So im a newbie and looking to buy a helmet...is open face or closed 4 freefly best?

Iv only ever jumped the open faced crapo helmets from the DZ. Im going to buy my own soon and want to learn a lot of freefly stuff.
Is open faced or closed face helmets better for freefly?
Or does it even matter?

Thanks
-Meg

The positions of your body don't care whether or not there is a lid covering your face. Makes no difference.

Some people have had full faces where their worn and/or cheap visor flips open on them. Most people do not have that problem and if they did, it could happen on their bellies too.

Find one that you find comfortable and jump as much as you can.
