The Wall Street Occupiers, despite attempting to maintain a calm and non-violent march, may eventually need a supply of Breath of Life Masks in case their planned demonstrations escalate to include confrontations with the law enforcers.

A row of kevlar-clad, masked riot officers is undoubtedly a scary sight, particularly for first-time protestors whose message is inherently peaceful, but billy clubs and riot shields can only cause so much damage; it’s the tear gas that ought to strike fear in their hearts. In the event a legitimate confrontation breaks out, carrying a pair of Breath of Life Masks will no longer be a luxury, it’ll be a necessary tool to escape. Weighing less than half an ounce, these $35 covers will fit into your bag in excessive numbers. After placing the mask over your head, you’ll have 15-20 minutes of safety from smoke and gas bombs, allowing you to deftly sneak out of any police perimeter and of to safety! Let’s just hope you never need one of these.
