I read most of the article and found it somewhat interesting. Readers should note that it is not current and when he refers the the World Trade Center Bombing, he is talking about the 1993 event. It is somewhat confusing without that fact. <br><br>

That product looks a bit scary to me. The hood is rubber, how fire resistant could that be and what happens to your head if it lights off? Ever seen rubber burn? Also, the filter portion is not isolated to the nose and mouth, so you could essentailly be rebreathing the air from inside the entire hood instead of exchanging air through the filter. I would stay away from that product. <br><br>Consider a product called Evac-U-8 mentioned elsewhere in this forum or search on the web.<br><br>
