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.

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.
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.
