Perry Bryant replied to jake (6672)'s discussion getting over claustrophobia in the scba mask in the group The Probie Corner
"Wear it wear it wear. i personally do not have problems with this issue. One thing we do for drill sometimes is mask up in a dark with nomex on backwards. Confidence in your gear and your skills will eliminate this. When we do the above mentioned…"
