    Don't own one

    Was in the market for one recently and read bad reviews aplenty online about them...

    Decided to go with a competitor fabric shell with leather sleeves

    Love it

        I have one and like it, but I am not a pro welder, and do not use it every day. The reason I purchased it was because I was getting shocked from my TIG machine and the leather sleeves provide a better barrier, insulation leaning on the table.

          I am a hobbiest, I'm just looking for something better than my cotton shirt with a million holes burned in it. I have a leather jacket that I use when I'm doing stick but its way to hot. I mostly do mig and tig once or twice a week( on my welding table in my garage).

            I wear t's, cloth welding sleeves, and good gloves.

            I have two Miller welding jackets, wear the blue one when the weather is a little cool and the leather one when I want to strut.

              This one

              Nice and cool yet still protects arms. Also has scribe pockets in sleeves/shoulder area

              I am not a pro welder but an enthusiastic hobby welder

                  I weld for a.living
                  And use miller jackets & gloves
                  The cloth blue jackets are very good and comfortable in my opinion.
                  From the tall neck protection
                  To the high quality buttons. I use to wear generic brand and other name brands. I've notice that the seams don't come apart. + they. Hold up well to grinding .
