    Default Dust mask recommendations

    Hey all

    Looking for some cheap effective suggestions for dust masks for Coachella. Last weekend we were at weekend 2 and found it to be amazing. No dust, no wind etc. However heard weekend 1 it was very much needed.

    I'm curious as to what everyone thinks of the masks and maybe some links to getting some that are fairly cheap/effective!

    Thanks in advance.

    As a precaution, I bought a package of these respirators from CVS prior to attending weekend 1 last year after experiencing the 2013 weekend-1 desert dust storm. They seemed to be pretty effective at shielding the dust when the winds picked up once again. I'll be getting another box for this year and may opt for some safety goggles as well.

    THIS!!

    I cannot recommend them enough if attending Weekend 1. After getting sick in 2013, I prepared with a medical mask for 2014 and it was a blessing. No fucks given on what others thought because I didn't leave the festival with a sinus and respiratory infection.

    If you want to get serious about your dust game, I recommend going for products that are designed for off road riders. RZ Masks have saved my life the last couple of years.

    How many headlines can you make out of the 2016 lineup? i.e. "Young monsters moon strangers for pure horror."

    I use the home depot basic ones...they are $1 and work fine. Been using them every year.
    I buy 3 (one for each night) - toss it at the end of the night...in case I lose it.

    Don't forget to buy clear goggles from home depot to protect your eyes

    Sunglasses aren't going to do the job - 1st off they are dark so at night shows it's too dark and 2nd they don't wrap around your eyes so dust WILL get in...and thus you are rubbing your eyes the next fews days.
    Get clear safety glasses - NOT the ones you wore in science class.

    The dust doesn't get bad until around 5.

    One thing to remember is if it's windy at all during the day it's going to be bad at night

    If there's enough wind to blow your hair around by 1pm it's gonna be a dust storm like none other by 8pm...and exfoliating your skin by 10pm.

    Well...I am a guy so I think I'll skip the cute bandana, maybe for my gf.

    dj12inches thanks for the dustmask suggestion I think Ill grab one of those. 30 bucks is totally worth it. Would you say that they are comfortable to wear? 30 bucks is cheap for how nice they are.

    Trust me. Spend the extra few bucks and get these. You can breath so much better and you get way less hot than the regular kind. They also hold up much better.

    I have a respro techno, it is required for going out post lung transplant, so you know it does what it's supposed to. Has a dual filter system that keeps pretty much everything out. Same idea/style as the RZ mask, without the horrible chemical smell. Filters are also replaceable and run around $10 a piece. Can also Google vogmask, many color combos available with those. The neoprene ones will get hot during the day, though. I have worn mine comfortably for 8+ hours several times.

    I like the RZ mask, it is comfortable and can be adjusted easily, just be sure to get the right size. Also, it comes with extra inserts so you can change them if they get really dirty. The vents on the side are also adjustable so you can control the airflow.

    Even if there is zero wind when you are doing the death march to the shuttles you will be walking thru think dirt kicked up by the masses and breathing it all in so best to have something to help out

    These are AWESOME - they are clear - they look good and under $3.00.

    I buy 3 - one for each night - in case I lose a pair....or someone needs a pair.

    I just bought another pair because my old ones were scratched up. The home depot by the festival sold out of these goggles the last 2 years during the festival time.

    Bump. Since Thursday night and Friday might be on the windy side, there could potentially be some airborne desert dust once again like during weekend 1 of 2013 and 2014. I'm going to invest in a pair or two of Home Depot goggles.

    Those may or may not keep the dust out.

    Why not get some swim goggles? You can get tinted ones that look cool....

    So do you guys recommend a dust mask even if it isn't a wind/dust storm? Do you just wear it all day or only if dust kicks up from wind storms?

    Second this - they did a pretty great job on the dust last year, plus are soft and you can wrap around more of your head if necessary. Not sure if you rush-shipped if they would get wherever you are in time for Wkd 1. http://buffusa.com/

    They have them on Amazon Prime so delivery before Friday should be doable. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_no...=original+buff

    No need to wear all day. Just bring your mask and goggles with you so you have them. If you are getting a locker, you can store them there until needed.

    I just ordered mine from Vogmask due to seeing this thread. Vogmask is AMAZING in customer service. My mask is being sent from SF to So Cal and for some reason USPS messed up and sent my mask to a city that is a 1 hour drive away from me (normal), but for some reason it was sent all the way back up to San Francisco. It has now left SF postal service again, but I was afraid I wouldn't receive it in time for my weekend plans. I e-mailed them letting them know that I know it is not their fault, but if there is anyway that they can tell me if it will make it in time for Desert Trip this weekend. Without question they over-nighted me another mask ($30 for mask + $20 for overnight FedEx=$50 value) so that it will make it in time for the festival. I then asked where I should ship the first one when I ultimately receive it and they so generously told me to keep it if I ever do receive it. I find this level of customer service outstanding and suggest them to anyone going to a dusty music festival. They also have many options and colors/patterns for both men and women!

    Edit: I will report back once I use it this weekend. Sadly, I just read the reviews on Amazon and there are some mixed ones. Hoping the vogmask does what my True Value N95 Mask did for me this past weekend.
