Customer Reviews

Advantage Series Camo Auto-darkening Welding Helmet is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Mask with Cool Style This welding mask is great. It is very easy to see through. Darkens when i start an arc immediately. it makes my welds neater than a regular mask cause i can see what i am doing right before i strike an arc. I like the style of the camo a lot. The helmet is comfortable on my head. It is lightweight and seems durable. 4 optical arc sensors 1/1/1/2 optical clarity rating 1/16,000 per second switching speed

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wouldn’t recommend After only a few uses the battery cap would not stay in place and kept popping out in the middle of welding. I am not a professional so it was very well taken care of and rarely used just for hobby. Most of the time it was stored away. It was good while it lasted but in the end it didnt hold up not even to minor use and your helmet is the most important safety tool to protect your vision. I will be looking at other brands next time even if they are at a higher cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight On and Comfortable This is my first welding helmet so I have nothing to compare it to. My uncle is teaching me to weld and he tried it out and wanted to trade me for his old helmet, but that isn't happening! I found it to be very comfortable with easy fit adjustments with sweatband. Lightweight weighing just over 16 ounces, is made of high impact resistant nylon. There is a nob for adjusting the shade to your eyes comfort level and 4 optical arc sensors. And it looks really cool! 1/1/1/2 optical clarity rating 1/16,000 per second switching speed

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm not a welder, but it works fantastic for using a cut off wheel and grinder. I purchased this to protect me better while using a cut off wheel and grinders. The hood feels pretty flimsy for the price of this, hence only a "good" rating, but I assume the price is due to the auto darkening lens that this welding helmet has. There is also manual adjustments for the darkness, as well as a control setting for grinding. The head band has a push in first then twist for adjustment. It does have a wide range of adjustment for fittings. It also has adjustment for the hood flip to be adjusted too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent helmet I have done a lot of odd and end welding and building over the years and have never owned an auto-darkening helmet. This helmet is great, the quality is good, The tightening piece to make it fit your head works very well and i had no problem keeping it tilted up. The auto-darkening works great, i can see my work until i am ready to weld. It has several adjustments and is easy to use. I would buy this helmet regardless. The camo is a nice touch to a great looking and working helmet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lighter than what I expected This is my first welding helmet and it's much lighter than what I expected. The camo design is awesome looking. It just looks really cool. There's 2 nobs on the left side of the helmet. One to tighten the guard on the back of the helmet and the other one to control the dimming feature. It's battery operated so you just have to make sure you have a spare battery.
