The XM50 Joint Service General Purpose Mask (JSGPM) incorporates some very advanced technologies including reduced breathing resistance (estimated at 50%), improved vision, and greater comfort. Not only does the XM50 JSGPM incorporate the most advanced filters currently available on any mask, but the eye protection/optical element of the mask. It is the next-generation mask for all U.S. joint service ground forces.
