I have a North brand respirator that has particle filters, and chemical filters. They are now about $30.00 for the half face. Mine works great and the particle filters for mine are $3.50 for two filter packs. The key is to make sure that the mask fits your face without having to cinch down the straps so tight that it hurts, you may have to try on several different styles to find the right one for you. Look in the yellow pages or on line for an Industrial safety company where your located and they can help fit you with the correct mask. I get my filter packs from a company called AIRGAS and they have masks as well so most companies that sell bottle gas should have respirators as well. I priced masks at the big box stores and they are a rip off. They wanted $7.50 for 1 particle filter pack and mine takes 2 so I found AIRGAS and the were $3.50 for two.

DONT BUY OFF THE RACK, GET FITTED FOR THE RIGHT MASK!
