The FM50 is the newest generation CBRN (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear) full face mask specifically designed to meet the latest NATO military mask requirements. The FM50 is the NATO  version of the M50, or the new Joint Services General Purpose Mask (JSPGPM), which is the mask of choice for all branches of the U.S. Military.  The masks are identical except in name.  

Mask System comes from the factory with FM50 Mask, Faceform 72601-53, one FM61 Filter Pair 71601-1-1 (one filter for each side of mask), Clear Outsert Assembly 70501-156, User Manual 71601-30, Universal Carrier 72601-32 (black only).  Does not include a Sunlight Outsert, but this is available from us on this website.  

First a note on buying gas masks.  Avoid buying imported or surplus masks, as these are of questionable quality…the US military has spent millions switching to this mask, and for good reason: it is a vast improvement over previous masks. If you find a mask you like, make sure the mask comes sealed in plastic, in the original box, with filters sealed as well.  If any of these criteria are missing, the mask is almost certainly used or stolen from the military.  Additionally, ask all sellers where the mask was obtained.  If it is not from directly from the manufacturer, there’s a fair probability that its used, or has some other issue.  For example, exposure to excessive UV rays can break down the rubber and seals, prematurely aging the mask.  The point is there is no sense in risking death or serious lung injury from purchasing a used mask that may have been disposed of because of equipment failure, exposure to a toxic gases, or some other issue.  Also, a new mask should be also be reasonably priced, so if it sounds like too good of a deal, it IS probably used despite claim to the contrary.  Our masks are 100% new straight from Avon Protection Systems…they are NOT military surplus or used. We strive to offer our masks at the lowest price possible, and due to our volume sales, we are usually able to do so for our customers (other legitimate distributors sell this same mask for over $1000).     

The FM50 is the choice of America’s elite for good reason.  The wide visor offers superior field of vision over traditional respirators, greatly enhancing the compatibility with weapons and sights. The FM50 twin filter conformal system sits close against the face, providing the operational user with high protection and very low breathing resistance. It has the added benefit of distributing the weight better, making the mask much more comfortable to wear as compared to masks with one filter. Self- seal valves allow the user to change filters without the need to hold your breath, greatly reducing the risk of contamination.  The filters are effective against nerve agents (G series and V series), blister agents (Mustard, Lewisite), blood agents (Hydrogen Cyanide, Cyanogen Choride, Chloropicrin), and riot control agents (CS, CN and OC).  

The FM50 is my personal favorite over all other masks, including the C50 and FM53.  The FM50 is much more conformable to wear than single filter gas masks.  Instead of having one heavy filter hanging off one side of the face, the FM50’s two filter design spreads the bulk and weight of the filters to a more balanced position on each side of the face.  Also, the filters are thinner and more conformal, so the center of gravity of each filter is far closer to the face.  In combat where rapid head movement is necessary when scanning or responding to threats, the FM50 really shines because head movement is far less impeded than with a single filter design. 

The FM50 has another unique design that is not found on the C50 or FM53, or any other mask that I am aware off…a self-seal disk valve.  In addition to the inlet-outlet disks valves you find on other masks, the self-seal disk valve protects the user from outside air when swapping filters.  This of course is very important if the user is forced to change filters in a contaminated environment, like you’d find in a chemical or nuclear exchange. 

Finally, I like the FM50 over all others because it was selected by the US military, which could have purchased any mask it wanted, but chose this mask after some of the most rigorous testing on the planet. 

Other Features: • Panoramic visor provides outstanding field of vision and wearer recognition • Chlorobutyl rubber and silicone blend ensures a high degree of flexibility and comfort for extended use. • Unique twin conformal canisters provide balanced weight. • Provides excellent anti-fogging qualities and reduces Co2 due to superior internal air flow management system. • Interfaces effectively with hooded CBRN garments. • High flow, fail safe hydration system connects to canteen or hydration bladder. • Highly flexible anti-scratch and impact resistant visor. • Reflex seal with low profile brow for helmet compatibility.

Available in three sizes (S, M, L) for customized protection to accommodate all operators. A small size is suitable for most women, teenage kids and smaller men.  A medium sizes works for the majority of men.  Very large men with large heads will need a large (you probably know if you have a large head!). If you are think you are in between sizes, it is better to have a slightly smaller mask than one slighty too big, as you can still get a good seal on a slightly smaller mask but if the mask is too large, a good seal may not be possible. These are just general all cases, be sure to follow Avon instructions in regards to fitment and sizing (see owner's manual).
