How to Find the Best Welding Helmet

Whether you’re a welding professional or a hobbyist, choosing the right welding helmet is one of the most important decisions you’ll make. Welding helmets must provide adequate protection to your face and eyes while remaining comfortable enough to wear throughout the welding process. So what sets welding helmets apart? Welding helmets are differentiated mainly by price, shade style, comfort and style.

How Much Should You Spend On A Welding Helmet?

Some welding helmets can cost as little as $45 while others can cost nearly $3,000. The amount you should spend depends on what features are important to you. Welding helmet prices depend on their construction, whether they are auto-darkening or passive shade and any other optional features. For example, some welding helmets feature powered air-purifying respirators (PAPR) that deliver filtered air for the operator to breathe. PAPR systems can be necessary when welding in environments with little or no ventilation.

Auto-darkening Vs Passive Shade Helmets

The primary difference between passive shade welding helmets and auto-darkening helmets is the lens. With a passive shade helmet, the colored glass doesn’t lighten or darken, while auto-darkening helmets have lenses that automatically darken when you start your torch and turn clear when you shut it off.

Traditional Passive Shade Helmets

Many professional welders favor a traditional helmet with a glass lens and fixed shade. These traditional passive lens helmets provide inexpensive protection. But every time you want to examine your welds you have to lift the helmet, then re-position and secure it when you flip it down. It's a quick and simple movement, but multiplied by hundreds of times over the course of a day and it can use up a lot of time and energy and put a strain on your neck.

Auto-Darkening Helmets

Auto-darkening helmets not only protect against harmful light emissions, but the helmet’s shade easily changes back and forth between light and dark states without having to lift or completely remove the helmet. They're comfortable and come in a wide range of colors and graphics, so you can bring a bit of personality to work with you. Panoramic auto-darkening helmets add another layer of comfort and efficiency with a 180° field of view.

How A Welding Helmet Should Fit

Your welding helmet should fit snugly and securely against your head. Your helmet should only move when your head moves, and should not rattle when you move. When trying on a helmet, be sure to wear any bandanas or welding caps you would normally have on when you’re actually welding. Make sure the helmet is light enough and comfortable enough to wear for long periods. Lighter, more comfortable helmets will usually cost more but can be well worth it when you weld for extended periods.

Welding Helmet Styles

The pattern and design of your welding helmet should your unique style and personality. Are you a patriot? You’ll love Miller’s Digital Infinity Stars & Stripes helmet. Or perhaps you’ll prefer the badass look of the Departed Digital Infinity helmet. More of a minimalist? Check out the Miller Classic Series VSi helmet.
