wear your old helmet. My Bauer 4000 from 10 years ago is the best helmet ever.
You shouldn’t have an issue finding a used half-shield… just beware of scratches and shit… it makes visibility on the ice shotty. I’d buy a new one to save myself the hassle. They usually go for around $30+ depending on brand/quality.
Ya, I’m probably going to pull out my old Bauer 4000 tonight and try and clean it up. It’s been sitting in my garage for years with body filler dust etc all in it. Maybe I’ll give it a little bath, lol.
I also have an old half shield but it’s beat to shit. tough to even see thru it. I have to pickup a new stick too, so I’ll most likely grab a new shield when i go.
