    Question *Gas Mask* NBC ????? Not sure what to get.

    I know I need to get myself an NBC mask for best protection. but with bills and whatnot it's hard to cough up around $200 for a gas mask i'll hopefully never need in my lifetime.

    However- I was wondering what you guys recommend.
    What the prices are like.
    and why you recommend it in particular.


    What i'm looking for is a maximum protection NBC mask ((DOES NOT NEED TO HAVE UNOBSTRUCTED VIEW) I'm perfectly fine with it having a limited view- but it's the cost that really gets me.

    NBC Mask with NATO filters is my plan- I don't have a set budget precisely. I'm just trying to figure a ball park range of what I need to save up.

    Right to what Smitty901 said. If they are huffing out something bad enough for a person to need a mask..take a whiff and get it over with. lol.

    A mask on its own will not provide the protection you desire...

    You need a suit for each environment...

    You need to know the lifespan of those suits...

    They are not once in a lifetime purchase

    If you feel you are in a high priority target zone, your planning needs so much more than a gas mask.

    Here is a map of nuclear plants with fallout zones and prevailing winds in the case of a "fukishima" type event.

    click the link and enter your zip code on the right.

    The map is interactive and zoomable.

    If you are in one of these zones in the case of an event...GET OUT AND DO IT BY HEADING THE RIGHT DIRECTION.

    If you are NOT in one of these zones in the case of an event...STAY PUT AND VIGILANTLY AWAIT FURTHER INSTRUCTIONS.

    A "Fukishima-type" event at a United States nuclear power plant is extremely unlikely to happen. The Fukishima accident was a comedy of errors and incompetence. Our nuke plants are much, much safer. I could go into specifics, but it would be really boring.

    Obviously, if any kind of accident at a U.S. nuke power plant occurred where there was a significant release of radioactive material, you definitely want to be UPWIND of the plant. The evacuation area is a ten mile radius, so if you live within 10 miles of the nuke plant, you will have to leave.

    As for the mask question, I would recommend going to e-Bay and buying some new Israeli full face gas masks, and buy several extra NBC canisters, since the canisters are good for 8 hours. Either the "citizen" gas masks or the military gas masks will work. They are sold in adult and children sizes, and the more you buy, the cheaper they are. I would guess they cost around $20-30 each, and the NBC canisters are about $7-10 a piece. I bought our supply a few years ago, so my prices could be off, but they are not as expensive as you believe. The NBC canisters are your best bet. Nuclear-Biological-Chemical pretty much covers everything that could happen that would require the use of a mask.
