This gas mask filter from Poland is an authentic military surplus gas mask filter. The Polish army uses gas masks that accept all 40mm standard NATO sized filters, which would include this filter. Filters of this design style were very common in the Soviet-era when Poland was aligned with the Soviet union through the Warsaw Pact. Perfect for collectors, displays, or historical events where authenticity is desired.
Replacement gas mask filters have always been in demand, with NATO standard 40mm filters being most desired. These gas mask filters from Poland are both military surplus as well as built to adapt to 40mm gas masks. With filter styles being very specific to time periods, we are able to say these gas mask filters are from the late 1980s and were used with the Polish army version of the GP-5.
The design of this gas mask filter makes it ideal for use with the GP-5 gas mask hose. While it is not as large or as heavy as the standard "coffee can" style filter, it is still heavier than a traditional attached mask filter. You will find that these filters are very rare as they are smaller than a "coffee can" filter but larger than a standard sized filter. This would make these filters ideal for collectors, historical events, or film production where time period authenticity is desired. We cannot state what if any protective levels they will provide, only that they are genuine Polish military issue and appear to have been sealed since they were produced.
