When exactly would you put it on? With bio attacks there seems to be
no hint of exposure until several days later. And with chem attacks,
most of the agents work by skin contact, so the mask wouldn't help, right?

So if you do carry a gas mask in your backpack, when do you open it up
and put the mask on?
