StanleyÂ® Comfort Mask, 5-pk
Fine for sawdust
These are fine for dealing with sawdust from sanding or cutting wood. To deal with smaller particles, get a mask with an N95 rating.

Effective in the right application.
These are effective to block out dirt or coarse grit -- but for fine dust or spray - best to go with a more secure and tight mask.

These masks provide very little protection
I have used these masks when sanding drywalls, they didn't fit very well over my face and while they are probably better than nothing, compared to other masks I used, they are clearly inferior. A good dust mask could mean the difference between healthy breathing and respiratory problems, so I would recommend spending a little more for something better.

If your goal is to limit your dust exposure for a couple of minutes then they work compared to breathing the air around you normally. Although they do not work if you have a large nose. Spring for a rubber particle filter mask, your lungs with thank you the next day. Don't waist any money on these.

these things do not offer any protection from dust, don't waste your money. Spend a little more and get the ones witht the double yellow elastics.
