No problems....and I have a fat head that barely squeezes into my helmet!

I was amazed at the mask's ability to filter dust. You can't even smell it when wearing the mask, and following close behind another bike on a dusty trail.

Getting ready to move back to VA where the pollen can and will kick your ass. I usually do a balaclava but it does have its limitations, and not super comfortable when the temps are up.

And I am also a member of the "Gigantic Melon Club".

I found this site:

I've just ordered that rzmask. I expect it to perform well and be sufficiently compatible with wearing a mx helmet.
Fingers crossed it beats the bandana.

I have a respro Techno that works really well, or it did until I switched to a Shoei Qwest which had a lot less space between the chin bar and my face so it doesn't fit now.
For reference I have bad asthma and allergies and wore it when I started commuting.

Lived and rode in Indonesia and even outside of a city the diesel soot was disturbing. At the end of the day I'd see it built up in the seams of my pants, etc.

Does anyone wear a mask or some kind of filter when they ride? Would a surgical mask or the like even be worth the trouble.. even filter anything when the wind from riding is slamming it?

Maybe you can modify one of your maxi-pads.

Been using this mask for a couple of weeks.
It rocks. Enables me to breath freely. Changed the riding experience.

Disadvantages:
-lacks the multifunctionality of a bandana (but can be combined with one)
-makes sipping from the camelbak cumbersome
-does not fit all kinds of offroad helmets (forget it if the helmet has an in-build nose protection).

Final judgement
For hayfever persons a real treat and a must have.
For all: it blocks most if not all particles so in the larger end it may well extend your total riding days, ain't that sweet
