I have inhaled, exhaled everything. – Arnold Schwarzenegger


While we definitely don’t condone inhaling and exhaling everything, looking at you Wuhan Institute of Virology scientists, nothing makes inhaling India levels of air quality better than a quality surplus gas mask. And nobody does quality gear better than Schwarzenegger's homeland, Austria.

The M65A2 may look pretty similar for our more seasoned gasmask connoisseurs, with its striking triangle lenses, front mounted filter and 40mm NATO filter. The Austrians and Germans have always been close, especially from 1938-1945…, and this gasmask is no different with only a few subtle changes compared to their German brethren. The main difference being the canteen adapter, which is similar to conventional NATO types compared to the German M65A1 long drinking straw style.

However the mask is surprisingly modern compared to some of our more eastern counterparts. Manufactured by Draeger since 1965 up until the late 1990s, these masks feature a 3mm exterior rubber seal for an airtight fit and a modern head strap system that is easy to adjust unlike the infamous GP5. These masks are only recommended for display and larping. Or with the right filter, maybe a little chemical and dust exposure as a treat. Distinctly Germanic, the M65A2 is perfect for your Bundesheer or Bundeswehr clone-correct kit.

ist gut

The page says that all M65A2s come in Size 2 which should fit nearly anyone. I had zero problems, but if your mileage is a little different, tightening the straps should make it stick.

The mask in the picture is a brownish/beige, but you're more likely to get one that's a greenish drab.

As for the actual condition, it's great for it's age. No visible cracks, and it passed the ol' hand-over-the-inlet test. It might've passed some other tests too. All testing done for display and costuming purposes, of course.

If you need to hypothetically filter out the nasties in the air so you can hypothetically breathe in something much better, I'd say this is a good pick.

Good condition, some easily cleanable gunk

There was a bit of *residue* on the inside of the mask that came off with a moist paper towel. Seems to be in serviceable condition and fit well.
