This is a new (NOS) genuine Polish military gas mask complete with all accessories. (See pictures).
Constructed of heavy duty form fitting rubber and very adjustable.

The MP-4 was one of many Eastern European clones of the M17 mask, and was issued to the Polish People Army.

The Polish MP-4 is unlicensed clone of the famous US M17 gas mask series. First prototype models were made in 1970.
They were made of black rubber with silver eye lens frames, and voice emitter.

The MP-4 only had minor updates to its American counterpart. Most notable differences are lenses,
they are slightly farther apart, the frames and voice diaphragm being a silver colour, as well as the "nose" being slightly less pronounced.
First production models being made from olive-green rubber. It wasn't until 1983 when they changed the mixture and rubber to a grey colour, albeit being a change to the mask in general, it still retained its name.

The Polish MP-4B was a LIMITED-production version of the MP-4. It only had minor differences from it's base design however.

Around the 1990s, drinking tubes became a popular feature for military and civilian masks. The mask differs from the MP-4 with the aforementioned drinking tube and by a different voice emitter cover. The drinking tube is located on the bottom and is covered by a cap, which can be threaded on and off, similar to the Israeli M15. It can also be moved around, the wearer could move the tube closer to their mouth if desired. The mask was soon pushed aside, as did the cheek filter design for the superior STANAG compatible MP-5. Then later by the newer MP-6.

MP-4 carrier design is similiar to original M17s. The main pouch contains place for mask and anti-fog device, and like all other pockets is tampered by metal poppers. Bag has two little external bays to hide bag straps when not in use and bigger one for field bandage.
The mask was nicknamed the "Bulldog" due to its appearance.
