Xcaper - Fire Escape Mask
The same mask used and endorsed by professional firefighters. The kit comes with one Xcaper mask and one practice mask.
The Xcaper® filter contains a revolutionary, state of the art, all natural moist filtering agent (gel) that absorbs water soluble (anhydrite) gases and smoke particulates common to wildland fires as well as those found in structural overhaul situations. Independent laboratory tests show that the Xcaper Filter filters particulate matter down to 3/10th of one micron and most gases including Carbon Monoxide. The moistening agent (gel) is an odorless and tasteless all-natural plant extract, with an increased viscosity for enhanced breathe ability. An antibacterial agent is added to the gel to ensure each filter's freshness. Field tests by wildland fire fighters show that the filtering agent will not steam in a burn-over situation.
The Xcaper filter cloth has a special weave for easier breathing and is made of 100% polyester that passes the California 117E flammability test (direct flame for 38 seconds with no ignition). A Hydrolon finish promotes the wicking of moisture off the wearers face. The filter medium that allows each filter to fit every face is an expanded polystyrene bead.
Field-testing and used by over 40,000 firefighters during the last four fire seasons shows that this state-of-the-art filtration system protects your lungs from most of the hazards found in smoke.
