The GP-5 is a Soviet-manufactured gas mask, designed during the Cold War to protect civilians from nuclear fallout. It features the single-filter, sealed glass-eye SHM-62u face piece. The rubber shell stretches to form a tight seal around the users head to protect against radioactive, biological, and chemical agents. This package includes the original pieces distributed to fallout shelters from 1962 - 1989: a face piece, filter, anti-fogging lens inserts, and an oliver drab carrying bag.
Why choose this gas mask?
There are two types of respirators: Air-purifying respirators, also known as “gas masks”, which decontaminate the air by forcing it through a filter, and air-supplied respirators, which deliver fresh oxygen from a fully-sealed tank.
