The face piece is made of two layers of beige rubber, the outermost being milled to slow aging, it sports a 5 points head-harness and two "unbreakable" glass eye pieces. The filter intake is at the front and faces slightly forward, while the exhale system is made by two exhale valves, one for each cheek, covered by a removable lid. Inside the mask there is a tissot system made of black rubber which helps to prevent fogging.

The kit the mask was issued with depended on the use. Most SAB masks are found with a T.35 satchel, but it's not known if it is historically accurate. Some SAB masks are found with talephonic gear, but again, it's not known if it is historically accurate.
