X-mode, Weight and Sensors
X-mode – the Miller helmet comes with X-mode but it is a crap according to many reviewers on Amazon. Which means you will not get impressed with the X-mode. I assume it is just a rip off.
Weight – I will say it is a heavyweight Miller auto darkening welding helmet, which weighs approx. one pound. However, you will surely get the desired comfort from this welding helmet.
Sensors – the durable welding helmet has three sensors, 1 on each side and 1 on the bottom.
