RARE Soviet Gas mask. This is really scary soviet Army officer's gas mask "PBF". Made in 1985. Size Large (3)
The PBF "Filter Biochemical gas mask" was first created in 1982 and was widely issued within the Soviet Union and the German NVA until 1989, when it was considered obsolete by officials. A special feature of this mask is that the filters are designed to last 7 days under chemical attack (this made the mask quite popular as regular gas masks only last 1 day at the most). The mask itself is only designed for gas attacks, not defense against Nuclear threats. It is nicknamed the Hamster, Gorilla or the Polar Bear gas mask and is a must have for a gas mask collector. Steam-punk mask.
Never used, comes with filters
Good for carnavals and halloween parties!
ABOU PBF GAS MASK
The PBF gas mask is a gas mask that originated in the Soviet Union during the Cold War. It was intended to be a lightweight gas mask that did not have a heavy metal canister filter or tube. Instead, the PBF uses two smaller EO-19 'cheek' filters mounted on each side of the mask, similarly to the US M17.
Like many other Soviet gas masks, the PBF was made in both grey and black versions.
The PBF's voice emitter and exhale valve are located behind a plastic cover at the front of the mask.
Like some other Soviet Cold-War-era masks, the PBF's lenses are designed to be used by soldiers that must look down optical devices, as the lenses are not angled.
A notable feature of the PBF is the fact that it has indentations meant to fit over the wearer's ears. The material in this area is also thinner, to aid in hearing.
According to some sources, the filters of the PBF are meant to last as long as 7 days, depending on the level of air contamination.
The PBF is still used by police forces in some former Warsaw Pact countries, due to its light weight.
The name "EO-19 PBF" stems from the filter's designation that is used inside of this mask (the EO-19)
