Thanks.

They shown picture is of the mask as it would be during use. The other picture is of it in it's relaxed state. No neoprene just filter foam. They will filter aprox 4-10 microns +-5% This does not mean most smaller particles will get through. Wolfsnout dust masks are the easiest to breathe through and the coolest in the summer because the are made from high quality filter foam.
Filter foam works as a depth loading filter, opposed to a surface loading filter, trapping dust particles within its cell structure. Because the reticulation process leaves behind the skeletal structure of the foam it is 97% void volume giving it a high degree of surface area for impingement of dust particles. Filtered air enters over the entire mask. The comfort level is unmatched. They should not be used to protect against harmful particles or vapors.

Goggles
High quality cylindrical polycarbonate lens, a full .060 thick permanent anti-fog,
anti-scratch, inside and out.
Lenses meet or exceed ANSI787,1-2003 & CE EN166
high velocity impact safety standards. All lenses are UV400. These
goggles offer eye, cheek, and nose protection while
keeping debris out.
Soft micro fleece face seal for all day comfort.

Thanks for the quick response, but for the safety goggles I believe you should refer to ANSI Z87.1:2003, not ANSI 787,1, which doesn't exist. Also, please note that the 2003 version has been replaced with the 2010 version.

I see...a typo. the 7 should be a Z. Anyway...They are polycarbonate .060 thick. The ratings you refer to can be achieved with .030 as far as I know. Honestly, they are spec for motocross and off road racing at high speed with rocks and debris coming from the forward direction at around the same speed. I feel safe wearing them in my machine shop way more than any other safety glasses I have used in the past 30 years.
Thanks for pointing this out. I will look in to updating our certificate. I am certain at .060 they will exceed most ratings.
