Miller Digital Elite Welding Helmet 5 Great welding helmet at a great price. Shipping was very prompt, ordered helmet on a Saturday afternoon and recieved helmet on the following Wednesday.
good 5 fix
Like it 4 Works well. It is a little heavy.
Great Mask 5 I've been professionally trained to weld but this is the first mask I've ever owned. No problems at all so far. Visability, and durablitiy is outstanding compared to what I'm used to. Good bang for your buck-
digital elite 5 Except for the flimsy headgear it's comfortable and lit weight and love all the features
Ridiculously great helmet 5 My only complaint is that this helmet spoiled me and now using other helmets sucks. As a matter of fact the guys I work with have been playing with it and they all said the same thing. This thing had to have been designed and engineered by a welder and they thought of everything. As for they had the best price, checkout was quick and smooth, and shipping was fast. Oh one more issue, the helmet doesn't make cold beer, but besides that it's perfect.
Prefect 5 Great helmet at a great price

Great Hood! 5 Great Hood!
Works great 5 Arrived 3days after purchase. exterior box was in perfect condition though interior box had a small dent, but nothing was damaged. Read the easy operating instructions and used it the next day with my miller 211, and it worked flawlessly.
ADF helmet 5 Good price, very light and viewable shade 3 at rest. Big viewing area. Probably the best helmet for the price and then some.
Great 4 Great
Christmas gift for my son. 5 Christmas gift for my son. He got it early for his new job and was very pleased.
Miller welding helmet 5 Great helmet.
poor headgear 3 They could have used better headgear for a high end helmet. It's loose and won't stay adjusted. Other than that the helmet works good.
Great hood 5 Great hood
Miller Elite 5 Great fit, It's like looking thru glass before arc and weld puddle is very visible. great helmet.
New Helmet 5 My first helmet was less than $100 and you get what you pay for. It lasted for 9 months and then died. Called the manufacturer and they said, sorry, 3 month warrantee. This time I bought the Miller helmet. Much better quality lens, much larger viewing area, comfortable, easy to know if the helmet is working and you can add a magnifier lens. I am very happy with this purchase. It also has a 3 year warrantee!
a gift for my son 5 a gift for my son and he loves it
Good 5 Good
New hood 5 Great welding hood and great miller quality. And at a good price.
Elite Helmet 5 Same quality Miller product you'd get anywhere else but Welding Supplies had the best price AND a rebate to boot!!! Shipping was fast as well.
works as expected 5 works as expected
Best welding helmet I've ever owned 5 The good: The lens in amazingly clear Love the x mode for tig Lighter than my last helmet Grind mode has changed my life..... I rarely take the helmet off... The bad: Mode button is on the inside, it would have been nice to go from grind to weld without removing a glove to press the little button. Head gear needs alot of pressure on the nuts to keep the helmet up, worried about stripping them, as their plastic.
Great hoods 5 My last Miller Elite lasted 12 years before an unfortunate meeting with gravity and a pointed object. I'd say the newer version is better, more clarity through the lens and the fitment on my head is more comfortable. That combine with the rebate they were running made it a no brainer. Hopefully this one lasts just as long.
Miller Elite Hood 5 An excellent product at an exceptional price with super fast shipping! What more could you ask?
Great fit, even with a 5 Great fit, even with a respirator underneath. Very lightweight, but quality made product. The Miller replaceable lenses fit perfectly.
Digital elite 4 Works good
Nice deal 5 I havent had a chance to use the helmet yet, but.... The features and adjustability for fit are great. With the $50 rebate its hard to beat the price for a top of the line helmet.
Good sheild 4 Good sheild, great clarity and like the x feature. Good grind and cut mode with nice controls. Head gear isn't my favorite. I also have the Viking 3350 and that head gear is more comfortable for all day. But everything else is just as good on both just wanted the x feature since I sometimes get flashed with the Viking getting into nooks or low amperage welding
Great 5 Great product, and delivery
Great Helmet 5 Good visibility. Great improvement over.the old Kobalt helmet I've.worn for years.
Perfect helmet 5 This is an all around perfect welding helmet. I have had the chance to put it to comparison test with esab and a few others. It came out on top. I went for the all black instead of the design only because I put stickers on mine. Honestly there is no comparison to any other helmet on the market.
Miller equals quality 5 Great hood that weighs in at only 1.2 pounds. Not one complaint on my end!

I LOVE THIS HOOD!!!!!! 5 You sold me a great product at a reasonable price and it arrived in great condition in just a few days.and my hood is better than I thought it would be
Great helmet 5 I'm a novice welder, but have both a stick and MIG welder. I bought this helmet to keep with th MIG for indoor use. This is by far the best helmet I personally have ever used. It's got a larger view area, the darkening is super responsive and the system to keep it on my head is super comfortable. I bought the pain black one to put all sorts of stickers on it and personalize it. I'd highly recommend. it.

Only reason I held back 4 Only reason I held back and only gave 4 stars is the head gear is a little cheap feeling. But every other aspect about this helmet is perfect. I wish I had bought this first instead of throwing away money on cheaper helmets. The visibility made my welds improve immediately.
Awesome welding hood. Crystal clear 5 Awesome welding hood. Crystal clear and plenty of window to view!!
Great helmet, super visibility, lots 5 Great helmet, super visibility, lots of adjustment on head gear and settings! Best purchase I have made in a long time.
Impressive helmet, great functionality. Very 5 Impressive helmet, great functionality. Very comfortable
So far this helmet has 4 So far this helmet has made me a better welder because I really can see more of my work. I'd give it 5 stars but it is too soon. Previous helmets failed after a year or so. My last helmet was flashing and had poor visibility. I hope that the Miller keeps working as well as it has so far. The adjustments for the fit take some fiddling with and there was a complaint about overall construction. I don't see that. The helmet is comfortable for me and provides me with the protection I want.
HOOSIERWELDER 5 I've been welding for over 3 decades . I've owned and worn out every hood known to the proffesion. Ya can't find a more durable , versatile or efficient welding hood for your money .
After several iterations of adjusting 4 After several iterations of adjusting the head piece it has worked well. The back of neck part tends to ride up and the shell hinge points could be better adjustable for tightness. Overall it is comfortable during periods of long wear. The auto darkening shield works great. This helmet replaced another brand helmet that the auto shield unit failed and could not be replaced.
