Another AUER made Gasjńckchen but on this variation the air hose inlet hose barb and VM air filter screw connection is on the wearer's back and not front mounted as in the first gasjńckchen shown . Notice the original instruction manual shows this change in design . The function of this gas protection suit is the same but mounting location is different . There are also variations such as the rubber connection on the ends of the wire reinforced air hose is made from white rubber and not black . Also another variation is the design of the black bakelite plastic air release valve on top of the head , function is the same just different shape .
