I'm troubled...

Re: New dust mask *LINK* ()

David Bassett
While they seem exactly what I'm looking for (comfortable & low profile), I'm troubled by the marketing of these masks. Why, with all those laboratory tests, do these masks not carry an official NIOSH rating? (These may qualify in every way, even exceed the standards, but the website information is exactly what a scammer would build. Extensive unofficial certification without any mention of the official standards that could get them in legal trouble.)

Does anyone have additional information on this? (I've been unable to find this addressed, but my "google-fu" isn't the strongest.)

ETA: I ask them about NIOSH certs using their website's contact us form. I will report any response.
