As a guy that plays with his glasses on, I will never stray from the cage. The half-visor is useless if my glasses get knocked off in the middle of a shift and still leaves me vulnerable to an errand stick. The fishbowl offers almost no breath-ability and just adds another layer to fog up.
I took the cage off for *one* game (opting to go half-visor) and took an errand stick to the mouth, resulting in a root canal. The cage went back on right after that procedure and it's not coming off for as long as I'm playing hockey.
I think I'm also one of the few guys who wears his helmet/cage properly. The chin cup rests on my chin (what a crazy thought, right?) and my helmet is tightened so that it actually protects my head and absorbs some impact if/when I get hit with something.
Then again, I'm a hack that played D/E league before switching to purely pickup. I figure if you're playing B or even C level hockey there's a bit of a stigma around the full cage.
