  • 4-1/2 x 5-1/4 Helmet Flip Up Advise

    Hello,

    I'd appresiate some feedback others have had with their 4-1/2 x 5-1/4 helmet (flip-up...not fixed) lense type.

    I'm looking at buying one, but having a hard time determining which one would be a decent helmet for the money.

    Right now I'm looking at buying a Jackson Moresafe (believe 493 series)...but I've heard that the Jackson's have poor head-gear (not sure if this is true or not). Also, I presume any 4-1/2 x 5-1/4 flip-up helmet will accept glass gold series lenses?

    Thanks.
    Jon

      No matter what brand you get, a few people will complain about one part on the hood. I have heard people complain about jackson, and the 3M speedglas. Those two are the best you can get. I have no complaints on my jackson hood.
