From behind the Iron Curtain, huge quantities of these M76 Gas Masks were produced in preparation for a potential war with the West. Designed for use by the civilian population against nuclear fallout. A very unusual style, and sure to be an eye-catching piece of your cold war collection. Unlike most Gas Masks on the market, here you get the Complete Set: Mask, 40mm filter cartridge, cartridge cover and carry bag.

Every stitch offers up incredible Cold War insights.

These Masks had to be manufactured very efficiently to be able to protect as many civilians as possible. The rubberized canvas is the same type used in tents of the era. The trim is made from locally-sources sheep velour. Filtering technology had to be very simple and easy to use even by citizens not trained in its use.
