Gas Masks From Essex Surplus

We stock a large range of NATO, Russian, Belgian, Finnish and other army surplus gas masks. Our gas masks come in the best condition and are either new or unissued stock. Our used or issued gas masks are of the best quality.

Our gas masks come directly from military sources and we have many specialist and unique gas masks such as a Russian journalist gas mask. In contrast to traditional black gas masks, a journalist mask came in white to make journalists stand out from military personnel. We often get new and less common gas masks that will compliment your collection.

Why Collect or Buy Gas Masks?

Many collect gas masks as military paraphernalia looking to complete a specific uniform or regiment kit. Some clients are re-enactment enthusiasts and looking for gas masks to compliment their military clothing. Others are historians and many are students or schools looking for visual aids to show the changes in military apparatus. Our gas masks are from Russia and are a stark reminder of the cold war.

Unlike other countries we are fortunate to live in relative peace without any significant terror threats and there is no major market demand for gas masks as part of an indispensable survival kit.

However, the UK has a growing number of ‘preppers’ who concentrate on disaster preparedness but this is nothing on the scale of US preppers who, in the post 9/11 environment, take survival as a real and present threat and the sale of gas masks has spiralled.

Whatever you want gas masks for, here at Essex Surplus we have a large range of gas masks and our descriptions are as full as possible to fully inform.

Contact Essex Surplus on 01245 250770 to check our latest selection of gas masks or to see if we can source a specific gas mask.
