LogansRun I don’t think those half-mask filters are any more longlived than the disposable ones – they are both comprised of the same material. When they get wet through breathing they start to lose effectiveness.

With a re-usable half mask unless you diinfect it at the end of every day it is not going to protect properly, and may introduce the virus into your home if you disinfect it indoors. Given that the major expense is the filters whether you use disposable or re-usable masks, it seems to make sense to go with disposables, unless the half mask gives you a much better fit.
