Best masks off of Amazon?
By - SkyFullofHat
The problem with Amazon is that even if Company X is offering a real version of Product 123, another company might be offering a knock-off. Those products get mixed at the facility, and you can't know if you got Company X's genuine Product 123. If you know of a company that's selling a good product, it's much safer to order directly from the company.
I figured there’s something like that going on behind the scenes too. In that case, got any recommendations of suppliers to order from?
I ordered my stuff from Grainger. Two different state universities I worked at always ordered from them, over the course of many, many years. I figure if the state vetted them and still uses them for safety and lab equipment, they're probably reliable. They aren't especially cheap, though, and generally deal in bulk(ish) purchases.
They also do still have shipment delays. I'm waiting on a box of masks that should have been here on July 8, and they're now telling me August 8. I had a purchase canceled, as well, due to not being able to stock it the way they thought they would.
I would honestly recommend ordering directly from a medical supply company just because there is so many third party vendors on Amazon.

Do you own a gas mask yet?
Lol not a full face mask but I have half-face respirators. Not really what I’m looking for though.
Just making sure the box was checked haha. Don’t think for a second there won’t be another more deadly virus that requires one in your lifetime
Oh guaranteed. My problem with that is just being able to stock multiple filters as that can get pretty expensive. I’m gettin’ there haha.
Where does one buy a gas mask ?
[Amazon](https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00QXU94B2) of course lol
Just don't. Amazon cannot guarantee genuine product nor do they even try.
