    It's good to have a choice in different filtrations. I'm able to switch between them depending on the type of dust, etc., that I will be vacuuming.

    I picked this filter up after I realized the original was not picking up as well as it should have. I swapped out the original 1-layer filter with this one and immediately noticed a difference with suction. I am currently remodeling my home and doing a lot of sanding of drywall, plaster, etc. and often have my shopvac directly connected to my orbital sander, so it was critical to have a filter that could catch the fine dust, which this product does nicely.Yes, it's a little pricey for a filter, but it does state that it's washable, so I am interested to see how it hold up (that's why I only gave it 4/5 stars on quality).If you're going to be doing any type of fine dust pickup, this filter will not disappoint.

    My Rigid vacuum has been a life-saver - it has picked up coal dust, dirt, wasps, lady bugs, bird nests, and more. I have bought 3 filters in the past 10 years. I can knock the dirt out of them after they clog, and get about 3 uses before having to replace the filter. Well worth the money I spent.

    This filter is super durable and so easy to install! Very durable. I've had my Wet Vac for over 3 yrs. and this is the only filter I will get to keep my vac as new!

    In doing a kitchen remodel we started with out regular shop vac filter. After we realized that it was pretty full, I decided to purchase a filter designed for fine dust. This product works great and picks up every little bit of drywall dust. I would recommend this product.

    Fits perfect, has he new integrated end cap (rubber), but seems pricey for what it is.

    This filter performed better then I had expected. I used it to clean out a 150 years of build up of dust,dirt,and coon waste(dryed) in the rafters of an old Church. I never even had to use a dust mask during the entire process. Then using compressed air for cleaning the filter never damaged the cartridge. This is an extrem plus because it allows me to use it over again.

    We use this product in an industrial application. This filter stops the fine dust from re-entering the environment.

    I purchased this filter just for drywall dust. i always seemed to lose some through the exhaust. However, this seems to work just fine.

    I use this filter around the house and yard in my Ridgid shop vac and have no problems with dust exiting the vac.

    I recently installed a pellet stove and, of course, that means I need to clean it out every other day. I have a good shop vac but when I started to vacuum the COLD ashes, my wife said I was blowing pellet ash everywhere around the house. My filter was a single-ply filter that was good for my general garage, cellar and yard work. The fine ash of the pellets needed a three-ply filter and the RIDGID filter fits the bill. Great suction without the ash escaping through the vent. I rated the value as average because the filter is a little pricey. Otherwise, it's what you need to vacuum COLD ashes from your wood stove. Make sure the ashes are COLD.

    I've owned a RIGID Shop Vac for four years. It has been an invaluable tool in cleaning up basement, garage and patio. I've used the blower feature to remove light snow from cars and driveways. My original filter became musty since I neglected to clean it after vacuuming up a minor baement flood. The replacement filter was delivered quickly and the Shop Vac continues to function like new. I would hightly recommend this product and high tech filters to any conscientious homeowner.

    This filter has been used again and again to capture sand, drywall, spackle, spiderwebs, and traces of insulation. It does a wonderful job preventing the dust from recirculating into the air. I feel confident that this filter is helping to keep my breathing air cleaner. It lasted through some tough jobs and could have lasted even longer, if I hadn't vacuumed up some questionable materials.

    These filters have remarkable dust controlling ability. We use it in a high humidity environment which has a tendency to cause dust to cake on the filters. These filters have a weave that allows air to pass thru while restricting the dust. We are able to knock off the dust and continue using the filters. I highly recommend.

    I bought this with the intent to clean up drywall dust, and it did not disappoint. From what I could see, it trapped it all. I had to clean it once through my project, and had no problems with it ripping or tearing when washing with water. Also fits the RIDGID 6 gallon shop vac model that is not available online, but can be found in some stores.

    Excellent purchase for the money. Very durable. I had an issue alliging the table base with the top as the screw holes didn't allign perfectly. I tried rotating the base in all directions without sucess. Be prepared to have one strong person pull the legs together while the other inserts and tightens the screws.

    The difference I saw after replacing my 3 year old filter with this one was unbelievable. Better suction and much better filtration.
