    Effective gas masks?

    I've recently bought an Israeli M15 gas mask with filters and I was wondering if it is an effective mask for emergencies, if its not, what superior gas masks are there and where might I acquire one? Advice on filters would also be appreciated, as I'm worried about either a nuclear incident or a super volcano eruption.

    A gas mask is only as good as how it fits and the quality of the filters. From everything I read the Israeli mask is very good. As far as a nuclear accident or attack, it should do fine, but you will need to do more than just have a gas mask. While it will protect you from the dangers of inhaled or ingested nuclear materials, I hope you have spares filters. BUT as far as a super volcano, if you are caught in the deluge of ash, the filters will clog up very fast. Have plenty of spares.

    Also one thing people forget is you should be clean shaven. It disrupts the seal and can sometimes prevent it from sealing.
