More information about the product
The MP-5 is constructed of semi-rigid butyl rubber and features a flexible, polymer panoramic visor and a 40mm STANAG thread. It has an oral-nasal cup, a drinking tube system, and a voice diaphragm. The drinking tube can be rotated on the inside by turning then nozzle on the outside of the mask. It uses a six-point head harness with rubber straps, and uses two hooks on the bottom chin sections, allowing the wearer to quickly secure the mask in the event of an emergency.
Since the mask is semi-solid in construction, it can be uncomfortable for certain head sizes and shapes, usually remedied by adjusting the straps accordingly. The panoramic visor is also prone to yellowing when exposed to UV rays for extended periods, and can smear and smudge easily depending on how it is cleaned.
Due to the large number of surplus Soviet masks and filters left over from the Cold War, the Polish developed the FP-5 filter, giving it a "universal thread" that can fit both STANAG 4155 and GOST 40mm masks while maintaining an airtight seal. FP-5 filters come standard with most MP-5 masks. The filters do not contain asbestos.
The carrier is a direct copy of the French ARF-A version, featuring stitched, rubberized canvas. It contains external pouches for the water bottle and drinking tube and features a tray in the bottom that holds the carrier's shape and holds the filter. Normally comes in a standard green, though woodland and desert variants do exist, mostly for the ARF-A.
