    I have one of these but donít use it very often, so canít really comment much on it but recon itís probably similar to the Trend Airsheild as the small battery is on the top.

    It took me a little while to get used to the Trend, learnt to stand with my head upright, not bending my head forwards, no problems after wards.

    I checked the Spec on the Trend Pro and it weighs virtually 1kg. I reckon that's quite a lot to have on your head.

    I have the Axminster one of these and find it is nice and light as well as comfortable, I have worn it for a good 6 hours without any problems. Just check the filter for what you are using it with.
    The battery does last as long as stated.
    I also brought the visor protectors to save the main face shield from scratches and the like as well as ordering the outer filters, I should have brought the main filters at the same time so at least I have them when needed. So far not needed to change the filters or outer shield protectors yet.
    I have had a piece fly off the lathe and hit it full on with no damage to the shield only my pride dented

    I had the Axminster version of the JSP Power cap but sent it back for a refund as it did not meet the requirements for working in hardwood.
    I got the Trend and it is so much better as far as the quality of air I get to breath. The face seal is way better and air flow appears to be better.
    I wish I had gone for the trend first though, after using the power cap I realise just how heavy the trend is. It is till ok to use, it works and I can turn for full days with no problems.

    I have a Trend.
    It is sitting in a box somewhere. Heavy and putting that shroud on is a pain.
    I now use a 3M hat and an industrial strength face shield with a resp-o-rator.
    Easier to put on and remove.
    The flimsy Trend shield will not stop much.

    While I agree with the many comments there are a few things to remember about "respiratory protection" and "eye / face protection"

    You will see from the advertising that many are sold as a respirators, they reduce the likelihood of dust entering your lungs.

    There are sold for the DIY and industrial markets. it usually identifies what they are for in the reference. That is a key area to be aware of.

    Every manufacturer for the UK has to supply the units under EU legislation (Until brexit. ) and they have EN numbers for each of the safety standards. We adopts them so usually have a BS EN number so it shows that we have adopted them.

    As for respiratory and eye protection they have been adopted and have a BSEN number

    BSEN 12941 for respiratory

    http://www.hse.gov.uk/foi/internalop...200903app4.pdf

    BSEN 166 for eye Protection..

    http://www.hse.gov.uk/foi/internalop...200903app3.pdf

    That's simple isn't it..

    Well it is! Providing you know what you are looking for, each of the BSEN numbers are followed by a letter for reference to what they can be used for and what "other" protection they offer. The basic respiratory protection for the powered hoods are supplied for the basic needs of respiratory protection and NOT face / Eye protection.

    So understanding what you need form a face shield or respiratory protection you need to ensure that both standards are supplied in your selection.

    One of the reasons I chose the M400 Versaflow series, its an industrial unit that has high impact visor and high respiratory protection, its expensive but what price do you put on your heath?

    Phil the Airsheiled pro details are below, so in reality even though you say "it feeling is flimsy" it should offer medium energy impact.
    But what are you mesuring it against, have you ha experience of other units that may feel firmer?

    Eye protection= BS EN 166 (Medium Energy Impact)
    Respiratory protection (NPF50)= BS EN 12941 THP2 Assigned protection factor= APF20

    Just my thoughts, but make sure you select the right piece of PPE for the job you are doing.

    EDIT
    One thing I did forget to put on here was you can use a lower impact screen but wear higher impact safety glasses.
    One of the ways around using lower standard face shields.

    Spot on, PPE is the last form of defence..

    Only use it if the extractor / vacuum unit is not taking the dust away. But do you know how good your system is
