Sad part is I need 2, Babycakes ya know.:thumbup1gif:I wear safety glasses and a straw hat. If hearing protection is needed I put them things that fit in your ear in my ear. Yah I know... but if I had to wear any of them helmets with all that stuff attached it would end up in the chipper or in the trash. What little hair grows on my head even gets cut off. Baseball cap or a straw hat is about all I can tolerate. Seeing as how I use my head to bang into everything I should re-think my way of doing things. :banghead: #1, 2 or 3 could probably save my head, my ears and my eyes. Damn it Gizmo2, you had to bring this up. I'm re-tiring at the end of this month and money will be tight. Hey I know, you can buy 2 and send me one. :good2::laugh:
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?
I think they may have different hearing protection levels also.#1 has vents in top, #'s 1 & 2 appear to have plastic screen while #3 is wire screen. ~~ Lowell
Oh yeah I'm sure Babycakes would buy into that,,,,, exercise equipment.:lol:I have the Husky version as well. When it is hot, sweat really collects in the ear muffs, but I like the protection, but I wear chaps too. I feel like the extra sweat from all of the gear is just extra weight loss. Am I right guys?
It's all about Location! :thumbup1gif:I bought a Rockman brand quite a few years ago. I use it when I have a lot of wood to cut or I'm felling trees in the woods, otherwise, just earmuffs, safety glasses and baseball cap. It is similar to #1 with the vents. Mine still gets hot in the summer, and the vents must help some.
If you get a chance to try them on, usually the most comfortable one is the one to get. If it's not comfortable, you won't use it.
If your not going to fell trees with possible dropping branches (widow makers), you may not need the hard hat for just chipping, it'll be a lot cooler.
Just my 2 cents.
(Oh I forgot, some of us are already cool).
