If you read "The Zombie Survival Guide" by Max Brooks you will notice that he says that you should not wear a helmet because the zombies need it more than you do, but think about it.
You're in close range (3-5 feet)of a zombie and they are about to attack you. You must attack or they will end your life, but you have to make sure that you do not ingest any part of the,hopefully, soon to be eliminated zombie. You pull out your super awesome shotgun and blast his/her skull to smithereens, but chunks of that jolly dead being fly at your face and you accidently take in some blood and a few hours later your knee deep into your partner's insides.
Well that isn't good for anyone and it could've not happened if you just would've worn a helmet. True it my take away your peripheral vision, but you wont need it if your party is looking in those directions and even if a zed head got close enough it is just going to bite the helmet and then get its brains blown in.
Long story short:
- Protects head/neck
- Doesn't allow you to ingest fluids from enemy
- Can deflect glare (depending on brand)
- Can be used as a weapon
- Is wiped easier than your eyes (blood in eyes takes much longer than blood on visor)
- Can make your head hot
- Peripheral vision is shot

When Z-Day comes I have a plan if I get time to find metals and make them into a suit of custom armour. These armour sets could fairly easily be made with the right equipment (you could probably get the equipment from a high school tech department and the materials from lots of things, like metal from abandoned cars). Just a thought, I may post the details for one of these suits of armour at a later date.
