Sellout Woot has a link to CH Kadels and a deal on Finnish military gas masks (http://chkadels.com/Finnish-Gas-Mask-With-Filter?sourcecode=CKWOOT) for $10 plus $5 flat rate shipping for up to at least three with coupon code: ckwoot

These are supposed to be brand new with sealed filters. I have no idea if they are any good but you can't buy filters for that. They also have Czech masks and Israeli civilian masks for $20 each plus shipping.

This is a Woot deal so it's only for 24 hours or until they run out.

You know every bit as much as I do. You can follow the link but there isn't much information. I know Amazon sells Israeli military masks for $35 and they sell new NATO filters although there is no telling if they fit a Finnish mask. That should be all that goes bad short of the rubber splitting.

Was looking at this http://www.amazon.com/Israeli-Civilian-Mask-Nato-Filter/dp/B0002XJ2OU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1318751503&sr=8-1

Wondering how well it works if you are wearing glasses.

That's another issue for me with SHTF, glasses. I need some sturdier glasses, the silhouette things will break in no time if things got rough.

I work for an industrial supply company and I know just a lil more than the regular person.

You should shop better. Cheaper Than Dirt! regular price: $11.97

Plus we are talking Finnish, not Israeli. I took like 30 seconds and found this:

" Canadian, Finnish and Swedish gas masks= 60MM
NATO= 40MM"


Canadian, Finnish and Swedish gas masks NATO adapters = $15.95 (http://www.armygasmasks.com/60mm-to-40mm-Filter-Adapter-p/aaagas-11.htm)

I found this (http://approvedgasmasks.com/israeli-military.htm) in another 30 seconds for $150 and they STILL said : EFFECTIVE only when within expiration.

So please post the link to the mask you found for $35.

IF you found this (http://www.amazon.com/Israeli-Civilian-Mask-Nato-Filter/dp/tags-on-product/B0002XJ2OU) then please delete this thread.

My life is worth more than $10.

For gas mask, my preference is a single visor for visibility.

New for $10 vs used for $12 where did you study math?

Those wanting to dump a lot of money into a mask should talk to a CBRN guy in the military. Hopefully he will be able to lay out how long the mask and filter will be able to hold to up each specific attack. Without a chemical unit with decon following you around, they arent exactly the most useful item and will more than likely prolong your death by a small amount of time. Pretty much the only thing it will take for long periods of time are CS. Even the new suits done have a long life after you break the seal to wear them.

This is very true. It all depends on the threat(s) that you've decided apply to your situation. I'm not in the military defending the Fulda Gap and don't expect to be subject to a massive nerve gas attack. If I did I might drop a couple of grand on military grade NBC gear but I just don't see that as a threat to me. The first time that I bought a mask was because I lived next to a freeway and the threat that I prepped for was a freeway accident causing a chemical spill (chlorine gas etc). The same would apply to those living near train tracks. Those bugging in or bugging out from social unrest might face tear gas and a mask might give them a brief advantage while hiding from or fleeing the mobs. Neither of those situations is likely to require a $900 mask that you will never own (one for each family member) because you have car payments to make - because you're not sticking around to fight pitched battles in a NBC environment. As I see it enough $20 Israeli masks for yourself, the wife, and the kids will get you by long enough to load the kids in the car and get away from any realistic threat. The one you have on hand is always more useful than the fancy one that you keep telling yourself that you'll buy one day. ;)

On the other hand if you feel that the primary threat to your family is a nerve gas attack or a massive airborne bio agent attack then you should probably spend a lot more.

I'm kinda partial to the M-15. Popular NATO threads and you can get a variety of new filters easily online. Very comfortable to wear and quick/easy to put on.

I have a couple that seem ancient that I keep around for the sole purpose of abusing them to see how well/long they last...just out of curiosity.

I think most threats would be particulates and gases/odors/fumes but contagions or anything weaponized would surely be a different story.

Unless you have full threat detection and decon capabilities following you around....well, you know.

Well I'd go with the Israeli M-15 gas mask any day of the week. I used to have one and it is very comfortable and easy to use. The drinking tube is also a plus.

I was told that a gask mask is so you don't die while you're running for your life out of the area. Also, the filters expire apparently which is why we were told to keep ours in the original packing until needed.

They do, I work at industrial supply company and even the construction style:

If stored unpackaged, the air will gradually reduce the lifespan of the catridge.
