The Russian GP-5 gas mask is a Soviet-era gas mask that was widely used during the Cold War. 

  • Genuine Russian Military issue

  • Screw-on filter
  • Sealed plexiglass eyepieces
  • Olive Drab carry bag with adjustable shoulder strap and flapped 4" x 4" side pockets

Design and Features:

  1. Construction: The GP-5 is made from latex rubber, making it durable and flexible. It typically comes in a gray color.
  2. Lenses: The mask features round glass eyepieces, which provide a wide field of vision.
  3. Filter: It uses a 40mm GOST filter, which is a screw-on type filter cartridge. The original filters contain activated charcoal to absorb harmful gases.
  4. Breathing Valve: The mask has an exhalation valve to allow the user to exhale easily.
  5. Sizes: The GP-5 comes in different sizes to ensure a snug fit for various face shapes and sizes.

Historical Context:

  1. Era of Use: The GP-5 was introduced in the 1960s and remained in production until the early 1990s.
  2. Military and Civilian Use: It was widely issued to both military personnel and civilians in the Soviet Union and other Warsaw Pact countries.
  3. Training and Protection: The mask was used for training exercises and provided protection against chemical, biological, and radiological agents.

Safety Concerns:

  1. Asbestos Content: Some older GP-5 filters have been found to contain asbestos, which poses serious health risks if inhaled. It is generally recommended not to use these original filters.
