    Two button cells weigh next to nothing. I'm looking hard at the HTP line for a second hood.
    4T or not 4T, that is the question.

    We have a new line of helmets coming! 4 sensors with nice viewing areas. I hope to have more details in the future.

    I can only recommend ones that I've used.

    So far I've used:
    Same blue Harbor freight one = sucks
    $99 kobalt from lowes = crap
    Jackson eqc = Good helmet, but heavy. Not a fan of helmets that take AAA batteries
    Miller digital = Great,love it; but pricey $200
    Mac tools (made by jackson, I think?) = great helmet. but super over priced, over $400
    HTP striker, $99 free shipping = Lightweight, comfortable and inexpensive.

    Those are the only ones I've used that i can comment on. I have read good and bad things about the lincoln viking helmet, but no personal experience.
    That is exactly what I was afraid of. Because I haven't used any other helmets, it's really hard to tell what I'm missing. I'll have to take a look at the HTP helmets. Thanks for the tip.
    Is it OK to want to break something just so that you can weld it back together?
