I got this helmet based on the cost being so high, I thought it was the highest quality, which is not the case, the grind button gets stuck (on my 2nd helmet), the helmet material does not feel as durable as other helmets. The stickers on the interior are even coming off when you pull it out of the box new, says a lot about the company as a whole. Cyberweld had to eat some of the cost I believe in the replacement as I don't believe Optrel wanted to 100% stand behind their product. The helmet is great for showing off though, and it does feel cool to run around at night with your helmet on in the dark and be able to see everything. However, I find this helmet uncomfortable to grind in, as I personally like having a clear grind shield, and if you're like me, get a bigger viewing area in your helmet over viewing ability, but this helmet is nicer for light duty welding as you don't have to take it off for little grind moments. Not a lot of people like to admit they over paid for an item, but trust me, people who over sell this item as being the "best" probably can't afford to venture.
ProsClear viewing, may be the clearest, but worth the cost? I don?t believe so.
ConsDoes not seem as durable as other brands. Grind button is not as easy to push, and eventually will start to get stuck. Cost. Small viewing window.
