    Does anyone know of a good passive helmet that you can buy in the UK?
    At the moment I'm using an esab eco arc but the headgear is flimsy.
    Looking at the Jackson Shadow head shields the headgear is far better, but you can't get them in UK. I can't even find a passive helmet in this country with headgear that is comparable.
    Could someone point me in the right direction.
    Cheers

    Protoshell, either full sized mask or they also do a smaller sized one i think is called a "baby"(?) with the flip up lense, turning it into a grinding mask.
    Its what ive used for a long long time now, mostly Tig and stick welding and wont be replacing it any time soon for that.

    I've got a full size prota-shell which I've put a gold lens and bolle headgear in. Think i got the headgear of amazon. The standard headgear i found fine but it would often need readjusting throughout the day. Its as comfy as my Esab Sentinel and far lighter so end up using it just as much.
