Mask overview Edit

The S.I.P. 1 is an helmet style mask made with cheap and thin rubber. Its eye pieces are made of acetylcellulose, in the front it has the exhale valve and under it the filter thread.

Filter Edit

The filter was a small cylinder filled with blocking substances. This kind of filter was better than the P.C. 30 filter but worse than the later civilian filters, which would replace this kind of filter in the S.I.P. 1 kit.

Kit Edit

The mask came in a metal tube with its filter, a small box with a spare exhale valve, a stick of anti-fogging soap and an instructional pamphlet.
