I used to get blasted in the face a lot while arc gouging. If you're not careful, its likely to com back at you, bounce off a wall (or whatever) behind you, then enter through the back of your helmet. What most guys to do prevent this is take a piece of leather or green welding coat and tape it on top of your helmet so it covers the back / side of your head down to your neck. A lot of guys also hang the same thing off the front of their hood to prevent their neck fromk getting burnt.
