British PLCE gas mask bag, DPM, surplus
A sturdy gas mask bag of the British army. PLCE model, this one is made of thick cordura and has a belt loop and an adjustable shoulder strap. Velcro & snap closure on the flap, pretty fast to use and secure too. As far as gas mask cases go, this one is very good, maybe even fit for a camera bag!
NVA NBC coverall SBA-1, surplus
From the old stocks of the dead and partially buried DDR comes this rubber overall. If nothing else, the East Germans surely were the masters of nasty rubber!
Finnish M05 gas mask pouch
A gas mask pouch of the new Finnish M05 load carrying system.
British ballistic pelvic protector, MTP, surplus
British army groin protectors of the modern era - these hide your junk behind soft protective materials and MTP camouflage, and are pretty horrible to wear. That's probably why you don't see many of them in actual use. Fits on the British body armour or any belt-like thingie.
Tasmanian Tiger Wrist Office
When you don't have the time to go through various pockets to access a map or other frequently used notes, practice has shown that the most easily accessible place is your supporting forearm. Here's a handy piece to keep sniper stuff organized. It also works as a wrist coach for sporty folks.
Savotta reinforced back support
Alumiunium reinforced back support insert for the Savotta Kevyt Rajapartio and Jääkärireppu backpacks. The riveted aluminium rails keep the backpack from deforming and gives additional support when carrying heavy and cumbersome loads, thus increasing your comfort.
Finnish snow camo trousers, surplus
Old Finnish army snow camouflage uniform halves! Not a very common sight, these were found from a pile of stuff called our "movie wardrobe".
Särmä TST Camouflage cloak
A simple and multifunctional personal camouflage net. Designed for wear as a outermost layer over clothing and gear and for use as a small camouflage net to conceal positions and equipment. The strong mesh fabric makes it possible for the end-user to attach extra camouflage materials for a 3D effect.
Finnish Cap Badge
Official Finnish issue cap badge. Various branches and special groups available!
If Soviet rubber socks aren't your thing when it comes to gas masks, check out this modern offering from Germany.
First things first: these are officially unsuitable for safety use. Despite CE markings and meeting all the relevant standards like EN 136, we are not allowed to sell these as protective equipment for hazardous environments.
That said, the face pieces are factory new and still have protective talcum powder on them. The condition is NIB. Expiration dates for the filters are long gone (but in the 2000's), but they use the worldwide 40 mm thread standard. Unlike the suspicious Soviet masks we used to sell with filters, these do not contain asbestos or any other nasty stuff.
The design is very common: a rubber face piece is tightened against the face with five adjustable rubber straps with metal buckles. A single lens offers an uninterrupted field of vision and the air intake vents blow off any fog as you breathe in, so you actually see things while wearing this.
The air outlet can be rotated to different sides and above the filter you'll find a speaker box: while you will sound funny when speaking to others, they are able to understand what you say. A neck strap can be used to keep the mask in a high ready condition.
In the original factory box you will find:
- Filter (expired)
- Instruction manual (9 languages, English included)
- Carrying pouch (Russian made, probably added after these left the factory)
