I got what I paid for. High dollar, high quality. It's very light weight, the headgear is very comfortable and the clear state just has to be experienced to believe. I can read a newspaper through it. I have not used the Esab Sentinel but have used the speedglas 9100xxi. Don't think anyone would be disappointed with any of those but for my money I would get this again. Best optical clarity ever. Nice blue but you can still see everything. No fogging. Have not used with hard hat halo so can't speak to that. Definitely not an outside hood though. The features that make this exceptional are negated in direct sunlight. In a shop or in a hole or a tight space, it is unmatched.
ProsIt is everything they say it is!!!
ConsIf you work outdoors a lot more in sunlight, grab a Jackson or a pipe liner. It would be the same for speedglas or any other though. Not really a con as it wasn't designed for that. For what it was deigned, you'll not find anything superior
