Protect your head with a safety helmet
A safety helmet or hard hat is the main type of head protection worn by chain saw users. The purpose of a safety helmet is to protect your head from the impact of falling branches. Wearing a helmet can help protect the brain against injuries such as concussions.
The original safety helmets were made out of aluminum. While aluminum hard hats are still worn today, the majority of safety helmets are now made out of plastic. Regardless of the material you choose for your safety helmet, it’s important that it is structurally sound. If it has holes, dents, bad suspension or is discolored (in the case of plastic safety helmets), it’s time to get a hat or fix the suspension.
You can test the structure of your plastic safety helmet by compressing it with your hands. If the helmet returns to the original shape after you release it, it is structurally sound. If not, your helmet should be replaced immediately.
Many of today’s helmets are built with additional safety features. Some safety helmets,include a face shield. Face shields can help prevent cuts and scrapes from branches, flying wood chips, and saw dust. Other helmets can also include built-in ear muffs for hearing protection. Our helmet features both.
Wider, durable stainless steel mesh visor is wider than the competition. Includes strong flip up and down function and is lightweight.

1) After un-boxing, take the helmet and the cross-strap with the U shaped attahcments. Withe the helmet up-side down, take one of the U shaped attachments and make sure the feet are facing outward, then slide the attachment down into the two slots until it clicks in. Do the same on the other side making sure the strap is not twisted.
2) Install the headband. Keep the helmet up-side down on your table. Take the adjusting knob and rotate it away from headband webbing. Note that the adjusting knob should be in the back of the helmet and the knob should now be facing up with the helmet up-side down . The important thing to note when assembling it is that the four translucent white attachment points on the headband that hold the webbing need to be folded in half before you can insert them in the helmet slots. The folded edge is inserted into the helmet slots first, then pushed down until you hear it click. It's difficult to describe, but actually pretty easy, and the pictures should help.
3) Install the hearing protectors. Lay the helmet on you table right-side up (vents on top). Take the ear muffs and rotate the black insertion tab around so that it points away from the ear muff. This just makes it easier to install. Insert the ear muff tabs into the two slots on either side of the helmet keeping the soft padded inside of the ear muff facing (touching) the helmet. Depress the locking tabs on either side of the insert tab and push the ear muff down until you click the unit in place. Please see the pictures. Now you have installed the hearing protection.
4) Install the visor bracket. Keep the helmet right-side up on the table. Flip the visor bracket attachment tabs over so that they point away from the visor bracket (see pictures) and slide the two tabs into slots in the ear muff brackets. As you push the visor bracket back into the slots the locking tab will need to be depressed twice so you can properly seat it. Use the little square openings (windows) and depress the visor tab to allow it to move back two clicks. If it's installed correctly the edge of the visor bracket will sit on the front edge of the helmet visor.
5) Attach the screen. The visor bracket has 5 locking screen attachments. You will first need to twist them so each is flat (horizontal), then beginning in the center lay the screen over visor bracket and twist the center locking attachment so that it is up and down (vertical). Do that for each of the four others and you are done. See the pictures.
6) If all goes well your helmet should be complete. Good luck.
Well, anyway, after researching, found this Oregon one.
I'm a bit "upset" at all the negative reviews. Yes, because they really aren't about the quality of this, it is unfortunately, it seems, the inability of people to follow instructions? So, these reviews caused a delay in my figuring out this was a GREAT helmet. Perhaps some really just had a lot of trouble getting this thing together, but honestly I can NOT understand why it was so difficult.
I got it together in just over 3 minutes! I did look at the fairly clear diagrams quickly a couple of times, but mostly just looked at the photos.
Bottom line, this is a GREAT helmet that is IDENTICAL to Stihl's, only better in quality and at LESS than HALF the cost!
Thank you Oregon!!!!
The helmet I received came with a wire mesh face screen. It has 3 positions: fully raised, fully lowered, and partially lowered. I believe the partially lowered position is there to allow you to move the bottom of the screen up and away from your chest when you are looking down while sawing, as when cutting a falling notch. The screen on this helmet is large compared to other helmets I have used and the mesh is finer. I like both features.
The ear muffs are suspended on 2 wires and give a tight fit that helps to hold the helmet in place. I bent the wires outward a little bit to reduce the pressure that the ear muffs apply to the ear and head. The assembly instructions seem to indicate that this is intended by the design, but as another reviewer has noted, the "pictures only" instructions are not very clear.
I found the helmet to be easy to assemble. Everything was there and it all fit together fine. The ear muffs and face screen assembly are very straightforward, but the instructions for the suspension installation are not clear. I have provided a few pictures showing the helmet assembled, with detail on the suspension assembly. If you have trouble interpreting the mystery glyphs on the instructions, the pictures might make more sense. The helmet suspension has 2 pieces. The first is a band that runs across the helmet with anchors near each ear. Assemble that so that the band is located closer to the top of the helmet rather than towards the bottom of the helmet. The second suspension piece has 4 anchor points, each connected to the suspension band by a strip. You have to fold that strip in half before attaching the suspension anchors to the helmet. The dial adjuster should be located toward the rear and center of the helmet. The fabric band on the suspension goes toward the front center.
I did not use any tools assembling the helmet but it took some force to get everything to go together.
