There is a range of basic to professional welding helmets at Baker’s Gas and Welding that meet the needs of anyone from first time welders to experienced veterans. While you can check out the low prices on the full range of brand name welding helmets available at Baker’s, there are several top helmets that stand out based sales numbers.
Here is a roundup of the best-selling welding helmets from Baker’s. All offer excellent auto-darkening technology, 1/1/1/1 or 1/1/1/2 clarity with minimal green tint, and an excellent fit for wearing all day on the job. Most importantly, if you’re using an old hood, the clarity, light weight, and comfort of these newly designed helmets will be a game changer.
Optrel Crystal Welding Helmet
The Optrel Crystal is one of the most expensive welding helmets available at Baker’s Gas and Welding, but for some welders specializing in TIG welding, it’s an essential part of their gear. This helmet’s excellent clarity, completely free from distortion, and fit can more than make up for the hefty price tag for welders who value all day comfort and precise welds.
Offering a full range of shade options, the Crystal automatically adapts to changing light conditions, with autopilot switching between shades 4 to 12. When you need a quick shift in your shades, the twilight function seamlessly adapts for optimal clarity. Dark mode also offers a high contrast view of the weld puddle.
For a limited time the Baker’s Bundle offer with the Crystal helmets includes a free gear bag and nearly 50% off essential accessories, including a 5/pk Optrel Expert Outside Cover Lens, 5/pk Optrel Inside Cover Lens, and a Black Stallion Tigster TIG Welding Glove.
Speedglas 9100xxi Welding Helmet
Welders working in industrial settings will value the sturdy design of the Speedglas 9100xxi welding helmet that offers a wider view (2.8″ x 4.2″) for excellent peripheral vision. With 1/1/1/2 clarity, it reduces green tint to the viewing area for a true color view.
The external grind mode button makes it easy to swap out your shades while working, while the shade 5 filter offers a safe, dependable peripheral view. This helmet is designed to be durable and long lasting under the toughest conditions.
Optrel Panoramaxx Welding Helmet
For a welding helmet with excellent clarity, a wide view, and a strikingly comfortable fit, the Optrel Panoramaxx is worth trying out. Fitting close to the face and floating above the nose, the Panoramaxx can feel like a pair of goggles, enlarging the field of vision six times while distributing the weight evenly for a comfortable fit.
It also takes auto-darkening to a whole new level with a unique 5-sensor array that adjusts the shade level from the 2.5 shade of inactive mode to 5-12 shade options.
ESAB Sentinel Welding Helmet
The ESAB Sentinel is a lower cost helmet that offers an excellent viewing range and an extremely comfortable fit with its 5-point HALO headgear that evenly distributes its light weight. The appealing design is more than a cool look, it effectively shifts spatter and heat away from the viewing area.
Welders especially love its touch screen display, real color technology, and easily changed amber lens, making it one of the most popular helmets at Baker’s Gas and Welding. The Sentinel offers the range of view and comfort of a more expensive helmet while still offering a sturdy, autodarkening helmet for industrial applications.
Miller Digital Infinity Welding Helmet
If you want to max out your viewing area, the Digital Infinity welding helmet from Miller Electric offers a 13.4 square-inch view in a wide screen format. Using Miller’s new ClearLight lens technology, you’ll have minimal green tint with 1/1/1/2 clarity.
With newly redesigned head gear, you’ll have excellent comfort and the convenience of digital controls for easily adjusting your shade, delay or sensitivity while welding. Finally, each of Miller’s premium welding helmets includes X-Mode for better shade responses in a variety of welding positions.
Miller Digital Elite Welding Helmet
The Miller Digital Elite welding helmet offers many of the same features and shade optoins as the Digital Inifinity, including the digital interface, upgraded headgear, and X-Mode. However, it comes with a slightly smaller viewing area (9.22 inches) that allows it to offer a slightly lighter weight.
You’ll still benefit from an extremely clear view and Miller’s ClearLight lens technology.
