    I have had a couple of others before a Speedglas. They took a beating but as i said i had a couple of them… the Speedglas 9100xx is still going strong and have now upgraded to the 9100xxi for the workshop. Definitely worth every cent!

    Recently purchased myself the speedglas 9100xxi and honestly cant put in a bad word about it. The simplicity of the control buttons allow you to change modes quickly and easily. I can happily weld for hours straight without all the neck pain and headaches that i would get from my old helmet. The harness being so flexible, well padded and with whole range of adjustments, allows you to never feel uncomfortable while welding. The viewing area is also exceptional, being so wide, it makes welding a hell of a lot easier in tight spaces.
    Overall the quality of the helmet and the reasonable pricetag means I wouldn't recommend anything else but the speedglas range.
