Forestry Helmet System is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from HELMET IS FINE/HEARING PROTECTION NOT I have an earlier model of this helmet, the 886-0102 that appears to be identical, Never a problem with the helmet. The only problem is with the way the hearing protectors connect with the helmet that are the same on this helmet. The plastic pivots routinely break. I do not subject the helmet to abuse. I expect better from Stihl

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This helmet works well for me. Helmet does what it's supposed to do. I do not have any of the issues listed in reviews before me. I'd give it an A+

Rated 3 out of 5 by from very good, and bad Bought one about 8-9 years ago, thought it was the bees-knees. The screen instead of plexiglass is a great idea - doesn't scratch or cloud. It hinges out of the way. I prefer it to safety goggles, as while chainsawing, you can still get hit in the rest of your face by chips, etc, and it doesn't fog up. The helmet has always met my needs - I'm not just a homeowner, but involved heavily in FireWise and an infestation of spruce-bark-beetles left us with thousands of standing dead spruce, and a lot of property to clear back from homes and electric lines. That bright orange color keeps them from getting lost. However. The earmuffs, while a good idea, are chintzy. I'm on my second pair and now one of them is broken. The attachment at the helmet is what goes/breaks. So you have to find a pair of muffs that swivel so you can put the strap at the back of your neck. Yes, i use those foam ear plugs too. The headband adjuster is also prone to breaking - cheap plastic - it seems to have stripped. No, I'm not in the habit or dropping them or throwing them around or letting branches hit them. If i was a pro logger, i wouldn't buy these. It is probably worth it for the homeowner who uses it very occasionally.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for head and face protection not so good on hearing protection. I've had and used this product for several years, mostly used for trimmer work, Keeps debris out of your face, the hearing muffs are not a good fit and do not form a good seal around the ears, so not so good on hearing protection. The good news is you can get replacement parts for them. I think next time I'll try the pro series.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from NICE HELMET, POOR HEARING PROTECTION Helmet is light, comfortable and very adjustable. Face screen works well and doesn't impair vision. However, the hearing protection is HIGHLY INADEQUATE due to the fact that it will not fit tightly enough to seal out unwanted (even at highest "+" tension setting) and dangerous sound levels. Secondary ear "plugs" are required to save your hearing from long-term damage. Buy the Pro-Mark model instead, or wear ear plugs 100% of the time you use this Forestry model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have about 800 feet of flower beds, driveway and walkways that I edge every week. It doesn't matter how careful I try to be I still catch a lot of debris in the face. I have had this helmet for two years and won't edge or do any chain saw work without it. The sound reduction and face protection are great. I have several hundred hours of use with none of the problems experienced by other reviewers.
