An excellent collectible item!

I got this as a just-in-case. probably the best one out there - especially for the money. It is in perfect shape and fits really well. Like others have said, good luck finding the drinking hose inside when you need it. You'd have to stick it in your mouth while putting it on and then bite down and never let go. I bought the canteen along with it but may never be able to use it. That is the ONLY flaw in this mask. It should do what you need it to when you need it to do it. Don't forget to get the nice French Military Gas Mask Bag to go with it - it's a great fit as well. Get them while you can!
Good, is as advertised
First off, I'm not an expert, so take everything I say with a grain of salt. The mask I received is in very good condition and is dated 1988. The filter it comes with is expired, but sealed on the ends. However, since the mask is of the 40mm NATO standard, new filters are readily available. You get pretty good field of view with this mask as the eyepieces are very large. Some sources may say that if your mask is over 20 years old it is unsafe, however, I don't see any reason a mask wouldn't still be good as long as the rubber and exhale valves are in good condition. Also I don't see how after 20 years a mask, suddenly and magically, becomes unsafe. I tested the mask with the filter it came with and at the very least it kept out the smell of rubbing alcohol and soldering fumes. Unfortunately, I don't have any nuclear bombs, biological weapons, or chemical weapons to give this mask the ultimate stress test. However, with a new filter, I suspect this mask will still put you in a much better situation than your unmasked brethren, if it doesn't leave you completely unscathed. My only complaint is the design of the drinking tube. The actual hose you drink out of inside the mask is a pain to actually get in your mouth, but, honestly, if I'm ever in a situation where I am going to be wearing the mask so long that using the drinking tube is necessary; I'll probably be dead anyway.
This is a good price for a mask that functions and looks good. The rubber is in excellent condition, and the straps are extremely comfortable. The filter that comes with it is expired, though.
m15 great buy ,got the extra canisters but thought they would be newer than 2002.there good for 7 more years
Is as advertised
I picked one of these up and it is absolutely brand-new, great buy!!! I'll be purchasing another one for my girlfriend.... She thinks it's stupid but she'll be singing a different tune if something happens.... better safe than sorry right?
I received the M15 mask on March 15, 2014. It was manufactured in 1988, the strapping, which is part of the package was made in 1987, and the filter expired in 1993. I was hoping I would get a more recently manufactured mask, but no joy. I am happy with the one I received though. It does look brand new, the rubber is pliable and has no cracking, the lenses are clear and all seals are sealing as they should. The filter may still be good for smoke or tear gas but I would not trust it for NBC use. I will be ordering a recently manufactured filter, I have seen them with 2018 expiration dates.
Since I have a fairly thin face for an adult the mask leaked air on both sides at eye level (the mask has the number 2 stamped into it, so probably size 2). I took pieces of 1/8 th. inch thick black foam rubber weatherstripping (not the easily compressed white foam weatherstripping, but real rubber) and secured it in between where the rubber of the mask folds over at eye level (if you have the mask you will know what I mean). Once I did that I had a seal so tight I could have suffocated myself if the air intake was closed off and I could not remove the mask.
I think this Israeli mask offers more than any mask out there considering it has a water tube and a speaking apparatus.
GREAT MASK AT A GREAT PRICE!!!
02 manufacture date, filter was an 08, and comes with the drinking tube attachment. Filter is the unfinished aluminum.
Appears brand new, no dry rot to the rubber or any other degradation noted. A fine piece would recommend to anyone looking for a reliable mask at a decent price.
Modern, yet inexpensive
A lot of modern gas masks you see are unreasonably overpriced. This is definitely the exception, and I recommend it to anyone who wants an effective gas mask for a cheaper price. The mask has it all; Adjustability, comfort, an easy to use drinking device and a voice piece on the front that makes it easier for those around you to hear you. Probably the best mask I've owned, highly recommended if you don't want to get something that's more than a hundred dollars.
Just got 2 of these for the wife and I. Price was great, quality was Better then new. it came in about 3 day which was very fast. I hope and pray we never have to use these.
