    I usually run the sensitivity as low as I can on any auto helmet, usually works for me and rarely get flashed. If I get the flickers then I bump it up a bit.

      I'll read that again when it gets capitalization and punctuation, so I'm not straining to read it.

        That's why you need more than one helmet. I have an old school Hobart (non auto dark) just for that reason...Bob

          I don't think the classic series has an adjustable sensitivity feature. Try positioning your flashlight so the is coming from behind you instead.
