The CM-6M Tactical Gas Mask has a facepiece of tough bromobutyl rubber (CBRN-compliant) for maximum resistance to TIC/CWA contaminants. The full-face respirator’s inner mask is made from a special hypoallergenic compound that ensures excellent tightness and avoids exhaled air contact with the visor to prevent fogging. It also reduces carbon dioxide(CO2) content in the mask’s inner space, which together with its favorable inhalation/exhalation breathing resistance, decreases the physiological burden for the user—providing more comfortable and practical all-day use.
The integrated speech diaphragm ensures at least 95% intelligibility of speech, allowing for easy communication with other members of your party. The mask is equipped with a five-point rubber-textile head harness to ensure a snug and lasting fit.
The CM-6M CBRN gas mask is produced in one size. To ensure proper functioning, the user’s face must be smooth, free of facial hair, sideburns and other hindrances at the points of contact.
The tactical gas mask is compatible with the 3M Safety 6878 Spectacle Kit (sold separately), with simple installation for those who are vision impaired and prefer not to wear contacts.
The filter is fitted to the mask by screwing to the left or right inhalation chamber. The unused chamber (without filter) is sealed with an inhalation chamber plug. It is necessary to ensure the plug is properly screwed and tightened.
Inhalation chambers of the CM-6 mask are ONLY compatible with Rd 40 x 1/7” thread in accordance with the EN 148-1 standard.
Selection of a suitable filter depends on the type and concentration of anticipated toxic agent. The CM-6 tactical mask equipped with a TIC or CWA filter is only safe for use in an environment containing at least 19.5% oxygen. The principles of filter selection and application are described in the filter user guides.
The CM-6 tactical gas mask may be used in class 1 explosive environments only. The CM-6 mask meets all of the requirements for class 3 of the EN 136 standard. It’s a great choice for riot gear or as a riot control gas mask.
|1 size||bromine-butyl rubber|

The CM-6 tactical gas mask must be stored in a dark, cool and dust-free place free from sudden temperature changes. The storage room should be ventilated regularly. Temperatures may vary between 10°C and 25°C within relative humidity up to 65%. Full face gas masks must not be exposed to radiant heat or sunshine. Fuels, solvents, lubricants and other inflammable substances, including chemicals, must not be stored with masks. Moreover, there must not be any electrical machines or appliances that produce sparks or discharges during operation (ozone creation).
Avoid deformation of the rubber parts of the facepiece and internal CBRN gas mask during storage.
Great civilian mask
I worked in hazmat for many years, and wore a respirator almost daily when I did. So, with that in mind, I was actually quite impressed with this mask (as I could not easily find the style I used to wear on the market for civilians that wasn't crazy expensive.) Love the large field of view, and was very impressed with the speech diaphragm which seems to rival what I remember of my old 3M mask. Also love that it is compatible with camelback bladders (it comes with a canteen, by the way). That's a plus, since a drinking tube is not something I remember having on a work mask before. The only cons I would say, is that I was spoiled on the mesh harness that comes on the Scott 3M masks - those harnesses take a beating and are comfortable, but I'm not going to be wearing this mask every day - so that was an acceptable trade-off. Also, I wish they manufactured this in other sizes, but maybe that will come some day. Their other mask they sell comes in other sizes. If the mask fits you, it's hands-down a winner for a civilian respirator that's within a decent price range. I think I found the 3m mask on northern safety for $100 more and then decided on this one. (Also, I didn't compare israeli masks in my decision, as I only wanted a newly manufactured mask because I wanted something with an unquestionable shelf life. (Divide the price by 20 years and you will see that $11 a year is really very cheap when it comes to having this kind of security on hand in a rapidly changing world.) I live overseas now and we move a lot, so it feels nice to finally have a proper emergency kit in the house.
