Northern Industrial Protective Abrasive Blasting Hood with Bump Cap
Bought this hood with the intention of blasting an old hand water pump. Just like everything else these days it is made in China. I have not had a chance to use it yet due to many other projects.
The hood is basically a plastic construction helmet with a stitched cloth hood. The hood has a one side opening to allow you to remove/insert clear lenses for viewing your work.
I gave the hood three stars because it seemed a little "cheap". It does appear that it would work as directed. If your gonna blast on a daily basis, you will want to purchase a different hood. If your the weekend warrior or part time blaster it should serve your purpose.

Over all this hood performs well. The only down side I found is the quality of the lense holding material. As with all blast protection, the plex glass window gets used up quickly. This product uses a substandard material which holds the lense. After changing out the window lense only 3 times, the black strip tore. I now have to hold the lense in place with masking tape. The material in which the lense slides into is also very loose fitting which allows sand to filter inside the hood. This defect corrected would make the hood A1 for blasting.

This Northern protective abrasive blasting hood with bump cap is a must for sand blasting it is very confortable and easy to use keeps that sand out of eyes and ears and also from going down your shirt collar that bump cap will save your head in tight spots. The vents let plenty of air in to keep lens from fogging

Good for the Price
Excellent hood for the price. Doesnt slip around on your head. Completely protects face and neck. Would buy another but I don't think this one will wear out!

Sand Blast Hood
Best price of blasting hood around. Light weight so it does not bother you to wear it, yet it still provides the protection necessary.
