from personal experience, I now concentrate on PREVENTING kickbacks.
I no longer cut anything smaller than my arm freehand – I will use the sled for those.

I would look for something with a marriage of a hockey mask, major league catchers mask,
lumberjack chainsaw helmet, football helmet, etc etc etc – LOL yeah, a little overkill – - –

but, to shield the eyes, nose and throat from flying lumber is critical.
damage to the hands, arms and torso is easier to work around than a banged up face.

John, with your track record, if I may, I recommend this headgear for you.

And maybe a good idea to follow up with some further protection as well, (just don’t wear the gloves) :)
