2019 | The Ultimate Zombie Suit: CBRN Preparedness | Haz-Suit



hi folks Canadian prepper here so the topic of today is going to be protecting yourself against chemical biological radiological and nuclear threats so let's get to it so there was a new product that was released by the Mira safety company called the has suit they're used by the Department of Defense and militaries around the world and that's the suit we're gonna be reviewing today so a brief outline of what we're gonna talk about today is do Preppers need hazmat suits what are the different types of suits and what do they prevent against we'll also briefly touch on gas masks in this video as well and we're gonna talk about what makes the has suit unique so I thought this video would be well-timed in light of recent geopolitical turmoil in the world particularly tensions rising in the Middle East right now there's increased risk of asymmetrical attacks on critical infrastructure Ebola concerns in Central Africa and of course the ever-evolving threat of avian influenza in multiple places around the world so the need for CBRN protection is at an all-time high you could arguably say now CBRN stands for chemical biological radiological and nuclear protection this means it's something that CBRN certified will protect you from these various contaminants however it needs to be made abundantly clear that no suit can protect you against ionizing radiation the only practical and effective protection against gamma radiation for most people is going to be to go underground so there's four levels of hazmat protection the house suit would fall under level b level a suits are beyond the price point of most people as these involve fully enclosed self-contained breathing apparatus 'as with a starting price of one thousand dollars and up realistically level b protection is going to be sufficient for most emergency preparedness needs level b suits are going to vary in terms of their tensile strength and the types of chemicals that they are impervious to now let's talk briefly about the difference between level C and level B suits now there's two general types of suits there's Tyvek suits which will prevent hazardous particles down to a one micron in size and then there are chemical protection suits Tyvek suits are very low cost they range between ten to twenty dollars but their limited use they only protect against dry particulates they're not going to protect against a lot of chemicals that are gonna have a very low tensile strength so they are prone to tearing or damaging which could be a life-ending thing if you're talking about a pathogen which is airborne and of high lethality chemical suits will protect against all biological contaminants up to one hundred and eighty chemical agents nerve agents and will offer a much higher resistance against alpha and beta radioactive particles soar if there was a pandemic if you had to operate in a contaminated environment if you had to rescue someone in this environment if you had to enter a quarantine zone or if you had to have contact with people who were sick or were not wearing personal protective equipment in those unpredictable conditions we're dealing with people that you don't know and you can't trust and you may well be put in these situations whether you want to or not I would not trust a simple Tyvek suit just due to the volatility of the situation they can tear very easily and they don't offer the same level of protection so chemical suits offer not only penetrative protection but they also offer permeate of protection meaning that liquid chemical agents cannot sit there and fester and ultimately permeate into the fabric a standard Tyvek membrane is not going to be able to protect you if compromised by liquid chemical suits like the house suit will protect you from gas and vapors and various chemical warfare agents now in terms of reusing a suit like this there's going to be a decontamination process so in order to do that in order to facilitate that you're going to have to have the means to decontaminate because Tyvek suits are so cheap I personally would have both Tyvek suits and a has suit because both can be useful in different situations for instance if you had to make a quarantine zone on your property or within your home and you knew that the people within that quarantine zone were immobilized or they were not a threat to you in that sort of situation I would support the Tyvek suit because it's not going to require excessive articulation of the suit it's not gonna put a lot of stress on the suit it's gonna be an in-and-out job now if you had to enter a more precarious unpredictable situation where there are gonna be other environmental hazards that's when I would sport the house suit because it's just a far more durable material with higher tensile strength which is gonna be far more forgiving in terms of abrasion and tear resistance so just a bit about the company who makes the house suit it is made in America it's made by the mirror safety company in cooperation with the Kapler company Kapler and mere safety both make suits for the military various civil defense professionals around the world and the same material that's used in this suit is used in other suits by the Department of Defense so Mira safety also makes the Mira safety cm 6m tactical gas mask which is quickly becoming my gas mask of choice for a variety of reasons it's a comprehensive CBRN mask that has a built-in speech diaphragm this is going to allow your speech to be audible because if you don't have a speech diaphragm on your gas mask it's going to be very hard for you to operate in the team because people are not going to be able to hear you you're gonna be using hand signals it also has a built-in drinking straw which is Camelback compatible but they do provide you with a canteen and I should say right from the get-go that if you're wearing a suit like this you absolutely need the gas mask to match their tactical gas mask is hypoallergenic it takes 40 millimeter stand Oh NATO threads they also