    thanks lebus12, what would the metal plate in the bottom of the bag be for? you can see it a little easier on this lightened picture

    Perhaps to protect the mask...It was used by horsemen too.

    The plate is for the filter to rest on, the inlet is on the base of the filter so without the plate it would be obstructed by the fabric of the carrier.

    Thanks,
