This is a vintage '70-early '80s M17A2 gas mask loaded with extras. This mask comes with:
chemical hood (attached); decon kit; green outsert lenses for laser protection; users manual; extra, sealed filter set; carry bag; and waterproofing bag. This model has the sealed drinking tube that you can see on the front of the mask, to the left and above the voice opening. This tube attaches to a special cap on a canteen and allows the user to drink while wearing the mask.
The mask falls into the med./large size range. Excellent example for the re-enactor or collector. The rubber is still pliable and soft. There are no cracks or splits in the mask or hood. Unknown Military combat history use. The mask was sanitized B4 storage.
More pics available for the asking.
An excellent deal for the price.
$35.00Cash & carry. I have many more filters, lenses, head harnesses, outer hoods, inlet valves, and a winter cover for the inlet valves. If ALL the extras are wanted, the price would be between $50.00-$60.00 for the whole shebang.