have a patented gas mask filter which has a shelf life of 20 years so it's the longest shelf life gas mask filter on the market and I should say that we sell all of this stuff at Canadian preparedness com I only retail the best products in my store other things I like about the mask is that it has a wide field of vision it's compatible with a firearm so you can cheek up to it a little bit better than you can with the sge mesto series although those masks are great mass there world renowned company that's the other gas masks that we sell but this is a more cost-effective complete package and you get a very similar polycarbonate visor I personally haven't done any ballistics testing on the visor but from what I hear it's quite comparable to the methyl product line and of course it meets all of the respiratory protective equipment standards to be considered a fully fledged CBR and mask one of the main requirements for a mask to be considered CBRN is that it has bromo butyl rubber construction this is going to allow you mustard gas protection which really is the gold standard in terms of measuring the quality of a gas masks now how many instances are you going to require mustard gas protection it's probably unlikely realistically speaking but if you want the top of the hop then you're gonna want that bromo butyl rubber within there so needless to say the house suit and the CM 6m gas masks are completely compatible you can also use this house suit of course with a external self-contained breathing apparatus I couldn't tell you where to find one of those that might be something if you wanted to look into if you were really serious about stepping up your cbrn game now the great thing about these gas masks and the suit is that they're also going to be available in kids sizes so I believe the suits come in six different sizes and the gas masks are going to come in three sizes one for adults two for children so the whole family is gonna be covered now you may think it ends there in terms of being protected against all possible contaminants but of course you still have the issue of the gloves and the boots and some of the openings so for that the Company recommends chemical resistant boots Hill over boots in this demonstration I'm sporting rubber boots which for the purpose of biological hazards anyways that should be sufficient a heavier duty Boot Hill rubber glove would be ideal and then put another plastic glove over that glove just to provide a little bit of extra protection and you're also gonna want to tape together all of the junctions in which this various apparel meets each other so you're gonna want to tape your boots to the pads so you're gonna want to tape your cuffs to the gloves you're also gonna want to tape up the flap on the zipper on the torso just to give you a little bit of extra protection there and you'll want to tape where the mask meets the hood of the suit one thing about this suit is that mobility is not restricted at all I'm currently wearing a large here and there was no position that I could put my body in or was I ever straining the suit in a way which could lead to a material failure so you get full range of motion which is going to be very crucial if you have to move somebody or something heavy if you're in a combative situation that abrasion resistance is also really gonna come in handy no there is no shelf life on this the company boldly suggests that 20 years this thing should still be functional I wouldn't put it in an area which was too dry or exposed to sunlight or anything like that and I would not put it under high stress so don't put it under a giant box of mountain house food or anything like that because you don't want to make stressful folds in the material now I would be very remiss if I didn't tell you some of the potential downsides of a suit like this one thing I realized really quick is that this suit gets very very hot and I guess the word on the street is is that all chemical hazmat suits are pretty much insufferably hot so if you are going to get this suit you're going to absolutely need a gas mask that has a drinking system because you are going to sweat like a maniac even after just wearing this for 15 minutes you're gonna start to sweat if you had to wear it in a very hot climate I personally don't know how they're able to do it in these hotter climates where they're wearing these suits to combat things like the Ebola virus I'm guessing that the fear of contracting the contagion is enough to make the heat bearable for the simple fact that it's gonna keep you alive and keep you safe but man does it ever get hot so you're gonna lose a lot of fluids and you're definitely going to need a constant water source you're also going to need some tape for the seams now in this demonstration I just you duct tape ideally you'd be using a form of chemical tape I'm thinking in most cases duct tape is probably gonna be sufficient especially if you go red green on it if you don't know red green is he's a Canadian comedian who fixes everything with duct tape and with enough duct tape you could fix the space station in my opinion so I hope you found something of use in this video and like I said if you are prepping on a budget and you want to get into the gas mask level of emergency preparedness mirus safety gas masks is probably the most cost effective you get the most comprehensive cheap package now if you can't afford any of this stuff getting in ninety nine gas masks and Tyvek suits or the curette anti viral face mask that we sell a canadian preparedness com are probably gonna be your most cost-effective bet for $20 you can get yourself some measure of pandemic protection it's not going to be nearly as effective of what I've talked about today but it will give you some protection so if you have any other questions about this stuff I'll do my best to answer those in the comment section below thanks for watching stay safe out there guys stay vigilant because things could pop off at any time now it's getting pretty crazy out there so so take care

