reflection issues with supplied air hood

hello everyone,

need some feedback.

about a year ago, i purchased this from the autobody store with the full hood option:

Autobody Store: <B>Hobbyair and Pro-Air</B>

len has been very good about supporting the product and i have NO complaints. he has been prompt in returning email questions and even replaced a defective hood.

but now that i am painting more - and in general learning more about what i don't know ... i am starting to notice certain issues -

by far my biggest issue is reflectivity with the hood face sheild, especially when i have to paint at certain angles. the face shield lens protectors tend to make the situation worse!

in some situations - i either take off the lens protector - or switch to using a bandit respirator. neither option is good.

i am thinking about either switching out the hood for a full face mask or moving to another type of system all together - possibly like the one below.

Sa-100-psk Versaflo 3M

anyone have similar issues or advice on this subject.
