Historical reference.

The gas mask bag of the 1936 model was sewn from canvas or tarpaulin. Inside the bag there were three compartments, and on the outside there were two voluminous pockets on the sides (for which it was nicknamed “eared”). A ribbon with a carabiner and a ring were sewn into the rear side seams of the bag for attaching the bag to the fighter’s body in the “ready” position. The rest of the time, this braid was rolled up and stored in the bag.

Such bags were produced until approximately 1942.
