As noted, each chemical protective hood offered by Keepshooting.com is an authentic U.S. Military surplus item. The chemical protective hood was originally designed as a complement to the M17 protective mask, a gas mask designed and produced in 1959 as a replacement for the M9 gas mask and intended to provide protection from the known chemical and biological hazards that existed at the time. As such, these chemical protective hoods were designed for issuance to members of the U.S. Military, especially those who served in the U.S. Army requiring such protection.
Each chemical protective hood is a brand new, never issued item and remains in its original factory packaging. As such, they are free from the typical rips, tears, stains and scents that are characteristic of previously issued military surplus. In other words, these chemical protective hoods are an excellent choice for those looking for moderate protection from mild agents.
The chemical protective hood boasts a durable vinyl construction that is designed for use in concert with a full-sized gas mask. To provide a fit that is both comfortable and snug, the chemical protective hood also features a cinch cord in the neck as well as Velcro® adjustable straps that are designed to anchor the hood underneath the arms of the wearer. The hood itself features two eye and two air inlets as well as a speech diaphragm outlet valve. When used alongside the M17 protective mask or the Czech M10 gas mask, the chemical protective hood provides enhanced protection from chemical and biological hazards that a gas mask will not provide on its own.
The only remaining interesting aspect regarding the chemical protective hood is the fact that the NATO Stock Number (NSN) is printed on the packaging. An NSN is a 13-digit numerical code that identifies all standardized materials of supply that are recognized by NATO countries. The NSN for the chemical protective hood is 4240-00-999-0420, which identifies it as a chemical-biological mask/hood. Presumably, its odd NSN exists as a conversion from the Federal Stock Number system that was in use from 1949 through 1975.
Though Keepshooting.com cannot guarantee any level of protection for the chemical protective hood as it related to nuclear, biological, chemical or radiological threats, we can confirm that it is a great display piece and collector's item. Additionally, it should provide some protection during everyday activities that may involve dangerous fumes and similar hazards. Grab your chemical protective hood today for just $9.95.

Comes sealed in a bag, it's well adjustable and fits well with the czech m10 gas mask, would definitely recommend and for any preppers it's a must have should you want maximum head and face protection
Fits great on the Czech m 10 gas mask. Also works we'll with other types. Does the job and fits great.
You never know when you will need a chemical hood. Well, you really don't, hopefully never. I live near a railroad track which hauls 100's of tanker cars of chemicals within a mile of my house everyday. I have (3) M10 gas masks and (3) Israeli gas masks which will work with this hood. Bought 3 hoods. Opened one up to see what it looked like. It was covered with what looked like baby powder. Now I know what all that powder is that comes on old gas masks, baby powder. Like with rubber gloves, the powder helps keep the material from sticking together and so you can get on quickly. It makes a mess. I will tell you this, you think the gas mask by it's self looks scary, wait till you you put this on with it. Left the other 2 sealed, will use the opened one to train with.
Judging from the size, made to wear under a helmet, not over top of it. Top part fits snug around the top of your head.
Not really a great fit for the Israeli civilian mask, but good enough. Obviously intended for the Czech M10. Construction quality looks good and durable. There was a rubbery film coating the inside of the hood that is apparently used in the packing process. It took some effort to fully open the hood in order to make it usable. Not really a issue from a functional perspective, but something to be aware of.
I bought this with the Czech M10M gas mask and the two go together perfectly. The price of the hood and M10M is a bargain, Looked around and can't find this combo anywhere close to this price.
Fits pretty well on the Czech M10M gas mask, and also worked pretty well with my other gas masks, it's adjustable so it can fit tightly around your head and any mask. It came in a tightly sealed small package, and it was packed tight, but it came out pretty nicely and I was later able to pack it down and put it back in the package to store it in one of my gas mask bags. Would definitely recommend it, especially at this price.
Threw one in for the heck of it to add to the ones I already have. These work great. I keep all but one sealed. I have one open to see how it works and used when I had to bleach a wall. Will buy a few more for use and "just in case"
Great for my Czech M10M mask.it fits well and comes new in a sealed package. Great for a bug out bag or random uses around the house
As others have stated, this hood fits just about any mask but it seems to work the best with an M10. It comes vacuum sealed and ready to use. Perfect for any "prepper" or collector.
This fits over my M61 perfectly and covers my neck as well. I was skeptical at first due to the price but it comes in a sealed package and is in great condition.
Very nice product. It came in a vacuum sealed, very thick paper bag type material. This is great, and goes over my Israeli civilian gas mask fine, then you attach your gas mask filter. This is a must have for people who paint indoors a lot such as myself, and make their own inks/ paints. Now your hair and facial area will not smell like ink pigments/xylene after mixing colors for a few hours on end.
You're allowed to put this on just about any mask! Just take out the filter, put on the mask, put on this protective hood, and re-attach the filter. Quite amazing, and i love this product. it was cheap, not quality, but price, and outstanding. But it seems better on with the Czech M10M gas mask on. Great job KeepShooting.
I received a sealed protective hood. Fits great with the m10 gas mask. Really covers the head and seals for more protection. Great value.
This hood is great, brand new and sealed in factory packaging (from the USA.) Would fit a big head but very adjustable, and has adjustable under arm straps. The zipper in the front is perfect for easier installation/removal. If you have an M10 gas mask without this hood, you only have half the package. If you don't have the mask you can get one on this site also, and for the best price I found anywhere. Keep it up KeepShooting.
