The Polish MC-1 Gas Mask is an authentic piece of Polish military surplus equipment. Each gas mask comes with the mask, carry bag, and 40mm gas mask filter which would make a complete set as issued to soldiers in the Polish land forces. These Polish gas masks are desired by collectors, fans of military surplus, and those seeking an inexpensive yet reliable mask for personal protection.

The MC-1 Gas Mask features several design elements from gas masks in the Czech Republic and Israel. With this borrowing of these key features, namely the 6-point adjustable head strap and speech diaphragm, soldiers in the Polish army were able to have a superior gas mask that afforded both protection and comfort. Recognizing the fact that gas masks can impair a soldiers visibility, the Polish army designed the MC-1 to have over-sized round eyepieces allowing for a superior field of vision over other military gas masks.

Features:
  • Authentic Polish Army Gas Mask
  • Uses NATO Standard 40mm Filters
  • Comfortable 6-Point Adjustable Harness
  • Integrated Speech Diaphragm
  • Includes Mask, Original Carry Bag, and Surplus Filter

Great mask and air tight

Ordered two masks tried them and they work perfectly, did a gas test and holds a tight seal with compromised rate of .02% (probably because of hair on face and head) Although I ordered two I recieved one that is a child's size so not sure if the rest of you should order one at a time to assure adult sizing.

This was a very nice price for a good deal of product. It includes the mask's bag with Poland's signature "raindrop" camo pattern, instructions in Polish, and a little capsule with a cleaning cloth(at least, that's what I got). The seal could be a little sketchy and I'm looking into how safe the filter is to use, but it was completely sealed, which is great. Overall, I'm very surprised I got this at 5 dollars, and though it came a little dirty and it's not the highest quality mask you can get here, it has a very distinctive look that's great for costumes and is a good historical item with a lot of value in the little details.

I ordered two of these polish gas masks at under 5$ each. It was a great buy. They are in great shape and came with a surplus carry bag as well. There were also period instructions included as well. A very cool piece of history and a little insurance "just in case" as well. Review by AJ (Posted on 2/11/2017)

At this price I just bought another one. These are great for painting, etc. and other household jobs. I'm keeping one for just in case but hope to use others when mask is needed. As others have said, they have powder on them and lenses are dirty but after a good scrubbing, they are in great shape for whatever you need them for. Sure beats filter masks from your local hardware store when working with chemicals that you shouldn't be breathing. If KeepShooting puts cheap filters back on sale, I'll get more extras to swap these out. Get yours while you can! Review by Dave (Posted on 2/6/2017)

I got this when it was on sale for under $5. For that price I simply couldn't pass it by. Got it in, and it met my expectations and more. It's a smaller size, but for a display, size wasn't my concern. The bag is cool, and even included the manual and anti perspiration stick. The canister was still sealed. The mask itself was dusty, the elastic straps still have some stretch left. Good buy. Review by Benjamin (Posted on 2/5/2017)
A Preppers Dream

I was really impressed with the mask set overall. The masks seemed to be gently used. The rubber was all fine, it did have a preservative powder on it. There was some wear on the outer eye ring and the heavy duty head harness showed minor wear. All of the 40mm filters were sealed. The mask carrier has a unique color/camouflage to it. There is a waist strap and a leg strap. The material is kind of thin though. I don't think it would hold up to heavy prolonged use.

I don't know if all sets will have it but there was a sheet of paper with Polish language instructions on it and there was a bottle with what I assume was a clothe for anti fog.

Normally European Military is not made to high standards like the US military equipment but one thing that impressed me was the head harness. It was thick and very elastic. Good stuff.

Just an FYI, if your still reading this review. I spent 16 years in the Army (Bradley), Army National Guard (Tanker/Medic) and then Active Duty Army National Guard (Supply Sergeant/Quartermaster). In all those years I never saw a mask removed from service because of age, deadline defects yes but not age. Normal wear and tear parts were replaced of course. Bottom line is it is a great deal. If you have been wanting to get a mask but don't want to pay several hundred dollars for a new one then this is it.

Now a negative to keepshooting.com, it took around a week for the shipping department to ship my order. Once it was shipped with priority mail I received it in 3 days.

I also bought two of the Czech M85 bag for $1.95. I am doing a review on them next...

I love finding inexpensive jewels at Keep Shooting. Here is another I added to my collection. Both masks I purchased arrived in great condition. There is a little corrosion on the eye pieces but it will clean off. All parts were included including a new filter. The size you will receive is random, I got a size 2 and a 3.

Received my second Polish gas mask and just as the previous one this one to was new and appears to have never been issued. I highly recommend this mask to anyone looking for a gas mask on a budget. It is only cheap in price and definitely not in quality. Review by Fred (Posted on 4/6/2016)

Just received my mask today and was surprised with the quality of this product. My mask appears to never have been issued and even had the instruction sheet in the bag.

Very cool "classic"-looking gas mask
Price
Value
Quality
I've recently started collecting gas masks, so when I saw this particular mask on sale, I had to have one. I'm a huge fan of the 'classic' round glass eyepiece design, as well as the funky 'worm' pattern camo of the carrier (the Polish have such odd camo patterns). On that subject, this is a very complete kit; the carrier came with the mask, a sealed filter, cleaning cloth, and instructions in Polish, which was a really cool little addition.

The mask itself was in fair shape; there was a fair bit of preservative talcum and old rubber on the mask itself, and the glass eyepieces were a bit scratched up. The harness was functional, but has lost a bit of it's elasticity. I screwed in my 'practice' C2A1 filter and checked the seal; solid, no leaks. However, this mask is of a fairly simple design; as such, it doesn't have a separate mouthpiece inside the mask, so the eyepieces are prone to fogging up. There are airflow divert channels under the eyepieces, but they will only defog the lenses upon inhaling. Additionally, it's a pretty tight fit; I wear a Medium U.S. M40-series gas mask, and this one was pretty snug around the chin cup. All that being said, this is a pretty awesome addition to my rapidly growing collection!

This gas mask has a pretty cool/interesting look to it with it having the metal surrounding the eye glass. I think the one I got is 60's-70's era? Not really sure. On the filter I've seen a few numbers on it... /71, /79, /87. On my gas mask bag i think it might be 1966.

Okay so that out of the way. Mine had a slight surplus smell, which wasn't a big deal. Needed to clean it a bit with a little soap and warm water, especially the eyes. Remove the plastic caps from the filter, screw it it, loosen the straps a bit, put the mask on, and then tighten the straps until you can get a decent seal. Breathe in and out so that you can feel no air seeping in underneath the rubber, then you know your getting a good seal.

On mine I'd say I could get a 90%+ air seal, I think that's pretty good considering the age of these. Although... I'm not sure how effective they would be in a really dangerous nuclear situation. Probably would be effective for cleaning/painting which is what I intend to use mine for, can't wait to test it on that.

So I bought three of these masks and the first two were great. A friend and I put them on, cleaned the dust off the glass lenses and tried 'em on = great fit, very comfy, very cool looking too. The third one, though, had a broken lens. However, Keepshooting picked up at customer service at the first ring and we solved the problem. WORTH THE MONEY. Review by Ivan (Posted on 4/5/2014)

I received a tan one and honestly I don't know too much about these but I though for $11 how could I go wrong? Great deal came with mask, filter, bag for the mask & filter, and even a polish instruction manual. Like others have said its most likely not very usable, rubbers becoming chalky but for $11 its a great complete package. KS as always was great with fast shipping Review by Eric (Posted on 3/30/2014)
