Iím very pleased with this hat. It is comfortable to wear and the built in visor is very useful, as Iím continually misplaying my safety specs!

Its great to have a hard hat with a visor, be warned there are two protective plastic covers which need removing from the visor, otherwise it appears foggy LOL This hard hat is vented and the adjustable helmet harness is great ! Sometimes I wear a pony tail, sometimes my hair down so having a hard hat which is so easily adjustable is a big plus !
It would be great if the manufacturer could also do a tinted visor for sunny days. Otherwise I need to use tinted protective sunglasses with the hard hat.
