I just got this in the mail today. It's fucking awesome, although HC will call me a commie for buying it. I used to collect militaria before I got into locks, haven't really been into it for a long time now but I spied this and had to have it. It's an unissued PBF with original bag and 2 brand new filters. Only cost me about 30 quid aswell, score!! :D

I didn't know where else to put this but gas masks stop you from dying a horrible death so... survival seems appropriate. :mrgreen:

I've got a M95 gas mask, a friend who was in the army brought it home and gave it to me. It looks like this. Image

If your a collector or want to buy one, I'd trade/sell you this one. From what I'm told, its a very good mask.

A couple years back Finnish army upgraded their (our) gasmasks. There has been about a million of the older masks for sale cheap.
I bought one bag without the mask for 3 euros, I´ve seen masks sold for 10 euros.
Atleast the bag looks just like yours, is there a tower logo on the bag & mask?
The button + hole don´t take wear well, mine broke in a couple months.
Its a real treat to run in a gas mask in a forest at summer, especially when wearing 15+ kilos of equipment on you. You should try it!
