Dust masks can be restricting, particularly when you're trying to talk to someone. With its pleated sides, the 3M Vflex respirator solves this and other annoyances. Because the pleats add material to the sides of the mask, they give more flexibility around the jaw and provide a larger filtered surface area to breathe through. They also make it possible to fold the respirator flat, for easier storage.
