Russian Gas mask filter, is it safe?
This might not be the right forum for this (please feel free to redirect me) but i have gotten great help here before so i thought i'd take a chance and ask here. I recently bought a gas mask from a street trader and i was wondering if this filter is safe to breathe through. Thank you in advance.

I doubt it will contain asbestos being 1970's but personally I wouldnt breath through a 36 year old filter. It could be full of dust and who knows what chemicals.
Just out of interest, why do you need to wear it?
Nah just thought it would be good to know the risks involved if i was to wear it! Thanks for the answer by the way!
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
