I bought this for my wife who needs a helmet occasionally, when I also need one. The ear protectors are very good compared to my helmet in terms of sound reduction, but they don't snap up away from your ears when you want to hear something besides the chainsaw. You have to take off the helmet when you need to hear. It is cheaply made. The plastic is inferior. The visor is not easy to put on and take off, and it seems to have a lot of play when you lift it up. The assembly directions are very sketchy. They omit details on how to put on the ear protectors and visor. But it serves the purpose.
