Awkward piece. Does its job in keeping the glasses from fogging, sweat off your face, but it comes at a cost and not just money. It can be inconvenient during work setting up BEFORE welding. Where before you set your hood down and set up, now you're taking everything off and having to put it back on.
ProsDoes its job, keeps you cool, battery lasts me 9 hours never ran out yet, no fog on the inner lens or safety glasses.
ConsAwkward in tight spots, can snag easily, air flow is soley on forehead not throughout the hood, the sock & hose on the back to hold the air in makes it hard to tighten your hood from the back. Headgear is slightly heavier leading to over tightening to keep hood from falling down on your face. Air flow seems like it could've been more powerful with holes throughout the headgear rather than just directly to the forehead. For the price I had higher expectations for it. Only reason I would recommend this item is that it is functional among all the awkwardness.
