That actually makes a helluva lot of sense.

My experience with this type of CBRN equipment and environments (apart from standardized military training) is limited to drilling oil wells in H2S producing zones. My sense of smell (and subsequently taste) is greatly diminished due to minute H2S exposure and I've been in the position to have to trust my life to this type of equipment. I didn't mean to oversell anything, but when it comes to this type of chemical exposure (which can vary greatly over the span of a few meters), I'd rather have a wet paper towel or ANYTHING more than hope and faith in my toolbox.

It's also worth noting that gases designed for use as chemical weapons or crowd dispersing agents are usually heavier than air (it would be pretty pointless if it just floated up into the ionosphere), so just having awareness of how those heavy gasses are affected by topography and wind is a good leg up in dealing with them in the early moments of exposure.
Grew up out in the Permian Basin. During my school years out there (1960s) we lost a kid or three each summer to H2S. Usually it was in a low lying site where the gas leaked out of a wellhead. Given that some of us liked to ride pumpjacks....

You don't need an air tight seal if you use a hood with a blower or compressor that maintains positive pressure inside.

Something like a portable oxygen concentrator inside a container with the correct filters should work.
