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.

Brand spankin’ new and seals over my beard
This thing is fantastic and compliments my PASGT helmet nicely for a truly fashionable appearance for the impending collapse of society. A must have accessory if you’re also the crazy uncle of your family. You’ll look so chic the zombies won’t be able to stop chasing you.
Exactly as described
Fits snugly and passes the air flow test, and takes the filters I have on hand. Overall great mask.
The best gear in the game
