    comfortable hard hat

    I recently took a osha 30 training course and learned that all saftey equipment shall be worn comfortably, well I dont know about you but wearing a hard hat all day sucks. If any one can post a link to a more comfortable hard hat than the 10 dollar one that most companies give out please do>>>>>

    I always chuckle at guys complaining about hard hats. I've never minded wearing one although I admit it does take re-getting-used-to if I go without one for awhile. Safety glasses are my bane. In sixteen years I've yet to find a comfortable pair.....almost tolerable maybe but certainly not comfortable.

    To contribute, Grainger has a ton to choose from. I've bought several from there although we are only required to wear ANSI type I and not all the time at that. I personally like MSA hats.
    Deserve's got nothin' to do with it.

    What does the. MSA stand for?
    I ordered prescription safety glasses with full wrap around. I had never seen a pair like them before. The sample pair were very comfortable. We'll see. Pun intended. $$$.

    I like these, I have had a terrible time finding one that wont fog up when you get hot and sweaty. So far, these are the best. As an added bonus, the reader part doesn't interfere with normal wear. Keeps me from carrying reading glasses and safety glasses.

    That is the one we wear.(Or looks like it) I know this is hard to believe, but once you get used to it, you will (and I have) forget it is on your head.

    MSA stands for the MSA company. They called themselves Mine Safety Appliances, and probably still are called that officially, but it seems they want to be known as MSA. Link: http://us.msasafety.com/

    I wear the ultra lite series hat from Fibre Metal.
    Some people are like slinkies. They serve absolutely no useful purpose. But still put a smile on your face when pushed down a flight of stairs.

    I chuckle too! At myself as well as others. You see a guy complain about hard hats and safety glasses on the job site, and watch them drive home in a ball cap and sunglasses. To a large extent the problem is phsycological. I suffer from it right along with everyone else.


    I know what I don't know, and I know where to go to find it!
