It is a 0-star item produced by SquidForce and comes with the primary ability Tenacity.

The Air Gills DX is a respirator mask made for arid environments. It possesses a pair of filters with dirty white and dark gray cartridges, separated by a yellow safety label. The front consists of a black valve, the facemask itself and two black toggles for adjusting the strap, adorned with a SquidForce logo pattern, the ends of which connect to a rubber headband. The bottom of the mask has yet another strap going around the wearer's nape. The bottom part of the filters and the facemask change color to match the wearer's ink.

When displayed in a Locker in Splatoon 3, this gear is placed on a black mannequin head.

The Air Gills DX comes with Tenacity as the primary ability when purchased from a shop or ordered from Murch, which, being exclusive to the main slot of Headgear, prevents the wearer from also having Comeback, Last-Ditch Effort, or Opening Gambit. When purchased from SplatNet 3, it comes with any other primary ability normally available to Headgear. As a 0-star item, the Air Gills DX comes with one additional slot for secondary abilities. The star level may be increased with Super Sea Snails for 1 (first), 1 (second), 5 (third), 10 (fourth), or 20 (fifth) Super Sea Snails per star, or by purchasing additional copies of it from Naut Couture for 10,000 (first), 30,000 (second), 50,000 (third), 100,000 (fourth), or 200,000 (fifth) Cash per star. Increasing the star level to 1 or 2 stars will add a secondary ability slot per level, up to a maximum of three slots. Increasing the star level beyond 2 stars will increase the gear experience gained by a cumulative 3.333…% up to 10% additional experience at 5-star level. Since it is made by the SquidForce gear brand, it has a higher chance of rolling Ink Resistance Up and a lower chance of rolling Ink Saver (Main) to fill its secondary ability slots.
