  1. Hi there...

    I just like to share something about one of the Survival Bags. The Harsh Bag.

    The ‘Hazmat’ or ‘Harsh Bag’ is designed to allow you to survive in case of a NBC – nuclear, biological or chemical attack. Toxins or radioactive substances are present in the air either from a dirty bomb or other air/water agent deployed. A chemical reactor could have exploded. Whatever the reason, there are many dangers that can occur and you are at risk quite quickly.

    While not something people like to consider on a day to day basis, the threat of such an attack is always present.Your Hazmat/Harsh Bag will should include

    ● Rubber gloves
    ● Hazmat Suit
    N95 Mask
    ● Adult Diaper
    ● Gas Mask

    All of these objects come together to form a separate environment for your body and allow you to survive extremely hazardous regions. The rubber gloves protect your hands and ensure an effective seal over the hazmat suit where you may be lifting or moving objects that could damage your suit. The Hazmat suit will protect the entirety of your body from radioactive substances and biological weapons or threat. The N95 mask and gas mask will ensure the air you breathe is clean and safe. The Adult diaper will ensure that you can excrete safely without having to leave the safety of your suit.

    The gas mask would be of limited use in many HazMat situtions you would neeed a SCBA in order to survive ... additionally you would need a "chemical sniffer" to let you know what chemicals are involved and where a cooln zone is located... wind plumes and decontamination requirements maek this a scenario that takes extensive training as well as equipment to handle appropiately... YMMV

    SCBA would be ideal, but if not necessary I would want at least an N100, preferably a P100 with exhalation valve...

    ...which is why my half-face and full-face masks are all P100. I just don't see the sense of allowing that pesky 5% in.

    LOL. Based on the thread title; I thought this might be about a mean wife. ;)

    The picture shows someone wearing a cartridge respirator inside a sealed suit. You will only have the air inside the suit. When I was on the ERT team at the chemical plant we wore SCBA inside the sealed suits. You only got about 20 minutes before heat stress takes you down. Not sure what application a prepper would have for this equipment. You need a team to use this equipment.

    First, and so far only post. We sent him a note about linking to unregistered (with SM owner) vendor sites, and so far, no naswer nor even a visit back to see what might have happened. I've left the links active so that anyone can see his products. That said, it won't take much thinking to see the problems those packages present, and the inadequacy of some parts of the "kits" for survival. For now, the thread is closed.
