I was wearing a half shield and mouth guard and thought that was ok. I left it off one night when I bought a new helmet (didn't fit well). After that I never put it on again. I played a faw years like that. I got some cuts and stiches but didn't think about going back. Then one night I get hit from behind (accidently by a teammate) and go face first into the end boards. Badly broken nose, concussion, swollen face, surgery and lost time at work. After that I went back to the cage for the first time since high school. I don't mind it and it didn't take long to adjust to it. I hated the way the shield blurred things and fogged up.

While I wouldn't go back to a half shield. I would say go with withever makes you feel comfortable. If you feel the need to wear one then by all means do so.
