Simply the greatest hood I have ever owned.
January 8, 2013
I could not find the off/on switch? Why? There is none! This hood is solar powered, and needs no batteries. Simply the greates hood I have ever used. I restore hot rods, and build performance race cars for almost a decade now, and have probably lost days to fiddling with the on/off button on my hood, with heavy welding gloves, changing batteries, and certainly have had a couple neck cramps after long days under a hood. Not anymore, no on-off all the time, and the headgear and lightness of the hood has had me forgetting I was wearing it! I have used Jackson hoods for years, and this one kept impressing me. I have been weleding with it for over a week now both Mig and Tig, and the clarity is awesome. VERY easy to use and simple controls, makes it a great hobbyist to a daily job shop hood. It's simple, rugged, light comfortable, and the curved lens cover seems to shed sparks and slag more effectively, which should lead to longer lens cover life. I have been very impressed, and put my old Jackson Flame EQC on the wall for show. The hood is my daily use hood now, and I love it ! A great buy and a lifetime hood for the hobbyist, a rugged and simple time saving hood for the daily job shop welder or fabricator who needs to take the hood on and off all day long.
