Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JimmyDIY A real "eye" opening helmet
I finally decided to get a new welding helmet to replace my current helmet that is over 10 years old. My old helmet did not have the auto-darkening feature so I was ready for an upgrade.I decided on the Lincoln Auto-Darkening Bloodshot Helmet found at Home Depot. I really didn't know I was getting such a great product at the time.First, the graphics are incredible. I am going from a plain black helmet to a helmet that looks like it has tattoos covering it. Second, the Auto-Darkening feature is fantastic. It turns on an off at light speed. Also, the solar powered feature is awesome. It looks like a solar powered strip off a calculator and no batteries are ever required. Another great feature is the Sensitivity and Time delay switches inside the helmet. This allows for three adjustments on the auto-darkening feature and a slow and fast speed on the auto-darkening feature.Some of the other features are the nice sweat band on the strap that goes across your forehead. The quick sizing knob on the back makes it easy for my son to resize the helmet and wear it. The side tension knobs allow you to set the correct amount of tension to raise and lower the helmet to weld. A quick flick of your head brings the helmet down for welding.To top it all off, Lincoln sends two sets of interior replacement lenses...Bonus! I have included images of the features of this helmet.I am thrilled about my now Lincoln Welding Helmet and would absolutely recommend this product to any welder, from hobby welder to pro

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CJ Great purchase
I honestly bought this hood just to have an auto dark to get me through my 6 months of school, but I see it lasting me much longer than that. I love this hood and get plenty of compliments on the design !

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bubba probably better than a Harbor Freight helmet
I bought a Harbor Freight welding hood for 70. bones six months ago, nice helmet, worked well until today, when it started having bright flashes while welding. Hurt my eyes after a few seconds. It was supposed to be one that never needs batteries and charges off the arc light/solar. I don't know whats up with it, all i know is HF tells me too bad, should have bought the 2 year warranty for another 25. I should have spent the money on a Lincoln, that doesn't need a warranty for only 6 months. Now im 70 bones down the drain and looking for another hood.
