Definitely a shirt saver!
I purchased 6 Black Stallion denim welding shirts and have been using them for about 6 months. Im a welder for a heavy equipment implement company and run very long, high heat beads and the heat has eaten thru all my shirts on my left side because I hold the gun with my right hand. Wearing this welding jacket solved that problem. Yes it is hot but if you can't take the heat then welding is not for you! In the winter time it's awesome because it helps keep you warm. I just wish I had this jacket 6 shirts ago!
ProsExcellent heat and slag resistant. Not as heavy as you might think.
ConsIt is a little warm but that comes with being a welder.
