    Does this helmet fit XXL heads? I wear 7 3/4 hat size, and lower end Miller and Lincoln helmets barely fit if my head is bare, and not at all if I have a cap on.
    1 Answer
    Optrel advises that they can not give a size head that the headgear will allow for the Optrel Vegaview 2.5 Welding Helmet 1006.600. They were able to provide measurements if it helps. Optrel Welding Helmet Headgear 5003.250 is 17.72 inches deep by 11.81 inches long.

    Great Helmet, Great Price
    I've had a few cheap helmets before I decided to drop some bigger money onto a high end welding helmet. Really happy I got this one. It's very comfortable and light compared to my previous helmets and the 2.5 is pretty amazing. Access to controls is quick and intuitive.

    Grind button terrible AND flimsy plastic battery holder "tabs"
    Purchased this because of lighter state 2.5, based on experience with previous Optrel hood weight and visibility. However, the batteries started 'dying' quickly, as soon as put into service. After weeks of replacing batteries and even complaining to store about "old inventory". Finally, I discovered one of the PLASTIC ears that holds battery into hood..... GONE!! So only ONE battery was making contact, causing poor darkening performance. Luckily for me (NOT REALLY) it wasn't defective, but likely damaged in packing/shipping or unpacking and set-up, so I am stuck with a $255 hood and accessories. AND Whoever DESIGNED a welding shield to be used with a hard hat and PLACES the FLASHING RED LIGHT at the TOP of lens, needs MORE TIME WELDING with a HARD HAT. Please fix the lousy, unreliable grind button and move to inside of shield where it wont get TAPPED ACCIDENTALLY to flash yourself.
    ProsSUPER LIGHTWEIGHT!!! Comfortable for extended wear times EXCEPTIONAL CLARITY!!!
    ConsFlimsy, cheap plastic battery holder Grind indicator light hard to see when using hard hat Grinder button becomes unreliable and finicky quickly, if used in dusty environment(like GRINDING) Grinder Button TOO easy to accidentally hit and engage grind mode if used against walls or in tight spaces

    Exceptional helmet
    Has a decent viewing area with an Extremely clear lens both in light and dark shade. Exceeded my expectations on how well I would be able to see. However, occasionally the helmet flashes me when I start an arc and takes too long to turn back to light state, even when my sensitivity is all the way down. Headgear is slightly flimsy but it is a light helmet so it does its job well. The adjustment knob on the side to raise and lower the helmet makes overhead welding so much more comfortable. Overall a good helmet but I can't give it a perfect rating because of it flashing me all the time. Note, I only get flashed when striking an arc. I'm tig welding stainless steel at around 160 amps and looking directly at the weld when i start.
    ProsLens clarity. Lightweight. Adjustable for overhead welding. Rounded front for getting into small places.
    ConsBlinds me when striking an arc. Headgear adjustment knobs either are too tight and the helmet won't flip down, or are too loose and it falls down constantly. I can't find a good sweet spot. Stays dark for way too long after weld is finished, even when delay and sensitivity are all the way down.
