Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average Very difficult to insert filters into the housing. Extreme force required to engage the lugs of the filter. Manufacturing fault I guess.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mask Not much to say about a mask, it's comfortable for long sessions, it filters very well, lots of options for the filters for different materials and they aren't crazily priced while they also should last about a week or two of heavy dust, it's easy to fit and the press to check function is quite helpful in making sure you have the fit correct. My only issues are that a lot of water droplets do build up inside the mask after several hours of use, so I'd be worried about mold if you don't clean it out before storing for a while, and that the rubber picks up dust and really likes to retain it, even after washing, so it ends up looking quite shabby.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Award Winning Mask The Force 8 won an award in 2014 and minor changes have been made since then. It is sold world-wide, so overall it must be serving well. However, In the first half-hour of wearing one, I found the face seal unreliable - if you yawn, speak or accidently nudge the mask slightly, that could be enough to let air in, even if the mask is on fairly tight (and therefore a little uncomfortable). So yes, press-to-check before you start work but also check regularly during work. There are niggles. It's almost impossible to adjust the straps with the mask on, it would be much better if they could be adjusted from the front instead of behind your head. I did it by trial and error, mask off each time, to get a best fit. The quick release strap is very good. Fitting the filters requires a bit of force - feels like you are going to break them, but a firm fit is necessary. They stick out a bit. It's very fiddly to get the mask on (see the screwfix video on how best to do it). The straps could be a bit wider for better comfort. If you are wearing prescription glasses under goggles I recommend Bolle Anti-fog for comfort and fit. That combination works well with this mask, but might not suit everyone as you have three items fighting for the ridge of your nose. There are a lot of JSP products that I really like, but I do feel the Force 8, very good though it is, would benefit from a design overhaul (I am a design engineer as well as an enthusiastic DIY'er).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good mask, rubbish elastics I keep buying these because generally they seal well (when new) and remain good value. I would probably buy and dispose of fewer, if only the elastics were better quality. The elastics scarcely outlast the filters, I usually get one filter swap, then I find the elastics bagged out, so i tighten them to seal again (which works) and a few hours later they are like useless bits of string.

Do you only stock medium - I need a small mask, I note various sizes are available from JSP and other retailers
Asked by: WestLothian
My answer above about JSP only making one size is wrong - they make four different sizes in total (including small). The 'medium' size is the original, the others having been added to the range later. You cannot buy direct from JSP unless you are an approved Reseller (as Screwfix is). It is true that the original medium size is going to fit a large percentage of people.

Is this good for using epoxy resin? And what filters are best for using resin.

Asked by: TABBY66
The Force 8 is actually manufactured in small, medium, large and "short-wide" sizes. The version Screwfix offer is medium. They are designed to fit a range of face shapes (male and female) so you might like to try the medium from Screwfix......

Hi does this mask protect from steaming and stripping old wallpaper & paint?

Asked by: Kermit123

Is the Site mask supplied on collection the same as the advertised JSP one?

Have been supplied with a Site brand mask - which is the B and Q/Screwfix version. Please can you confirm that the Site mask is to the same standard/specification as the original JSP mask and is compatible with Force 8 filter cartridges.
Asked by: NJ58
I subsequently discussed my question with the Screwfix Customer department. The box is labelled Site, a B and Q/Screwfix brand, but contents of the box, including storage bag and instructions, are JSP. A bit confusing - hence my question. Have since used - works well.
