    Head, Ear and Eye Protection

    Looking for some appropriate Head, Ear and Eye Protection.
    First picks and along these lines. I can pretty much eliminate #4.
    Comments/Suggestions?

    Not to be nit-picky here but... "appropriate" for what? From the looks of it I'd guess tree-cutting/logging maybe? I mean, all the examples are inappropriate for the opera.

    Saturday night....I was working on a "makeline" cold table for Dominoes Pizza. There was shouting involved...and pepperonis flying all around me. I'm thinking I may need one of these too.

    Same here. Do like the look of number 1 with the vent in the top. But got hearing protection would ultimately make the choice for me.

    Mine is Husqvarna branded, similar to #3. I use it for chainsawing, of course, also with the chipper/shredder & when using the trimmer for heavy work such as tall grass, weeds & brush. ~~ Lowell

    Help me out here, 1 thru 3 all look the same, i.e. integrated head covering, face shield and hearing protection. How do they differ from each other?

    #1 has vents in top, #'s 1 & 2 appear to have plastic screen while #3 is wire screen. ~~ Lowell

    I ordered the #3 and did not get pepperoni or egg roll. The suspension is very comfortable and the screen will protect the face while allowing good ventilation. (IF you are one of those "sawyers" that don't sharpen your chain more than twice a year, some sawdust powder and smoke can come through the screen mesh!)

    FWIW, I always wear a "do-rag" bandanna in summer to soak up sweat and this suspension leaves plenty of room for it. Six point suspension is the only way to go.
