Help choosing a PAPR welding helmet
 
I'm looking at the Speedglas with adflo or Miller PAPR 9400i. For the $$ I want to 100% certain in choosing the right helmet.

I was wondering if anybody here has used them and could offer a comparison.

:laugh: Well you're well into the professional leagues looking at those helmets. Might I suggest checking with one of the welding forums to get some experienced feedback.

I have the 3M one, the only thing about it is if you don't wear a beany I find my hair gets caught in the head gear. Other then that no problems with it. I take it you do welding for a living?

I do weld for a living and currently use a miller elite without a respirator. I like the papr helmets not only for the respirtory protection, they also surround your head with fabric shrouding which will prevent sparks and refelected arc flash from getting into the hood. How is it taking the helmet on and off, is it very awkward or cumbersome? I wish the welding stores around here carried these helmets to try on, apparently not too many people buy them. You just cant put a price on your health and I'm looking to protect myself for the long run in this welding career.
