You gotta be carful when it comes to gas masks. Some of them aren't worth it and won't help you one bit. Here is a website selling "Approved Gas Masks". I'll assume they've been tested and pass some standard in order to be approved. Also, depending on when/if you'll need to use it you may want to consider a side canister to that you'll still be able to shoulder and sight a rifle. Something like this. This is a Finnish M61 mask. Identical to the US M9 mask. Also, for a gas mask to be effective, you can't have a beard. It would allow gas to seep in around the edge.

Any of them can leak if not applied properly or if they are not sized correctly or cared for the right way. I have had more experience with them than I wish. In most cases any is better than none.

Those are nice but pricey. A gas mask is sorta like insurance. You have it hoping you'll never need to use it.
