Hi I was considering purchasing one of your very awesome looking "Gorilla" gas masks but alas I am not sure what size to get...I wear a size large hat but I didn't want to end up getting the large on and having it not fit on my head...if I could get measurements of the inside on one that would be great, thanks man...

What are the measurements for your head?

P.S
You might want to send a PM to idle vityaz or Taurus. They seem to be the most experienced with this sort of thing.

Here is a size chart recycled from an old CCCP Poster designed to address this exact problem;

Gas mask PBF size Vertical circumference of the head (pic.2.Cool, cm facial height (see pic.2.9), cm

Chin to Skull; Top of bridge to chin;
0 64-65,5 12,5>
1 66-67,5 12,5>
2 68-69,5 12,5< (large) or 12,5>(medium)
3 70-71,5 12,5<
4 72 and more 12,5<

As you can see, you'll need to take a tape measure or something equivalent of accuracy, and measure the top of the bridge of your nose down to your chin and convert to CM, then do the vertical circumference of your head, from the base of your chin all around the largest rear-top part of your skull to get the measurements needed; then again, convert to CM and use the chart above to see if you need size 0-4.

I'm proud of you Taurus! Very Happy *A little tear falls down on his cheek*

Or what you would call "Epic explanation of the answer to the question!*
