Have a question?
What is the size of the viewing area
The viewing area is 50mm X 100mm. This equates to 10% larger than a standard 2″ X 4″ lens. If viewing area size is your most important feature you should check out our panoramaxx series of hoods.
Will the isofit headgear work with the vegaview 2.5?
Yes, the isofit headgear is compatible with all Optrel hoods.

I’ve been an Optrel user for well over ten years now. My first helmet finally died after about 8 years of everyday use. I ordered the new Vegaview 2.5, and while the original helmet was great, this one blows it away. Great field of view. Crystal clear vision. Amazing helmet. I recommend Optrel to anybody that’s looking for a new welding helmet.

I have the Vegaview now for over 5 years and it is still my favorite helmet for Tig welding. I have also the Panoramaxx round about 4 years and i use it for Mig welding, but for Tig i love the Vegaview. Next one will be the Crystal 2.0.
