We promised ourselves that we wouldn’t succumb to any manky pig related popvox posts, but this one was just too delicious to pass over. The EVAC-Hood Respiratory Protection Hood is clearly designed to help bods escape from hazardous conditions such as fires, smoke and gases, but the incredibly thoughtful retailers have now slapped a hasty ‘protects against swine flu, limited stocks buy now’ notice on the thing and shoved it out to the blogs and highways in order to drum up some scare business. Sometimes rampant capitalism is just sublime, isn’t it? We think they should have called it the Respiratory and Taleban Protection Hood just to be doubly sure. £9.79.
Evac-Hood is a pocket/purse sized emergency escape mask that has been produced to protect the wearers respiratory system from potentially harmful elements and particles such as smoke, fumes, micro-organisms including Anthrax, harmful chemicals, organic gases and bacteria including MRSA superbug and Swine Fever. One size fits all and it can be worn over glasses, beard and even long hair.
