Czech Army Hospital Gas Mask - Gas Mask for Wounded Soldiers and Civilians
Czech Army Casualty Gas Mask
The Czech Army Hospital Gas Mask is frequently referred to as a casualty gas mask. Designed to be used with soldiers or civilians who are suffering head trauma but still need to be protected from chemical weapons, this is a very unique mask. We've had a similar Russian mask in the past, and it ended up being sold out with interest from film studios and collectors alone.
Czech Army Casualty Gas Mask
The Czech Army Hospital Casualty Gas Mask is a unique gas mask designed to protect wounded troops from NBC threats. The mask is designed with a full neck area and three canvas ties at the back to ensure a tight fit over any sized head with any type of wound. This particular mask is great for those who have larger-than-normal heads as well since it is made overly-large to be able to support soldiers with head wounds.
We've had a mask like this before, that particular mask was from Russia, and this mask is clearly based on it. We ended up selling virtually every one of those masks to a film studio who used it as the basis for a costumed army. Once you examine one of these Czech Army Hospital Gas Masks, you'll see why they wanted them. This is quite possibly the creepiest and most disturbing gas mask ever made.
Unissued Czech Army Surplus - Never been used or worn!
Uses common 40MM NATO standard filters
Comes with 28" long hose for attaching filter, and one green Canteen style filter
Thick and soft neck padding and three grey canvas tie straps
A great collectible. Something you wouldn't expect.
The mask I received has to be new. There doesn't seem to be any sign of use, and I kind of expected that. There is usually not much use for these if there's no active fighting going on. I suppose they could have also been used secondarily at some hospitals, so your mask may not be a fresh surplus mask like mine. I'm sure many people overlook the warnings that these are for collecting purposes only. As long as you remember that, and you take into account the prices of new masks and filters, you'll see what a great deal these are.
Here's mustard in your eye
Everything else from my order arrived in a timely fashion and good condition, but this mask arrived with a shattered lens that looked like someone put a bb through it. I guess it was only 19 dollars.
Units arrived in great shape. both in functional condition.
arrived in like new condition,,, this is one of the only gas masks that should work well with longer full beards ! I do have background of military and firefighting use of breathing masks. Good buy !
old buy, really spooky
i ordered this item a long while ago and its creepy on many levels, considering it was used for head trauma patients, this type of mask has probably seen some things. it currently sits on display in my house.
Older unit in good shape
Very creepy looking unit, I needed a hose in good condition with the fittings (all there, and in good shape)
I was happy with the products condition considering its age. Myself, I would rather put my trust in a newer unit if I was to depend on it. The condition is "as advertised". A good get for my needs.
