This is my 3rd auto dark helmet. 1st was an expensive Jackson that was good till I drowned it. The 2nd was a Hobart $100 model that still works but a little foggy. This Lincoln Viking so far has out performed the other 2 by far. It is so clear and doesn't have that green tint when dark. Reading the reviews prior to purchasing, I saw a couple that were very critical of the headgear in this helmet. I know headgear is a personal fit and resulting opinion. My opinion is very favorable regarding this headgear. I have used this helmet for several long days so far and find it to be the ticket. I'm 72 years old, been welding for 56 years, retired but couldn't sit still so opened a shop. I have owned many helmets and I highly recommend this one.
