    Excellent fit, outstanding protection, good value
    I use this helmet with several Stihl tools (blower, pole saw, several chainsaws, weed eaters and when I'm using my chippers or log splitters). This helmet stays with you; look up, down or sideways and it doesn't fall over your nose. The screen works fabulously well and deflects wood chips, rocks and other debris with great success. While walking under huge Douglas fir trees I had a "widow maker" come down and hit me squarely on the helmet. The helmet deflected a heavy dead branch (about 4" ... read more diameter and maybe 18-20' long). Although the ear muff broke off, the helmet was fabulous; the branch was deflected to the side, I was completely uninjured, and if I can get a new muff, this is still a perfectly serviceable product. Yep, I keep these helmets available for people that work with me and they are required to wear them.

    Essential Head & Face Protection
    This helmet system has worked as advertised for me... it's comfortable to wear, easy to use, and most importantly, it offers complete head and face protection (when worn with safety glasses). I can't imagine anyone operating a chainsaw (or brush cutter) and not wearing a full protective helmet system... it's just inexpensive insurance against head and face injuries.

    Great piece of PPE to have!
    If you're going to be operating a chainsaw, this is a must have! With all the possibilities of serious injury, this is a mandatory safety item for me when I'm buzzing away at trees. This helmet system fits perfectly and protects extremely well. Very comfortable to wear even during long work sessions. The metal mesh face shield screen is highly transparent and does not get in the way while using a chainsaw properly. Good job Stihl, keep up the great work!

    Good senses.
    I wish I'd have purchased a unit like this thirty years ago. It was assembled easily with just a few snaps. This helmet protects ones head from debris falling from above, eyes and hearing. The full face mesh keeps wood chips, not just out of your eyes but from hitting any part of the face. The mesh doesn't obstruct vision. One fault is access to be able to wipe sweat or nose without flipping it up. The hearing protection has many different positions for comfortable protection. Once adjusted I ... read more had no issues with the helmet retaining band, the lid stayed put while bending, cutting, splitting(w/maul), and loading wood. My experience is limited to winter temperatures ranging from the teens up into the low forties. Before purchasing I inquired about the availability of replacement components. The dealer told me that all components should be available for several years into the future. He also explained the recommended life of these helmets is that of five years due to UV deterioration of the material. I will be sporting this unit anytime that I am cutting under the canopy.

    Perfect for home users
    I got this in a package deal with chaps and safety glasses making it even a better value. It is great to have one piece of safety equipment to cover your head, eyes, and ears. You wont even notice the screen in the face shield, it is fine enough that you see clearly right through it. The ear muffs have almost infinite adjustability and swing back out of the way when you don't need them. The only thing it does not have it a ratchet adjustment system but that is why it is so affordable. After ... read more using this one time, you will never want to be out in the woods with your saw without it.

    A regular part of my safety gear.
    Although I bought this for when using my chainsaw, I have found that I prefer to wear it anytime I'm outside doing yard work with power equipment. It has protected my head many times when weed whacking or cutting grass under tree limbs. It keeps the branches out of my face, protects my head from Sun and ticks, and it's just been an overall great value.
