Default m2 mesh mask

Hello all, don't know if anyone knows about this mask. was at Lowe's recently and discovered this particulate mask which filters stuff down to .1 micron. it also works against smoke, odors,fumes and organic chemicals. here's a pic.

Hey, thanks for sharing...those look good.

I have a couple of N95 in both of our bug out bags but I think I will get a couple of these too.

Denise has super bad asthma, anytime it gets smoky around here we just bail...

Those masks would allow her to stay home in the kitchen where she belongs....

Actually, I think it would.
Tear 'gas' isnt really a gas, or a smoke. Its an aerosoled particulate and I believe the particles are just over 1.0 micron.

This mask will supposedly filter to 0.1 micron....
