  • Pocket-size
  • Dons within seconds. No adjustment straps.
  • One size fits all.
  • Strong, fire-resistant, elastic rubber hood, protects the entire head and seals comfortably at the neck.
  • Large visor, made of flame-retardant transparent film, allows a wide field of view.
  • High-efficiency, electrostatic particle filter, with extremely low pressure-drop to allow easy breathing.
  • Layers of activated charcoal with special impregnation to absorb toxic gases.
  • A unique breathing device (patent pending) enables rapid exhalation and improves the physiological conditions for the user, preventing built-up of heat or vapor inside the mask.
