With living history events like World War II reenactments becoming popular, there is a strong demand for authentic reproductions of original equipment and uniforms. This reproduction gas mask canister is an excellent example of a quality reproduction that is faithful to the original.
Every aspect of this gas mask canister recreates the look and feel of the original. The dimensions of each canister are correct as we have tested them by putting an authentic German WWII M38 gas mask inside and the fit is perfect. The exterior of each canister has the fluted design to recreate the look of the war time canister. Underneath the lid is the compartment that would have stored the repair and cleaning gear issued with each gas mask. The straps attached to the canister are correct in design, look, and purpose.

I have several original examples and this repro is dead on!
I don't re-enact, but these make great bottle carriers or portable garbage tins. Can also be used as a lunch box!
These also fit tins of Scho-ka-kola chocolate inside perfectly (almost as if it were a design goal!) so you can carry caffienated chocolate wherever you go.
