Does anyone have any suggestions on which respirator is most bearable with glasses? I've read about special add-ons, etc. for glasses wearers, but have never heard any opinions from actual people that have the same pain-in-the-ass problem as I do...
BTW, I'm interested mostly in the half-masks rather than the full face masks at this point.
EDIT: I have a North 7700 series half mask currently.
I never had any issue wearing glasses with them.
They need to be fit tested to be effective though.
There are many different sizes; one size does -not- fit all!
Again anytime you need a respirator, you need more gear and training to avoid bringing contamination to your car, home... what about your clothing and cam gear? That too needs to be decontaminated.
Avoid heavily contaminated sites.
I used a shop vac for the first clean on cams and gear. Careful with the viewfinder though especially on none pro cams and any vented lense. You can suck dust in...
Humans evolved in a dusty, dirty environment. Within reason some will do you no harm...
Be cautious with black molds, the mycotoxins can breach the skin, and should not be inhaled.
Anytime you get that burning sensation in the back of your throat... leave. Change as soon as you can and wash all clothes.
Yes, well... few really understand what the real nightmares are.
Any site that is rodent infested needs special precautions. Hauntavirus is lethal. Never disturb nests or areas with rodent feces or dried urine.
A simple paper face mask is adequate most times. Do not touch your face or eat until you wash your hands if you get into that muck. I know of two people in their 20s that died from it.
Pigeons droppings are another high risk. Their droppings carry a fungus that causes a lung/systemic infection. Nasty. I was sick for 5 weeks once from it. And I mean sick.
Same precautions as Hauntavirus virus in pigeon hellholes.
Learn or be burned.
