Cheap Harbor Freight. They work great. I put off getting one for years and I could kick myself for not doing it sooner.

I have been welding for a living for 35 years and I have tried the self darkening hoods and I rather use a regular welding hood . I have a a auto  hood I use if undercar and can not flip up and down but that is the only time I use it.
