I only have a problem with asbestos after I chew it with my mercury fillings.

Solid asbestos will not harm you. It's the dust that is a problem. Asbestos used in buildings and such actually doesn't pose much danger until it is actually being removed.

Ok, so here is the source: http://gasmasks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoid=41924928

Like I said this could be completely inaccurate, but I thought it was enough to at least be a bit concerned before using one of those filters. And yes, the instructions and box did have English written all over them but that doesn't mean that the filter they packaged with the mask wasn't repurposed from some strange Soviet surplus bin...but who knows. I was only going by the identification number stamped onto the filter.

@lavikinga: Funny, since I thought that @deadersocks was our old friend @dealzombie, returned in new guise, just to amuse us. The only difference in speech pattern is that there's been no request for brainnnnnnnnsssssssssssss.

I believe the original filters that would have been used with these masks did have asbestos in them, however, seeing that these are standard NATO filters, they will have put new, modern filters with them. I have a couple of these masks at home, and have tried them with the filters. Note that they come in a box written in English (possibly bad English, but English none the less.) These masks were Russian issue, and would not have come in an English box originally.

Is very good, know. Not order child mask, wanted adult. But got child mask instead. Was unfortunate. At least know not to try anything with child mask. Thank for warning.
