“I’m a second generation welder and without a doubt the Crystal 2.0 offers the best optics on the market. This hood is a gamechanger, the optics are so crystal clear, grind mode is handy. Booth to booth, one hood. Lightest, most functional hood I’ve ever used. Everyone who tries it on, switches to optrel helmets. 7 of the 10 students in my Veteran Pipe Welding apprenticeship at Camp Lejeune, NC went to optrel. I’m welding 7 hours a day and this hood…the crystal clarity, auto darkening, all great for working and teaching. Can’t say enough good things about it.”
Billy Platt, CWI, CWE

This is the lightest welding helmet I’ve ever worn! Excellent clarity and color vision, when in autopilot mode I never have to worry about which welding process I’m using, the helmet selects the proper shade instantly! Fantastic technology, Thank you, Optrel!

Just received my vegaview 2.5. Nicest helmet I’ve ever used. Definitely worth the money

Greg Ryder

100% by far the best company I’ve purchased a helmet from, I’ve been using my Panoramaxx for a little over a year and had a slight issue with it. Thanks to Optrel, my warranty is taking care of the issue and it has been such an easy and amazing experience. Very fast and professional responses, and extremely helpful group! Thanks again for creating such a great hood! Can’t wait to see what the future holds!

I received my Crystal 2.0 last week. The clarity of vision through this hood is absolutely amazing.
