    How comfortable it is and that it has many adjustments to get the perfect fit, as well as the quality and how quickly the self-darkening takes effect.

    There is no need to shift helmet when starting and stopping welding process, as the screen is powered to automatically change to the dark setting to stop the harmful ultraviolet rays burning eyes.

    I chose this product as well as a full range of cigweld items as the quality the surpasses its competitors but at an affordable price.

    Spare parts are also readily available and cost effective which means more time on the tools and less time ass farting around.

    With all the many different opinions available with welding helmets. I choose the Essential helmet
    1 it wasn’t the cheapest or most expensive
    2 to me it looks neat / professional
    3 my grandfather said I could trust any cigweld products

    I love this particular welding helmet as it is plain, leaving no design to only get ruined and tainted by splatter. The helmet is also very responsive and is great that it comes with spare lenses for when the old ones get destroyed
