Effective pollution masks N95/N99/P95/99

That is true! And thank you for bringing it to my attention. I went to their website and found published test-results. Their webpage states the following:  

 

"All SUPER SEAL filters are independently tested at Nelson Laboratories, Salt Lake City, Utah, U.S.A."

 

https://www.style-seal.com/testing/

 

I'll definitely read the results. 

Seems like the filter is effective but the seal is even more important so make sure there's no air coming in from the sides. When I used a similar mask I couldn't get a seal around the bridge of the nose.

3m makes charcoal masks that are sold at Tesco. Work better than the regular surgical masks. About 19 baht each.

Good time to re think your future if it will involve a mask everyday. You will scare everyone. Ironically the worst air pollution I ever saw in the USA was in Salt Lake City UTAH where the OP says one of the masks is tested. Never saw pollution like that back in New England. Most days BKK is fine. Don't read all the stupid hype about the last couple days. Something else will most likely get you here.

Agreed! That's actually why I visited their warehouse so I could try one on in my size, instead of just ordering one from their webshop. It sealed up nicely, especially over the bridge of my nose where I usually experience the same problem as you. All in all their seal fit me as good as it gets without going full Darth Vader :)

A mask sold by Xiaomi is probably designed for Chinese face shapes. I'm fairly sure it wouldn't fit me and many other Westerners but it depends on your own individual face shape.

Sorry but I don't believe the hype about masks and air pollution in BKK right now. After a few days and a weather change it will be back to normal.
If you stand near a cigarette smoker and catch some smoke accidentally it's much more harmful than the concentration right now.
But up to everyone else of course.
Just my opinion.

It's not intended for working out. I walk along long stretches of highways(?) in Siam on my way to school. It's just a precaution. The fewer particles I inhale, the happier I am :) So, what I am looking for is basically a mask that offers protection against pollution. 

Siam? Thailand??
