Take one with glass in the front -- it protects your eyes from a stray jighead.

You fish with a motorcycle helmet on?...and one with a glass shield? Interesting

I use the full head protection helmet. Covers head, face, and chin. The only problem is the face shield fogs up while stopped.

I have a Save Face mask I use in warmer months if raining or cool morning takeoff, but this time of year on a long run, full face helmet with flip up eye guard is best for me. I always thought it was kinda dumb until I drew a guy in a pro am years ago that had (2) in his boat.
I bought one before that next weekend...it's amazing how warm you stay compared to face shields or sock face masks.

You can find them on Craigslist pretty cheap

I was told years ago if you're going to wear a motorcycle helmet in a boat don't strap it.

^^^THIS^^^, and yes I have, works great on long winter runs offshore. Keeps spray off glasses too.
Get the one with chin guard and full face shield,

I use my Save Phace year round. With all the surgeries done on my right eye, it is really sensitive to wind and the Save Phase keeps bugs away too.

If you get thrown out of the boat the helmet fills with water. Could cause more problems than it solves.

Bc if you get thrown out of the boat your head is gonna come
Off! Water friction isn’t like cement... you want the helmet to
Come off if you get thrown out of the boat. I personally just wear a pair of clear ski goggles of raining...
