I have a 3/4 with face shields for me and the wife and a half just to put around in. I used to ride with just a ball cap until I had my wreck. I end up rolling for some distance and still had my cap and sun glasses on. After that I started wearing my lids. We were on one ride and a passing horse trailer kicked up a rock that went over the windshield and over my head and hit the wife in the head between the eyes just under the helmet. I bought the wife her face shield the next day.
