    My first auto dark helmet was one of the lower end Northern Tool models, which worked well for me. I upgraded to a Jackson Baldor when they had a massive rebate in 2013. But I still keep a Jackson HSL 100 because it was my first and for redundancy in case batteries go down or there's extra onlookers.

    When choosing an auto dark, keep in mind that some use batteries, so part of the research may include "are the replacement batteries easy to find", and "are they easy to replace".

    The Longevity power view elite is a really nice hood for under $200 competes with all the top hoods. I also have a Jackson Baldor hood and is incredible but lacks features of this hood.
