Hey, has anyone used the power respirators / gas masks? I am on a regional SWAT team and we just sent away for a test model....our SWAT team was doing a scenario with gas...breathing, talking on the radio and trying to perform, I thought there's got to be better technology nowadays....found the power respirators on the internet hadn't seen them before in Michigan....any comments would be helpful...

We have had Scott PAPRs for about a year, but never deployed them operationally.  They are definetely nice in hot weather, but you are limited to the battery life.  Did you get one yet or not?
