Thread: Just ordered a helmet.

  1. #1

    Just ordered a helmet.

    After using Gadgets helmet today I'm sold on the Longevity helmet. I just ordered one for my self. It will be great to see what I am doing for a change.

    See what you are doing, yes. Know what you are doing....not so much
    Just kidding, it was just too easy

    Auto darkening just helps so much. I didn't have one for years and I only use my passive helmet on occasion. And I thought I would never use it.

    Welding using brale is tough on the fingers.

    I wish they would come up with a gold lense for auto darkening. I would be completely sold on them. I have a Lincoln AD helmet I really like it but i miss the clarity of the Gold lens in my old faithful Jacksons.

    It just was delivered today. I have not had a chance to try it yet but it sure is a lot better made than my other one.

    Keep in mind that the auto darking helmets become flakey at loe temps. Keep your old helmet for those cold weather welding jobs.

    I just ordered the latest and greatest helmet Longevity sell. I'm looking forward to seeing stuff I've never seen before. There is no substitute for great vision.
