Great helmet and excellent customer service from Welding Store!

The helmet is comfortable, and the clarity is excellent. Had a great experience working with the Welding Store as well. I received an old e-mail by mistake with a long-expired sale price on the helmet, and they honored the price anyway and made the ordering process easy for me. Helmet arrived right on time.

Great value

The clarity of the new style automatic lens is awesome. I didn’t realize how much of a difference there was from my older auto dampening helmet from roughly 15 years ago.

There is a difference.

There is a difference. Compared to my old hood this is like driving a luxury car compared to a Kia. Also the Welding store was fast to ship. Even though it was out of stock I received the hood in less than a week.

Great helmet

Really like this helmet. I thought my old helmet was pretty good but this is way better. Arrived quickly also. Excellent helmet for the price.
