These masks are fantastic for COVID-19. They have P95/P100 filtration, are easy to put on/off, don't hurt your ears, and seal well to your face to not fog your glasses.

However, you MUST modify them to fix the exhalation valve. Luckily, this is quite straightforward. There are two options. As others have mentioned, you can wear or tape a surgical mask over the exhale port which will make it at least as good as everyone else just wearing surgical masks.

Alternatively, you can remove all three rubber valve flaps, and then seal up the middle output port completely with tape. Now breathing in and breathing out both go through the filters. Wearing the mask will be a bit warmer, but its worth the tradeoff for P95/P100 filtration for yourself and others.

​These "elastomeric half face respirators" are awesome and a real hidden gem. They are a lot easier to get a good seal and they're one of the very few ways to get real N95 filters without robbing from front line healthcare workers. They're also a lot easier to breathe through and they're designed to be more comfortably worn for long periods. The only drawback to using these is that they do not filter the exhaled breath. (The exhale port can be covered with some DIY filter material, cloth or meltblown material.)

The mask assembly is only part of the system, you'll also want to get cartridges/filters that come in a single unit or a stack of 2-3 pieces. The best ones are a single unit that's encased in plastic. This makes it easier to keep clean and less likely to be handling the nasty part of the filter. The 7093 is actually rated as P100 and is the easiest to breathe through. The other single piece 6000 series ones are good too (no matter how they are labeled for various gasses). These might be restricted to health care people and they are harder to find.

The other filter style that's easier to find comes in 2-3 pieces: a 6000 series base piece (the gas type doesn't matter much), with a separate plastic attachment (Filter Retainer 501) on each cartridge to hold a N95 particulate filter ("3M Particulate Filter 5N11"). If you can find one, there's also a blank cartridge that will hold the N95 filter ("Filter Adapter 603").

3M does make the pink puff ball style filters that are easy to breathe through and are rated N95 but they require more caution when handling because there's no shroud.

Here's an overview of the different systems:

Regarding the exhalation port...
In a perfect world, we'd all have real N95 masks in such abundance that we could put on a fresh one whenever it's required and then just toss it. Frankly, it feels a bit 3rd world that 6+ months in and we're still struggling with this. But, until that day comes, the elastomeric respirator is the next best thing. For most of us, this is about the only way to get a hold of a real N95 (or even N100). Plus, it's economical, comfortable, and easy to get a good seal. The only real downside is that it doesn't filter the exhale. Here's a few thoughts and solutions:
  • Almost all of these half-face respirators have a valve or flap that allows air out but not back in. These valves redirect and disperse the exhaled breath in much the same way as a loose fitting paper mask. Some of these masks, like the 3M 6500 and 7500 series, will redirect all exhalation downward, eliminating most of the risk.
  • 3D printing - Adapters are available to attach a 3rd filter.
  • Add your own 3rd filter - The exhale port can be covered with the same material that might be used to make cloth masks or even use paper mask material. The exhale valve is only about 1" across, so it's simple enough to cover the valve with cloth and tape it down with duct tape. (It was good enough for Apollo 13, so probably good enough here.) Taping on the inside keeps the DIY filter material cleaner. Because the exhale port is so small, the cloth can't be too thick or it becomes difficult to exhale. Taping the DIY material to the outside of the mask makes it a tiny bit easier to breathe through. It's also possible to create a larger pocket for the outside of the mask that can increase the volume which will make it much easier to breathe through, even with superior filter materials like meltblown fabric or Halyard 600. The attached pics show some examples using a 3M 7500 series.
I'm also a fan of the 7500 series! Better seal and more comfortable than than the 6000 series.

What I did to mod mine was simply remove all three check valve flaps, and seal the middle part with tape. The mask is a bit warmer (and I do get a little fog on my glasses using the puff ball filters), but this way my exhale is filtered P100 as well.

Another downside is that it's an invisible mod and if you go a place that has a strict no valve policy (like a hospital) you will have to convince them that you've actually done this.

But it made more sense to me than adding another filter around the exhalation port, especially because my non-modded masks tend to condense moisture to the point of dripping.

Has anyone previously purchased this? Was wondering if it is going to come in a resealable bag as the 6200's were a couple of weeks ago or in a blister pack. I saw one 1 star review that mentions that it came in a resealable and that it was used but that was also over a year ago.

Anyone know if this offers any chlorine protection?
They make various filter cartridges that filter different types of vapors and such, you should check the 3M website directly instead of relying on a forum post for something that important though. They list all the different filters and their uses. (I'm not just withholding the info, I don't know which filters if any work against chlorine.)

I wore this with the P100 filter for weeks, thinking I was helping myself and everyone else around me until I went to get an antibody test and learned from the triage nurse that I was distributing my unfiltered mouth filth all over everything. No Covid (from subsequent test) and no antibodies, thankfully. But damn I felt horrible.
You felt horrible because by wearing this you protected yourself from COVID, thereby making it impossible for you to infect anyone else? This backlash against valved P100 respirators is insane to me when 1/2 the population thinks it's a hoax and either doesn't wear a mask or wears some super-loose thin cloth under their nose or even on their chin. If everyone did what you did, COVID would be eradicated by now.

If you are buying for COVID-19, don't. This mask has an exhalation valve and offers no protection against spreading coronavirus to others.

One can place a more conventional mask over the outlet making it equipment in terms of exhalation to simple masks a majority or people are wearing. Btw, these type of masks are worn by nurses working in hospitals with simple masks over the outlets.

If you purchase one of these make sure its vendor is Amazon and not a 3rd party selling through Amazon. Because of demand there has been a surge of knockoffs being sold on their marketplace and on eBay that are counterfeit
