3M 6800 series full face respirators come in 3 sizes, Small, Medium and Large. Each of the 3 masks are all the same exact exterior size except for the rubber seal which is mounted to the inside of the product. The rubber face seal dictates the size of each of the masks.
3M 6800 Medium Respirator (Grey)
80% of users
The 3M 6800 Medium respirator fits 80% of the population, and I would argue that most individuals that fit the large respirator, can also fit this respirator. The dimensions of this mask from top to bottom are 7.5 inches with an opening of 5-1/2 inches. From side to side, the width of the opening is roughly 5.5 inches, with the opening being about 4-1/4 inches. Most prople fit the medium size mask, with some leaning towards the Large mask.
3M 6900 Large Respirator (Dark Grey)
15-25% of users
The 3M 6900 Large Full face respirator here is distinguished by the dark grey rubber face seal. The mask openings top to bottom are 7-3/4 inches with an open space of 5-3/4 inches making the mask slightly larger in opening. From side to side the measurements are 5.5 inches with an opening of 4-1/2 inches. When held side to side, the large mask spreads open slightly more, but the differences are subtle. Not like the size differential you see with the small sized mask.
3M 6700 Small Respirator (Light Grey)
5% of users
The 3M 6700 Small Full face respirator here is distinguished by the light grey rubber face seal. The small version of the mask is suitable for small children or individuals of very small head/face size. The opening of the mask top to bottom is roughly 6.5 inches with 5 inches of "opening". From side to side the opening is 5-3/4" with an opening of 3.5". As you can see in the side by side picture of the rear of the mask, the opening, compared to the other masks is quite markedly smaller. This mask really should be classified as "children's size respirator"
