Rated 3 out of 5 by JB!! from Yeah but no but... Like most of us, I’m sick to death of trying different masks and finding faults with every one of them. Or maybe I’m just Goldilocks when it comes to masks, who knows! A fiver here, a tenner there... it all adds up! So I bought this mask from here as I expected a really high-quality product from a vendor of high-end outdoor brands. The quality IS pretty darn good, not amazing, but ultimately the sizing let’s it down. PROS: The quality of the material is really good. A pouch for a filter is a great feature. They even include a filter in that pouch! The straps are adjustable (using little sliders) and really comfortable. Could be comfortable for long use (except for the reasons below) The nose strip fits/pinches well and is comfortable. CONS: Material is so thick (especially with the filter in place) that it’s hard to be heard/understood. My face isn’t particularly big, nor do I have a big nose or large chin but the actual mask part is just an irritating bit too small... With the chin piece in place, the nose seam only just covers the tip of my nose which then constantly uncovers when talking due to jaw movement. If I fit the nose seam higher, the chin flap doesn’t fit. This results in constantly touching the mask and face to make repeated micro-adjustments. The small size also means the inside of the mask feels a little claustrophobic and restrictive. If this mask was a little bigger I would recommend them without question.
