Depends on what a cheater is I guess. Fill me in, I have one of the Longevity helmets.

Sorry Gadget, a cheater is a magnifier lens

If you watch my video on the helmet you can see the inside. If that doesn't help let me know and I will take a snapshot for you.

Thanks Gadget, I don’t think a photo would help. I have looked at the specs. on Simon's helmets and I haven’t seen anything that states they will. I found that some of millers helmets have provisions for it.
Thanks Bob.
PS on the Miller site I found this

I finely got a new helmet that would accommodate my magnifier. Thanks to all for the help. I picked a 90002v 3M/Speedglas.

Thanks for the good info.
I would like to get a Longevity helmet and need a 2.0 lens.

I just use my regular glasses. I have never tried a helmet with a cheater lens. Maybe I am missing out!

I use both and a pair of binoculars , then the front slag shield popped off so I only need one or the other, guess I need to replace it with a new one, I super glued my cheater in & it just recently popped off after several months. Only paid $5 for the auto darkening helmet at a garage sale about a year ago.

This is a rather old thread so I hope people are still reading and will respond .... Are the cheater lenses fresnel-based? Wondering if I can glue one in on the inside of my helmet.
