Klein’s non-vented full brim class E hard hat is a winner/
Klein’s non-vented full brim class E hard hat is a winner. This lightweight hat is very comfortable, with washable and adjustable sweatband and top pad. In fact, if you wet and shake dry then re-install, they provide hours of cooling comfort. No chin strap is required as the rotating ratcheted adjustment knob provides an easy method to secure the hat, even wearing gloves. Its range of movement allows for pony tails and bandanna tie knots - nice they thought of this reality for many guys. The KARBN pattern is sharp looking. The helmet has connections for hearing protection, face shields, and more. The included LED front or rear mounted light is great, giving 3 lighting options (front, side, or full angle). The light angles up and down as well. It is rechargeable, came charged, and includes a USB charging cable. Having had other hard hats, this one seems to give a bit more room above your head for increased airflow. (There is a vented version.) The specs are listed on the webpage. This is another great Klein product, that exceeds your expectations, provides excellent safety, and just looks good.
This helmet worked well for my needs. One occassion that I used it for was while I was reinforcing the the structure for a basement stairwell. I had to work underneath the stairs in dark spots and the headlamp came in handy. There were a few times when I bumped into the stringer, and even though I did not bump into them very hard, I was glad that I had my helmet. One thing that I would like improved, is the same issue with most helmets. I would like something to absorb the sound, when the helmet is struck, as the sound of the hard plastic being struck can ring your ears.
The headlamp worked well, I have another klein headlamp and this one worked better as this one operates at a different frequency so if you needed to take pictures you will not see horizontal bars in your image.
Another issue is the lamp does not have a dedicated power switch. The power button and mode selector are the same button. When I want to shut off the light, I just want to be able to do it with one press of the button.
Comfortable bucket got to get the white vented one for summer

Love the color and the style.
Just received this week, purchased for personal use. Love the hard hat. The light has a floppy hinge. Was kinda suprised by that. It doesn't lock into the default, upright position. Just is loose because of the hinge. I will have to add a little piece of velcro to stabilize it.