  1. There’s just one problem, when you take the suit off, you’ll contaminate yourself with whatever nasty stuff it was protecting you against. Toxic chemicals, nerve gas, radioactive particles needs to be properly removed from these suits and I doubt this comes with a decontamination station.

  2. Can one of canadian prepper long time loyal fans answer a question for me here it is " has this man ever talked about the new world order causing most of these scenarios he speaks about? Anyone that could help me i would greatly appreciate it.

  3. full body bulletproof suit also helps, and being proofed to everything with a suit is too many suits. septic tank containers are the real deal, if you can make them survivable with limited knowledge and resources like purifies ash air and water, or if you can actually bury one in the first place. suits only let you flee, which is the most maneagable and sensible.

  4. Another important part of CBRN is the proper donning and duffing of CBRN kit.

    Good books are https://usacac.army.mil/sites/default/files/misc/doctrine/CDG/cdg_resources/manuals/ATP/atp3_11x37.pdf

    https://info.publicintelligence.net/USArmy-SF-CBRN.pdf

  5. Very important component to CBRN set up is the detection equipment too.
    Gas masks have their limits too as in oxygen deficient environments as in low areas for example chorine gas, it replaces the oxygen or in sewers H2S.
    Having an ERG can help identify the dangerous goods if the hazard is coming commercial goods.

  6. I'm glad you said that these suits get hot for people who have never worn a hazmat suit. I have worn a many different tyvek suits from my job as an asbestos / lead abator, Class C suits when working in the Alkaline unit of the oil Refinery, and Mopp level 4 during our regular chem attack exercises for Military. I've been making a living in these suits for the past 6 years. These suits are HOT. You have to remember that these suits are designed for nothing to get inside them, therefore nothing can get out either. All your body heat just stays inside. Even in below freeing weather these kinds of suits will make you sweat after a pro longed period of time. You add the fact that you are working into that and you can get tired very quickly. You're going to want a drinking tube on your gas mask, if not you will surly dehydrate after a handful of hours in one of these.

  7. I am a member of a Hazmat team.  Wearing a Level A or B suit our working time is 15-20 minutes inside the Hot Zone due to Heat Stress.  I am in the Deep South so it very Humid and Hot.

  8. I’ve been an oil spill and haz-mat responder for over a decade and you are absolutely wrong about the differences between Level B and Level C persona protective equipment. Both systems may use a variety of full-body suits to include various versions of Tyvek, Kappler, etc. These suits are designed to protect from chemical splashes (different materials provide different levels of protection from different chemicals) and dust protection. Neither level B or Level C will provide much vapor protection. And, the only difference between level B and C is that B uses supplied air and C is a respirator. Level A is, as you said, fully encapsulated and will protect against vapor.

    Regarding re-use of PPE, you must know the contaminant and how to decon your PPE appropriately if you’re going to re-use it. Most agencies consider PPE a one time use item for a reason.

    It’s also imperative that you “fit test” your respirator to make sure the contaminant doesn’t leak through.

  9. :35 looks like a cheap knockoff of the Intergalactic music video by the Beastie Boys.

  10. I think you can also call it a sauna suit, I would sweat so much I would need one-way drain valves installed. I think I have now seen the ultimate winter camping clothing. 🙂

    Thanks CP always enjoy the products and information

  11. If i had to put on a suite like on the pic all the time well lets just say i would rather charge a fema camp with guns blazing. Hey canadian prepper guy lets see how good you are answer me this why does fema have contracts with major canadian cities? And how many fema camps are in canada? These questions have a shit ton to do with prepping.

  12. It depends on what your using the suit for, in an NBC situation you have to know alot or the suit wont do you a bit of good, knowledge is the best defense in a NBC situation. That suit wont do much for Chemical as most modern weapons are acidic, bio would depend if it was spread through air, contact or ingestion but the best defense is stay away from the contamination and nuclear is all about proximity to blast, fallout and wind direction from blast zone. But the best defense is just to stay away from contaminated areas.

  13. So…

    You do have the correct decontamination equipment to remove said hazmat suit (a proper enclosed cubicle type deal- not open air)?
    Sterilizing equipment? Anti- viral protection?

    Because that suit isn't worth shit unless you can safely decontaminate it without bare skin touching. Same as those mask filters- they are meant to be single use only for viral instances, otherwise they become a carrier & shedder of the virus.

  14. So would a silicon impregnated rain suit and a mask be okay from diseases or do I need something better?

    Edit:and gloves and boots. I'm not an idiot.

  15. You need to have cooling garments with liquid and ventilation.
    You also need to armor up with at least knee pads to protect the suit as much as yourself. Go runnin' off through them thar woods and thou wilst tear thineself a hole in thine garment of protection.
    Good video.

  16. You can get an scba tank at a scuba shop and im sure you can find an scba backpack at a first responder surplus store like galls or lapg

  17. Tychem10000 is a badass suit though. They make enclosed versions and hooded versions. The truth is that unless you have that enclosed scba version your goal is to get out of that area asap. Use these "level B suits" to escape a CBRN situation coming to your location because thats what they were made for. Not the other way around.

  18. This is one of the last preps to prioritize. It is the absolutely least likely to be used.
    For a pandemic like flu you simply just wear a good quality dust mask, no need for a suit or a full gas mask.

  19. When taping gloves you can buy plastic cuffs that expand the sleeves and gloves to a flat fit so there are no folds where the tape seals them together. Also you use your hands a lot when your in the suit. Always wear a secondary glove on the inside. We wear p2 gloves. Made of neoprene. Latex gloves do not provide chemical protection. Always tape overlapping and leave tabs at the end on your taping areas for quick peel off when you have to get out. Glove to cuff is dependent on above head or below work. If you are working above then gloves should go over the cuff. If below then the cuff goes over the glove. Helps to shed chemicals in the right direction. Just a couple tips.
