Recommended Respiratory Equipment

recommended respiratory equipment

Wearing appropriate respiratory equipment is an absolute must for a welder. Your lungs need to be protected, plain and simple.

A welding mask or helmet will not be enough. In fact, it won’t help you at all. Here are a few options we like a lot.

best welding respirator mask - breath buddy respirator mask

The Breath Buddy is on the more expensive side of respirator masks, but you get what you pay for.

Here is a list of what we like and what we don’t.

Breath Buddy Pro

  • Stays nice and cool.
  • It’s super easy to breathe in (by respiratory mask standards).
  • It’s very lightweight. Goodbye canister filters!
  • Great for multiple applications. Woodworkers, painters, welders, and people with COPD or sensitive to airborne allergens can all benefit.

Breath Buddy Cons

  • Pink isn’t really my color. They could make a darker color for me and I’d be thankful.

We highly recommend this mask for welding in addition to many other applications.
