Respro cycling masks, ideal for urban preppers

So imagine being the urban prepper about town when something big goes down

such as another 911 / 7-7 type event, or perhaps a natural disaster, or terror outrage

or even another multi borough mass rioting and looting event.

Imagine the air being full of smoke and fumes and dust from burning and damaged

vehicles and cars and you are trying to bug in or out, or escape or patrol.

Trying to survive in a damaged or destroyed city block with tear inducing smoke and

dust making your eyes stream and you struggle to breath without inhaling gut

wrenching muck. Most urban preppers already keep polarised sun glasses or script

eye glasses; quite a few have goggles from industrial or workshop goggles,

motorcycle or skiing goggles but what about protecting your lungs and airways?

The City filter contains DYNAMIC A.C.C (Activated Charcoal Cloth) and works

on the basis of adsorption and chemisorption of organic vapours and acid

gases.

Product Data

Dynamic A.C.C is laminated on both sides with a particulate material to prevent

irritant dusts from entering the respiratory system.

About Anti Pollution Masks

In 2005, it was estimated that approximately 1,000 accelerated deaths and 1,000

extra respiratory hospital admissions occurred in London as a result of PM10 air

pollution. In truth, Londoners only have to see what trucks and buses are kicking out

to be sold into the concept of protecting their health. Masks provide the only way to

block out lung irritants and other pollutants, many of which are carcinogens. So what

can an anti-pollution mask do to help? Masks help prevent lung irritation and cancer.

Many different pollutants - when mixed together - can cause irritation to respiratory

systems. Wearing a mask helps to prevent cancer as there are known carcinogenic

agents such as pyrene and benzene present in petrol fumes. There are also less

weighty reasons for wearing a mask. The masks are an awareness statement to the

other road users in cleaning up the environment.

About the Respro brand

Respro product designer Harry Cole had "in your face" experience of exhaust fumes

and city smog as a London cycle courier and this is still a significant and growing

problem. In 1990, Respro launched the City mask, the first cyclist’s pollution mask

and it is still in demand today. Over the last decade, awareness of air pollution has

grown and now cyclists can choose from a wider range of styles and filters to

accommodate more individual needs. Respro masks are supplied with replaceable

filter inserts and its work keeping extra inserts in your kit.

Respro Anti Pollution Bandit Scarf.

Another alternative from the same company is the Bandit Scarf Filter, which is also

more stylish and apparently popular with young student radicals trying to mitigate the

effects of CS or Tear Gas deployed by the authorities when the student protests turn

violent.
