Comments on Beard Bros

Mike Taylor // March 17, 2019 It just happens that there is now a respirator designed for wildfire fighting that works really well with beards and other facial hair: the Fair Air fire mask. A great Australian invention that removes over 99.94% of particulates. (0.3 micron, 100% for 0.7 micron and above) NOTE: It is not a replacement for SCBA as required in low oxygen/ toxic environments. So if you only fight fires outdoors there is no need to be clean shaven. Wildfires can still be dealt with by wild bearded guys.
