    Got a NIB Scott FRR, its similar to my GSR but uses 40mm filters instead. Pretty happy about it.

    QUESTION:I just bought a respirator/gas mask. Are the filters any good? How long will the filter last if I need to use it? Storage Life Provided they are properly sealed, the filters are good until the expiration printed on the packaging. This may be 1 year, 5 years, 10 years or even...

    Hello Everybody I'm still pretty new to SurvivalistBoards.com but it came to my attention that gas masks are getting harder and harder to come by. I'm not talking about the brand new modern ones that are extremely expensive but the military ones that are still compatible for modern filter that...

    I want to get a gas mask, or multiple. But I don't know which ones I should get because I'm not sure which filters I can use. Let's consider a few masks. First the Israeli Civilian mask. I know it takes NATO 40mm, but are all NATO filters interchangeable with each other? I also think I read...

    Sorry for the lengthy post - but I'm hoping for some help from fellow preppers caring for their family but also prepare not for the end of the world - but for realistic outcomes. We are a family of four with two kids, 12 and 9 years old, living in a larger European city (pop 2M). Distance to...

    DIY Gas mask Saw somewhere on tv or Internet assembly of a DIY gas mask made from cut plastic bottles, ground up charcoal briquets, other common household items. Anyone see this & have a reference? tnx

    I have a full NBC kit including an SGE400 mask and was wondering what the best way to care for the silicone seal is, as well as general maintenance of the mask. Does anyone have any experience with this? Also, considering the cost of filters, what does everyone do or having a mask "ready to...

    Hi guys! Been a while since I posted here, still been preparing in any little way I can. I picked up a really good looking full-face respirator at a thrift store the other week. It looked to be in good repair, airtight, no obvious damage. It's an MSA mask, and I heard they made masks for...

    Just wanted to check and see what y'all thought about the Drager M65 mask. It comes with a new NBC 40mm NATO filter. http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/product/MLT-9112#Reviews I used to own an Israeli mask but sold it a few years back as well as my M17 mask. I'm basically looking for 2 good...

    If anyone's interested here's my respirator and misc NBC collection. I collect masks more for the history behind them than anything else. http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLDF4273C6266654CB Here's a Blog I'll try and keep updated with some basic information and history on the masks...

    Next on my list (after purchasing my Big Berkley) is gas masks. However, I am so confused! What are your suggestions? I live about 20 miles NW of Atlanta, so I am thinking I need to prepare for both a nuclear, pandemic, and biological event. I would like one mask that can do it all if...

    Just checked CTD for some NATO filters for my preps and got a sticker shock. They use to be around $13 for 3. Now they are $39.97 with shipping + tax that's one heck of a jump. I called and asked for the reason. The customer service rep accessed the item number and said they are now really hard...

    The following article appeared in Pelastustieto [I've translated it as Rescue which is an approximation, literally it's RescueKnowledge] which is (I quote their website http://www.pelastustieto.fi/site/index.php/in-english): "a trade journal and a joint mouthpiece for the fire and rescue service...

    Over the years I have had a difficult time justifying buying gas mask and other biological and chemical survival gear. The nearest chemical plants are about 100 miles south of my location. The nearest biological and chemical warfare targets are between 2 - 5 hours drive north and south, which...

    Anyone know where one can obtain filters in 60mm for the M61 Finnish gas mask? I saw some cheap on several websites, but I believe they are out of date, and even if not, I don't want my lungs FUBAR from breathing radionuclides and H1N1 through something as effective as a coffee filter. I can't...

    I was thinking today on my daily run that, "Thanks to people that have become survival concious in the past month or so (because of the nuclear reactor in Japan,"refering mostly to people on the west coast and are concerned about radiation) that have begun to stockpile on things like radiation...

    So I have a finnish surplus gas mask, but I do not know what kind of filters will protect against what. First, the gas mask is 60mm, but i DO have a 40mm converter. I am thinking about buying the Swiss Gas Mask Filter NBC surplus filters from Maine Military Supply. I need to know what they...

    My wife gave me grief about purchasing a M40 last month because it was in her eyes.."silly." For the past year, the house has had varying degrees of odor. Me and a friend crawled under the house to investigate and found the septic line had been ruptured for at least 1 year. My buddy had been...
