15 reviews for Bandit™ Scarf

  1. Respro Admin

    A great product that I have used many times. Highly recommended for dirty, sandy conditions

  2. Klaus

    Had my bandit red diamond scarf for I think 21 or 22 years, it still works 100%. this product is amassing and important, is fits. Hit the summer ….

  3. Scott

    I purchased my Bandit Scarf while working as a close protection specialist in Kabul, Afghanistan, a city with some of the worst air quality in the world. Prior to my purchase (please, excuse this crude description), I would blow my nose and black gunk would fill the tissue. Wearing my Bandit Scarf eliminated this unpleasantness. Thank you for a great product. I’m preparing to head back there, and will be ordering a new one (or two) soon.

  4. Debbie

    I purchased the bandit scarf and although I do like it, it is hard to tie. The scarf could be a little longer to go around the head for a secure fit.

    RESPRO’NSE: “Happy to hear you like the bandit. The fitting depends on the size of your head there will be less material to tie”

  5. Andrew

    These are very good. They’re quite comfortable to wear & the adjustable nose clip doesn’t “bite” into the nose. It does keep road debris & insects out of the nose & mouth which is great. In the winter they do keep the nose & mouth warm as it traps the warm air being breathed out.

  6. Corinna

    I have tested the scarf under the worst conditions possible, I guess: We are currently in China! The air pollution here is sometimes so bad that you can actually feel the dirt in your mouth. So I used the mask on an almost daily basis last winter, and even though wearing a mask is never pleasant, this one is comfortable to wear. I also like the design, and it earns me many a puzzled look. A proper city bandit!

  7. Noora

    The Bandit Scarf works nicely and most of our customers are happy with it. The only thing we hear constantly from our female customers is that the colors are so strong. In Finland people do not want to stand out from the mass so customers ask for colors like, natural white or beige and pink rose.

    Some motorcycling people have complaint that because of the knot in the neck, the scarf can be difficult to wear with a helmet. Most are happy with the product though.

    RESPRON’SE: “We use the darker colors because bikers usually prefer them. However we are bringing colour into our new range of Masks so the Bandit just might have a few new additions coming up too!”

  8. Greg

    Great product, only why not make it with velcro in back like the extreme mask for ease of done & undoning it. Then it would be perfect for use on the motorcycle. I will have a seamstress to sew on some velcro. It needs this for ease of use.

    RESPRO’NSE: Thanks for your comments and thoughts on adding some Velcro to the Bandit Scarf. Unlike the rest of the Respro® Mask range the Bandit scarf is made of cotton so therefore does not stretch. This means that each user requirement will be different. The tie solution seems to be the best solution we have found to date but we are always looking to improve our products and will take it into consideration

    Overall the product has lived up to my expectations and I am happy that I have had the choice of an affordable product that has quality. As for the things that give me a little trouble: It presses my nose down in the middle making my nostrils smaller and thus not permitting me to breathe as I’d like. This in results in fatigue. I may have to note that 1) I ride a trekking bike, so my riding position is leaning forward in comparison to a city bike and 2) My nose is not tiny;)

    RESPRO’NSE- ” The mask should be resting on the bridge of your nose and nowhere near the nostrils. Please see our video on how to correctly fit a Respro mask here:

    The other difficulty I have is with the knot and my long hair. I need to tie it under my hair (because if I tie it over my hair, it slips out of place) and I end up grabing a lot of hair in the knot.

    RESPRO’NSE- ” Yes, this is the correct way to wear the mask under your hair not on top”

    I need to say that overall the product was better than I expected it to be and it’s something I would reccomend for an affordable but not “cheap” solution.

    I bought one around 10 to 12 years ago for motorcycle use. Looking for another now. Mine is so weathered it has leather tied to the back so i can do it up (velcro good idea) only mistake is I put it through the wash at 9 years old and it didn’t handle that to well but it is still going. Great mask!

  11. Barbara-Lynn

    I have chemical sensitivities so I’ve carried my mask with me wherever I’ve gone the past 15 years. I Love It!! It’s amazing how much pollution it blocks out. And it’s comfortable too. I’ve had a little issue with the knot in the back, but the benefits totally out weight a small inconvenience. And I also love that I can wash it. Thank you so much for creating this simply way of avoiding unhealthy air.

  12. Adrian

    I use daily and its really effective in London on my cycle commute, just wish it was a little longer at the back of the head. Its quite hard to tie if you have a average sized head!

    RESPRO’NSE: Thanks for your feedback. We haven’t heard this from other customers but I will pass your comment on to our design team for consideration. Much appreciated.

  13. Tracey Turner

    As great as this mask is, it would be even better if there were different sizes to accommodate head sizes, nose bridge size etc. I have needed to flatten out the ends of the nose clip so that the mask will sit better without having a big gap on the bridge of my nose. RESPRO’NSE ” Hi Tracey, thanks for your review. The design of the nose clip is exactly for the purpose you describe- it can be moulded to the shape of the users nose those helping them get the required seal. The material part of the scarf is generous enough for all head shapes and sizes and 99% out of 100% clients who buy the scarf have not said any different. With only a 2 star we think you are a little hard with your marking 😉 but we appreciate you taking the time to write- thanks again”

  14. Smyggy

    I’ve had mine for donkey’s years and am waiting until 5pm to order a new one. As with two other reviews on here- not quite big enough and I am a pinhead – please listen to your cusotmers and make a bigger size. Mine has been runover by a car and survived, though!

  15. russbrownuk

    It’s too short at the back and to be honest it’s annoying, it really is a big issue. I notice you have been advised of this and yourselves stated you would speak with the DESIGNERS ! …..LOL. please just add a bit more length. There I am a designer.
