I got an unused NATO NBC suit,minus the gloves and tape for £15 a few years back-proper charcoal lined,silk type material,velcro cuffs,and vacuum
It was for a film my bro was making in college,but it would also work in the real deal I guess.
Look around army surplus stores-you should be able to pick one up quite cheap somewhere.
Mine was like this,although I don't know if it was the mk3-probably not,but just as good in a pinch:
Thats quite expensive,but I did get mine 4 or 5 years ago,so maybe they are that price now.
They do spread charcoal all over whatever you are wearing underneath the suit though-so if the apocalypse does happen,don't go wearing you best
threads under the NBC suit...
Did ya see what I did there?
Fot the gloves,just buy some chemical resistant heavy duty rubber gloves from a good DIY/hardware store and turn them inside out,spray with a rubber
glue then dip them in charcoal powder.dry them off,them turn them back the right way to use.
For the tape-Any decent duck tape,and you could make a double layer with more charcaol powder inbetween the layers if you want full on charcoal
Happy apocalypse preperations Antar-and the way things are going I don't think you are going over the top to be prepared.
Like the old saying goes-its better to have it and not need it,than need it and not have it.
Do you also have a place you will be heading to if the worst happens?
A deep cave or old mine would be my go to place in the event of nuclear exchange-make sure to have somewere like that in mind,and maybe stash a load
of supplies there if you can(hide/bury them if poss).
Hopefully you or anyone of us will not need it though.
