There is some slight surface cracking on one side but is still very pliable and not dry. Mask does exhibit some soiling and wear.
The Rubber hose is very flexible with no rot as well. Some corrosion to the hardware. All straps are intact and functional. The rubber clip that holds the nosewire in place has been lost over time.
The Harness does exhibit some soiling as well but remains in good condition. A very solid and hard to find Mask.
