Best Respirator for sawdust

I am getting to the point that I am tired of using those $4 white masks with the 'cool vent' in the front from home depot.

I want to look into Respirator masks. But I don't know what's important aspects to look for in them. I saw some all purpose masks. Is that what I get? I didn't see anything for saw dust… are they out there? Do you recommend those masks? Or are they not worth it because of the filter replacements?

All thoughts are welcome

Those RZ masks look neat but they are WAYYYY overpriced. The Eclipse is a better mask for a better price.

When it's all said and done, the best mask is the one that you'll actually wear. The most effective mask in the world doesn't do squat when it's sitting on the shelf.

Your last sentence says it all, however. For a measly $10 more the RZ is a far more comfortable mask IMO, which means there is a far greater chance that I would wear it regularly.

Can't debate that!
