Chainsaw Mask w/ or w/o Helmet?
I was thinking about putting a chainsaw mask on my xmas list. I normally just wear headphones. Sometimes I get a plastic face shield out of the shop but it's always very hot here and you sweat into it, plus debris and it doesn't take long to turn into a mess you can't see thru.
So I was thinking about those wire-mesh-screen type shields which come with headphones and a helmet or just w/ headphones.
Q1: How does the mesh style work (compared to a plastic shield)? I'm thinking it can be more readily handled w/ gloved hands, not going to 'smear' etc...
Q2: With or without a helmet? The helmet would seem to add weight and heat and I only seem to use the saw once or twice a year is all these days. Helmet seems like overkill - it's not like I have all the safety chaps and such.
