OSHA has issued a final rule (March 2016, OSHA Respirable Crystalline Silica in Construction Regulations - 29 CFR 1926.1153) for America's workers, limiting their exposure to respirable crystalline silica, a substance OSHA has stated can increase the risk of developing silicosis, lung cancer and kidney disease. 3M has resources and PPE to help you as you work to meet the new exposure limit and help protect your crew.
From the Manufacturer
The 3M Rugged Comfort Quick Latch Half Facepiece Reusable Respirator 6500 Series helps provide respiratory protection in harsh, dirty environments against airborne contaminants when used with approved 3M cartridges and filters. This facepiece combines comfort, durability, and stability with a firm, lightly textured silicone faceseal and strong body construction. The proprietary quick latch design offers an easy, one-hand touch drop-down mechanism for putting the facepiece on and taking it off while moving in and out of contaminated areas. The quick latch also eliminates the need to remove a hardhat or faceshield when lowering or raising the respirator. When properly fitted and used with approved 3M cartridges and filters, this respirator helps provide respiratory protection at concentrations up to 10 times the Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL). While being the lightest silicone 3M facepiece, it is still rugged enough to withstand long hours and extreme conditions. The resilient silicone faceseal offers an extended facepiece life, even keeping its shape in high-heat environments.
The facepiece offers numerous other comfort features. Two innovative design features have been built in: a special valve cover that helps to direct exhaled breath and moisture downward and 3M’s proprietary Cool Flow Valve that helps to make breathing easier by reducing heat and moisture. Made to fit securely and comfortably on the head, the facepiece comes with an adjustable head harness assembly featuring long-lasting polyester/spandex straps that stretch and conform to the individual who wears the respirator. This facepiece is compatible with all 3M bayonet-style filters and cartridges, including 6000 Series Cartridges and 3M 2000, 2200, 7000 or 5000 Series Filters, to help provide respiratory protection against a variety of gases, vapors, and particulate hazards according to NIOSH approvals. This filter compatibility helps to make the respirator highly versatile for many workplace environments and a variety of jobs where respiratory protection is required.
A durable, long-lasting respirator, the 6500 Series facepiece is rugged enough to help withstand extreme conditions and long hours, yet comfortable to wear. The proprietary quick latch design offers allows the wearer to easily put the facepiece on and off. The sleek, low-profile design helps to give a worker a wide field of view that better suits compact work spaces and close proximity to coworkers. The overmolded design offers simplified cleaning and maintenance with fewer parts and crevices where dirt can hide.
Breathing hazardous particles, gases and vapors can be harmful to your health. The 3M Rugged Comfort Half Facepiece Reusable Respirator 6500 Series helps reduce exposure to many contaminants when properly fitted and used with approved 3M cartridges and filters.

COMFORTABLE FIT AND QUICK RELEASE. Soft silicone face mask easily conforms to many shapes of face.. This (LARGE) one is large enough to fit comfortably on my big mug. I like masks to ride on top of the bridge of my nose. Remember, it doesn't matter as much how good the customer service is, nor how the shipping and packaging are..
WHAT MATTERS IS.. HOW DOES IT FIT!!
Fit and size is all that matters here.. Measure your face and look at these photo measurements, and compare..
MEASUREMENT INSIDE THE (LARGE) MASK: (see pictures)
Height: 4 1/2" (inches)
Width: 3 1/2" (inches)
Great Mask.. at a Great Price on Amazon.. (however after all this comparison, i decided to go with the 3M7503/37083 (AAD) rather than this one (3M 6503QL) because it fit a little better and has less detail on the front of it to catch and trap sawdust.)
HOW DOES IT FIT.. Check your measurements. I tried several masks and sent back the ones that didn't fit right. (The ones third party "not" Amazon, i had to pay return shipping) So buyer beware, try to get the right fit the first time. ALSO.. buy a size up from the one you think. I tried to show photos with measurements to help. This is the mask i feel the most comfortable in. It's a large, which fits up over the bridge of my nose nice and comfortably.
CONCLUSION: Even though the fit and silicone is great, and even though the straps pull the mask evenly up to the face, the straps on the front collect dust in the crannies, so I'd recommend the 3M Large Half Facepiece Reusable Respirator 7503/37083(AAD),
For occasional use I would advise getting. A cheaper one. The disposable 3M masks are great too for the price and the filters last for a long time (you can always change the pre-filter once it's clogged).
There seems to be a lot of confusion about which filters need adapters or retainers. Per the 3M instructions,
1)The 6000 series filters needs cartridges, and so does the 7093. These cartridges attach to the mask.
2)The 2000 series filters attach to the mask directly without needing anything extra
3)The 5N11 and 5P71 need the Retainer 501 to attach to the mask.
I've attached photos of the instructions - hopefully this clarifies some confusion. I would think these rules apply to the other 3M masks as well.
PS I have long hair and it tends to get in the way when i go to put the strap around my neck, and i wear blue tooth earbuds when working so i have to take them off before i put the neck straps on and reverse for off.
