The 6500QL Series Half Face Respirator Mask from 3M features a quick-release feature, making it easy to put on and take off. The 6500QL Series has a very comfortable silicon face seal and a durable, low-profile design that makes it perfect for job sites that require wearing a respirator for long periods of time. Another good option would be a 3M 7500 Respirator. Also, make sure to check out the 3M Full Face Respirator and the Half Face Respirator that offer the highest level of protection.
An improved exhalation valve helps keep the 6500QL mask cool, while the quick-release feature allows a worker to doff and don the respirator one-handed. Customized fit is achieved by adjusting the head harness assembly and elastic face adjustment straps. All 3M bayonet-style twist-on filters and cartridges will work with the 3M 6500QL Half Face Respirator.
When choosing your mask size, take into consideration your past experience purchasing hats or glasses. If you typically purchase larger or smaller sizes based on the size and shape of your face, consider doing so when selecting the size of your mask. Usually, customers with large faces or prominent noses use the large size, while the rest usually use the medium size. 3M suggests the medium mask will fit about 80% of wearers.

I paint / finish drywall for a living, this respirator is the best one I've used so far. This is a very comfortable mask and quick release is a great feature. Would highly recommend.
This is an awesome mask. I am a welder and I work in a pretty contaminated environment. The best thing about this mask is obviously the quick release. I don't have to take off my hood, or any of the other safety items I have to wear, in order to talk to someone, or get a breath of fresh air. Would highly recommend for welders or for folks who work in an industrial setting. Stay safe y'all.
I bought a medium mask for the shooting range as I sometimes found myself coughing from the smoke, even in an open air range, and was concerned about inhaling lead particles. I don't consider myself a large guy but found the medium size mask rather tight on my nose - maybe my nose is too big. Anyway, no problem the medium sized mask fits my wife, who I had earlier assumed would need a small size. Living in a warm climate, the mask does get a bit hot outside but I can hardly smell the gun smoke and have no more coughing after a session at the range. The quick release on this model is worth having. Would prefer it if the particulate filters were a more neutral color that went with the mask instead of shocking pink but thumbs up for this product.
I purchased the 6500 QL based on a recommendation from a friend. The mask is comfortable, easy to use and I love the quick-release feature. I wear glasses and the quick release allows me to easily fit the mask to conform to my glasses. Highly recommend!
USED THE MASK FOR SPRAYING CAMPBELL'S MAGNALAC. THIS MASK FITS WELL, AND THE QUICK RELEASE FEATURE WAS A PLEASURE TO USE BECAUSE IT REALLY FUNCTIONS AS ADVERTISED. I USED THE 3M 6006 CARTRIDGE AND BREATHING WAS ODOR FREE AND EASY. I GIVE THE ASSEMBLY 5 STARS.
After too many years of woodworking and leaving my shop with a dust-induced cough, I finally decided to get a respirator. This mask is very comfortable to wear, even with safety glasses and earmuff headphones. It's lightweight and doesn't chafe or pinch anywhere. I appreciate the quick-release lever too for getting a quick drink or stopping to have a conversation. I recommend this to anyone who works with wood or MDF and creates lots of dust! I have medium to large sized face and head, and the medium mask fits me just fine.
Great mask for easy open and closing if working in hot climate. Latch that goes around head is not a snap style but a mere plastic loop-hope it lasts. Nose frame is solid but gets in view if wear glasses but not bad. Overall good quality.
