Today’s special forces and elite law enforcement professionals face an unprecedented range of threats in the field.
And compromising tactical effectiveness for protection simply isn’t an option.
The TAPR is a modular half-face respirator platform that can be configured to integrate with most popular helmet systems and communications gear. It’s engineered for rapid deployment and reliable protection while preserving combat readiness and freedom of movement.
Designed to integrate seamlessly into your plate carrier, battle belt, or rig with the included pouch, the TAPR is often the best practical protection you can carry against a range of lethal and nonlethal threats.
The standard TAPR Kit comes with the following:
Center Port TAPR Body
Made from silicone rubber for comfort, it has two exhalation ports and a central 40-mm NATO threaded filter connector.
Mesh Head Harness
Low-profile head harness for use without a helmet or with a helmet without rails, providing full compatibility with the protective headgear used by security forces and rescue teams.
ParticleMax P3 Compact Filter
Particle filters provide protection against solid and liquid particles. Filters are divided into classes according to their filtration efficiency. The highest class (P3) provides reliable protection against solid and liquid aerosols and hazardous microorganisms like bacteria, viruses, spores, etc.
P-CAN Compact Filter
Our P-CAN Compact filter was engineered specifically for use by law enforcement against riot control agents. This filter provides respiratory protection against the effects of tear agents, especially CS and CR gases and agents, both gaseous and aerosol based, e.g., in aqueous solution.
Convenient hard travel case when you’re on the go protects the TAPR respirator mask and all accessories from damage.
Made from 600D nylon fabric, it’s large enough to fit an assembled TAPR and accessories. The back of the pouch has MOLLE webbing and built-in snap straps.
Low-Profile Exhalation Cap
Allows a closer cheek weld when using rifles.
Along with the basic accessories that come with the TAPR kit, several additional accessories are available to expand functionality:
MIRA Safety Gas Mask Microphone
Make your mask comms-ready with an integrated microphone that’s compatible with Peltor and Ops-Core headsets.
ARC Rail Fidlock Connectors
For ultra-secure fitment with most Western helmet systems, the ARC Rail Fidlock buckles are the best possible choice.
MSA Gallet “German” Adapter Kit
This kit allows for rapid deployment of your TAPR with the types of riot helmets that are widely used by police forces around the world, including (but not limited to) the MSA Gallet M05006 and Schuberth P100 series riot helmets.
Custom Right- or Left-Handed Shooter Configuration Body
Standard TAPR masks come with a central 40-mm gas mask filter and an exhalation valve on either side. This is the best configuration for weight balancing, but the central protruding filter can be problematic when you’re shouldering or handling a firearm, especially in close quarters. With the optional “shooter” configuration, the filter port can be moved to either the left or right side of the mask and the Low Profile Exhalation Valve Cover installed on the dominant/“cheek weld” side of the TAPR.
NBC-17 SOF Filter
The filter provides reliable protection against solid and liquid aerosols, smoke producing substances, radioactive particles, bacteria, viruses, vapors of organic and inorganic acids, hydroxides, organic solvents with a boiling point above 65°C, ammonia, amines, acid gases, agricultural chemical combustion products, tear-producing agents, irritants, choking agents, blister and nerve agents, (e.g., bromoacetone, CS substance, organic compounds of arsenic, phosgene, hydrogen cyanide, cyanogen chloride, mustard gas, organophosphates) – sarin, IVA, VX and other toxic substances, (e.g., benzene, toluene, vinyl chloride, fluorine, hydrogen fluoride, sulphur oxides, phosgene, phosphoric acid and its organic derivatives, chloroacetic acid, nitric acid, aldehydes, mixtures of inorganic acids and organic substances.)
IMPORTANT NOTE: Half-face masks do not provide sufficient protection from CBRN threats, and the TAPR was NOT designed for prolonged exposure to unknown environments, blister agents, or toxic industrial chemicals.
Weight: 120 g
Size: Universal Fit
Filter Connection: EN 148-1, NATO STANAG 4155, 40×1/7“

The TAPR military half-face respirator must be stored in a dark, cool, and dust-free location that’s free from sudden temperature changes. The storage room should be ventilated regularly. Temperatures may vary between 5°C and 25°C with 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.
