Hobart 770756 Impact Variable Auto-Dark Helmet Quick Review

Starting off our list is the Hobart 770756 Impact Variable Welding Helmet. My favorite thing about this helmet has to be the perfect viewing area of 7.05 square inches. Which provides great viewing comfort, a problem I've come across way too often with lower quality helmets.

Not only does this auto-darkening helmet have a great viewing area, but you'll also be pleased to know it has about a 1/25,000 second reaction time. A great reaction time that can help ensure your eyes are protected against arcs which can interrupt or mess up your work.

Being made with a durable polymide shell, the Hobart Impact Variable is also amazingly weightless. With a lighter weight you won't have to worry about any discomfort or soreness when you're spending long hours working.

The Impact Variable also comes in various styles (like a camo welding helmet) for anyone looking for a welding Helmet that stands out. You can find all the different styles here.

Next up on our list is the Hobart 770753 Pro Variable Welding Helmet. Although this helmet might be a little pricer than the Impact Variable, it's Pro performance features make it well worth every penny.

With a viewing area of 9.02 square inches, it's definitely a major upgrade from Hobart's other models. And with a reaction time of 1/30,000 seconds, you can see why this helmet is one of the more popular choices of more experienced welders.

Just like the other models, this helmet is made with the lightweight and durable polyamide shell, so you can get your money's worth without worrying about losing quality.

Hobart 770746 Helmet with Black Auto-Dark Variable Shade

For anyone on a budget but still wanting a great welding helmet, the Hobart 770746 Auto-Dark Variable Helmet would make a great purchase.

Unlike the other Hobart models, the Hobart 770746 only has a 1/12,000 second reaction time. It also has a smaller viewing area of just 6.9 square inches. The great thing about this helmet though is that it's still made with the same durable polyamide shell as the other Hobart models. So you can still expect longevity along with great lightweight comfort.

Now I do recommend a different welding helmet if you have the money, but if not it still makes a great budget welding helmet and can get the job done.
