Not made out of Carbon Fiber.
July 22, 2014
I need a temporary shield for a job due to my expensive speedglas helmet needing repair so I bought this one thinking the carbon would help to insulate from the radiant heat of my welding as well as be light.
Come to find out it is just the regular plastic halo x helmet with carbon fiber weave painted onto it. If the description were to of explain this well enough to understand I never would have bought it. Furthermore it is marketed as being a light weight face shield, and it is but it is still just plastic so its fairly floppy and doesnt hold its shape when I pick it up. I need a shield for work tomorrow so I wont be returning it, but I sure wish that I could.
ProsIt seems to be light.
ConsMade in tiawan is imprinted into the plastic shield.
It is not made of carbon fiber as it would seem it was.
The plastic seems flimsy and wont hold its own shape.
The carbon weave paint cost an extra 20$
