Yes. It has a knob-adjustment / ratchet sizer thingy on the back of the inner strap.

How do you assemble the straps inside the helmet?

The above answers are correct, but they forget to mention that you must first fold the tabs in half, so that they are inserted into the slots with the narrow side in first.

I used the Sthil version for decades and the Echo for a little more than a year. Debris on or in the screen has never been an issue. The breathability is great, and I've never felt like my vision was impaired. I think the biggest plus are the ear muffs. Surprising how much more fatigued you get without ear protection.

The Echo Safety Helmet System is made in Taiwan.

How do you put this together? I don't want to inadvertently break something.

1. Hold safety helmet with inside facing up and the front pointed away. Place the suspension in the helmet with seat band facing away and nape strap facing up; insert one suspension tab into its shell slot. With thumbs on top of tab, press firmly until the tab snaps fully into place. Repeat procedure for each tab. 2. Adjust to head size (fasten firmly to the wearer's head to ensure maximum protection) A. Slide Lock (standard suspension) Insert the numbered end of the nape strap through the guide tabs of the adjustment end engaging each set. Proper fit is achieved by aligning desired size with the raised marks on the center guide tabs. To disengage the locking teeth for larger head-size adjustment, squeeze the area marked "PRESS" while pulling the numbered end. Release at desired size. B. Mega Ratchet (ratchet knob suspension) Turn the ratchet knob counter-clockwise to adjust the open suspension. Place the helmet on head and tighten the ratchet knob by turning clockwise until the helmet is secure and comfortable. DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN Hope this helps!

Great if you can put it together
When I ordered this helmet I was already aware of some reviewers complaining about the difficulty of installing the suspension web to the helmet. I ordered it anyway since I thought it was the better of the two brands that HD was offering. The helmet arrived double box, a very nice touch, with six parts to put together. Included is one set of paper instructions and additional instructions printed on the plastic bag containing the helmet. Both are a waste of time as none really tell you how to put everything together. Why a company like Echo doesn't take the time to write up some easy to understand instruction for a safety device is beyond me. The shield attaches to the shield holder with three turning tabs. I than attached the hanger keys that go from side to side in the helmet. I followed by folding the four hanger keys of the suspension system so they fit into the key slot. You then attach headset through the slot on the side of the helmet and finally slid the face shield holder arm through the mounting slots on the headset. Once put together I found the adjustable headset did a great job of blocking out the roar of the chainsaw. The metal mesh face shield protect the entire face from flying debris, although wearing safety glasses is still advised. The head band adjust with a simple twist of the knob on the back for a comfortable snug fit. When not needed the headset rotates back out onto the helmet and the face shield can be lifted up out of the way. Beyond the lack of good instruction my only concern was with the metal mesh causing some glare when facing sunlight. I spent several hours wearing this helmet while cutting and trimming brush and trees and it remained comfortable the entire time, without shifting or falling off. For the non-professional who needs to occasionally deal with brush and trees this helmet is ideal. Professional will be buying very expensive helmet that meet the demands of their job.

Even though I rated this as a 2-star ("Fair") product, I don't recommend it to others. It's an "okay" item; for my tastes, I want something better and more comfortable to wear when I am running my chainsaw (or my gas-powered string trimmer). The inner strap that holds the webbing and ties into the helmet rides way too low, so there is a 1-1/2" to 2" gap between the strap and the bottom rim of the helmet. This makes the whole thing feel top heavy. It looks like the strap is sort of supposed to hinge down over time to lessen the gap, but this is just a guess since the instructions are woefully inadequate. The plastic is too rigid to see how it will work to hinge. I'd spend either much more or a lot less and get a real helmet/shield combo, or one of the cheap-o plastic ones you see adjunct-healthcare workers wear (you know, the ones that say "FACE SHIELD" on them) and just go with that.

Great helmet until the ear protector broke after a few days - do not buy

Besides spending 30 minutes of irritation trying to assemble the thing, the helmet is generally good when it worked. That was until the little piece of cheap plastic broke that keeps the left ear muff in place and pressed against your head. It cracked in two (see pic). No, I didn't sit on it or have anything fall on it. I put it down one day, put it on the next, and pulled the muff against my ear and it broke. Does Echo sell the little part? No. You have to buy the whole ear muff set for around $20. And even then there are no pictures available to see if the parts come with it. The entire helmet package cost $45! That is disgusting behavior that, frankly, Americans are tired of. Let me guess, ECHO buys from the same manufacturer that sells hundreds of thousands of these parts and slaps their name on it? No quality control. No caring about the consumer. No caring about the brand. PLASTIC parts used in a system that is constantly under stress and strain with metal? For $45?!? Garbage. They call it a "safety helmet". So, 1 star for everything. This should last years, not a few days of use.

I had a generic helmet that came with a chainsaw I bought. It had a peg system headband that broke. Thought I would buy a replacement band, but could not find one. I started to look at new helmets, and they all look the same. This one was nearly twice the price of others, but it listed replacement parts. So, I figured, in the long run, this would be cheaper ... This helmet is much better than my old one! First off, the band is adjustable via a simple knob (see pics). So, if it is real cold, and I am wearing a skull cap, I can quickly adjust it wider. As the day goes on, and I start to sweat, I take the skull cap off, and readjust it narrower (not adjusting my last one wider, is what likely broke it). Second, the ear protection has a much nicer cushion. Not so stiff and cheap feeling. Third, this has an additional strap inside, for additional protection. On the downside ... the instructions are not very helpful; they are on the bag it comes in. If you have put one of these together before, it is the same simple procedure (remember to bend the band clip 180 degrees and then insert [see pic]). For newbies, Echo should add a video on here, and save Customers having to search for one. I have never owned an Echo chainsaw, but if they are like this helmet (so much better than the generics), I might have to try one.

Terrible instructions on how to assemble. Don't the Chinese know anyone who can speak the English language and write clear and concise assembly instructions? Really, this is beyond the usual poor grammer. Had yo finally go on YouTube where thankfully someone posted guidance and also their frustration.

Great helmet, I really recommend it. It is comfortable and stays in please after adjusting the ear muffs. I lowered 1 star because the instructions are awful! I almost broke it trying to put it together. I found a video only for a helmet from another brand that helped me to assemble it.

Safety helmet system for chainsaws.
Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
Quite easy to assemble, and fits well with the easy forehead adjustment. It has already saved my face and noggin from chips and branches a few times. I will try not to test it out against a big falling tree, however.
