This gas mask is really high quality and you get what you pay for. I started off with an Israeli mask I picked up for 40 bucks and decided to upgrade after noticing that there are small cracks in the rubber. Did some research on this, and it seems like most Israeli masks sit around for many years, and after they expire, are sold at surplus auctions for pennies on the dollar...eventually ending up on Amazon and sold at enormous markups. This is the type of thing that's likely going to sit around in my closet for many years to come, so I'd rather get something that would actually work if a true emergency happens.
Best bang for your buck CBRN mask - Amazon Review
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.
