Oh boy. Roughly translated from the CEO of Honeywell
"Who the hell passed this? We better stop pushing this shite before I'm pulled in front of a select committee and our brand gets shamed"

To report: I opened one and tried it on.

No adjustment to the rubber band tension
No metal strip for adjusting to the nose.
It did not even try to seal to the shape of my face.
>90% of breath was passing through the gaps around the nose, steaming up my specs.
No amount of squeezing, moving or fidgeting would make it maintain a seal.
Not even as good as a blue surgical mask.

Honeywell North FFP3 = Total SHITE = WORSE THAN USELESS NOT worth £1 for 16.

Keep them and distribute to those you don't like in the event of another pandemic / nuclear fall out ;) :shock: :o

NORTH used to make bloody good PPE I've had some Honeywell masks in the past and they have been ok to say these are a let down is an understatement..

I took to Facebook a few years ago we had a 3M rep visit and the samples he left were crap they got told .. to the point another rep came back to work to try again :lol: :lol:

And the Lyrico rep who tried pushing his super nitrile gloves whilst we had a outside trainer doing first aid at work I split the glove he gave me to try he then tried saying it I put it on wrong / was being rough with it... Then pulled on the gloves we have at work I yanked it almost upto my elbow before it split.. then the first aid trainer ex ramc got one and did the same and he told him they were erm ... the more expletive word for poo... And how can he sell this stuff bearing in mind that people have hiv / hepatitis :lol:

I wish I could take a photo to do justice to just how shoddy they are.
Where they were (presumably steam and pressure ) moulded, they have formed rucks and folds and overlaps in totally random places around the edge. They are not even roughly symmetrical.

There is no redemption for these. Question to the collective..... Where can I get appropriate quality masks at acceptable cost. Preferably in quantity.

The 3m ones are ok but not as good as the spring fit
