This headgear came with my hood and I've had to replace it 3 times in about a year and a half of ownership. Miller was kind enough to replace it with in the first 6 months and I've purchased it again hoping there'd be an upgrade. If they used a different adhesive to secure the back pad better, then might be acceptable. I've only been welding for 7 years but I think I know how to adjust my gear to fit properly and no matter how I've adjusted or added another sweat band, it just isn't comfortable me.
ProsIt's a miller and they'll stand behind their product (at least the headgear for the first year).
ConsBlue gel pads come off plastic way to easy. I couldn't ever get it adjusted properly to have the same comfort I did with my Jackson. However, my Jackson was a lighter in weight hood.
