I have been using Gill masks as my principal tool for respiratory protection. I needed a mask since the Covid pandemic. After having looked at 100+ masks (and having used half a dozen) I settled on Gill masks. They remain my only go-to masks until now and even though the Pandemic is over. These masks are the best in terms of quality, efficacy, comfort, safety and costs. Highly recommended.
I like the inserts, how do i order more in the future
An exhalation valve would help with breathing during more intense activities. Otherwise, I love it.
Gill Mask - Black (Regular or Large)
Love the mask but not the fit at the bridge of the nose
After a long wait I was excited to finally receive this mask. The company was nice enough to send me the original Gill Mask + the conversion kit since they were out of stock on the Gill Mask Pro which I ordered. So now I have the option to use either the original design or that of the Pro model.
However, due to the fit of the silicone around the bridge of my nose allowing leaks, I will not be able to use the mask at all until I can hopefully find a solution. I did order the correct size based on the sizing instructions but in my case the top portion of the silicone simply doesn't hug the bridge of my nose tight enough to create the needed seal. I've tried various levels of tightness by adjusting the neck & head straps to no avail.
If I sightly press on both sides of the silicone around the bridge of my nose then I can force a perfect seal. I'm still experimenting with different things to achieve the same effect as my pressing on the sides around the bridge of my nose so I can achieve a seal, which is costing more money.
