Ok so why is the full face mask so much more than the hood? Looks like the hood protects better. Lastly if im painting outside do i still need this system?
Thank you

Some have cooler air, the Hobby air gets warm, but you will only be using it a few minutes at a time. Do a Google search and pick the one you like. Get one with a hood, not a half face mask. Get extra lens covers for the hood, only takes a few minutes to mess up the lens. Urethane paints require hardener which has isocyanates, which require supplied air. For everthing else I use a charcoal mask and replace the cartriges when necessary. As for the "suit", I use a tyvec jacket mainly to protect my arms.

Yes you need the fresh air supplied system even if you spray outside. I painted a tractor in March of this year outside using a standard respirator holding my breath when down wind and still got enough of it through the respirator I'm just now loosing the cough. I will not paint another tractor without the air supplied system.

The hood is nothing more than a frame covered by tyvec. The face mask is made to fit like a mask, that is tighter and more complex, made to fit. I suppose you could use that instead of the hood, but I have never tried one. Yes you need it outside. You may be exposed to less fumes, but they hang over you in no wind and swirl around you in a light wind, so you still are exposed to them. As a test get a can of oven cleaner, which you simply cannot use without a mask. Put your back to the wind and spray, you will smell the oven cleaner.
