I know this, its just a recommendation.

To answer your questions-

Self life- The mask itself will last for the next 20 years. I say this because I know guys that have been using the same unit for 20+ years.

Cost per unit- $60-80 dollars. Not a lot, but it is so worth the money on a fire.

Space they take up- They come in a small yellow pouch, a small package. Pic below-


I cant say how fast the distributors will deliver, your mileage may vary.

Ease of use- Super easy, just wrap around your face and velcro in the back.

breathing restrictions- For me, none. But they are the same as those construction masks you guys are using in the field already.

And just so were clear, there are models without head straps. The basic HS2 is the best in my book.