Best bang for your buck CBRN mask
I’m an Army combat veteran with 4 tours in Iraq, and somewhat of a gas mask collector. Within my collection, I own the following: - MIRA Safety CM-6M - Drager CDR 4500 - Drager X-plore 6300 - 4A1 Israeli Civilian Mask - Israeli Military M15 Mask - Mestel SGE 150 - Mestel SGE 400/3 I originally wrote a version of this review for a Drager mask I purchased and it got a lot of helpful votes, so I figured I’d expand on it and go into detail about the MIRA CM-6M, while giving some background about the other masks I own. Considering the many options, it’s important to know what the mask is intended for, and the level of protection it offers. Keep in mind, the focus of this comparison is for CBRN applications (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear). Also keep in mind, that a gas mask is only one component of CBRN PPE (personal protective equipment). To minimize exposure during a true SHTF scenario, you also need coveralls, gloves, boots, and Chemtape to seal up the seams. Along with that, you would need a decontamination agent such as FAST Act for equipment, and RSDL for skin. -- MIRA Safety CM-6M: PROS *Compliant under EN 136 CL3 standards for respiratory protective devices. *Large visor with a very wide field of view. *Made from butyl rubber which meets material specifications for CBRN protection. *Comes standard with a speech diaphragm. *Comes standard with a pre-installed drinking system and external canteen. *Compatible with CamelBak water bladders. *Fits standard 40mm filter cartridges, which are widely available. *Fits up to 2 filter cartridges simultaneously, increasing the time you can go without changing filters, and making it easier to breathe under physical exertion, or for people with smaller lung capacities (kids). *Used by military in Europe and the Middle East. *Long shelf life of 20 years. CONS *Has a slight rubber smell. In all fairness, all butyl masks that I own also have some rubber smell, just figured I’d mention it just in case someone reading is very sensitive to this. *It’s not NIOSH CBRN Approved so it would limit professional use in the USA (Most government agencies require NIOSH CBRN approval for respiratory devices as part of OSHA standards if using the mask as part of your workplace PPE). Definitely great to have, but having or not having this certification does not determine quality, just means it went through and passed a certain series of tests here in the US. --- Drager CDR 4500: Fantastic all around mask that I have now designated as a preparedness backup after my CM-6M and DHS 7000. The lack of a drinking system made me seek out other options as gas masks get pretty stuffy, and taking off the mask for some water while getting out of dodge may not be an option. Drager X-plore 6300: The structure of this mask is identical to the CDR 4500, with some slight color variation. The major difference is the rubber used for this mask is not NIOSH CBRN approved. However, It does have a NIOSH rating for use against many gases, chemical agents, and particulates. This mask holds an EN 136 CL 2 certification. 4A1 Israeli Civilian Mask: Sold mostly in surplus stores and can be picked up for under $30. Visibility is poor considering the small visors, one for each eye. Many people in Israel have this mask in case of emergency, and I’m sure it’s saved lives over the years, but I would not trust it considering most are surplus and could have been sitting around for 20+ years. This mask is not rated for CBRN purposes. Also, do not use the supplied filter as most are long expired. Israeli Military M15 Mask: Similar specs to the 4A1, but with bigger visors. These do expire (20 yr life), so keep that in mind if purchasing. I’ve owned 5 M15 surplus masks over the years and 3 had damaged valves, leading to a return. These masks are resistant to certain warfare agents, but not the full gamut. I would recommend looking up the spec sheet for more detail. Mestel SGE 150: This mask looks really nice, but is not intended for CBRN purposes of any sort. There is no coating on the visor against chemical irritants, and there is no CBRN certification. Primary use for this would be against tear gas, pepper spray, and riot situations. Mestel SGE 400/3: Same as the SGE 150, but with 3 filter ports instead of one. This mask also has a few optional accessories. Retail is around $200, and can cost upwards of $400 when fully loaded with accessories (speech diaphragm, drinking module, canteen). If you want the extra accessories, you either have to buy it pre-installed, or send it back to the factory for professional installation which could take weeks. This is a great mask to block tear gas if you’re stuck in a riot, but is not intended for CBRN applications.
Ordered this mask and filter combo for upcoming local events - not Only was it purchased at a great value BUT shipping was crazy fast. Got my order in 4 days - one of which was New Year’s Day! Can’t say enough positive things! Super comfortable, can wear for extended periods without getting a headache, easy to adjust and outstanding vision. Love it!
Best gas mask I own .
I got my CM-6M gas mask today, I’m extremely happy with it . It’s super high quality and worth it if your getting into prepping and you want a good gas mask. I’ve been prepping since 2014 and didn’t own a gas mask at the time , it wasn’t till later I bought a SGE 400/3 and then eventually the Israeli M-15 and now my Brand New CM-6M mask . I have enough gas masks for the house hold should an emergency happen . The CM-6M mask is definitely my primary now and It’s going with my bug out bags .
It fits great and is pretty comfortable, but the exhaust cover is a little hard to get back on and the second filter port is hard to get off but otherwise no problems so far and its a great mask.
