They don't really have a size chart because the expectation is that you'll try on each size to see which one fits the best. The medium is supposed to fit 90% of the population. I seem to remember the small being almost a teen/kid size in my opinion. Big/tall men will probably need a large. Most people I know wear medium masks (not necessarily MSAs though).

Unless you have a huge head, get the medium. If you are a little person, get the small.

Expectation is that if you care in the least about effective respiratory protection you will have a qualitative fit test for the equipment you are buying. (OSHA and NFPA standard is actually an annual fit test).

Scott AV3000Sureseal facepiece size Medium will fit about 94%. Little gals may need a small. Guy with a flesh 5gal bucket jug will a large.

Cover your head with vaseline.

Mix a bucket filled with Plaster of Paris.
Insert head in bucket.

When it hardens, saw plaster in half, (trying not to damage head too badly.)

Use resulting mold to produce a bust of your head.

Send bust to mask company.

You can't... unless you're willing to join a volunteer fire department or some other agency that requires you to wear a respirator. I suppose you could buy a quantitative fit testing kit and learn how to use it, but they're pretty expensive. Qualitative (smell test) fit testing kits are less expensive but aren't really meant for CBRN applications.

if it is an Avon, I would call those Avon sales girls and have them send a hot babe over to measure you.

Ding Dong Avon calling.

Some funny stuff there but:

Any metro area is going to have a Hospital/clinic that does industrial hygiene work for business/industry can does fit test for SCBA, masks, etc. Annual requirement from OSHA for employees to have fit test for each respiratory protection item worn. Clinic should have the adapters for major brands/models if facepieces. May cost you $25. Buying adapter for your facepiece to the Quantifit tester would run you $50-75.

Any legitimate dealer of the SCBA equipment you're buying can do a quantitative fit test for the brand they sell. There are more SCBA used in hazardous industries than in Fire Dept.


<I>Why Avon? They are hardly a pimple on ____ of the US market?</I>
