What Mask is best for me?
When determining the best mask for you, it's important to think of the mask as a reusable shell that holds the replaceable filter comfortably in place. Aside from the hunting masks, all masks come stocked with the F1 Active Carbon Filter so, in terms of filtration, all masks are the same. The activity that you are doing and environment you are in determine which mask or essentially shell is best for you. Here is a breakdown of the characteristics of each of our available masks.
Our M1 Mask is constructed out of Neoprene and is ideal in cold to mild weather. It's also ideal for a lower intensity activity. The mask is secured to the head with a single strap around the back of the neck. This allows the user to quickly and easily apply and remove the mask.
Our M2 Mask is constructed out of a breathable mesh material which is ideal in mild to warm weather. It's also ideal for a higher intensity activity where you may be working up a sweat. The M2 has the same single strap as the M1.
Our M2.5 Mask is also constructed out of the same mesh material as the M2 however it has two adjustable elastic straps. One for around the back of the neck, and one for over the crown of the head. This second strap causes slightly more time for applying and adjusting the mask to fit properly, however it adds increased securement giving the user increase in mobility.
Our Scentless Hunting Mask line is a little unique. It has the ability to function the same as the M1 as it's constructed out of Neoprene and can hold our F1 Filter. It also can hold our F1 Scentless Filter which blocks the scent of your breath.
What Filter is best for me?
We carry four different types of filters. All Masks come with our F1 Standard Active Carbon Filters which carry a 99/9% efficiency down to .1 micron. This filter is effective towards dust, fumes, odors, smoke, allergens, organic chemicals and more.
The only exception is our hunting masks which come stocked with our F1 Scentless Filters designed to block the scent of our breath. They come stocked with two hunting filters and one F1 Standard Active Carbon Filter.
Our F2 and F3 offer increased breathability compared to the F1. They both carry a 97% efficiency rating down to 0.1 micron. The F2 does not carry any active carbon leaving it effective only to dust and allergens. The F3 does carry an active carbon element causing it to be effective towards fumes, odors, smoke and organic chemicals in addition to dust.
The F2 and F3 are geared towards the higher intensity user where you may be building up a sweat.
How long do Filters last?
The life expectancy of the RZ Filter depends on many variables, such as; particulate exposure density, particulate exposure duration, user breathing rate. With that said; below are our general guidelines
: As the user you will have the final call given your exposure.
20-30 hours of continuous use in heavy dust exposure to Grain bins, Off-road, construction/demolition etc.
30-40 hours of continuous use in light dust exposure to Grain Bins, off-road, construction/demolition etc.
50-60 hours of continuous use when protecting against allergens, pollutants, odors etc
This filter is interchangeable with all styles of RZ Mask models M1 Neoprene
, M1 Mossy Oak
and M2 Mesh
Can you wash the filter?
We recommend replacing your filter for maximum breathing protection when the active carbon has been depleted / Or visually the filter has been exhausted due to dust and other airborne particulates.
What is the difference between regular filters and scentless filters?
Both filters are composed of the same material with active carbon insert. The regular filters install directly with the exhaust valves of the mask, allowing for ideal ease of exhalation. The scentless filters are built to absorb the user's exhaled scent and do not utilize the exhaust valves. Therefore our scentless filters are designed for hunting only when breath concealment is a must.
What is your return policy?
We have a 90 day money back guarantee. For exchanges, we request that you contact us within 90 days of receiving the mask. We will need the original mask mailed to us prior to shipping out a new one.
What is your sizing guide?
We offer 3 sizes currently: Youth: Up to 125 LBS // Regular: 125lbs - 215lbs // XL: 215lbs and Greater
My mask has a plastic scent out of package, how can I eliminate this?
The smell will dissipate over time as the mask is worn. To expedite this, the mask can be placed in direct sunlight for a few hours, this will help absorb the scent. You may also wash your mask shell with mild soap, rinse well and let air dry.
How do I replace the filters?
The filters can be replaced by turning the inside of each valve, counter-clockwise. Each filter is affixed in between the valves. Once removed, the old filter can be disposed and the new filter can be placed in between the two valves. Turn the valves clockwise until they are tight.
How do you ship your orders?
We process all orders within 2 business days of receiving. Orders are shipped via USPS First Class (4-7 days), USPS Priority (2-3 days) or USPS Express (1-2 days).
Is the mask washable?
Yes, the mask can be washed. We recommend hand washing the shell with hand soap and warm water. Allow the mask to dry completely upon washing.
