I've been using these masks for several years.
Now I can't seem to find the replacement filters.
Seems they've been discontinued.
Googled and Yahoo-ed and Bing-ed.
Now I need recommendations for a different mask.
Preferably something similar.
(that is....with reasonably priced replacement filters)
This is the highest-ranked mask on Amazon:
