World record ADF with shade level 2.5 / 8–12: The Optrel Vegaview 2.5 lets the welders’ most desired wish come true: bright view. With its unrivaled brightest ADF view with shade level 2.5, Vegaview 2.5 improves the visibility of welders’ environment by 400%! Compared with traditional autodarkening welding helmets, Vegaview 2.5 sets the world record in the light state! Thanks to a special UV/IR filter, the Vegaview 2.5 offers a real color experience never seen before and finally brings color into the world of welding. Weighting only 482 g (17 oz), the Optrel Vegaview 2.5 is one of the lightest auto­darkening welding helmets available. Its ergonomic design minimizes strain on the head and neck, ensuring comfort throughout the work day. The Optrel Vegaview 2.5 is perfectly combined with the Optrel e3000 PAPR respiratory system. With its integrated high-performance particle filter (TH3), welders are adequately protected against smoke, aerosols, and dust.

is the PAPR system included with this product or is this the helmet component only?

This is just the PAPR hood. To complete the system you would also need to order the blower kit. Here is a link to the blower:
