I always use it when we are cutting the grass in the summer. Even if you wear a helmet, even with only a protective surface it will not get in the way because it is thin. It makes me sweaty and cool when the wind blows. It usually hangs and hangs behind, and when the worms and grass splash, I use it to cover the face as shown in the photograph. The price is a bit higher than those of the all mesh type, but I think that coolness is on.
