    Just out of curiosity, are you getting chem suits to go along with your NBC masks?

    In my readings, gas masks have a very limited use.

    Yes I already have the chem suits in my area we have alot of chem related traing. About a year ago we had a tractor trailer crash and burn up it was hauling plutonium nitrate. So we got loaded down with some extra unused suits.

    If you cannot afford Chem suits simply use cheap foul weather suits with hoods. Tape them over your mask, use rubber gloves, and plastic booties. Don't forget to decontaminate prior to coming into your home. You do want to bring any "hot" dust back in with you. We have an outside "shower" that we can set up if needed. Fallout is not a death sentence if you let it cool prior to going outside and be careful not to breath it especially.

    Are they the civilian Israeli masks or the military (M15) gas masks? If they are the civilians, you are paying too much. Also, be very cautious about the filters -they are most often outdated. They will work in a pinch, and probably for most non-lethal uses, but if you are trusting your life on a mask you should get new filters that are not expired.

    You can get great deals on the M15 masks, they range from $25 to about $40 and are well worth the cost if they are new. The Israeli masks are all NATO with the 40mm threads. The M15 has better eyelets for greater visibility and a drinking tube as opposed to the civilian model.

    They are the M15 military mask, I also ordered some extra filters that are not out dated. I was worried about the same thing get new mask and the filters be outdated by 10 years.

    Yeah, lol. And some are all written in Hebrew from the 80's, so...lol it makes it interesting. My Hebrew is really rusty, even though Aramaic is more my specialty.
