Pricing guidelines on how much you should spend on a gas mask or respirator. In this video, I take into consideration the prices of antique gas masks from WW1 and WW2, as well as more modern military surplus masks.
For the preppers side of things, I take into consideration the price of newer models of military surplus masks using 40mm filters and the cost of both disposable and reusable industrial respirators.
An important point to consider is the cost of new filters for these masks, 40mm NBC/CBRN filters, and industrial ABEK-P filters will vary a lot in price, with some industrial filters being exclusive to certain models of gas mask. So check the price of filters before deciding on a mask.
It is better to spend more on a mask and then pay less for filters than the other way around.
Masks seen in the video are the AVON CT12 gas mask and the Israeli Shalon 4A1 civilian respirator.
