* More primitive versions can be found in the PlagueDoctor (Wikipedia articles on [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plague_doctor the profession]] and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plague_doctor_costume the costume]]), who were employed during the Black Plague. The plague doctor's mask possessed glass eyepieces, and the nose was filled with herbs to ward away 'bad air', which was one of the believed causes of the plague at the time. The doctor then wore long thick outer garments to protect them from their surroundings, and carried a cane to interact with things without directly touching them (think that claw thingy the trashman carries). Although there was very little the doctors could actually do for their patients besides taking note of the infected and instigating quarantines, they were paid relatively handsomely for the risk involved in their jobs.
** ''Unfortunately'' it's now theorized that those long coats, with all their folds and fibers, might actually have made great hiding places for the disease carrying fleas which actually spread the plague.

* [[http://fallout3.files.wordpress.com/2008/02/live_in_russia.jpg Live In Russia]] Instead Of Playing Post Apocalyptic RPG's. Since WeblinksAreNotExamples, it's a guy carrying an AK-47 and wearing a big black hooded trench coat and a gas mask that has a filter cartridge roughly half the size of one's forearm.

* Many soldiers, particularly German ones, in UsefulNotes/WorldWarI. Most likely the TropeMaker.[[note]] They weren't called trench coats for nothing. They protected the skin against blister agents.[[/note]]

* Death's Head, a supervillain with the power to cause spontaneous illness and infection, from the ''Roleplay/GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse'', wears a World War II-era gas mask, a fedora, and a trenchcoat of his costume.

** And for good reason: the coat protected skin against blister agents.

* Modern gasmasks are often the modular type, with a replaceable and interchangable filter cartridge that lets you switch out for purpose-built protection for certain hazardous substances.

** To be fair, it's the variation on the standard NBC/chemical protection suit, made of rubberized cloth, that every army of the Cold War era had. Properly put on and fitted (and in its original green hue), it tends to resemble a goofy raincoat / CPU assembly worker uniform much more than a badass coat of doom.



* [[http://au.news.yahoo.com/world/a/-/world/18893944/mysterious-figure-photographed-in-woodland/ The Loyon]], an unidentified person spotted wandering in a Swiss forest, regularly seen since a decade. He wears a gasmask and sometimes a long camoufled coat. Although the previous link can look like a hoax (it is actually quite exagerrated), the Loyon (gender unknown) really exists (look [[http://www.lematin.ch/faits-divers/Le-Loyon-ne-fait-rire-personne/story/25650014 here]] for an article - in French - from an actual Swiss newspaper).

* The mooks from ''Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire'' wear greatcoats as part of their uniform and gas masks during the underground expedition, which is rather prudent since the risk of poison gas pockets would be very real and the climax takes place in an erupting volcano, though none of the named characters wear one.

Note that despite the common misconception, though gas warfare had not yet been used in practice, it was at least theoretical and had been outlawed as early as 1907. Also note that gas masks first appeared in combat at the Second Battle of Ypres in 1915, while masks in one form or another date back to 1849.
