    I'm looking for a couple of smoke masks or escape hoods.
    So far I've got:

    I'm also wondering if getting other, more sophisticated masks that cover
    chemicals/biological agents would be more useful?

    I'd appreciate it if you can chime in and share your experience

    North makes a good mask. The masks are just that. It's up to you to put what filter you need on them. They are a dual filter one on each side and they screw on. As far as filtering out smoke I would imagine that they would work for a little smoke but they won't do for a full out fire. The masks run around here for about 185.00 a mask. You can find them at most fire suppply houses. Hope this helps a bit.
