Yeah I really dig the design; its black so it won't look dirty as easily. The big viewable area is what I like most about the techical aspect of it.

It ran me $350, but again, Uncle Sam was to thank!

Damn... I need me one of those auto darkening ones. So nice compared to my standard hood. Love the new design that Miller did too.... they didn't have that one when I was looking at them last year.
