@Walnut Beast
For what they cost they should last longer then 5 years, hereís a good question why donít more use aluminum hard hats?
Are there aluminum hard hats that are still made in the USA?
Baileys has two styles full brim and hard hat. But no thanks! Without integrated ear protection, face shield or different shades that flip up out of the way thatís all in one package itís pretty tuff to beat that fits and is extremely comfortable that you want to wear!

Expiration or no expiration having head gear on your head is what counts. I bet if there were independent tests on the helmets after five years they would be just fine. I doubt many people are throwing their head gear out after the expiration. A good company insurance policy and old inventory roll over at companies that use them
They do make face shields for we have one they come in both a clear shield or mesh screen. As far as hearing protection goes ear plugs are the standard but I do seem to remember seeing an add on deal with muffs.

I would say about the same or maybe lighter than a typical plastic hardhat with add-on face shield and earmuffs. But the comfort makes them seem lighter whether it actually is or not. I don't have experience with aluminum hardhats.
