The Optrel p550 is an astonishingly good helmet. Optrel is well known in the industry for their high quality Swiss engineering and the p550 continues that trend. The hood is part of their mid-range lineup but it performs like one of their premiums. With razor sharp clarity and super comfortable headgear this helmet wont let you down.  The p550 is equipped with external controls that allow you to adjust your settings without flipping up the hood. Its lightweight will make you forget you’re even wearing a helmet so you can weld all day without even thinking about it. The solar powered lens is backed by batteries so there’s no need to turn it on or off, it just works. If you want to stand out from all the same old black helmets, the Optrel p550 comes in several other shell graphics: Lizard, Tribal and Bulldog. Optrel welding helmets is one brand that never disappoints.
