were I to be doing some asbestos demolition, possibly - although we don't see how the air pump is filtered to keep it from throwing nasties into the hood but I suppose it is - much more salient is that the only effective protection is one you use. And that one looks like exactly NOT that, if, for example, I were to be running one board through a planer or taking burrs of just one surface on the bench grinder.

So, bottom line question: Do you really use it consistently?

No joke, Audie, I did buy one and I like it a lot.

Once set up it takes only a little longer to put on than any other mask. It doesn't have to filter out the nasty stuff, the pump is placed far enough away to suck in only clean air. I ordered mine with 75' of hose (maximum is 300') so that I can place it outside in the clean, fresh Los Angeles air. It's like a portable spray booth, good for sanding, spray painting, or working with noxious chemicals.

However, for really quick stuff I do also have a plain old dust mask.

Get one and you'll love it, Jess.

Much easier than shaving off your beard.

Yup, it's good for foul odors too.
