The face shield is mesh rather than plastic, keeping it easy to get air through, while still blocking chips, and can be easily shifted up to get out of the way when not working. The ear muffs are a nice tight fit (and hold the whole system nicely in place snugly), and are easy to snap up and rotate out of place when not cutting. The inner straps on the helmet are a nice canvas, so more comfortable than other helmets I've worn using plastic liner straps.
Having everything combined makes it easy to remember to use it all, and makes it quick to toss on. Protecting your eyes, ears, and head are important, and this helmet is a great way to do it.
ANSI S3.19 - 1974 (for the ear muffs)
ANSI Z89.1 - 2009 (for the helmet)
1. Fits well
2. Ear protections does not rub at all
3. Face shield is Metal coated in Nylon. (not enough to stop anything huge but will stop most).
4. Hearing protection cancels out noise very well.
1. Face shield does not completely cover your chin. (so that you can look down and cut much easier 50/50 complaint)
2. Head band could use more for sweat but really isn't an issue.
3. Large safety glasses do not go behind your ears well. Use the smaller ones or get some good goggles.
4. Rain guard is a joke I threw it back in the box.
Truthfully all of the cons really are not that big of deal to me. I picked this up at Shoppers Supply for $45.88. You have to put it together but it isn't rocket science it is a protective helmet. Overall it was a great buy and it really does help with debris flying at you. It won't stop everything but it will stop the bigger stuff. Also always wear Safety goggles with this helmet. If you want your eyes protected wear eye protection. You want your face, head, and ears protected wear this thing.
And if you like to hear, wear hearing protection with a chainsaw. (Not so bad an idea with a table saw either, but not quite as important.)
I cannot speak from experience for the eye protection of this helmet, but it meets industry standards and should be good. Also, it covers the whole face. If you don't want to look like an extra from Gladiator or Braveheart this can be a good idea. At a minimum, I suggest goggles that have a strap. Regular safety glasses might get ripped off by a whipping chain, which is what you need protection from.
The sound protection of this helmet is the best I have ever used, substantially better than the hearing protectors from my local hardware store. I can hear people speaking to me with the protectors on, so long as they speak loudly. The muffs can be clicked up easily if you want to talk without taking the helmet off.
Also, if necessary you can wear glasses with this helmet with no problem.
I have a very large head and it fits me well. The inside straps are very adjustable, and I think it would fit almost anybody.
A well constructed safety helmet.
I decided to give the Husqvarna helmet system a try. I have had it out in the woods a few times now. So, far, it has worked with no problems or interference. The fit to my head is more comfortable than my old helmet. The Husqvarna has a more substantial back strap behind the back of the head. Ear protection is good, and the face shield is fine. I have not had anything fall on top of the helmet (yet), but it should do OK.
I was surprised to discover that there was no chin strap on this unit. I do not see where I could install one either. To me, that is a major disappointment. I need the helmet to stay on my head when I fall down. I have seen other woodsmen fall over as well, so this is not just an issue with me. It is part and parcel of working in an active timbering area. By its very nature, it is a dangerous area. Having the helmet pop off one's head before one has stopped falling and moving creates the possibility of a bad outcome. I watched a video of a woodsman fall and roll down 20' on steep hillside. On his second roll, his head hit a tree stump, but his helmet stayed on and it took the impact. He got up indicating that he was not hurt. Good thing.
I am going to try to retrofit this helmet with a chin strap for safety.Read more ›
