The East German Gas Mask Pouch is a piece of field gear that was issued to NVA soldiers. Designed as a gas mask pouch, you can easily re-purpose this pouch to carry a wide variety of items. The large belt loops makes this bag ideal for carrying tools, extra magazines, or shotgun shells.
The East German Army (NVA) gas mask pouch is a large pouch that has plenty of internal storage space. Every single East German pouch we've imported has sold out and customers always impress us with new and interesting uses for these military pouches.
I rarely write reviews but this was such a great example of an East German gas mask pouch I had to share. The item arrived in perfect packaging and looks like it just came off the communist East German manufacturing plant assembly line. Very happy customer and this is a great addition to my "rain camo" East German uniform I am building
Well put together pouch in unissued condition
Great bag, with a number of internal dividers and one exterior pocket.
Mine was in unissued condition.
Tempted to try and make a haversack out of it.
vintage and cool!
great bag for misc items while hiking. I love it
East Geman gear getting rare
New condition bag does as intended, stows my Drager mask & filter nicely, matches to E-G pistol belt in catalog, can use for other uses but I bought for intended gas mask purchase. Get while aval in new shape
I purchased one of these with an M65 Gas Mask and the two work great together! The bag is unissued, or in equally outstanding condition, and works great on a belt, or under the arm with a strap. A good piece and well worth the money!
Makes a great shoulder bag
Wasn't sure I'd like this one but gave it a shot. One I received was in excellent condition. Its a nice size, very durable, already water proof, internal dividers. Just needs a shoulder strap.
Never issued it in brand new condition. You can't tell that it is 25+ years old. Great for storing bits and pieces of small stuff in my cars trunk.
Take out the dividers!
These are great projects - just pop out the dividers and you have a nice, wide open pouch suitable for food or an iPad. Anything you want, really! Can also be attached to the equally cheap combat packs available here for a super-spacious, semi waterproof hiking combo!
I ordered This gas mask along with an East German gas mask bag. The bag will fit 4 filters plus the gas mask. The gas mask came as described, They are used. Lenses were fairly clear with some scratches but not too bad, I didn't notice them when I was wearing it; the mask its self had some wear and paint missing around the eye pieces, no big deal. Other than that It's great, More comfortable than my Israeli counterpart. Mask comes with one filter. I ordered 3 more NBC 40mm 381 Swiss filters along with it, all came sealed with no leaks. Always happy with KeepShooting. Thanks.
This gas mask pouch is awesome. I don't use it for a gas mask, but it has compartments that you can fit almost anything in. This pouch goes great on a utility belt. The one I received was brand new in the plastic, and I would definitely order more.
Another great offer
I can put a Nikon compact binocular in the side-pocket. I pinched the smaller of the two metal loops so that it can slip thru the slight wider metal loop, then slip the nylon tongue through to have a more secured closure. Will be using it in the upcoming vacation to field test it.
Great bag for the money

Bags arrived in excellent condition look unused. Bags are very well made. Very satisfied.
East German Gas Mask Pouch, Brand New
Awesome Rain Pattern pouch, uses are only limited by your needs and imagination. Awesome quality.
More tough rain camo
This is my second type of E. German rain camo surplus, I also picked up some of the larger packs with the grey leather strap system. These bags are about 80% of that size and don't have the same thick heavy duty innards. Instead you get a 3 sectioned interior and an exterior pocket. There are no exterior carry handles or straps, it is designed for belt usage attachment, or to be strapped onto another bag. No serious storage smells and appears to be unissued.
Awesome unused bag!
Mine is brand new, It can hold a good amount of gear and would make a great butt pack or shoulder pack with the addition of a strap since it doesn't come with one.
I plan on ordering another with my next order!
I love Rain Camo!
Great, brand new bag which is spacious and well built.
I highly recommend this pack
Great Price, great bag
I bought this bag before I bought the Israeli M-15 mask and its great! Sturdy construction, brand new smell, and it's extremely versatile. Its a great bag or pack and I recommend it to everyone.
Rain pattern pouch for the old "Piggy" mask
In the late 1980's the East German NVA (Army) was upgrading a lot of combat gear and this is one of the pieces from that upgrade. While many thousands of sets were produced, most were never issued. My bag arrived in new, never used condition and I'll bet yours will be the same. These are for the old (heck, ancient by the time these were being produced) M1941 Russian mask. As such there's a LOT of room in this bag (the large filter lived in the bag and had a hose to the front of the mask-not inconvenient at all!) and it has dividers aplenty. AND it's waterproof! It does have nice big belt loops to attach to a belt, but you'll need to attach your own shoulder strap, as these don't have one. Still a great value for the money!
