Average jacket, good protection, poor durablity
February 8, 2015
I weld and grind 4 hours a day, 6 days a week and do professional sheet metal fabrication work. Purchase the jacket to protect from spatter. It worked great. I would not hold up to heavy stick just too light no insulation. The jacket for me has lasted nine months. For the cost, i would not purchase the jacket again. The sleeve design just does not allow adjust-ability. It has one snap that is it. After month six, the protective material on the fabric start to show shines of wear. At month nine, holes have develop on sleeves and the jacket is beginning to tear. I would recommend it for mild use but not professional use.
Proswell ventilated, light physical weight, nice fit, good protection against tig and mig spatter in non-overhead applications
Conspoor durability, sleeves snaps which stopped working from sweat, sleeves design just didn't prevent spatter from entering sleeves,
