    Not sure if any of you have come across this product before:

    https://www.technonllc.com/pd1

    I was contacted by the distributor some time ago, and I ran a practical test, in our fire dept. ‘smoke diving’ facility which you can see here:

    Potentially a nice addition to EDC. I routinely carry mine if I’m in areas where I’ll be using a subway or similar. I’m sure there are a whole host or circumstances where this item could come in useful :)

    After watching the video and reading the specs, it sounds like a great product. I just added a couple to my list! Thanks for the post, Toby

    Looks like it would work well on someone who talks to much (or won’t at all). lol

    Toby,
    Great item for anyone working/living in a multi story building or uses subways every day. Just remember it’s not intended as protection from the high heat of a fire. Having that bag melt on your head would suck.

    True that, but most people die from smoke inhalation.

    Glockerman, True however most of those deaths are residential fires where the occupants are sleeping and never wake due to carbon monoxide poisoning. The other fire deaths for the most part are in public buildings with inadequate egress for the number of people within the building and have large fires that developed rapidly.

    The first group can only be saved by using alarms and or sprinkler systems so they can escape.

    The second group always has unusual circumstances contributing to large fires and blocked exits. In the case of the hotel fires more sleeping people. If you manage to get one of these over your head, you would still need to negotiate the other people in the building without being crushed at the doors. Then find an alternative exit having no visibility while avoiding the heat of the fire. I’m just saying don’t expect it to do miracles.
