Lens System Seems Very Good - Headband and Hardware, Not So Much....
September 6, 2017
I've always been very happy with Miller quality but not this time around. The lens system in this helmet is very good with plenty of options and adjustments. Where the disappointment starts is the head band system. I have a fairly normal head but for the life of me, I can't get this helmet to fit well. To get it to stay on my head, it's tight to the point of a headache after 10 to 15 minutes. If I adjust it to be comfortable, it won't stay on my head but that's not the serious issue. The connection between the headband system and the helmet is pathetic. Miller used extremely cheep, plastic screws and knobs to connect the headband to the helmet and you have to find a VERY fine line between between keeping the helmet up and stripping the plastic screws. My older, very cheap, helmet had aluminum screws that were light but you could torque them down without fear of stripping. I'm expecting to strip the Miller screws very soon. Maybe, if we're lucky, Miller will address this.
ProsVery good lens system with lots of adjustment.
VERY sensitive if set that way. No flashing yet.
ConsHeadband system doesn't stay on my head.
Plastic hardware is pathetic. Expect it to strip/break very soon.
