Ops-Core Special Operations Tactical Respirator

The Ops-Core Special Operations Tactical Respirator, or SOTR, is a half mask particulate respirator designed to provide the highest level of protection against a wide range of harmful contaminants while still allowing for normal use of weapons systems and other mission-critical equipment. The front-mounted filter allows for quick, one-handed filter changes and enhanced the field of vision. Easily adjustable suspension straps, head harness, velcro straps, and optional O2 strap allows the user to configure their respiratory protection to their exact mission or environment. The SOTR integrates seamlessly with NVGs and other tactical gear, such as the Ops-Core FAST SF Ballistic Helmet, AMP Communication Headset, and Mk1 Performance Protective Eyewear, to create a customizable protective head borne system.

    But does it protect against slow burning gun misfire residue?

    mmmmm, lubricant mist


    Cops will want to buy these because they look cool, but I didn’t see if it’s NIOSH or OSHA approved. If not, big no-no.

      I looked on NIOSH’s approved equipment list and it’s not under Gentex’s list of approved models. Doesn’t mean it’s not undergoing the certification though. No listings at all under Ops Core.

      OSHA doesn’t certify respirators, only NIOSH.
