Riding on an exposed vehicle in the Russian Winter, here a combination motorcycle, required protective clothing. This Kradfahrer wears a sentry’s fur-lined overcoat, heavy mittens, the fur-lined cap of the reversible winter suit, which is no doubt being worn beneath the overcoat, and a gasmask for face protection. The air filter canister has been removed from the gasmask 38. Special extra eyepiece lens were issued for cold weather to prevent fogging by creating an airspace between the two lens.
