Last week I received a phone call from the guys over at RZ masks, a manufacturer of air filtration masks. Truthfully, I’ve never heard of the company before but after some research I realized that they are extremely popular within the motocross community. The gentleman I spoke to told me that he has had an influx of request for filtration masks from the preparedness community. Come to find out, their masks are far superior than those being promoted to the prepper community.
They offered to send me a few masks with filter and asked me to give my opinion. A week or so passed and a package arrived at my door. I was extremely excited to see my new addition to my get home bag. The first thing I noticed was how lightweight and compact these masks actually are. Currently I have the traditional Israeli M64 masks packed in my GHB. They take up a lot of room when you start adding filters and such. Needless to say these new air filtration units from RZ where a pleasant surprise.
I opened the package and tried one on, what a fit! There is no messing around with seals and the fit is quite comfortable. The filters come in all types of grades depending on what your intended use is. Surprisingly, replacement filters are far more less expensive than traditional filter cartridges for my M64 mask.
I give these guys 2 thumbs up and 5 stars! So if you are looking for a QUALITY addition to your preps, please check these guys out!
BTW, I do not get paid for any endorsements, if a product does not work for me, I don’t publish a review.
