The Dus-T Mask on Invention USA Show
Filtered T-Shirt Mask - Season 2 Episode 2The Dus-T is a cool invention seen on Invention USA back in November of 2012. It's basically a patented t-shirt that has a built-in face mask around the collar. At a moments notice you can deploy the mask and protect yourself from dust, wind, airborne pollutants and extreme cold.
|Many Uses For The Dus-T t shirt with Built-in Face Mask|
The more I think about the Dus-T shirts, the more uses I keep coming up with to buy a few of these. For instance I have been in the Tree Industry for several years as a High Climber. Most of the time it's not so bad working 100+ ft. off the ground with the standard protective helmet that does a decent job protecting your eyes, ears and face. That is until the wind starts blowing and covers you in chips. You move to the other side of the log your sectioning off and instead of the chips, you get gassed out by the saw itself. Your only alternative was to bring up a traditional throw away protective mask up with you (ya right) or just hold your breathe during those critical cuts. There is not a single Tree Company out there that could easily see the benefits of wearing a Dust-T t-shirt for all it's climbers and groundsmen.
